How do I get value when travelling?
The most effective way of getting the best value for money when planning your holiday generally is to book early – this will enable you to benefit from the early booking offers, low deposits and free child places.
Another method to get the best price for your holiday is to advance register your details with your independent agent, who will contact you once the prices are released.
This option is used mostly on long-haul bookings such as Florida.
With all of the above options booking through your local independent agent will give you extra benefits.
They will offer you unbiased advice and they, too, will have offers for early bookers.
They will also prepare you through the various stages of the booking, advising you of any visa requirements, insurance cover, car parking, lounge passes – and lots more!
If you can’t book early try to be flexible with your dates, where possible, and the choice of destinations, as this will enable the agent to source the best deal for you.
Your agent may suggest incorporating low cost airlines as part of your package to get the best price – this enables you to choose your own duration, your own choice of baggage, seat allocation, etc.
Again, by booking through your agent, you are safe in the knowledge that your booking is secure and protected.
In many of our European destinations the All Inclusive option often proves to be the best choice to get value when travelling, especially for families.
You can give your budget to your Agent and they will find the best option with the budget you have given.
For those travelling to Turkey or Bulgaria the popular options are self-catering or bed and breakfast, which gives you choices of where to eat – a way of seeing the resort where you are staying.
Finally, once you are in a position to book your holiday or wanting advice on your proposed holiday, call into your agent to get the best options with the best prices – and the knowledge that your booking will be fully protected!
