Golf In Algarve: How To Get A Good Discount Ordering A Vacation Package
So you want to take a golfing holiday in the Algarve, but you’re worried about the cost involved. Some people possess a natural skill in getting good deals on just about anything—including vacation time. We’ve picked some of these people’s brains and have come up with four tips on how to bag yourself a super awesome holiday for less.
Shop and compare
One tip that seems popular is that online window shopping is the best instrument in landing the best deal. When you ask four or five different people for pricing, you are sure to get varying prices. This will give you a good idea of who is offering a reasonable rate, and who is trying to rip you off.
Just remember to compare apples with apples when taking this approach. If one package is cheaper than the other, check to see if there’s something excluded in the offer that the others have included.
Opt for a package deal
It’s pointless spending extra on travelling expenses, accommodation, and golf course bookings by ordering them separately. Enquire about packages and be sure you know what those packages include. Even more important, know what aspects of the vacation you want and need. Don’t let someone sell you a package that has perks you didn’t really want to begin with. Analyze everything.
Ask for discount
There’s a boldness possessed by deal finders that others don’t have. All of the people we spoke to say that they have no qualms in asking for a discount. For many of us, it seems like an embarrassing thing to do, but bartering is actually a good habit to learn in any industry. If you don't ask, you don’t get. Besides, don’t you want some extra spending money when you arrive in Algarve?
Skip the travel agent
Travel agents do a lot to take the headache out of booking a vacation, but the cost involved often come with its own headache. By putting in a few extra hours in to the planning of your holiday, you can easily bypass a travel agency and do the bookings yourself. All it takes is a phone, email, and a bit of logic. So if you are under the misconception that a travel agent is a necessity for booking a golfing holiday in Algarve, think again.
