It’s possible to have a sale of holiday items, so why not a holiday sale? At Co-operative Travel we pride ourselves on providing the widest range of bargain holidays, to destinations thrpughout Europe and worldwide.
Today, there’s no shortage of cheap holidays on the internet – but you need to be sure those cut-price package holidays are the bargain they appear. It’s essential to book with a reputable ABTA or ATOL-protected travel agent, or you could end up out of pocket, with no holiday at all. However, so long as you stick to reputable agents, there are some great deals to be had.
Booking last minute holidays gives you the opportunity to visit some of the world’s most spectacular destinations, often enjoying a superior level of luxury at a budget level price. Tour companies “bulk buy” their package holidays, and booking at the last minute means you get the pick of the holidays which have been overstocked, or maybe attracted less attention. This doesn’t mean a holiday sale offloads inferior products; far from it. In fact, last minute sale holidays can often be very superior indeed.
While booking last minute holidays can be a bit of a gamble in terms of availability, it’s one that can usually pay off. Many people find the choice of package holidays available online overwhelming, and end up worrying they’ve made the wrong choice. While a holiday sale might mean there’s less to choose from, this makes it easier to choose in the first place, especially if you’re not too fussy about where you go. Plus, it means more choice than you’ll find in most high street travel agents – at a much lower price.
One bit of advice is to read carefully through what’s included on each of the bargain holidays in a holiday sale. For example, are flights included, or is it accommodation only? Booking separate flights can negate any savings. Also, some package holidays have resort restrictions – for example, the hotel may be inaccessible to buggies or wheelchairs.
