How to Find Travel Deals

Travel Package or Direct Contacts?

Do you want to organise a trip on your own? Avoid all intermediaries? The first choice you will have to make is between:

  • Contacting all service providers directly (and doing everything yourself)
  • Purchasing a “package” travel offer that includes all the necessary services for the trip or holiday.

On this page, we talk about how this site can help you understand how to find “travel deals” that include all (or almost all) the necessary services. If you want to find information on how to organise a trip entirely independently, I recommend reading Planning a Trip and How to Travel Avoiding Intermediaries.

Finding Travel Deals

One of the main difficulties encountered in the phases of organising a trip independently (avoiding intermediaries) is that many do not know how to find convenient and satisfying travel deals.

Paying less does not always coincide with a great result! Low prices are inviting, but then, during the holiday, the discomforts and poor services might disappoint the expectations we had at the time of purchase.

The Importance of Using the Right Strategy When Choosing a Travel Offer

Travel Agents and Travel Agencies operate as professionals and have access to reserved price lists with prices dedicated to them.

In this way, each travel agency applies its markup (or operates according to its direct agreements with Tour Operators, Local Agents, or with tourist facilities) and proposes its “travel offer”.

Until a few years ago, the Travel Agency was the only intermediary to turn to organise a trip or a holiday and purchase services in distant countries and from operators impossible to reach without the intermediation of a professional.

For this reason, the price of travel offers is higher than the actual cost of the purchased services. At the same time, however, travel agencies offer guarantees (insurance, refunds, assistance) that justify the price difference.

So, what is the right formula to understand how to find convenient and satisfying travel deals?

The Innovation Introduced by the Internet

Today, the internet offers access to portals that select and compare all the travel deals available on the web and list them for users.

Thanks to this enormous availability of information, all users have access to travel offers very similar (if not even better) to those reserved for professionals.

Advantages Available Thanks to the Evolution of the Internet

By visiting these sites, users can decide to purchase travel offers directly from comparison sites or use the information collected to more calmly decide whether to buy from their trusted Travel Agency.

Reading the articles in our BLOG that we place in the category: “how to find travel deals”, you will find our reviews of comparison sites and advice on how to make the most of the opportunity that today is freely available to everyone.

Remember, however, that the final decision is always up to you, and sometimes, going back to the Travel Agency may represent the best choice!

Another Solution is Imminent

We are developing a new digital platform dedicated to organising trips and holidays entirely independently.

It is based on the principle of free and spontaneous sharing of information. It will be a real revolution in the global tourism sector.

We are forming a Community of Beta Testers whom we will ask to participate in the final phase of development.

They will be the first users we ask to sign up (for free and forever) to the new digital platform.

To this first group, we will ask to test the new features introduced and send us feedback and suggestions.
