Why travellers prefer Blue Cross
Have you had enough of the cold weather yet? Itching to get away and go somewhere warm? Most Canadians are in this boat at this time of the year. Most of us also don't want to pay an arm and a leg to go away on vacation.
For many of us, finding a discounted rate or a last-minute travel deal is the only way we can afford to go away during the winter. The good news is are plenty of travel websites and agencies that offer travel deals. You just need to know how to get them.
Most people assume that waiting until the last minute is the best way to get the least expensive vacation deal, but this is not always the case. In fact, it is now widely known that the best time to book a winter vacation is about two months in advance, four to six weeks before departure being an ideal time to find lower prices.
This is not to say that you still can’t get great last-minute deals. It’s just a good idea to start looking well in advance for vacation savings. You never know when a good deal could be available.
While everyone wants to get the best deal possible, making a vacation decision based on price alone is not advisable. In addition to looking at what you get for the price you’re quoted, make sure you are aware of any taxes you will have to pay. Keep an eye on things like flight departure times, length of stay, connecting flights, quality of the hotel or resort, and potential hidden fees when considering your winter vacation options.
Make sure you are fully aware of all the details of your trip before booking. Also, don’t forget to purchase a travel insurance policy.
