Follow these tips if you want to get the best deals and bargains for the summer holidays
Travel is reactivated this summer with the relaxation of travel restrictions. Although the uncertainty of possible changes in the measures against Covid-19 makes Spaniards distrust, and
this 2021 they will opt for last minute trips.
In fact, according to the Acierto.com portal,
2 out of 5 Spaniards will book their holidays less than 10 days in advance. However, this has become a trend that has been increasing in recent years to try to
find bargains and cheap deals on flights and hotels. This is one of the reasons why vacation travelers will not plan their trips to other places in advance. Specifically, July and August are the months that the trips will take place with less anticipation.
In addition, from Acierto they point out that the majority will choose to visit other cities in Spain, around 70% and 90% will prefer national destinations. Travel to other countries involves following the instructions and regulations of other countries such as PCR tests, possible quarantines or procedures such as the Covid passport.
How to find the best bargains and travel deals
One of the most used resources to find the best
bargains and offers among users is to resort to hotel and flight comparators, since in this way it is possible to
save up to 40%. From Acierto they point out how we can get cheaper last minute trips.
Search offers and not destinations. This is important because the bargains are not based on that specific place we want to visit. For this reason, although the variety is usually quite wide and the countries that offer are the most traditional points, we must have less qualms when looking for our vacations. From several websites it is allowed to make the query by entering the days that interest us and specifying a price limit
Enable alerts. In general, the best offers come unexpectedly. Therefore, a good alternative to be notified of all the bargains is to configure the alerts. In addition, there are already other ways to find out instantly such as telegram channels and specialized platforms in this type of last minute offers.
Choose dates with less occupancy and less visited places. They advise choosing the months that receive less tourism to find real bargains. Although this is more difficult because July and August is the date set to spend the holidays. Another option is to opt for less crowded destinations since the demand is lower and the price will be cheaper.
Make stops. To get cheaper flights, they recommend not making direct flights. Opting for flights with a stopover reduces the price of travel to our destination. With regard to air travel, it is usually cheaper to book at secondary airports.
Use a VPN to search for the trip. A good trick to hide the point from where we do the searches is to navigate through a virtual private network. It is a way that web pages do not know our location and modify prices.
Do not include baggage check. During our search it is better not to add the information of the suitcases that we will take since it tends to increase the prices of the tickets.
Have patience in the search. Sometimes finding a good deal requires spending more time and not falling into despair, but keep in mind that there is nothing more rewarding than traveling the world without scratching a lot on your pocket.
