Pre-fixe – or a la carte? Save Money with Travel Bundles

November 13,2018 | Lifestyle

Big things come in small packages. Sometimes savings do, as well. In most cases, bundled travel packages cost less than booking airfare, hotel, and transportation separately. Buying travel bundles saves money, time and energy. From online agencies to escorted tour companies, their bulk buying power and local knowledge results in cost-effective deals you may not be able to find on your own. The unparalleled experience of their years of global travel translates to amazing cliff notes of where to go, what to see and what to do, including the best hotels, activities, restaurants, and local tours.

 

Want a sunny vacay in Cancun? Covered. Europe on your radar? There’s a vacation package with your name on it, including flights, private transfers, hotels, activities, excursions and even meals. When your trip includes everything you need to travel with ease, just settle back with your umbrella-topped drink and relax. Even if your vacation is merely a long weekend, there’s a travel package that will help you make the most of it.  Seasoned or newbie traveler, bundled vacations make travel make planning easier, your destination more expansive and your savings bigger.

 

Disneyland may be the perfect multigenerational trip but can topple budgets. With a Disney vacation package, you could be taking selfies with the grands at Cinderella’s castle or the Epcot sphere. And packages come with perks like early admissions to the park, gift cards for resort purchases, character dining, and discounts on in-park tours. If, instead, a grown-up only long weekend is in order, save on both flight and hotel with a Las Vegas vacation package. Packed with neat extras like dining discounts, room upgrades, nightclub promotions, show tickets, and dining deals, who wouldn’t want a getaway package in the Entertainment Capital of the World?

 

Wonder if a package is too good to be true? When in doubt, price it out. Since the federal government now mandates that the price of any flight or package with a flight include all taxes and fees, comparing costs is simple. Tour companies, with established local vendor relationships, can offer great prices on hotels, museum entries and guided tours. Many meals are also often included in your tour package, so your savings can be . . . delicious.

 

Escorted tours take care of all of the planning for you, so let your next vacation come to you. A carefully crafted escorted tour allows you to wake up, check your itinerary and let your expert guide get you under the skin of your destination with exciting activities and transportation included. Your tour manager’s extensive knowledge enables them to share fascinating details about your destination’s history, food, and culture. That deeper understanding and appreciation of the places you visit are even more reason to consider a travel package with all the details built-in.

 

An escorted or hosted tour insures that you see all the landmarks, museums and attractions you came for. Pop-up strikes, bad weather or peak season tourist lines don’t deter tour guides from making sure you experience your must-sees. Your travel guru introduces you to hidden gems and locations not in your guidebooks, enriching your experience with unforgettable stories of each landmark. From securing luggage and local transportation, to interpreting the menu or reading confusing street signs, your savvy travel manager is a veritable vacation security blanket.

 

Whether your dream destination is Barcelona, Maui or Beijing, a bundled vacation package can immerse you in must-see sights and a variety of cultures, saving you money and stress along the way. From the ancient ruins of Greece to a warm Mexican beach or a Munich beer crawl, try a package deal this year for vacation fun and savings.
