Tips for Booking a Holiday Online

With summer in full swing, most of us are itching to pack our suitcases and spend some much needed time glued to a sun lounger, sipping on cocktails by a pool somewhere exotic. You can find really great late deals at this time of year, and the majority of the best deals are found online.

If you’ve never booked a holiday online before, or have done but it didn’t quite work out as you’d hoped, it can be a little off putting. However, with a few hints and tricks, you can soon be packing your bikini and heading off knowing you’ve saved a fortune. Here’s a list of some of the best tips for booking a holiday online.

Do your research on the company

There are countless online holiday companies out there, so it can be difficult to know which one to choose. It’s obviously tempting to go with the one that provides you with the best offer in terms of money, but this isn’t the only thing you should take into consideration when making your choice.

Check out their reputation, and one of the best ways to do this is by looking at their real customer reviews – just like Bravofly Reviews – to get a good insight into how they work.

Shop around

Don’t be tempted to just go for the first good deal you see, because you could find something even better after another few clicks online. If you’ve found a hotel that you particularly like, type it into Google and see if you can find it cheaper on a different site.

Hotel specialist sites like Trivago often have really great, competitive deals too.

Weigh up your package options

Buying your flights, hotel, transfers, insurance etc all in one go can sound appealing as it’s certainly a very straightforward way of booking your holiday, but it’s highly unlikely to give you the best deal.

Instead, you may find yourself a lot better off if you book them separately from sites that specialise in those particular areas.

Look elsewhere for cheaper transfer options

Transfers in particular can be really expensive, and can really rack up the price of your holiday. However, if you’re prepared to do a little research, you could find that just by hopping on a bus/train, or even in a local taxi the other side can be much cheaper than organised transfers.

Public transport will always be your cheapest option, and there are some great apps to help you with that, such as Moovit.

Don’t forget your insurance

Buying good holiday insurance is absolutely vital, regardless of where you’re going or for how long. It definitely shouldn’t be something that is forgotten or ignored completely, especially as you can get really good rates from a whole host of different sites nowadays too, with even high street supermarkets and banks offering competitive rates.
