Purchasing group holiday – saving or scam?

Posted: August 17th, 2013 | Author: | Travel

Group buying allows us to save on a wide variety of shopping. For some time, those who receive newsletters from these sites, you will have notice that a very large part of all kinds of such offers are domestic and foreign trips. Do they allow us to save money in a similar way as discounts to eat pizza for half price?

Unfortunately, it happens very rarely. In general, these seemingly favorite properties are in themselves a flaw, which is able to disqualify a trip in the eyes of most willing people. Provided of course that they do not delight in slogans and not miss relevant information. This is why you must read thoroughly the entire offer.

What can upset us in such offer? Let’s start from the date. Offered tour can take us in a really beautiful place. Unfortunately, they lose a lot of charm in the dead season, when almost no tourists and tourist facilities and attractions do not exist. Although trips to the beautiful beaches are very often offered in the middle of winter, they are normally advertised pictures anyway so full of sunshine, almost blinding. Pay attention to that.

Another of the things you are worried about are the extra costs. And then you have to pay for a guide, and the entrance fees, and a load or access to some places. In practice, it may be that with the addition of these “extra” cost of our trip will cost as much as a full-fledged tour organized by a travel agency in normal conditions.

Is it worth to view such offers? Sometimes we hit something very interesting at a low price, so you can look. But you should keep your eyes open and read all the small leaflets, and always see what we have in the price, and what we have to spend money out of pocket.
