I wanted an exotic holiday this year but I didn’t need to pay the earth for it. Some of the estimates that I got from package holiday companies were absolutely foolish and way outside of the budget I had allocated. I went to lots of package holiday companies, both on the internet and on the high street but they were literally over a thousand pounds more than I was prepared to pay, both since I really couldn’t afford it and because I simply did not consider that it really cost that much. I decided instead, to book my airport transfers, flights and lodging separately myself and it actually ended up coming in below my actual budget!
Should you want to spend less, this is really a good method to do it. I understood that travel agents added a premium but a few of the costs are astronomical, particularly the mark up on airport transfers I ‘ve been billed before. Before reserving my airport transfers or anything like that, the first thing I did was checked that the hotel I wanted to stay in was really available for the dates I wanted – clearly you need to do this first, after all – you do not want to book your airport transfers and flights and then find you’ve nowhere to stay. I found the hotels official website and sent then an enquiry email directly, they were prompt in responding as well as the price they quoted me was a fraction of that a travel agent would have billed me.
I then booked my flights and it is an effective way to spare money, I even preferred not to have an in-flight meal, after all – over GBP50 for two individuals is quite high-priced when you think about it, you can eat at a good restaurant for that cost. Why pay that when you are able to grab a bite in the airport for far less.
The final part was the airport transfers. Our destination was rather exotic and off the beaten track so to be honest I was half expecting airport transfers firms to not offer it but I was amazed to find that they all did.

I’d saved so much money with the flights and lodging that I made the decision to splash out on the airport transfers and reserved private transport but it was still fairly inexpensive for a 3 hour drive and the entire vacation came in less than my budget. I believed airport transfers were only for popular resorts however they offer transport in bunches of different more exotic places.
