WTN- In this revolutionary era of technology, internet and accessibility to explore the things most of us finalize our travel plans by their own way but still many of us access services of tour booking with a travel agent. In this case we should assure and recheck certain things before booking. Here are some important things:
Tour price comparison
Different tour operator’s offers identical packages for a particular tour in different rates. In this case you should check and assure that certain tour package is feasible for you or you are paying much more. For e.g. type of accommodation provided by a tour operator in a particular hotel can be different if you are booking directly for the same. Agents often upload rooms under a different name to that which the hotel has given them.
Make sure your tour is protected or not. Travel insurance is common now a days and an insured tour provides several protection to us. Insurance also gives you benefits on some unavoidable events, like your flight being cancelled, loss of baggage or any physical loss for which should be covered.
Confirm the inclusions and exclusion
Before you go away to shop around and compare prices elsewhere, check that you know exactly what’s included in your quote. Additional extras quickly add up so make sure you compare these as well as your flight times, hotel room types and meal inclusions. For luxury holidays, look at your transfers. If you’re heading somewhere transfers can set you back a substantial amount if they’re not included. If they are, check what kind of transfer you have.
Haggling is well
Haggling over the prices of different inclusion of your tour can give you a fair deal for your tour. It’s worth obvious that the first price you’re offered is automatically generated according to parameters set by the agent and this is not final and lowest rate available. If you go back to your agent and let them know you’ve found it cheaper somewhere else, they can usually provides you some additional discounts for you.
Must read all Terms and Conditions
Hidden or unclear terms and condition may create a hassle for you in between tour or after the tour. So it is important that you should read and clarify all doubts on the terms and conditions given by a tour booking operator. If you are planning your trip under group tour and you are not aware of the destination, in this case terms and conditions of accommodation, transfers, sightseeing and transportation must be clear before booking a tour. – Window To News
