1 Advance booking: Plan your vacation and buy tickets in advance to avoid last minute confusion and higher charges.
2 Lodging: For a unique weekend getaway experience, look out for homestay options as they are cost effective. For a long stay, check for rental apartments instead of hotels.
3 Do some research: Compare the deal of your lodging from other travel websites. Look for consumer reviews of the hotel you plan to stay in for insights of their experiences.
4 Get value for money: Besides complimentary breakfast, eat other meals at local restaurants for an economical and authentic experience. Also, take full advantage of the sight seeing included in your package.
5 Read the fine print: Check the refund and cancellation policies, carefully. Especially, the fine print such as conditions applied on the package, to avoid misguidance and a bad experience.
