Cheap holidays abroad, a step-by-step
How to organize a trip to Croatia without a tour operator
A stay in Croatia we have dreamed for a long time,but somehow put off a visit to this country.But this year we decided to implement our long-standing desire, and at the same time change the format of rest.
Previously, we always bought a ticket to the tour operator and were very pleased that the holiday is fully organized.We just had to choose a hotel.This time we have organized our own trip.And do not make a mistake.The goal was - a quality vacation for less money.And of course we were moved by a sense of adventure.
How cheap to fly abroad
One of the main items of expenditure is flight.Perm did not so easy to find a direct flight, and even for moderate money ...
experienced in these matters tourists suggested that tickets must be purchased in advance.We are puzzled search for tickets in December (looking for tickets to the end of August).As a result, an option has been found - 31tys.rub.back and forth for three people !!!This is given the fact that we have done a transplant.
How to rest abroad cheaply? - Plan your vacation for earlier and book tickets accordingly.Tickets are one of the most expensive components of a foreign holiday, this expenditure you can save considerably if you know the secrets booking cheap flights.
most important condition to an inexpensive vacation abroad, proved to be the best you
Every tourist has his main wish is to rest.Someone dreams of staying in luxurious hotels.Some of the successful shopping abroad or the presence of youth clubs in the vicinity.For, someone important is a good entertainment program for themselves and their children.There are also tourists, for whom the most important condition of rest is "all inclusive".
When you refer to the tour operators, then voice their main criteria for the selection of tour.The same must be done when you are going to travel independently.To present a list of criteria in this case need to be yourself.This is a very important step in the organization of any holiday.And even more so if you decide to have a rest abroad inexpensively.
If you do not define the main criterion for a good rest in your mind, you start looking at the wrong and the consequence can greatly disappointed in its independent budget travel.
For us the most important and the main criterion for summer holidays is a nice beach and clean sea.We always turn select the coast, and then to look at what this hotel available on it to select.Especially for Croatia, it is very critical, as most of the beaches of this country are not exactly the standard form.Lack of sand or pebbles, but only concrete slabs, from which actually invited to dive into the water.Already in Croatia, we have seen a lot of beaches and realized we made the right bet on the first position in the criteria for selecting destinations.
pay the ticket, we started to look for a suitable option to stay.Our company is comprised of five (me, my husband, 12 year old son and sister, husband and 17 year old daughter).The most important condition for us was a nice beach.I think we found the best beach in Croatia.The place where the internet is called Baska Voda.In fact, in the Croatian language, Baska Voda.What it is - beautiful water.This former fishing village that is now specialized in tourism.The place completely justifies its name.But more on that later.
To understand the logic of the formation of our low-cost self-relaxation, I will describe our priorities in strict sequence
Our priorities inexpensive vacation abroad
- without the high cost of travel;
- nice beach;
- cozy apartment, we did not expect luxury conditions, but in a tent under the sky were not ready to live;
- freedom of movement throughout the country;
- presence of new impressions.
The fact that we did not have critical (than we were willing to sacrifice for the sake of holiday abroad for us was low)
- for us was not necessarily the first line of the beach
- we are ready to beat to share one apartmenttwo-family, subject to the availability of individual rooms
- we were willing to take on the issues of cooking
- we were not interested parties, shopping, animation and even more so "all inclusive"
How to rest abroad cheaply and well? Decide on priorities - what for you is the most important criterion for a successful holiday, and with what you are willing to sacrifice for the sake of inexpensive vacation overseas ha.
How to remove a good apartment cheaply abroad
With beach undecided.Now it had to choose between apartments.
Having studied Booking chosen - «Hause Bilic».We watched all the Google map location of apartment, photos of the interior and of course the most important thing - reviews.Photos impressed us - a snow-white bathroom and a balcony with a gorgeous sofa rocking.But the most decisive in favor of the apartments began to reviews that we read.All enthusiastically describes not only the apartments but also gracious hosts.
apartment with two bedrooms, living room, fully equipped kitchen, a large balcony with a sea view and a bathroom.From August 20 to September 5, the price of apartments cost us 2080 euros.Apartment booked.Under the terms of the reservation payment on the spot.
How cheap to rest in a nice apartment abroad?- Book apartments for earlier, as a result of our timely decision we have selected the best rooms in these excellent apartments.
As inexpensive travel on holiday abroad
to travel freely around the country, we have to rent a car for the entire stay in Croatia.This transport was replaced by us, including a shuttle from the airport to the destination.Chose Chevrolet Cruze - a roomy car, just for five people.The cost of renting a car cost us 840 euros for the whole period of rest abroad.Payment on arrival.
Given the fact that the cost of apartments and rent cars need to be divided into two companies, we realized that the travel budget will be quite acceptable.
How cheap to rent a car abroad? Again - book a car in advance on the internet.In this case, you will be able to choose the company that offers the best conditions and at the same read reviews about these companies.There is another advantage.Booking for the previous car, you save on the market - it's a vehicle will be waiting for you at the airport!
What risks lie in wait for tourists wishing to relax cheaply abroad
But as they say, fly in the ointment is not done.Three weeks before departure the airline Lufthansa announced that our flight was canceled and offered us other options.Namely: to fly a day later to fly on the same day with two changes a long way to fly for two days before.
first option does not suit us, becausewe could lose the reservation and apartments and on the machine, the second option seemed too tedious and we decided - the flight two days earlier.It was the weekend so agree on the extension of leave was not necessary.Sincearrival was Dubrovnik - we decided to wait two days there and see the sights.
In this regard, we have additional costs: Apartametny - 320 euros.A taxi from the airport to your destination 40 euros.(because our car will have to wait only two days, and rebook it would be much more expensive).
