How To Get The Best Holiday Deals For The Adriatic
Although many travellers believe that you have to have deep pockets to go on a holiday, we don’t believe this always needs to be the case. Besides the many existing savings options, there are other methods that can be used to save big long term. Read our recommendations here below and start saving more to fully enjoy your holiday without ending up stressed out the whole year .
Subscribe to newsletters – get % directly to your inbox!
Many people don’t want more e-mails in their inbox. But, when you receive promo codes and special discounts, then you really see that these so-called “spams” can help you save a lot!
Signing up to hotel newsletters means getting special offers and discounts directly to your inbox. For example, Valamar is sending special limited offers, vouchers, discounts or exclusive access to secret sales in its newsletters. For Black Friday they offered early access, a few days before everyone else, which meant that subscribers could get up to 40% off on the best accommodation. So, we really recommend you to sign up for the newsletter and enjoy many benefits.
Become a loyalty member – it pays off!
If you want more than just a “basic” holiday, the best thing you can do is to sign up for companies’ loyalty memberships. By signing up you get a lot of advantages such as discounts, free overnight stays or stays and many more. For example, becoming a member of the Valamar loyalty programme, you are guaranteed the lowest price –- up to 10% off when booking directly on Valamar.com.
You get welcome points, and for each stay you collect more and more points. You get 10 points for every euro, so you can easily come up to 15,000 points which you can exchange for 8 overnight stays! You also get discounts at restaurants, wellness and sports centres, birthday vouchers from €50, welcome gifts, and many other advantages such as priority check-in, room upgrades and late check-out.
Becoming a part of the Plus Club family will get you a lot of benefits, because for Valamar, family always comes first.
Check out the discount seasons
If you’ve already done a bit of research, then you know that there are always certain periods in the year when there are some special offers.
As everywhere in the world, Black Friday and Blue Monday are the craziest shopping days with the biggest online purchases recorded. It’s hard not to find good deals in that period, so we really recommend that you mark these days in your calendar (Black Friday is always the last Friday in November, and Blue Monday is usually the third Monday in January).
Besides these dates, hotel companies always have big Early Booking or Last-minute offers. The Early Booking offers are active mostly from October until January and Last-minute offers usually go live just before the peak summer season (June or July).
For us, Early Booking offers are always the best periods to book and to put your mind at ease. Most companies offer great deals with many benefits. For example, Valamar offers up to 30% off on mostly all hotels, resorts and camping resort on the Adriatic coast, with benefits such as no prepayment, free cancellation, kids stay for free and V-care guarantee healthcare package included in the price. Check it out here while it’s still available.
Plan your travel dates in advance for a stress-free holiday
Should I book early or wait until the last minute for a good deal? This is the question that most of us stress over. As in the Early Booking mood explained before, early thinking and planning your holiday can bring personal WIN-WIN situations -> Save Time and Money, and Stress Less.
If you plan your trip early, you can get the room with the best view, you can choose the first row to the sea or maybe even the pitch number or camping home in the camping resort that you wanted.
With many flexible booking conditions that Valamar gives, you don’t need to think about the risks relating to cancellation policies or advanced payments.
Book flight and accommodation packages
When booking this kind of all-in-one packages, you save time, and you don’t need to worry about the hassle and paperwork. Valamar also has great accommodation and flight packages, offering you a wide selection of flights from European countries to the most attractive destinations on the Adriatic, thanks to which you can save more than €100 per person. With one click you get a ticket for direct flights, accommodation, airport transfer, hand luggage and big luggage (23 kg) included and all that with money-back guarantee if something happens 14 days before departure, without hidden or additional costs.
For now, the flight options available are Pula – Zürich or München – Rijeka (Krk), and in 2023 there will be more connections from what we’ve heard. Take a look, save money and reach the Adriatic coast quicker. Why drive when you can fly there?
Plan & book your activities in advance
Most people think that planning a holiday is just choosing a holiday destination and booking your accommodation. But don’t be one of those people who come at the destination and get lost among a variety of agency offers at the city centre or by the beach. These are always the most expensive ones, which is why we recommend you to look online, at least a few days before. On this website you can explore and book some cool excursions, activities, guided tours, events and so much more.
If you really don’t have time to do it, then try to find a reliable agency. For example, in its destinations, hotels and resorts Valamar offers certified Experience Concierge which can help you book tour guides, tastings and excursions with many discounts.
In short, planning a holiday is always cheerful & booking your accommodation and activities doesn’t need to be expensive and stressful. Spend your money wisely, opt for discount periods and enjoy your holiday to the max.
