Golf Trips To Portugal Including Flights: Finding The Best Deals
With Portugal becoming more and more of an attraction for golfers from Europe in particular, but also the United States, finding the best deals can swing a few extra days golfing.
How exactly does one go about this? In this article, we will give you some tips in finding the best deals for golf trips to beautiful Portugal.
Use your local travel agent
Although not always the best bet, using your travel agent to book a golf tour can be particularly useful, especially if you do not have access to the internet yourself. Many do book golf tours for clients, but even if they have little experience, they will be able to find suitable packages through their numerous contacts, or even online themselves. Of course, they will add a little extra to the bill as part of their commission.
Consider a golf tour operator
Golf tour operators are specialized travel agents, with a particular focus on golf. They will be able to point out all the best deals in and around Portugal. Once you have decided on your particular favorite, they will book the flights, accommodation, and golfing packages. Again, expect to pay a little extra as part of the golf tour operator’s commission.
Do you own online research and bookings
As most of us have access to the internet, doing your own research for both golfing trips in Portugal, including accommodation and flights is fairly simple. Set aside an afternoon and spend your time finding at least 20 different deals that you would consider to be in your price range. Once you have these, begin more thorough research into each of them looking at the following:
- Flight prices
Number of courses surrounding where you will stay
In this way, you will be able to find the best deal suited specifically to your budget.
Package deal or customized tour
Lastly, no matter if you use a travel agent, golf tour operator or research and book yourself, you will need to decide on a package deal or a customized golf tour. In all honesty, unless you have the time to put together all the arrangements for a customized tour, a package deal is simply far easier to setup.
No matter which way you plan your Portuguese golfing holiday, a trip to this beautiful country, filled with a variety of stunning golf courses, is a must.
Book The Best Golf Resorts
Review green fees and other expenses not included in your golf holiday package. You want to make sure there are no hidden fees or surprises that could make your trip a bust.
Make plans flexible. Be open to doing other activities besides golf. Make the most of your time on the course and be considerate of other golfers.
Have a list of must-pack items created before you pack. You can get this information from other golfers you know that have taken a similar holiday. You can also review this information through trusted golf publications offering travel tips. You will also want to learn about how to take items you will use on the course such as golf clubs. You could have them sent ahead to your destination before your arrival.
