Whether you’re dreaming of an island holiday, a safari adventure or a Mediterranean cruise, your final holiday decisions will inevitably depend on affordability. Flight distance, accommodation, number of travellers, currency and exchange rates – and more – all play a role in determining what your holiday will cost. This is why your Pentravel agent will ask you what your budget is, and provide you with the best options to suit your bottom line.
Airline ticket pricing can be a head-scratcher. Hands up if you’ve ever seen an excellent airfare rate advertised, but as soon as you enquired about it, the price had gone up by hundreds – if not thousands – of rands. Frustrating much?
All travel is seasonal, and every destination around the world is at its best during a particular time of year. However, each season has its advantages and disadvantages, and whichever you choose may have a significant impact on your trip – not just concerning weather, but how it affects your bottom line too.
When you’ve spent so much money on your dream holiday already, travel insurance can seem like an extra and unnecessary expense. The reality is, anything can happen to you while you’re away, such as falling ill, losing your luggage or even being the victim of a crime. Dealing with the situation can be expensive and could ruin your trip altogether. Travel insurance will soften the financial blow should something go wrong.
