No matter where you decide to go for your next vacations, there are a few tips to keep in mind.

  1. Off-Season Great Deals

Most travelers book their vacations during or for the high season but that's not when you find the best deals. Most destinations have that sweet spot just before or just after high season when you can benefit from the same weather conditions, everything is less busy, places aren't overcrowded, there are fewer lines to the main attractions, restaurants and hotels have more availability (and a more attentive service), and prices are lower! We would say that there is no better timing than now to guarantee a visit to the best places featured on The wine show. Portugal is a small yet trendy country, you must book it asap!

  1. Less Expensive Destinations

Sometimes we overlook the value of our currency in the countries we are visiting. There are a lot of great travel destinations where a dollar can stretch the furthest allowing you to save money or even to upgrade to a better travel package. In Portugal, for example, you can find great deals. This is a country where you pay fair prices for a great service with excellent quality standards, or in other words, you’ll get great value for money.


  1. Early Booking

Booking your vacation earlier can grant you better deals and you'll have your pick to the best hotels, resorts, and dates - which can be always fully booked in high season. Book in advance and get more for less money.

  1. Trusty Online Travel Agencies

Many travelers book their vacation on sketchy websites that offer a lot of "too good to be true" cheap deals. These websites usually have very unclear information about their policies that many times we tend to overlook because of the great deal opportunity we are getting. Pay close attention, look out for hidden fees,  carefully read the fine print, read reviews, and choose trusty online booking websites, preferably a local and experienced travel agency. Why? They know the best experiences and they will also recommend the ones that best fit your profile and preferences.

We mentioned before the availability for the best places, so timing is everything when it comes to booking the perfect accommodation or that special off-track experience or wine tasting.
