How To Find A Cheap Accommodation For Your Golf Break In Albufeira
Albufeira will mesmerize you in many ways as a golfer. The courses have stunning views and will both challenge you, as well as teach you about course navigation. If you've never been to Albufeira because of the perceived costs, consider some options that may bring the price down significantly and enable you to go.
Should you use a travel agent?
There are pros and cons involved whether you use a travel agent or not. Travel agencies claim that they receive special deals with holiday resorts because other aspects of the holiday (food, travel, etc.) are included. However, see whether or not you are actually in need of these extras and if not, consider booking your holiday without the help of an agency. You may also want to examine whether or not paying the travel agency is worth the extras you are receiving anyway.
Bed and breakfasts versus resorts
The bed and breakfast spots in Albufeira are worth considering over resorts for a number of reasons. First, you don’t need to stay at a golfing resort to play golf. Many golf courses are within walking and driving distance from anywhere you stay. In addition: instead of staying at an expensive resort, check out some of the more modest places that allow self catering.
Planning your golfing ahead of time
A good way to save on your holiday costs is to book your play times when you book your holiday. You can receive some nice packages if you do all of this online or over the phone a good few weeks before arriving. Last minute bookings will not only stress you out, but probably cost you more anyway. Book in advance and save yourself some spending money.
Why you shouldn’t go alone to Albufeira
Albufeira wasn’t meant for solo golf getaways. Be sure to go with your golfing friends or members of your golf club. Have a chat to a few guys you think will be interested and plan a group holiday. Sharing the costs will lower the prices significantly and also give you more value for your money.
- Booking the courses will cost the same, but you will be able to play longer.
- Accommodation costs can be shared.
- Travel costs can also be shared.
Adding up all these savings will ensure a much cheaper holiday than what you initially anticipated.
