Tips for booking the ultimate windsurf holiday

The ultimate windsurfing holiday combines luxury with affordability. But how do you go about finding the perfect deal?

Here are a few tips from travel experts to get you started:
  1. Book 9-7 months in advance if you can. Most airlines release their schedule 9 months out. Book before and you won’t have all the options, book too late the fares will go up.
  2. Be flexible with flight times and duration – unsociable flight times and longer connections mean cheaper flights. Give us the maximum date range and we’ll do the work.
  3. Avoid school holidays – this might seem like the obvious thing to do, but many clients still don’t appreciate the impact this has.
  4. Family Christmas vs New Year – New Year’s Eve is the single most expensive day of the year for hotels. Get a good price by travelling on Christmas Day. If you can squeeze 1-2 days either side of the rush it can have a huge impact.
  5. Travelling with children? A family of 4 is no problem, a family of 5 is very hard to accommodation in one room. Make the most of travelling with your children when they are under 2 and still free!
  6. Look for seasonal low prices – the last 2 weeks of January and June, and the first 2 weeks of December offer good deals. September can also be a good month for last-minute offers.
  7. Talk to an expert! Tour operators often know the best deals available at the time and will save you precious time in finding the best deal for your budget, time of year and desired destination.
