5 Things You Should Know Before Clicking The Buy Button
TORONTO, Jan. 22 /CNW/ - One of the most widely held beliefs about travel is that it is cheaper on the web. But much has changed since the mega-portals first launched.
In this week's issue, www.TakeOffeh.com walks you through some key points to consider when shopping for travel online:
- Early on, Internet vacation prices varied greatly. Five years ago,
Canadian tour operators levelled the playing field by prohibiting the
practice of advertising their products at discounted rates. Now you
won't find large price discrepancies for the same package on
- Most traditional travel retailers now have a booking system on their
website to give the consumer the option of shopping 24/7. In fact, it
is likely the exact same system the large portals have, since one
company has a virtual monopoly on booking engines in Canada.
- It is important to read and understand the small print on the website
whether you're booking a hotel, car or all inclusive vacation. You
need to find out what the cancellation and change policies are.
Better yet, make sure you get advice on insurance. It is likely the
best travel purchase you will ever make.
Booking smart doesn't always mean finding the lowest possible price, not when precious vacation time is at stake. TakeOffeh.com provides travel advice and tips from a uniquely Canadian perspective.
