How often do you see a cruise or tour advertised as ‘Fly Free’?
That’s Bulldust! . . . It should really say just say ‘Flights included’
If we are travelling long haul we would much rather stop longer than the packaged length of the holiday.
If you arrive the day before the tour starts you are probably in a trance for the first day.
If your luggage gets delayed will it ever catch up?
Going to Europe we typically want to visit friends and relatives in Britain before the tour starts.
We may also want to use our frequent flyer points to book business class travel.
We generally find that as soon as we ask for the package without the ‘Free Flights we get a significant discount.
The discount is likely to a little less than the cost of booking the flights yourself, but for us it’s still worthwhile.
Extra Travel Hack
If you are booking a “free flight’ You might find the fare class you have been booked on doesn’t include airline points!
