Travel Expo discounts


#1

Hi There,[br][br]Just wondering whether those who have already booked their summer european tours at the expo received any good deals?[br][br]I just went to an expo at flightcentre and it works out that it will be the same price if I booked last week or if I book in a few weeks.[br][br]I’ve heard how some people got 2 free nights accomodations and how others got further discounts. But the price I have received is the same price as what’s in the top deck brochure. Some feedback would be great.[br][br]Thanks,[br]Mel

I booked 2 tours at the Discover Europe Expo in Melbourne which is run by Flight Centre. I got an extra $100 of each tour. Very happy with the savings. [br][br]Keep in mind that if you book a tour through a travel agent and pay with a credit card you will most likely be charged a credit card fee of up to 3.00% of the total cost of the tour(s). This can be costly. Pay in cash if you can. You will save even more money.

I got 7.5% off tour and food fund (wasn’t meant to get ff discount but travel agent was cool) then $200 off each tour as I booked two at the expo. All up $1286 discount.

Wow Mick, sounds like you got an amzing discount!! Did you know the travel agent or you drive a good bargain?

The only extra I got was the discount on the food fund. Which I assume I got as I told her I wasn’t sure if I was going to book thru her.

My travel agent booked for me following the Brisbane Expo. I’m heading on the Winter Getaway departing on 10 March 09, so the trip was more than 4 months away at the time of the expo. I had provided all the money (full price) to my travel agent when I consulted with him and selected the appropriate tour in early October, but he recommended he postpone booking until the expo on 1 November. In any event, I’d missed out on any early booking discount which as I understand applies if you book 6 months in advance. [br][br]I received only $50 off in total, which is a little disappointing, so I guess my advice is don’t necessarily wait for the expo as the early booking discounts may be a better saving for you… waiting for the expo is a gamble because ultimately, your tour may be the only one that isn’t discounted on the day :frowning:
