Travel discounts for group bookings

If you are thinking of travelling in a group to a destination then you may want to do some research into discounts you may be eligible for.

There are many benefits to travelling in groups to a holiday destination such as company, safety and being able to save money.  Safety is the most important aspect of travelling with friends or family – as they say, safety in numbers. Going it alone cannot only be scary at times but can make you more vulnerable and likely to be a target of crime.

Many people forget to ask about group travel discounts and are unaware that most companies will offer these even if it is not clearly advertised. For example if you are looking to take a train journey to somewhere for more than 8 – 10 people then it is always worth contacting the train line company and asking if they can offer you a better price. This is also the case for accommodation where block bookings of parties of 10 or more can often save a few pennies. If you can also arrange for people to share rooms, this can cut the cost again. With group discounts you may find that if one or more of your party have to cancel then you may forfeit your discount and have to pay the full price.  Always be sure to check the terms and conditions of any discount offered.
