Now i know you people are not stupid, anyone can go and book a holiday, i thought i would give people a guide on how to do it without just walking into a travel agent and handing over your hard earned cash!! If you shop around you can save hundreds. Now it can be a scary thing but booking flights and accommodation separately is the way to do it. Doing it this way means you don’t have a coach waiting for you and you don’t have a rep but i think they are things i can live without. The airport in Ibiza is not far from the main resorts so jumping in a taxi wont break the bank.
I looked up a two week holiday in San Antonio on the first choice website. I picked a hotel and flights for this example that you can find separate on this site. The hotel is the Poniente in San Antonio near Kanya. For the example i have priced it for 4 people to fly from Luton at the beginning of June.
First Choice Price = Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£1246.64 (Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£311 each) Link
My Price = Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£685.72 (Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£171.43 each)
thats a saving of Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£560.92 between 4 people or Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£140.23 each!
Here is how its done. Firstly i used a website called Alpharooms to book the accommodation (info on the Ibiza Accommodation page.) This cost Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£434.00 for 4 people sharing a 2 bedroom apartment. The website is really good and one i use. All you need to check in to your hotel is the confirmation email.
Secondly i found flights from Luton on lastminute.com (info on my Ibiza Flights page) These flights were priced at Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£62.93 each . That gives a total of Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£251.72 for 4 people. Add the flights and accommodation prices together and you have a total of Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£685.72.
Its really that simple!
