Vilamoura Golf Break Deals: How To Find A Great Option

Vilamoura is known to be an ideal golf destination throughout the year, but it seems the maximum inflow of tourists occurs during the summer. The golf season in Vilamoura isn’t too far now, in just a few months you’ll have fresh live grass, gentle breeze, and warm sunrays shining upon you. Now is the right time to start planning for your golf break. If you’re clueless how to find the best deals, here are a few valuable tips from the travel experts.

Book early, plan earlier

Once you’ve decided to embark on a golf journey, the obvious thing to do is plan for the tour. Start planning well in advance, ideally 3 months before the intended journey. This time period is enough to consult your family or friends, list the best hotels and golf courses, prepare the itinerary, make a ‘To Do’ list, and make advance flight, hotel, and tee time bookings.

The best time to book a resort or hotel is 3 weeks in advance (i.e.) 21 days; a few of the hotels and resorts in Vilamoura give up to 15 to 20 percent discount for booking early. Golf tourists booking 14 days early get a 10 percent discount. Some accommodation options even waive off penalty for cancellations.

Best flight deals

The month and day you travel matter too. Most of the flights to Vilamoura and hotels are busy and booked during peak golf season. But, even on those busy months, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays are ideal days to avail cheaper deals. Airports are less congested during these three days of the week. Also, the flights that take off before 8 in the morning or after 8 in the evening are cheaper to fly.

Two secret tips

The duration of the golf trip is generally pre-fixed, two-night holiday or a two-week vacation, the pre-fixed tour allows golf enthusiasts to book a round-trip air ticket. Booking a round-trip ticket might have been a good strategy a couple of decades ago, but things have changed now. If you search, analyze, and compare the various airfare deals, it’ll become obvious that even with one-way tickets you can save big. Also, you can use two different airlines.

To get the best deals you need to be aware of them and grab them when available. When planning your golf trip, make a list of all the hotels, resorts, airlines, golf courses, and taxi services. Visit their websites and do the following: subscribe to newsletters and follow their social media accounts. When deals and discount packages are announced you’ll be the first one to know.



Golf Is All About Strategy

Considering all aspects of a golf course you’ve never played before takes a bit of time. But you will reap the rewards of that effort during play. Your final score will surprise your opponents who thought they had one up on you because of their familiarity with the course. So take the time and do your homework. Making a habit of doing so will improve your game immensely. Golf is, after all, as much about strategy as it is about skill.
