Book now..........or Book the day before travelling

I am spending 3 nights in Playa d'en Bossa mid Oct - I have provisionally booked Hotel Algarb but would prefer something a bit better. Do you think it will be possible to get a real bargain if I book very close to my date of travel ??

Thanks for your advice

Wait until about 1 week before. There will be loads of deals for that time of the year starting to surface about mid september and that is also a good time to book as you have the choice of the best places. Bossa will be v quiet nearly closed down at that time of the year.

Thanks your advice but in the meantime managed to haggle with Garbi and have got them to agree Euro 55.00 per night bed and breakfast !

I still have the option to cancel if something better comes up but I thought it was a good deal

Think you are stopping in the best hotel in PDB, therefore would only change if you find a better rate for this hotel.

As Danny says season now ended basically, should be deals a plenty.

Even out of season fifty five is a good rate at that hotel.

They seem kosher. Just be flexible and prepared for any extra baggage charges.

Best of luck.

My children use this company often, they usually do flights through low cost airlines, just check baggage allowance for your chosen airline, they vary, ie.

Ryanair 15kg or 20kg, jet2 22kg, a cost is associated with hold baggage.

Both airlines allow 10kg cabin luggage free.
