how to get a deal on a trip to Mexico

By Edited Jun 19, 2016 0 0

Vacationing abroad can be very expensive. With the fall of the American dollar, you can find yourself paying more for things in other countries. Fortunately, there are a few places close to home that your dollar still has value, one of them being Mexico.

Additionally, many deals can be had on a trip to Mexico, due partly to its close proximity, as well as its fierce competition for your business. A trip to Mexico can be extremely affordable if you do the proper research before you book your vacation.

Things You Will Need

Step 1

CONSIDER AN ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE:

This style of vacationing offers a unique value in which all your expenses are paid for before you even check in. All meals, snacks, some water sports, gratuities and even alcohol are included in the price of your all inclusive package. Many hotels offer an all inclusive package as an option. Other resorts are committed solely to the all inclusive traveler. Airfare is sometimes offered as part of the package. Some airlines partner with travel agencies (such as Delta Vacations and Apple Vacations), and some charter airlines offer discounted airfare and hotel and transfer options all in one package price.

Step 2

PLAN YOUR VACATION FOR THE OFF SEASON:

Avoid the months of March and April (Spring Break season), when the hotels up their prices, as do the airliners. You will find a better value if you plan your vacation in the early part of the New Year (January and February) which is an ideal time to go down to Mexico, as it is already cold in the northern states.

November and December also carry some deals on Mexican vacations, as most kids are in school, and most individuals who travel for leisure this time of year are visiting relatives for the holidays.

Step 3

DO PLENTY OF RESEARCH TO SEE WHO IS OFFERING THE LOWEST RATES:

With the wealth of information available on the internet today, finding an attractive deal should be no problem. Consider the following of sources for your research: travel agency search engines, such as priceline.com, expedia.com, and travelocity.com; the airlines' own websites, which will offer links to their own travel agencies; the hotels' websites, which may offer incentives you would not receive by dealing with a third party agency.

Step 4

SEE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR ADDITIONAL DISCOUNTS:

Agency and hotel websites may offer savings if you are a member of AAA (such as with the Holiday Inn chains), any branch of government (including military), as well as discounts for senior citizens.
