Top Travel Trade Tips from the Be Travel Savvy Team

The experts at Be Travel Savvy share their brilliant insider travel tips regularly on their blog, and their latest entry is a real find! They reveal a travel trade secret that could allow you to enjoy a long-duration, long-haul holiday for less than the cost of a week, just by knowing the right time to go. The example they use is 4* break to the esteemed Playa Pesquero Hotel in Cuba. This fantastic special offer is £949 for 16 nights ALL INCLUSIVE. A 7 night holiday to the same hotel departing just four days earlier costs over £1200.

The people behind Be Travel Savvy have worked in the industry and know how important it is to consumers to be able to bag a bargain when it comes to their holidays. Sharing their travel trade tips is a way of them letting people know what they need to do to get a good deal.

Be Travel Savvy isn’t just about cheap deals though, as their Hidden Gem feature lets readers in on the world’s best hotels:

“Sometimes people insist on four or five star accommodation,” says Be Travel Savvy’s editor Emily “What they don’t realise is that while four or five star hotels are usually more expensive, they’re not always the best. Flashy facilities don’t always guarantee quality and a good experience. Some of the best properties in the world are quaint guest houses or three star apartment complexes. We go by reputation and reveal the places that we think are the best to stay, regardless of star rating or cost.”

The Be Travel Savvy team also use their expertise to answer readers’ travel challenges. “Again, we use insider tips to help people find the holiday they need on a budget. For example, we might suggest someone chooses a beautiful unspoilt area of Egypt like Marsa Alam instead of The Maldives for an affordable honeymoon. They’ll still get world-class snorkelling, luxury hotels and pristine beaches but it’s a lot nearer and a fraction of the cost.”

Generally, holiday prices are based on demand. “Our team of travel trade professionals know what is expensive and why. The golden rule is to think outside of the box, to look somewhere different to where everyone else is looking. On a recent travel challenge, we helped a family who were looking to get away at October Half Term. Everyone automatically looks to Cyprus or the Canaries for the weather, so the cost of holidays to those resorts is extortionate. We recommended Turkey and southern Spain, where the weather is still good and the holidays more affordable.”

As well as featuring Travel Trade Tips, Travel Challenges, competitions and Hidden Gems, Be Travel Savvy also run a regular ‘Just Back From’ feature. “There’s no better testament to a hotel or resort than a report from someone who has just returned from a stay there. We summarise readers’ holidays so that other readers can be inspired head of their next getaway.”

Be Travel Savvy have also recently launched a new ‘Blue Mondays’ feature. “We know people get a bit down at their desks on a Monday afternoon,” says Emily, “so we have picked out our favourite lush blue views from around the world to inspire our readers.”
