Canny travellers know that Friday is the most expensive day of the week to buy an airline ticket, with flights on average costing 30 per cent more than on a Sunday.
Which is why increasing numbers of travellers are starting their breaks on a Sunday rather than a Friday.
I am going to share some tips to find the best room rates so you can really enjoy a special luxury break.
Everyone wants to save money on accommodation considering that hotel costs can easily be the largest part of the holiday budget.
Hotel prices are dynamic and change daily just like flight prices. But one thing is certain. Demand affects supply and travelling out of high season, booking early and, if possible, avoiding weekends, you will always find a better deal.
So whether you want to spend a few nights in five star luxury or fancy a cosy boutique hotel, the trick is to select a couple of hotels on the Mallorcantonic hotels pages and check out their rates. Make sure to use the promo code Tonic to secure further discounts, upgrades and cava (or complete the short booking form for those hotels without a promo code facility ).
Here just a few examples of the savings that can be made in the low season months :
Five Star Santos Nixe Palace is offering a two night weekend stay in November in a City View Room for €298 as opposed to €268 if you arrive on Sunday for a 2 night stay.
Or how about Hotel Gloria Sant Jaume, a 14 room exclusive hideaway in the old town of Palma. A 2 night weekend stay is €590 whereas arriving on a Sunday means you will only pay €474 for a 2 night stay.
At Font Sant Hotel and Spa, just minutes from the white sandy beach of Es Trenc, a 2 night stay in March arriving Friday is €450 but you only pay €342 if you arrive on a Sunday.
So by booking smart, low season, mid week and taking advantage of the Tonic bonus, you really can enjoy luxury for less on the magical island of Mallorca.
