Nile Cruise Deals
If you are looking for Nile cruise deals what is the best way to go about finding them?
Is it simply a matter of logging on to Google and using the search terms “Nile cruise deals” or “last-minute Nile cruise” or are there more, relevant phrases that might lead to better results?
And what exactly is a “last-minute Nile cruise“?
Is it a Nile cruise that leaves within the next few days, within the week, the month? Or is it a stock phrase that the Nile cruise specialist operators use to describe their departures right across the board? Remember some operators will use the term to attract buyers to their pages that in fact will include departure dates going up to a year ahead.
So how can you determine that you are actually receiving any sort of benefit from booking a Nile cruise at the very last minute?
Well, I would suggest that to check that the prices that you are looking at are lower than the prices they were at least a week ago, or better still, a month ago. That way you can be sure that it is a deal that you are looking at and not just a description used by the operator to sell that actual departure date.
As a Nile cruise specialist, I can tell you that actual Nile cruise deals are rarer than you think. Because the flight element of the Nile cruise package is usually the same price, (or even more) as the flight departure gets nearer, it’s the actual operator’s portion of the cost that will be hit most by any reduction. True Nile cruise deals are usually last-minute cancellations that the operator has received the full payment for. Terms and conditions usually state up to 100% cancellation charges for last-minute cancellations. So, having already covered all their costs the operator can afford to reduce the costs to make the sale more attractive.
So, in conclusion, the best way is to keep checking the website prices of a Nile cruise operator/specialist such as ourselves and see if there has been an actual and worthwhile price reduction.
