Special offers can appear because of the ticket sale during the season closing, a new direction opening or just for attracting many clients.
If you are looking for the tickets incognito, aggregating agents could not evaluate your status depending on your previous ticket orders and will not raise the price.
Reserving a hotel room
Firstly, let’s look into the questions of comfort, and then we’ll speak about the room price. The following common tricks can lead to comfort loosing, so study some pieces of advice in order not to get in unpleasant situations.
Look not at the room photos, but on its area. Photos can be taken from any perspective, so even a small room will look like a mansion.
Get to know the information about the room fund. If you do not want to find yourself in the overcrowded hotel which does not give a possibility to relax neither during a day nor at night, choose the hotels with 200-300 rooms, in extremes, with no more than 500 rooms.

If you cannot sleep when there is much noise around, you have to find out beforehand the noise level. For this reason use the Google Maps, for instance, and look whether there is a road, lively streets and places of interests (where a great amount of tourists will gather, of course) near your hotel.
Becoming familiar with feedbacks
Pay your attention to many repeating feedback. For example, if you notice several similar texts about cramped rooms, most probably it is true.
Getting into consideration sea view
In case a sea view is very important for you, look at the hotel location on the map or call up the hotel for asking.
Remember: you can notice the words “beach” and “sea view” even in the hotels which are located at the distance of one block from the sea and its beaches.
