Zelf Makkelijk Je Habbekratsreizen Regelen

Zelf Makkelijk Je Habbekratsreizen Regelen

Zelf makkelijk je habbekratsreizen regelen“Jij weet het, omdat je reisjournalist bent, maar hoe moeten anderen erachter komen waar ze eenvoudig en goedkoop reizen kunnen boeken?” In de aanloop naar de vakantie verbazen vrienden en kennissen zich keer op keer over mijn habbekratsreizen. Die ik vaak ook nog op de valreep organiseer.

Toch kan heus iedereen simpel en voordelig zijn reizen regelen. Neem als voorbeeld de stappen die ik ondernam voor de boeking van mijn accommodatie in Bulgarije. Ik vertrek overmorgen naar dit land, dus in het hoogseizoen, maar ging pas eergisteren op zoek naar goedkope verblijfplekken. Op zich is laat reserveren niet echt aan te raden, maar Bulgarije is (buiten de stranden van de Zwarte Zee) nauwelijks toeristisch dus was er flink speling.

Low cost airlines

De vlucht naar de Bulgaarse hoofdstad Sofia was al wel maanden terug geregeld, via Wizz Air, de prijsvechter voor Oost-Europa. Vliegtuigtickets kun je beter meteen regelen zodra je weet dat je op reis gaat. Alleen zo heb je de beste prijsgarantie. Verder hoed ik me voor prijzige instinkers. Ruimbagage heb ik bij boeking meteen beperkt tot één koffer, dat scheelt zeulen en kosten.

Maar wat was verder eigenlijk de bedoeling? Voor Bulgarije stond een rondreis met puberzoon van twee weken gepland. We reizen meestal simpel en verblijven in tweepersoonskamers in hostels of hotels. Al dan niet met toilet en douche en/of ontbijt erbij. Ontbijt laat ik doorgaans vallen als dat kan. Het verschil in prijs met  ‘de straat’  is vaak te groot en buiten eten is meestal leuker en zeker afwisselender.

Ter plekke kun je de prijs-kwaliteitverhouding van het gebodene ook veel beter beoordelen en je bovendien nog rustig bedenken. In hostels en appartementen is een ontbijt natuurlijk makkelijk zelf te bereiden. Een kleine moeite, want wat heeft een mens doorgaans nodig? Geen onbeperkt-eten-buffet, wat mij betreft.

Reisplanning

Op een vel digitaal papier maak ik voor zo’n familietrip wat kolommetjes met data waarop precies ingevuld kan worden waar we wanneer aankomen en vertrekken. Aan de hand van de beschrijving van een bestemming en de eigen wensen wordt de duur van verblijf per plaats bepaald. Daarna is het zoeken naar kamers en alles rustig één voor één invullen.

De veertien overnachtingen die ik in Bulgarije moest regelen, haalde ik weg bij verschillende sites die ik onderling constant in prijs vergeleek: www.hostelbookers.com (mijn favoriet), www.hostelworld.com en www.hostelsclub.com.

Korting bij directe boeking

Daarbij checkte ik steeds of geschikte hotels wellicht een eigen site hadden. Was dit het geval dan boekte ik meteen bij de hotels zelf als die voor zo’n directe boeking korting gaven. Omdat we ook kleinere plaatsen willen aandoen, waarvoor de grote verzamelsites geen accommodatie boden, trok ik de Lonely Planet Bulgarije wel na voor aanvullende accommodatie .

Zelf vond ik ook www.limba.com waarover ik direct enthousiast was. Limba is een grote site die zich met name richt op Oost-Europa en alle soorten slaapplekken aanbiedt, van eenvoudige hotels tot kamers bij particulieren.

Bij alle accommodatie moest wel even gecheckt worden wat de afstand tot centra, stations en bezienswaardigheden is om niet straks voor onverwachte kosten voor vervoer te staan. Plus nog een dosis ergernis.

Vakantiegeld verdienen

Hoe dan ook was ik na een paar uurtjes vergelijken en puzzelen voor veertien nachten 182,84 euro per persoon kwijt, oftewel 13,06 per nacht. Op de camping in Frankrijk ben je duurder uit. Met wat goede sites  is het dus makkelijk vakantiegeld verdienen.

Voordelig vervoer is in Bulgarije eenvoudig ter plaatse te regelen. Treinen en bussen komen op alle plekken uit mijn reisschema en maken dat ik zonder eigen inspanning kan reizen. Dat wordt met volle teugen van het landschap genieten of tussendoor een boek lezen.

Hetzelfde stramien volg ik altijd en overal als ik met mijn zoon reis en dus minder op de bonnefooi en voor wat meer zekerheid ga.  Goedkoop reizen is gegarandeerd en je hebt nooit meer een aanbieding uit het ondoorzichtige koopjescircus van de reisbranche nodig. Vrijheid is alles. 😉

Mooi artikel, goede tips. Ik kijk ook weleens op Booking.com, die beweert de állerlaagste prijzen te bieden. Als je daarna het mailadres van het hotel opzoekt en zegt welke prijs Booking.com biedt, met de vraag of zij daar korting op kunnen geven, dan lukt dat vaak wel. Hotels betalen iets van 35% commissie aan Booking.com.Limba.com kende ik nog niet. Bedankt voor de tip!

Dank je André! Eerlijk gezegd boek ik nooit via Booking.com. Die kan simpelweg niet de allerlaagste prijzen hebben, precies om de redenen die je noemt. En ik heb geen tijd en zin om te speuren naar de aanbiedingen die er ook best tussen zullen zitten. Hotels geven op hun eigen websites overigens vaak aan dat ze korting bieden als je direct bij hen boekt, maar doen ze dat niet, of hebben ze geen website, dan is ze zelf benaderen ook een altijd een goed idee.

Hi Kristy, yes if you use a small amount ie less than 1/2 a teaspoon which will not give you a strong colour. As soon as you use a large amount of any liquid they will turn out lumpy and strange.

How does combat using Phantom Zone projectors differ from, say, paintball? If we agree to settle a dispute by playing a game of paintball, does that count as an affray? What if it’s a game of chess?

From first-hand experimentation, I found radio triggers have a range of around 50cm to 1m underwater.I use standard China-quality radio triggers from ebay to get the initial signal out of the camera to just one of the flashes underwater, and with the other flashes set for optical slaving, that is enough to control 3 or 4 lights underwater. Of course, it's not an elegant or fool-proof solution, but it works on a shoestring budget.In another low-budget-high-risk move, I also use locking "air-proof" tupperware containers to contain the flashes.

Hello and welcome to my blog . I’m Jean Hartman. I have always dreamed of being a novelist but never dreamed I’d make a career of it. In college, though, I helped a fellow student who needed help. She could not stop complimenting me . Word got around and someone asked me for writing help just a week later. This time they would compensate me for my work. During the summer, I started doing academic writing for students at the local college. It helped me have fun that summer and even funded some of my college tuition. Today, I still offer my research paper writing to students. Writing Specialist – Jean – http://www.byrumsocialstudies.net/" / rel="nofollow">Byrumsocialstudies Corps
