I am going to Bulgaria for Holidays and I am so happy with the deal I got. We will be visiting some family members and it will be the first trip to Bulgaria for my husband. I am very excited because Bulgaria is a beautiful country. I managed to book and amazing price from all airports very convenient for our travels.The plan is to arrive in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria by using our Avios points. Next week there is a £1 sale for flight redemptions in Europe with Avios which will bring this leg down to £2 from £35. As we plan to tour the country there is no point returning to the capital and spending more money and time (5hours) for a flight back home. Thanks to all the tour operators who have summer flights dead cheap during the period I wanted. May is not busy as it is only the beginning of the summer, so flights are cheaper and the weather is much better.
We will be flying out from Bourgas, a popular city and a seaside resort. The cost of our flights for BOTH of us comes to the amazing £34 return and £14 cashback so net price £20. J Now this is what I call an amazing price. As we travel light we usually do not need a suitcase, still not sure if I will take one on this trip but even if I do it will be £20 for the service. I can survive with this cost, considering that flights to Sofia sometimes can reach up to £250 one way. I will be saving about £250 on flights rather than going the conventional way and would have less flexibility over airports and times.
If you have some flexibility and you are not set on dates, you and your family can enjoy great savings and experiences. It takes some time to search for these deals but it is worth it. If you need help always happy to give you tips and hints, just drop me an email.
Some things to consider before you travel:
Before I buy anything online I will always go and check the cashback sites to see if there are any offers available. The most popular cashback sites are Quidco and Topcashback UK and you can save quite a lot of money on pretty much anything. For my American friends there are Ebates, Mr Rebates, Topcashback US.
I booked my outbound flight with BA and inbound with Flythomascook.com.
Bulgaria is a great destination for Muslims. It is predominantly a Christian country but with many Turkish Muslims living there it is very diverse. It is also pretty easy to find Halal food, mosques to pray and places to visit. The scenery of this country is stunning; they have great ski resorts, years of history and beautiful buildings. As part of the European Union it is easy to get in and out of the country and I would definitely recommend it. 🙂
