Over the years, I have learned several lessons about what is the right thing to say when wanting to get things cheap and sometimes it works. However, most times when I ask for something cheap I get the echo of ‘this is the cheapest we have, you can’t pass up a offer like this’. Literally that is what I guess.
For example when going to a hotel for the night, never, I have never ask for the best rate room for the night because you will often get the average room rate for the cheapest hotel room. Instead you should ask directly, ‘What is your cheapest room for the night?’ This is more direct and most often they will give you a good rate if they have space. This rule applies to not only hotel rooms but also other travel expensive, like cruise lines.
Most often cruise lines will give a high rate if you only get what they offer. If you ask for the best rate, they will give you the best rate. However, if you ask you what deals you can get for getting a cheap room you will most like get a cheap room. Now, these tips really works for last minute travels.
Now, we also have a friend, Travel agencies. I will warn you that you must make yourself seem like an informed shopper. When trying to get last minute cruises, you must push hard to get the cheapest price. Travel agencies, have a certain amount of rooms they must sell for the cruise line and when the cruise date fast approaches, the cruise lines wants to sell those empty tickets.
SO IF YOU WANT A CHEAP TICKET FROM ANY PORT, YOU MUST PUSH HARD FOR A GOOD DEAL because these agencies rather sell the ticket at a higher cost unless you push hard for a cheap deal.
NOW, If you don’t want to do all this work, I found a website that does this work for you and it is Cheap Cruises Deals. They have deals from all over United States Ports. Recently I was looking up Cheap Cruises from Galveston, Texas and I thought I had found a good deal, until I saw that they posted a deal Priceline had on their site. It saved me 10% on my ticket, plus they give extras.
