Are You one of them?

Are You one of them that believe that you get the best price because hotel and flight booking sites are giving you “Best Price Guarantee”?
You
You are not alone, but let us give you some inside information.

More or less all travel sites are giving a “Best Price Guarantee” however they have different prices!

How come:

Nearly all of them only promise that if you find (after you have made your booking) a lower price, then they will match it and in best case give you some kind of reward because you found a lower price. But honestly, how often are you searching the internet for a better price after you have made your booking?

Ahaa, we thought so.

Moreover, all the sites don’t have all the hotels, so perhaps you could find an equal or more suitable hotel to a better price on another site. But having to seek through hundred websites looking at a thousand ‘deals’ can be overwhelming and complicated.

That’s why you should use ExcelBooking.com.

This is Greece

Greece is widely known for its exotic islands (more than 1,400) and extraordinary beaches. The most visited and famous Greek islands are Crete, Rhodes, Santorini, Mykonos, Zakynthos and Corfu, just to mention some of them. Only 227 of the islands are inhabited, most of them offer photogenic and picturesque villages, yacht ports, bays, sandy beaches, swimming and diving, rocky coastlines and a vibrant and relaxed nightlife.

However, the country has much more to offer to its visitors, including ancient ruins, temples. One of the most famous landmarks that you can see is The Acropolis in Athens. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates from the Late Bronze Age. The site includes numerous classical buildings like the Athena Nike Temple, the Erectheion and the Parthenon. The Acropolis stands on top of Athens and it’s an icon for both the modern and ancient civilization. This magnificent place is also a symbol for inspiration, education and democracy.

Greece has influenced many other Western nations as the country is the “birthplace” of the Olympics, democracies, Socratic method, Platonic ideals and the alphabet. Until date, Greece remained an important cultural centre of the Mediterranean Basin and the entire Europe.

Recently Greece has faced financial problems but this is only influencing tourists in a positive way, as prices are going down and everything gets cheaper, compared to previous years. Just take a look at all the hotels that ExcelBooking.com offers in Greece

Ibiza – Where the Day Begins at Sunset

Ibiza or Eivissa is one of the Balearic Islands in Spain. Together with Formentera, they are known as the “Islas Pitiusas”, from the Greek word “pitys” meaning pine tree.  Both islands have abundant pine trees covering vast landscapes. The cities which comprise Ibiza are San Antonio, Ibiza Town and Santa Eulària des Riu. The landscape is rocky and harsh alongside the hardy pines. The most common crops are almonds, olives and figs.  Surprisingly, about half the island, particularly in the unspoiled northeast, remains covered by thick forests. Driving around the back roads would give you a totally different experience than what Ibiza’s image is to the world.

Interesting places to see in Ibiza and its surroundings are Es Vedra, the mystical island rock on the west coast, the Passeig de ses Fonts in San Antonio, the old part of Ibiza Town and a hidden cove called Atlantis, that is, if you can find a local who could direct you to the secret place. Visit the neighboring Formentera by boat and explore the beautiful beaches along the coast. Ibiza’s beaches and laid-back attitude initially attracted young travellers in the flower-power heydays of the 60’s when European hippies headed to Ibiza to tune in, turn on and drop out. Tourism flourished as the hip and fashionable people slowly recognized Ibiza’s potentials to become a holiday hotspot. Today, Ibiza receives millions of tourists, annually, and is one of Spain’s most trendy and popular tourist destinations.

There are a variety of accommodations from budget to premium hotels in Ibiza. If you want a luxurious comfortable hotel room in Ibiza, try the Ibiza Gran Hotel in Ibiza town. If you are on a budget then settle in one of the hotels situated in Es Canar, Intertur Hotel Miami Ibiza is a nice 3 star hotel.
