If you have decided to take in the stunning Greek island of Crete for your holiday this summer, then you can benefit from this guide to the best prices during the summer months. Despite the fact that it is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe, there are still some great deals to be had by shopping around. To save you the hassle, we have compiled this guide to the best prices currently available on the net.
While many people still stick to package holidays, the fact is that the more shrewd among us have long since known that it is far cheaper to put your holiday package together yourself by booking the individual parts from separate retailers either online or in the high street. This way you are never left at the mercy of inflated travel agent prices, and you'll have the freedom to build the perfect holiday for you.
Unfortunately, booking your holidays in this way does come with something of an elevated risk factor. If you do run into issues you won't simply be able to contact the travel agent or holiday rep on site. Instead you'll need to individually contact the companies you booked with, which can prove a time consuming practice, so make sure you keep all the essential phone numbers close to hand on the off chance that you run into an emergency while abroad.
