It will probably feature in another post at some stage, but I am so excited at the potential saving I just found, I have to share now!
I have been reading online that you can save a significant amount by booking flights, car rentals and accommodation on a company’s site in a different country rather than the local site they might use to get Australian business. For instance, instead of checking a flight on your own country’s Expedia site, try pricing it from their Japanese site.
We are doing Disney in Europe, and I just read article in The Telegraph UK that claimed you can save a packet by checking holiday specials via the French Disneyland site as opposed to the main one that comes up first in your Google search.
I wanted to see for myself. I got both sites up and plugged the exact same special passes) for the very same dates into each site. The savings I made on this dummy run was over $1000.
This was the deal from the main site that came up when I Googled ‘Disneyland Paris’:
And here is the same deal from the French site:
From this dummy booking, I made a saving of 717 Euro ($1033 AUD).
