How group tour operators save you money on group travel

Billie Cohen had a great article in The New York Times on Sunday called “How to Save on Group Travel.” I won’t lie to you. I read through it eagerly to see what she had to say about how group tour operators save you money on group travel.

But lo and behold, Billie didn’t mention group tour operators at all in her article. Now, not to be critical, but unless your group only needs flights or just hotel accommodations, it’s one of the best ways to save!

Best doesn’t always mean obvious though. It’s obvious to me because I’ve been a group tour operator for 30 years.¬†Frankly, more vacations are booked without group tour operators then with them.¬†And that’s simply because people just don’t realize that at the highest level, group tours provide the economies of scale at lower prices. But that’s what you have me for.

I didn’t want readers to miss out on how group tour operators help you save money. I left a comment on Billie’s article bulleting five ways group tour operators can help you save when planning a group trip. Jump over to article now and then read what I shared in my comment.

What are some ways you’ve saved money when traveling with group? I’d love to know. Leave a comment on this post.
