Tips to Save more money
Regardless of which Sandals Resort you decided to go to, the price is going to vary drastically depending on several factors. Here are some tips to get your Sandals resort accommodations as cheap as possible.
Travel during off-peak times
If you travel during the busiest seasons, you can pay much more for your trip. The busiest months are from December until mid-April, so avoid this time to keep things affordable, especially during the holidays.
Plan to stay at a recently opened resort
When a new Sandals resort opens, there are usually great deals at the beginning. Check the Sandals website to see if what Sandals resorts will be opening soon.
Check for deals on Sandal’s page
Sandals resorts regularly have specials and it is easy to find them. Check their current promotions to see what is available.
Speak to a travel agent
Travel agents that focus on all-inclusive vacations know where the deals are. They can help you save money and know when to book.
Use Google Flights to find deals on flights
A large cost to your vacation comes from the flights. You can use Google Flights to see where the cheapest flights go to in the Caribbean.
Book in advanced
Book your trip as soon as possible. That ensures prices will not go up. Sandals allow you to cancel your reservation up to 31 days before your trip so if a better price comes up later you can always rebook at that rate.
