San Bruno, CA (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
Though summer is slipping away, there is still time to sneak in one last getaway. Booking a cruise is one of the best ways to take advantage of highly discounted, end-of-summer travel rates, according to Alpha Flight Guru, a travel agency specializing in cheap business flights and cheap first class flights.
“There are some great deals on cruise travel right now,” Alpha Flight Guru spokesman Tim Gibson said. “The Caribbean, Alaska and the Mediterranean are among the most popular destinations, with last minute deals as high as 70 percent off the original prices.”
Cruises offer several advantages to travelers including pre-planned itineraries, all-inclusive dining, multiple entertainment options, port excursions and the ease of traveling from one destination to the next.
But those taking cruises must usually book flights into the city where the ship docks to pick up its passengers.
“The cruisers we work with often want to fly in style on the world’s most luxurious airlines,” Gibson said.
He explained that buying luxury international flights is the best way to maximize the use of credit card reward points and frequent flier miles. Along with using less expensive contract and consolidator fares, agents at Alpha Flight Guru also specialize in helping customers redeem travel rewards for discount business class and cheap first class airfare.
