travel

Since I was a child, I had heard the stories of Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Mallegan and Vasco-da-Gama travelling around the globe trying to discover newer places. As a tiny tot, I used to imagine myself to be one of these seafarers. But as I grew up, the realization dawned on me that my dream could not morph into reality. But I was always keen on travelling to places I had never been before. Almost every day I used to see the advertisements about different travel packages printed on the glossy pages of the daily newspapers and travel magazines. 
                               

Switzerland has always been on my travel-list due to its exotic quotient and is considered the Mecca of tourism. The snow clad Alps beckons the traveller in me.

 Zurich's downtown offers a unique mixture of attractions – over 50 museums and more than 100 art galleries,  Lucerne is the essence of Switzerland . Interlaken considered the adventure capital of Switzerland are some of the place that I would love to visit.

After choosing of the destination, comes the most difficult part, tour planning. Just like all information-gatherers, I too visited Swisstours.com and was fascinated by the breath-takingly beautiful  images displayed on the website. But the prices mentioned on the page were too high. I read about Skyscanner on Indiblogger. Skyscanner is travel info website which provides one with info of the cheapest flights, hotels, travel packages available, etc. Booking through Skyscanner can save time , money and energy. A mine of information was at the click of a button.

                                      

I was provided the option of all the flights flying to the Swiss country. I further had the option to sort out the flights according to ‘price per adult’, ‘total journey time’, ‘number of stops’ and the most important ‘time of arrival and departure’.

Gone are the days to book costly and uncomfortable flights, hotels, etc. After the flight booking process, I was offered the choice for the cheapest but comfortable hotels and service apartments.  I was offered the choice for the cheapest but comfortable hotels and service apartments and was spoilt for choice with a wide array of accommodation.

 After the booking of hotels comes the option to book taxi cabs for sightseeing at the cheapest rates possible. I was really impressed on seeing that the final payment was to be made through recommended travel agents AFTER one planned the WHOLE tour and was assured comfort throughout the stay.

I have 'liked' the Skyscanner Facebook Page and spread a words among my close friends. Maybe we could all plan together to visit this travel destination and try to avail of group booking discounts.

Travel alone or travel with family/friends. Travel light and smart with Skyscanner.
