Where Can You Find the Best Banff Travel Deals?

As someone who has spent a significant amount of time in Banff, Alberta, I know that Banff travel deals are not always the easiest to come across. The same goes if you are planning to find deals at Lake Louise hotels. Typically you will find Banff packages and Banff deals in the off season which is fall, October and November, and spring, April and May. Below are a few of my opinions and comments to get you the best Banff deals possible.

There are three ski resorts in the area that attract travelers from all over the world to experience famous Banff holiday, Norquay, Sunshine Village and Lake Louise. Each offers a completely different travel experience that should be enjoyed by everyone. Personally, my favorite ski resort is Sunshine Village because it has the best views and biggest variety of trails for all levels of skiing and snowboarding.

Every year I get calls from that last minute traveler who is looking to find the best travel deal or last minute Banff packages. Unfortunately it does not always work like that. If you want to get the best deal even it is critical to always book in advance. The best holiday is booked at least three months in advance to take advantage cheap accommodation in the Banff park area. My favorite Banff hotel is the Rimrock Hotel because it offers amazing accommodation specials year round. It is comparably as nice as the Fairmont Banff Springs and is two thirds the price. It is also located across the street from the natural hot springs. Who wouldn’t enjoy a vacation in a natural hot spring in the middle of winter. You can even rent your own bathing suit there if you forget yours. This experience will for sure complete the ideal travel xperience. As long as you have your ski rentals, lift tickets and transportation then you have a wide variety of places to choose from. The main Banff park hotels on the main drag are Mount Royal, Banff Aspen Lodge, Brewsters and then further up is the Fox Hotel, Delta, Banff Caribou Lodge and Spa and the Ptarmigan Inn. When you get about a fifteen minute walk outside downtown you can find great spots at great prices for Banff accommodations like Inns of Banff, Tunnel Mountain and Hidden Ridge.

Online Travel Agents – One of the Best Places to Find Spa Travel Deals

Spa travel deals are becoming more and more prevalent as everyday living costs escalate and we slump deeper into recession. This leads to bookings being down at day spas and resorts and bigger discounts being offered to you, the consumer.

When the Green Valley Spa and Resort in Utah noticed a slacking of in reservations they were quick to take action by implementing various promotions such as, bring a friend free or $700 off a stay in December. Alternatively you can book for next year or buy a gift certificate for a friend and still receive this reduction.

Most online travel agents and spas nationwide are offering deals and one of the best ways to stay in touch with what is on offer is to sign up for their newsletters. This way you will get to hear about special offers and big savings on spa travel deals that don’t appear elsewhere. So at least sign up for the newsletters on the following websites WaySpa, Spirit Vacation, Cruise Direct, and Orient Express to ensure you will be offered a wide variety of spa travel deals, wherever and however you are planning to travel.

Some websites offering spa travel deals allow you to sign up for spa or place specific newsletters. So give some thought to the places you would like to visit, or perhaps a favorite spa destination you have visited in the past. For me this means my favorite haunts in Arizona and Utah, Red Mountain Resort and Spa, and Westgate Park City Resort and Spa, but don’t worry if you don’t yet have a dream spa to speak about, or if you are planning to travel further a field, just visit Travelocity or Expedia to keep up to date with the latest spa travel deals.

Other ways to find deals include:

Scouting around for last minute deals. This is easy if you keep your list of websites bookmarked so that you can check regularly for spur of the moment bargains.
Packages are an excellent way to save money and often include fees, taxes and gratuities.
Ask if there are discounts for groups as the Green Valley Hotel Spa mentioned above is not the only spa destination to have offered two for one deals, and this is becoming commonplace.
You can also look out for mid week spa travel deals.
