Setting off on a cruise is such an exciting experience, promising unforgettable memories. 

You get to see some incredible locations all the while mingling with like-minded people while enjoying the amenities aboard your floating hotel and having some amazing on-shore excursions.

However, when it comes to booking your perfect cruise experience, it’s easy to get lost in the excitement and forget about the less exciting details, like booking your flights to get to the starting port of your cruise. 

But did you know there’s a way to avoid being caught out by the extra expense and hassle of booking flights?   

The ultimate cost-saving hack

The best way to save on your cruise holiday flights is to bundle your air and cruise fares into a single booking. 

This is because cruise lines have access to wholesale fares, which are often a cheaper price than those available to you when booked separately. 

 Not only does this hack save you money, but it also comes with a number of benefits offering you peace of mind for your travels. These include: 

  • No worries about delays. If your flight is delayed, the cruise line will go out of its way to ensure you get on that ship.
  • Everything you need is all there in one easy booking. There’s no need to juggle itineraries between multiple companies. 
  • Change of mind and cancellation flexibility. If you change your mind up to six months before your departure date, you’ll enjoy the same flexibility to cancel/change as offered on your cruise fare.

While air and cruise packages are available for most cruise lines, when booking a Princess Cruises with Travel at 60, these fantastic money-saving bundles are available on virtually every cruise offered. 

Even when booking a local trip, such as the ever-popular Round Australia cruise from Sydney, bundling your airfare can make it easier and more affordable for those who live away from the major Aussie cruise ports.
