Why book a Zanzibar package with Dream World Adventures?
Why book a Zanzibar package through a specialist tour operator like ourselves, which includes your return flights, accommodation on Zanzibar and airport to hotel transfers, you may ask? These days it is just so easy to book each of the package components directly with the airlines and hotels. Our explanation here below will have you see the benefits of such a choice. We receive significant discounts from our preferred suppliers on Zanzibar that we then in turn package together with the remaining travel components in order to offer you our Zanzibar specials. If you book your travel package components separately and in the event that your flight is delayed, you will need to try and contact the hotel and/or the transfer company to update them with the changes. Communication on Zanzibar is often not as easy as what you may be accustomed to, so it may prove challenging. We have personally visited Zanzibar Island on many occasions in the past, stayed and visited most of the best hotels on Zanzibar that includes My Blue Hotel, few other travel consultants are able to say the same! What if you need to change your itinerary due to an unforeseen personal problem? Instead of speaking to one person to make things quick and easy, you again will need to contact people that do not offer a 24 hour emergency contact number!
What to do if unexpected problems arise on your Zanzibar trip?
Dream World Adventures provides all our valued clients with a 24 hour emergency contact person, that be able to provide you with professional advice and in most cases solve the problem on the spot. We also highly recommend travel insurance to be taken out on the day that you book your holiday. Travel insurance is the best way to ensure that you will be covered for those unforeseen problems that sometimes can happen while travelling in another country. We highly recommend that you ensure that you have adequate travel insurance cover for your trip to Zanzibar. Very few travellers take the time to research this important aspect of travel that is available at affordable prices – compared to the benefits it offers. The cost of travel insurance does not relate to the value of the trip, but rather depends on the duration of the journey, age of the traveller and level of cover required. Most seasoned travellers will agree that flight delays and lost luggage are always possible, although airlines do their best to minimize any inconvenience! Having comprehensive travel insurance is best to lessen the impact these unfortunate events will have on your holiday plans.
