Santini Wanderlust Talks: How to Save Money when Booking Activities through a Resort

"Santini Wanderlust Talks" is my Wednesday Series where I share BTS, tips, hacks, tools, and resources to build my travel piggy bank and pro tips for saving money on travel.

Since it’s #NationalDolphinDay, I’m sharing a tip for saving money when booking activities/excursions through your resort. #SantiniWanderlustTalks

This one is EASY - Don’t be afraid to ask for a discount, package upgrades, or negotiate the price for activities/excursions booked through your resort. Just because it’s a resort doesn’t mean the prices are non-negotiable. Here’s an example of what I’ve done in the past - I checked the prices and availability to swim with the dolphins (I wanted to go the next day). I planned on reserving a spot in that moment until I found out that bookings were extremely low for the day I wanted to go. I went back the next morning and purchased a premium package at the rate of the lowest option offered. #winning I assume my win was due to the bookings still being low. Keep this tip in mind when visiting a destination during the off-peak season.

Have you ever negotiated a lower rate for activities/excursions booked through a resort?
