It’s What We Do That Counts…

It’s What We Do That Counts…

Don’t forget – it is what your clients do while on holiday that makes it memorable and special, and DoSomethingDifferent.com sells a mind-boggling range of experiences in hundreds of holiday destinations worldwide, from balloon flights over Cairns to diving with sharks or abseiling down Table Mountain in Cape Town – there is not much you won’t find!

At Dosomethingdifferent.com we enable customers to choose and pre-book amazing experiences that are tested by our contractors, insured, and covered under law. This is a much better option than buying an overpriced, uninsured tour from a hotel concierge desk or local guide!

But is it cheaper in resort?

We’ll use Florida theme parks as a case study. The simple answer is: it’s NOT! One million people travelled to Orlando last year from the UK and Ireland, 90% of whom will have visited one of the theme parks, yet Universal Studios and Walt Disney World report that more than 40% of UK and Irish consumers arrived at the gates without having pre-purchased tickets.

The Universal 2 Park Bonus Ticket at just €119 is valid for 14 days entry to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. We recommend a minimum of three days to explore both parks in the peak season and yet to buy a one-day hopper ticket at the gates, customers will be paying $120, the equivalent of €92.

DoSomethingDifferent.com’s best-selling theme park ticket is the Freedom pass, a combination of all major theme parks. This ticket works out to be just €37 per day for a 14-day holiday. These figures, we hope, speak for themselves and will provide our agent partners with the ammunition to overcome the misconceptions their clients may have when it comes to whether ticket rates are available cheaper in resort.
