In this blog post, we will teach you how to have the best holidays of your life on a gulet.
You can use this formula for any type of holidays, not just gulet cruises.
After you read this blog post you will never again have bad holidays. All you need to do is follow instructions.
My name is Mitja Mirtič and together with my wife Alenka, we are the owners of company Goolets.
All I can say is we LOVE GULET CRUISES and in last 10 years, we have perfected the WINNING FORMULA for perfect holidays.
In this post, I will spill out all the secrets.
It is a 5 STEPS PROCESS which takes less time every time you do it.
Here we go.
STEP NO.1 – WHAT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU AND THE PEOPLE CRUISING WITH YOU?
If you travel with small kids you have completely different priorities from a group of active seniors traveling alone.
When you know WHO you are traveling with – we can let you know what will make your holidays the best experience ever!
STEP NO.2 – WHAT DO YOU REALLY WISH TO GET FROM YOUR HOLIDAYS?
If you do not know how you wish to feel when the holidays are over – you will not plan them the correct way.
STEP NO.3 + 4 – MARKET RESEARCH + WHAT CAN YOU GET FOR YOUR MONEY?
No research can be done if you do not have an idea of approximate wishes. What is better for you:
Croatia or the Caribbean? https://www.goolets.net/croatia-cruises-vs-caribbean-cruises/
Hotels or gulet cruises? https://www.goolets.net/gulets-against-villa-hotels/
Huge cruise liners maybe? https://www.goolets.net/gulets-against-cruise-liners/
When you get an idea of what you want and where – you research what you can get for your money and compare.
This gives you a basic idea of what would be better FOR YOU. And then you go on with next step. COLLECTING EXACT OFFERS and NEGOTIATIONS.
STEP NO.5 – NEGOTIATIONS & EXACT OFFERS!
When you know what you want it is up to your agent to find you the most amazing offers & deals according to your wishes.
STEP NO.6 – BOOKING & SAFETY
HOW DO AGENCIES NORMALLY DO IT?
a) What is your budget, dates, number of people and destination?
b) Check what is available for your budget!
c) Present offers.
HOW DO WE DO IT? THE WAY TO TRAVEL LIKE DONALD TRUMP.
STEP NO.1 – WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU?
We learn the structure of your group (family with young kids, family with teenagers, couples with no kids, seniors, mixed group of all ages, other….)
As an expert with this, we get a very good idea what are the most important things that are important to you.
Small kids – Safety for kids is always first – everything else is second!
Teenagers – god forbid they get bored during their holidays! If teens are okay – the rest of the trip will be perfect for sure!
No kids – food, leisure, comfort, relaxation – all about comfort and being happy
Active seniors – lots of hiking, explorations, land trips, action…
Passive seniors – all about being as comfortable as possible
STEP NO-2 WHAT ARE YOUR PERSONAL PREFERENCES – HOW DO YOU WISH TO FEEL WHEN THE HOLIDAY IS OVER?
Some people wish to just lay on the beach all day and take the mind off.
Some people wish to party all the time.
Some people wish to get closer to their families & friends. Some people wish to forget about their business.
How do you wish to feel when your holidays are over?
– Full of new impressions?
– With 1.000s of photos to show off?
– With lots of new knowledge of the destination?
– In love?
When you know what your goal is (not during the holidays, but when they are finished) – you will have THE BEST HOLIDAYS OF YOUR LIFE EVER!
So one of our most important things we do in Goolets is to HELP YOU DETERMINE YOUR MAIN GOAL!
After that, the rest is just technical stuff!
STEP NO.3 + 4 + 5 MARKET RESEARCH + FINDING THE MOST INTERESTING OPTIONS + NEGOTIATIONS
When we know your structure and your holiday goals the rest is easy.
All we have to do is
– find the perfect gulet that will match your comfort & safety standards,
– suggest you an itinerary your kids & your family will love,
– propose vessels, where the crew will fit your wishes, age, requirements,
ALL THIS IN YOUR BUDGET RANGE, WITH NEGOTIATED PRICES, AVAILABLE IN YOUR DATES AND WITH ENOUGH ROOM FOR EVERYBODY TO FIT IN
STEP NO.6 – BOOKING AND SAFETY
It’s one thing to book a gulet or holidays – and another thing to arrive on your holidays and have peace of mind when you realize everything is fine.
What an agency should provide you with is:
a) Make sure your booking investment is safe
b) Help you with any issues you might have during your cruise
d) Assist you with any additional wishes you have connected to your holidays.
Conclusion: HOW MANY TIMES DID WE MENTION THE WORD BUDGET OR MONEY IN THIS POST?
Lots of travel agencies in these times are concentrated mostly on your budget, how much you can spend and how to get you the deal with the highest discount and not the deal where you will be the happiest person in the World.
We did the same mistakes in the past but this has changed in the last couple of years.
If we know what makes you happy, what is important for you and what is your goal for your holidays
WE WILL FIND OPTIONS THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE DONALD TRUMP on your holidays.
