aTake a moment a think about when was the last time you actually paid a visit to a spa? In case spa experience is something that you don’t want to consider due of financial constraints, you may want to think again. Back in the day it wasn’t easy to find a decent spa resort for reasonable money, but now that we have internet, we can even get a good idea about some remote destination from your bedroom. Even better, you don’t have to deal with agencies that only want to sell you offers which are in their interest, not yours.
Before I discovered what internet has to offer in terms of spa deals, my last spa experience was somewhere back in the 90’s when my husband and I were going through the last stage of our marriage, trying to fix something that was beyond the point of no return.
We booked a three-day vacation through one agency and not only did they rip us off, but the service was sub-par and shortly after I divorced my husband. Great story, huh? For almost 10 years I never even thought about going for a spa treatment because of my previous experience and I was occupied with work trying to get the divorce out of my head. It’s not all that bad, though. One day I stumbled upon a website called Spa Finder which allows you to browse thousands of spa deals online, domestic or international. There are many promotions and offers to choose from, sometimes up to 50% off.
I started with small and cheap treatments but once I realized how much I missed spa experience in my life I had to go all the way and book a full weekend at an amazing discount price. When I discovered I could find more discount at websites like Group On, going for some spa relaxation became a regular occurrence, and my friends started calling me “the spa enthusiast” because I’ve been talking about it so much. If you are looking for local Australian spas, here you might find some great Brisbane deals.
I’ve also signed up for email alerts at some websites and they send me an email every time they offer a treatment at a discount price in my area. Some deals even extend beyond spa treatments and I was able to get football and concert tickets along with my treatment for bargain prices’
here were a couple of times where I think I overspent because sometimes the people working at spas can be sneaky when offering massages during the treatment without ever mentioning they will be charged extra. So my advice is to you is always to ask whether something costs extra.
Lately I haven’t been going to my favorite spa destinations on my own, as my friends came along on more than one occasion. This way we were also able to get discounted deals. Also, I’ve met a whole bunch of nice people in my favorite spa destinations and sometimes we share costs of traveling which is also a huge money saver.
