I still remember Miss World contest in 1998, when everyone was staring at gorgeous women, striving for peace on Earth, while my eyes were glued on those magnificent rounded rocks, white sandy beaches and crystal clear ocean in behind. Since then Seychelles had been somewhere on my mind but yet far enough to be saved for this special occasion. Meanwhile I was lucky enough to visit Dominican Republic, Cuba, Turks and Caicos Islands, Bahamas, Maldives and some other beautiful beach destinations, but when looking back it seems to me those were only small steps to reach the “grand finale”. Don’t get me wrong – all previously mentioned destinations are fantastic and I know there are many more ocean pearls to be discovered, but one thing is for sure: Seychelles were more than worth waiting for.
Booking a flight
A lot of people are still wondering whether booking a flight is something they should entrust to a travel agent or do by themselves. I am not here to convince you that only one option is good because it is not. Travel agencies are believed to be a safer option, but then again who will vouch for you if they go bankrupt? This shit happens, you know. Furthermore, the agencies don’t work for free, so be prepared to pay some extra money. At last but not the least, if you are not sure about the destination or the dates of your travel and prefer some flexibility, then perhaps it is better not to waste their time. Eventually they will stop trying. So, if you are wondering if it is safe to book a flight ticket online by yourself, how to get the best price, what happens if your flight gets cancelled etc., you came to the right place.
