What to choose: package tour or organize a vacation independently?
For our experience, the option you choose will affect very little for the final expenses.
When you buying a ticket to Bulgaria with a travel agency, you save a lot of time and energy – you don`t need to wait for a cheap air flight, choose a hotel for a long time and аrrange insurance. At the same time, the price may be even lower than for a self-selected variant. But there is a disadvantage to this approach. You will have to choose a hotel from hundreds of popular options, and not from tens of thousands that exist realistically, you will not be able to flexibly choose the dates of your vacation.
Planning a holiday by your own, you can stay where you want. If you want, you can even rent an apartment on AirBnB instead of the hotel. If you are planning a long vacation, you can book several different hotels in your favorite Bulgarian resorts – so you will get much more impressions. The price of such a holiday dependent on the dates you choose – you can rest very cheaply or more expensive.

Why you should not go to the agency
99% of travel agencies, whose beautiful signs hang on the streets of your city, do not organize tours. They search for them with meta-finders, choose a couple of the most profitable options (with a large commission for themselves or just the cheapest) and offer them to you. In this case, often the agent who will sell you a tour, for the first time hears not only about a particular hotel, but also about the resorts of Bulgaria in general. The benefits of his advice will be very little.
For such a search and assistance in processing the documents, the travel agency takes an average of 10-12% of the tour cost – this money goes to workers’ salaries, office rent, company profits and a new car for the director.
On the Internet, there are several available meta-searches for tours. Most of them, just like the travel agent, are looking for offers among the major tour operators (those companies that organize tours, but rarely sell them by themselves). Plus the number of sales passes from popular search engines more than in a small travel agency. For this they receive additional discounts.
Buying a ticket to Bulgaria via the Internet you pay only 1-5% more then the cost of the trip. So you can save up to 100 euros out of the blue!
