To prevent this from happening, there are at the time of booking several things to consider.
The expectations clear define
"The perfect break begins at the planning stage, especially if the Package is booked for a special occasion such as Valentine's day," explains Marc Born, one of the founders and managing Director of the Swiss Online platform Weekend4two.ch: "The expectations are often very high, and the risk to be disappointed, the greater. Therefore, it is worthwhile to define for a short break in the conversation the expectations and take the time to choose." It is important to examine the price and also the length of the arrival.

Also in the Package of services received should be carefully studied, says Marc Born, of sends per year, around 50'000 people in the short holiday: "Just because it is, according to the Hotel, a Spa or romantic weekend, doesn't mean that it feels for the customer."
caution before bargain prices
Big discounts or extreme bargain prices are to be treated with caution, especially when it comes to a Package, are often reported to be very high in price reductions, since free services are also included in the offer. Marc Born, gives the following example: "The welcome drink, which is already in the package, is quickly charged a fee of 10 Swiss francs per Person. In principle, the following applies: In the case of price declines of 30 percent or more, you should be careful. Such deals are often only on the first glance, a bargain. In order discounts for last minute bookings or early bird discounts are gladly offered."
What makes for the specialist, a really good Package? The overall experience from A to Z is the most Important thing, says Marc Born: "The customer should feel from the start, well taken care of. From my point of view, the Package needs a red thread, whether it is a Spa - or a romantic getaway." For Born a certain degree of flexibility is also attached. Especially during the cool Season or on weekends Spa hotels were very well attended and often crowded. Therefore, the expert recommends to travel during the week. The prices are significantly cheaper, and it is generally quiet.

as a General rule: Even if it is only a short break, the recovery effect is enormous: "if you treat yourself to a short break can recharge the batteries in a short period of time.
