Do you dare to go on vacation without having any idea of what your destination is going to be? In recent times, websites that organize surprise trips through Europe at a really cheap price have become very fashionable. They play with the advantage of seducing users who like risks and who also want everything done, without worrying about deciding. In addition to choosing the destination, these pages reserve the hotel and give different directions for users to enjoy during their stay in the country.
If you are interested in this idea, and you want to know some of these surprise travel websites, do not stop reading. We reveal five of them with destinations at a good price.
One of the most consulted pages to travel by surprise is Waynabox. Its philosophy lies in the idea of offering trips through Europe from only 150 euros per person (flight plus hotel). However, in recent times surprise trips to the United States have also been added, or what they call premium trips, which by paying more you have the option of going to a four or five-star hotel and flying in a high-end company .
But focusing on their surprise trips from 150 euros, Waynabox prepares everything and decides for you. You will know your destination, flights and hotels two days before starting the trip. In addition, this company selects the accommodation based on websites dedicated to it or on the opinions of its customers . This means, if you are demanding, you will not have problems with your stay. Hotels usually have a minimum score of 3.5 out of five and are also in central locations. Therefore, you just have to let yourself go.
When creating your trip, you will only have to enter the dates that interest you. Look, because depending on one day or another, the price per person may vary slightly. Waynabox also gives you the possibility to discard a destination you don't want to go to, either because you've already been or because you just don't like it. Likewise, it will also let you limit flight schedules, in case there are hours when you cannot fly. At the moment, her surprise trips do not depart from all the airports in Spain. They are only available to depart from Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Alicante or Bilbao.
Very similar to the previous website, Wowtrip offers surprise trips at a low price. It broke into Spain last July after being quite successful in the UK, Switzerland or Germany. In just three clicks, the user can enjoy a tailor-made trip. Of course, before you will have to make some decisions regarding the dates or city of departure. These are basically the only parameters, as Wowtrip does the rest. That is, choose the destination, the hotel and the flight.
The prices of the trips have been designed so that everyone has the possibility of traveling in Europe. In this way, we can find plans from 150 euros, which include direct roundtrip flights, as well as a stay in three and four-star accommodations in the most central area of the destination city (with a higher score to 3.5 on TripAdvisor). It should be noted that the price of the hotel also includes breakfast, but not lunch or dinner.
This website offers to travel by surprise with vacation packages of 3, 4 or 5 days with roundtrip flights included. As in the previous websites, Flykube selects a central 3 or 4-star hotel, in which, yes, breakfast is not included. When it comes time to reveal the destination, which is usually a couple of days before leaving, they give you a travel guide so you don't miss anything on your trip. There are 20 possible destinations on Flykube, including Lisbon, Milan, Paris or London. The user can discard some destinations in case they have already visited them.
With a standard pack for 3 days (two nights), Drumwit also gives you the possibility to choose a surprise trip for up to 8 days (80 euros more will be added for each extra person and night). The cheapest package costs from 150 euros per person and includes two hotel nights and flights (round trip). There's also the Deluxe package, which, for a little more, selects higher-category accommodations, plus three destinations to discard for free. And it is that in the economic pack it only allows to discard one. If you want to do it with more, you would have to add 5 euros to your reservation per person and discarded destination.
Like the previous pages, Drumwit will let you know your destination and accommodation 48 hours from the start. In addition, they will send you the check-in of your flights to save you time and queues. It should be noted that Drumwit packs include carry-on luggage. Depending on the airline you touch, the conditions may vary slightly. It is possible that you can only take one cabin suitcase and also have it lowered to the hold for free. All the information will be shown on the boarding passes.
The Wonder Trip
Finally, with the same concept as the previous ones, we have The Wonder Trip, a way to travel through Europe on weekends from 150 euros. All this with flights and accommodation with a minimum of quality and without having to worry about organizing anything. You will only have to select the number of travelers and the departure airport. Destinations are available from Alicante, Barcelona, Bilbao, Madrid, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca or Valencia. In general, all these websites start from destinations where many trips to Europe leave at the end of the day.
In the same way, you can uncheck destinations you don't want to go to, select dates and limit flight times. The Wonder Trip does everything else and will tell you your destination and accommodation two days before departure.
