Finding Cheap Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours

Author : Keith Kravitz   Top Author

Las Vegas is home to deals, promotions, and discounts. Never pay full retail price. Especially on Grand Canyon helicopter tours. So, where are the best helicopter coupons? Online, of course.

The trick to getting great discounts is buying direct from the tour operator. Not the broker. Not the hotel concierge. Not the sidewalk ticket vendor. Each of these guys exists because they make insane commissions. The result: You pay more.

Tour operators accept middlemen as part of doing business. In a perfect world, however, they'd prefer to book all their trips themselves. Why? The process is smoother. Customer service is higher. And, most importantly, they know that you're getting the right trip at a fair price. Brokers, on the other hand, are interested in selling you the trip that gets biggest commission.

Tour operators worship the concept of "customer value." They also "get" the idea of repeat and referral business. If they didn't, they wouldn't be in business. These companies know intrinsically that if you are happy with your helicopter trip that you'll refer your family and friends. It's a "value" that's so important that they factor it into their business plan. Middlemen don't do that.

As such, tour operators like Papillon Helicopters, Maverick Helicopters, and Sundance Helicopters do everything in their power to get you to purchase your flight on their website. How so? By offering you coupons and specials that give you savings up to 35 percent.

For instance, take Papillon's Grand Celebration tour package, the most in-demand West Rim tour that lands at the bottom of the Canyon. It retails for $399. That's a fair price when compared to the company's competitors. But if you book that same tour online, you pay only $280. That's a savings of nearly $120. Or how about the Grand Celebration with Skywalk and Boat, Papillon's #2 best-selling tour. It retails for $597 but savvy travelers can book it at $400 per person, netting themselves a savings of nearly $200!

Groups of ten or more people can really load up on the savings. Eligible for the small-group discount, these parties can take an additional 10 percent off the already low promotional price. On the Papillon Helicopters website, for example, click on the "small-group" pricing button on the left side of the page. This will refresh the site and you'll have access to small-group rates.

Briefly about buying trips on the Internet: I've made purchases on all helicopter operator websites listed in this article. Each of their sites is safe and secure. I've never received a receipt that failed to include the discount. I've also never had any issues concerning my special promotional pricing at check-in. If I have a negative experience, I will post it on my review site.

There's no lack of helicopter tour coupons in Las Vegas, the leader in discount tour packages. Tour brokers will swear they've got the best tour deals. Not true. The owners of the helicopter tour companies offer the best price. If you book with them, they'll thank you with prices that are up to 35 percent off the retail price. They do this because they value your business and want to sell you a trip that meets and exceeds your expectations. And that's why they post fantastic promotional offers on their websites.
