Algarve extends free golf bag booking window

2.20pm 10th December 2020 - Travel

Golfers considering going a golf holiday to Portugal’s Algarve region over the next six months can do so in the knowledge that the cost of transporting their golf clubs will be covered by the local tourism board.

Algarve Tourism has announced that it is extending its ‘Golf Clubs are on Us’ booking window until the end of January, and is also increasing the travel window until the end of May 2021.

Extending both the previous booking and travel windows by an additional month will enable more golfers to make savings of up to €100 per person.

Since launching the campaign – which is being administered in partnership with leading golf travel companies – the destination has seen high demand, with tour operator partner agreements confirmed with businesses in the UK, Ireland, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and The Netherlands.

The free golf bag offer will be applied to bookings made with a licensed golf tour operator for a minimum five-night stay taken at any point up to the end of May, with bookings having to be confirmed by January 31, 2021. 

A spokesperson for Algarve Tourism said: “As temperatures continue to drop across northern Europe, extending our ‘Golf Clubs are on Us’ promotion provides some heart-warming news and additional opportunities for more golfers to come and experience spring sunshine golf with us. We are hopeful that the recent positive vaccine news, tied to the Clean & Safe measures at our venues, will have golfers jumping at the chance to get on board with this offer.”
