Choosing your training camp destination

<p><span lang='EN-GB'>Take your time and have a look at our new website to learn about the individual destinations. Each one has been given a detailed description and a few photos to boot. In addition, we always update the information whenever necessary. We invest many weeks and tens of thousands of kilometres each year to compile all of this information. We visit our destinations as often as we can to make sure that we always have the most up-to-date details, as this is the only way we can keep you informed about everything at the destination and make sure that we are able to answer any questions you may have. Using our filter function, you can quickly and easily find all the destinations that match what you are looking for. So that you can find them again any time you need, you can add your favourites to your wish list under your customer account.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p><span lang='EN-GB'>Should you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us! It is particularly important that a destination matches the planned focal points of a training camp. For example, we often receive requests for winter training camps in Alpine regions which are still covered in a thick snow as late as Easter. <o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p><span lang='EN-GB'>Competition drives business! You really should get offers from different event organisers. Yes – you read that right. We don’t want to be your only source of information. We would prefer that you make a comprehensive comparison and come to the conclusion that you can book the best product in the industry with the best deal for the money with SOCCATOURS, rather than possibly having the feeling that you paid too much for our services.<br /><br />Why do we think we can say that? We know our destinations inside and out and know all about their respective strengths and weaknesses. We know how our staff work and that we offer the best service amongst the competition – because we carefully select our destinations and painstakingly prepare each and every football training camp.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p><span lang='EN-GB'>Not least because we know that our customers are quite satisfied with our work, as proven by our <strong>recommendation rate of 95%</strong> and our above-average number of returning customers.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p><span lang='EN-GB'>It may be awfully tempting to book a fabulously cheap offer, but our experience tells us that you really should pay close attention to the details – and we can’t warn customers about this often enough. You can’t compare apples and oranges! <o:p></o:p></span></p> <p><span lang='EN-GB'>Unfortunately, a few organisers are out there fighting for customers with fantastic misleading offers <strong>(e.g. €399.00 for a one-week training camp in Turkey, all inclusive with flight)</strong> which come with an asterisk, however. Somewhere in the small print you then find things like an additional fuel surcharge, a seasonal surcharge, security fees, airport fees and other ‘surcharges’ which aren’t described in any greater detail. All these extra charges add up to a hefty sum. So make sure you always compare the final price! <o:p></o:p></span></p> <p><span lang='EN-GB'>If it’s important to you that your journey to the destination be as short as possible because you only want to have a brief training camp in Turkey anyway, then you should avoid Alanya, which some organisers like to offer as a hotel where you have to take your chances when you arrive. After a two- to three-hour flight, you’ll sit in the hotel shuttle for at least that long to make your way to this hotel. If you fly out of Germany in the afternoon, your chances of making it back to the hotel before midnight are next to none. You can imagine how this impacts the first practice the next day. As you can see, flight times are a crucial aspect which we certainly treat with the correspondingly high level of importance. <o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p><span lang='EN-GB'>Now you’ve compared all available offers and have to make a fundamental decision: the more expensive destination with everything you want or the cheaper option for which you have to make a few sacrifices. We speak from experience when we say: choose the destination which meets the most of your wishes, even if (perhaps even because) it is the most expensive destination that is available to you within your budget. Don’t just go for the supposedly cheapest option simply to save a few euros. <strong>Choose the best</strong>! Make a decision that you can be proud of later on, because money can no longer be an issue – after all, the budget has already been approved.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p><span lang='EN-GB'>In the large majority of cases, customers want the best possible for their money, regardless of whether this means a beautiful fitness and wellness area for regeneration or the quality of the pitches. If your decision is rational and justifiable, you’ll also be able to defend it with a clear conscience and, in particular, be able to give your reasons if you are asked about them by concerned parents or your players, who might prefer a different destination after some internet research. We are aware of several instances when the coach of a junior team thought they should make an especially economic decision in the particular interest of the parents by going against our advice and opting for the cheapest thing offered by a football training camp organiser. The disappointment was big, as the quality of the sports facilities was so poor that it was not possible to practise properly and two players even suffered injuries.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p><span lang='EN-GB'>As previously mentioned, we always recommend clarifying with absolute certainty which additional costs could arise during a stay. Another example: one dedicated coach wanted to save €15.00 per person and opted for a three-star hotel in Croatia, deciding against our four-star offer. The parents were then up in arms with the training director, because the price for the four-star hotel would have included drinks at meals, and the supposedly cheaper offer was therefore ultimately the more expensive one.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p><span lang='EN-GB'>Sort out all offers that don’t fall within your budget and make an objective choice for the most suitable destination for you with the best services. If you do that, then your decision will be beyond reproach if the training camp perhaps is not as successful as you had hoped – because your decision was well informed and full of conviction.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
