4 Things to Consider Before Booking a Hot Air Balloon Flight in Cappadocia11.07.2020

Are you about to finalise your balloon booking? No need to rush. It is important to take the points below into account before booking your balloon ride in Cappadocia. 

1) Do not arrange your balloon flight through your hotel

As most hotels impose commissions on balloon bookings you might get outpriced. Also, to maximize their commission, your hotel will make your booking with a balloon company who gives them the cheapest retail price. This means that you will fly with a poorly performing balloon operator. To get the best price from the best operator, it is highly advised to travellers to book directly with the balloon operator itself. 

2) Particularly look for experienced pilots 

Some perks and benefits may sound appealing, but remember that pilot flying skills holds greater importance when it comes to ballooning. Read this article to learn why pilot handling skills are crucial on hot air balloons. 

3) Make sure that your balloon will launch from the Centre of Cappadocia, Goreme. 

The magic of flying in Cappadocia is to rise with almost 200 balloons at the same time. Some balloon companies operating in Ihlara Valley (West part of Cappadocia Region) advertise their flights as if they launch from the centre of Cappadocia where most ballooners' launch bases are located. To avoid potential frustration, ask for confirmation of the launch site before you book a hot air balloon flight. 

4) Book your balloon flight at least one month in advance. 

In Cappadocia, balloon tickets are likely to sell out three weeks in advance. So we'd highly recommend travellers to book as early as possible in order to secure their seat.
