When planning a group or corporate event in Portugal or anywhere else you will have various options.
First check out the options and learn how we work and differ
Your choice will be experienced DMC or Travel agents, using one of the many booking sites or you can spent your days googling hotels, restaurants and activities comparing prices, checking review sites and contacting hotels directly.
Some of the advantages and disadvantages
- DMC and travel agents. Advantage: safe, secure and saves a lot of time. Negative: costly both DMC’s and travel agents will raise the actual costs and charge fees for their services
- Using bookings sites Advantages: saves time, gives an oversight of possibilities with price comparisons, availability etc. Negative: costs are often not actual, not negotiable, most are not suitable for group requests, no direct contact with suppliers.
- Contacting suppliers directly. Advantages: cheaper, modular, direct information. Negative: time consuming, language barriers, no guarantees
Who is Go Discover Portugal?
We started as a booking site but have grown to combine the 3 ways of travel planning mentioned above into a single solution.
- A booking service with a website with 1000’s of suppliers aimed a the luxury, adventure, group and corporate market niches
- Personalized online and telephone service without raising supplier prices. We are not in first instance a DMC or travel agent. We are a booking site with a fully personalized service.
We do provide Event management services on request.
- strict and binding contracts, back ground checks, insurance with our partners and providers. We buy in bulk, contact suppliers directly with your request and negotiate lowest available prices without loss of service. This takes a lot of work out of your hands without increasing price.

The hotels always provide us with the best possible prices and often with discounts.
