Charters to the Dominican Republic

Today, not only regular flights, which you read about above, fly to the Dominican Republic. There is also a huge number of charters from different cities of Europe, USA, Canada.

It is important to know:

Everyone knows what a charter is. For those who don’t know, I’ll briefly explain. This is a plane that is chartered by some major travel agency for a specific route. You can get on this plane only by purchasing a package tour from this tour agency. Where the price of the tour will include the flight. Sometimes, of course, charter tickets appear on free sale, but this is rare.

Remember, not every package tour guarantees a direct charter flight, sometimes they are regular flights and even with transfers. But if you are flying on a charter direct flight, then you bought a package tour.

Where to buy a ready-made tour at the best price can be found at the links at the end of the article. Only the largest players in the global package tour market are listed there.

Following the link you will find a rating of 5-stars hotels in different resorts of the Dominican Republic.
