Every Little Helps!
Unless you have a secret money tree at the bottom of your garden, the chances are that you will be quite happy to hear about any money saving tips when it comes to travel.
Of course everyone wants to venture off on a holiday or two every year, and if you have children, of course you want them to have family holiday memories to remember for the rest of their lives. The probability however is that money is too tight to take everyone off into the sunset more than once per year, if that.
Don’t worry however, as there are many ways to save cash here and therefore, and many of these savings can add up to be rather large ones.
Some people find it rather worrying to put together the details of a holiday themselves, but it can actually work out cheaper than booking a package holiday. Having said that, it’s always worthwhile looking for any deals on package breaks, but overall, booking your flight separately to your hotel and transfer can mean that you can take advantage of deals and discounts, creating a bespoke holiday at a lower price. Check out sites like Skyscanner for flight deals, giving you various options.
Split Flight Bookings
Part of using a DIY holiday approach means that you can split book your flights, and this can often yield very happy results in terms of cost. This basically means that you can fly from one airport and back to a different one, taking advantages of deals. You can also go for odd numbered days in return flights, e.g. 8 days or 9 days, rather than the traditional 7 or 10 days. You can also go for indirect flights too, if it doesn’t take too long to get to your destination.
Vouchers and Coupons
Downloading a voucher app or using a website, such as My Voucher Codes can often mean that you find money-saving deals on breaks that you would never have otherwise been able to afford. This can also stretch to restaurants and attractions in the place you’re planning on visiting.
Avoiding Suitcases Charges
If you can manage with hand luggage only, certainly give this a go. This idea doesn’t work in all cases, as it depends how long you’re going away for, the type of holiday you’re going on, and also the airline you’re using, but if you choose an airline which gives you a generous hand luggage allowance, you’re good to go!
These are all easy ways you can cut the cost of your holiday, meaning that you can pencil in those dates with work, and get planning your next destination.
