Everyone is feeling the squeeze of Brexit, but that doesn’t mean everyone can’t find time to enjoy themselves over the summer. Taking time off to relax and enjoy ourselves is incredibly important and should be taken seriously. Going away doesn’t have to break the bank, though, and with these hot tips, any time away from the holiday of your dreams to a humble weekend away will be much cheaper.
Perfect your timing
Booking your flights online can be something of a hassle, to say the least, and there is a multitude of insider tips, tricks, and loopholes to really finding the best deals. Timing when it comes to booking flights is crucial, but booking early is not necessarily the best way to save money. I’ve heard that booking at least five weeks before your journey is the optimum frame of time to get the best price. Signing up to receive email alerts from websites that offer travel deals can also be a fruitful way to save those hard earned.
Homes and Hostels not Hotels
We all know that hotels are expensive, and often ultimately superfluous to a traveller’s most important basic needs. Price comparing hotels and hostels is one of the best ways to significantly cut down on costs and find the best deals, but organising accommodation via revolutionary and rapidly popularising sites such as Toprooms that encourage a more personalised, visceral experience for a traveller through a more personable, integrative holiday experience is arguably the best option for saving and potentially improving the your holiday overall. Toprooms epitomise their philosophy with this relatable quote: “A holiday isn’t just about where you go – it’s what you do, who you meet and the awesome selfies you take.”
Shop Around for Exchange Rates
Exchange rates vary. It’s something that everyone knows about, but often they don’t have the time or know where to go to get the best rates for their pounds. Shopping around to see exchange rates can be a good way to save money.
All Inclusive Deals
Booking an all inclusive deal is a tried and tested way to save cash while on holiday. Having everything included in a prepaid amount is reassuring and will save you not just money but also unwanted stress. Booking all inclusive in advance means that any unexpected changes in travel costs won’t be a threat. Don’t forget that all inclusive deals can vary slightly from hotel to hotel, so make sure you’re familiar with all of the fine print.
Direct Your Own Excursions
Booking trips and excursions through travel companies and commercial touring agents can save a lot of legwork, but comparing the prices to car rental or public transport costs can be very revealing. Organising your own travel on your trip is a commitment, but when reducing costs becomes critical it is a great way to do it.
