Here are my top tips to bringing down the cost of your holiday, let me know if you agree with them or have some other great tips by writing in the comments section below.
Be flexible with your dates
There are some days and some time periods where it is much, much cheaper to travel If it is low season then the travel companies will offer great deals to entice people to book. So if it is possible, do not be too rigid with your dates – I know that sometimes the time you can get off work does not allow for this. Changing up your dates by even a couple of days could save you hundreds of pounds.
Consider flying from a different airport
Changing the airport that you depart from can be one of the biggest factors for saving you money. Sometimes we don’t even consider travelling a little bit further to fly out from another airport. When you are booking your flights, look at how much it would cost you to fly from a different airport, I promised you that you will be very surprised by the difference in price!
Be prepared to compromise on accommodation
If you truly want to get the best price for your holiday then you don’t always have to book the best hotel in town, you should be prepared to go down a level or two to. If you are going to a fun city then you will spend most of the time outside exploring all of the sites and soaking up the nightlife. You don’t need to have a huge suite in a five star hotel to have a good time. If you stay a little outside of the city center then you will be sure to find some mind blowing prices!
