Ways to Get More for your Money Abroad
You’ve booked your holiday, you’ve started looking at things to do when you’re there, but you’re conscious of costs piling up. Don’t fret, we’ve got some great tips to help you save money once you touch down at your destination.
On the Flight
- Don’t waste money buying expensive airport food. Did you know you can bring your own food onto most flights as long as it’s not liquid? Save money by avoiding the inflated airport food prices and bring your own. Be sure to double check on your airline’s website first.
- Don’t fork out for extra legroom seats or other perks ahead of travel. Our team of money savers here at My Voucher Codes never book any add-ons for their flights but instead ask nicely at the desk when they check in or ask the stewards once on the flight. Often, if it’s not a full flight and you ask with a smile, they’ll happily let you move to a better seat.
- Don’t buy bottled water. Before the food cart comes out, ask a member of flight staff if you can have a cup of water. 9 times out of 10 they’ll happily give it to you and it’s totally free.
Once you Land
- Avoid airport transfers. Unless they’re already included in your holiday booking, airport transfers are often way more expensive than they need to be. Instead, opt for local buses, local taxi firms or even an Uber – they’re usually way cheaper.
- Don’t buy drinks or food from your hotel. Unless you’re all inclusive, hotel food is often much more pricey than local restaurants or shops. Most rooms have fridges, so head to a local supermarket to save yourself a small fortune.
- There are some destinations where tap water isn’t safe to drink, but by and large, most countries have delicious water right there in the tap, so no need to fork out for bottled water.
- Avoid the ‘main strip’. Most destinations have a central area or road, filled with tourist-trap restaurants and bars. Whilst these can seem like a safe and easy option, in most places just walking a few streets further will mean you’ll find tonnes of other eateries where the prices are lower and the dining experience is more authentic.
- Travelling offseason to many destinations will mean you see much cheaper prices. Many European destinations, for example, hike prices for attractions in the summer months.
- Don’t travel without insurance. In the UK, we’re lucky enough to have free healthcare, but this simply isn’t the case in most other countries, and a trip to the doctor could see you spending extortionate amounts of money. Avoid these costs with a travel insurance policy. If you’re a regular traveller, multi-trip insurance is often a cheaper way to keep yourself covered abroad.
- Talk to locals. Local people are usually happy to share all their tips and tricks for your destination and let’s face it, they’re the real experts.
- Look for alternative sights and attractions. Most destinations have a handful of big-name attractions; Paris has the Eiffel Tower, Rome the Colosseum and Barcelona the Sagrada Familia. Whilst these are all worthy of a visit, the main tourist areas often mean huge queues and pricey tickets. Have a look online for alternate attractions, not only will you save some money, you’ll also have some pretty unique photos at the end of your trip.
