Save Money On Cheap Winter Holidays
When you want to escape the British weather without it costing too much, some canny holiday shopping is in order. And the good news is, there are many ways you can save money on cheap winter holidays. Here’s our top five:
The cheapest holidays are in early seasonYou can get incredible discounts on holidays when you book out of season. From mid-October to mid-December is the best time for winter holidays and from March until June for earlier in the year. Booking a holiday just after new year can yield excellent deals too. With clement weather in southern Europe and further afield, you can find cheap holidays in the sun any time of year. Furthermore, going on holiday out of season also means tour operators offer cheaper trips when you get to your destination.
Go All-InclusiveFood and drink are one of the heaviest expenses at home and abroad, so if you want to save money on your next holiday, go all-inclusive. The upfront costs may feel like you are paying more at the time, but you feel the benefit when you return home. If you work out an average cost of at least £20 a day per person for food, plus the cost of the hotel, and you will probably find the all-inclusive holidays are a lot cheaper than standard holiday bookings. Especially if you plan on drinking alcohol whilst you’re away. The drink bumps up the average daily cost dramatically.
Self-catering or B&BIf you really want to budget on your next holiday, self-catering or B&B are your best options to cut down on food expenses. You will always find a supermarket or corner shop where you can stock up on food and drink. If you embrace packed lunches whilst out and about and cook your own meals in the evening, you will easily save money you can spend on tours and other activities. Cheap beer and wine also save you throwing cash away in bars every night.
Leave it until the very last minute before bookingCheap holiday bookings are time-sensitive and because hotels and travel agents don’t want to risk losing out altogether, they are prepared to practically give away cheap holidays. If you’re packed and ready to go immediately, and you don’t really mind where you go, you can make an absolute killing on cheap holidays by leaving it until the very last minute.
Haggle with confidenceThe travel industry is highly competitive and because hotels and agencies are desperate to fill spaces, confident negotiators will be rewarded with deals. Don’t be afraid to play companies off against each other. When negotiating with a travel agent tell them the price you have been quoted with another firm and ask them if they can get you a better holiday deal. The same rule applies to hotels.
