Everyone needs a holiday to escape from the stresses of everyday life, but in these difficult economic times it can be difficult to afford a holiday abroad, particularly if you have a family and not just one or two of you to take care of.
But fear not, you don’t have to have loads of money to be able to afford a trip away if you follow the points below. Get a great deal and you can be in the sunshine in no time!
Go All Inclusive
Many people turn their noses up at all inclusive holidays, but they are a great way to pay an up front fee and know that you don’t have to worry about incurring too many costs whilst you’re away. There are a range of fantastic all inclusive deals on the market, it’s just a matter of finding the one that suits you best and is within your budget.
Travel Insurance Deals
Many people think the way to make your holiday cheaper is to avoid travel insurance all together, but it’s a big risk than can result in you coming home with a large bill if things go wrong – not what you want if money’s tight. There a many great deals for holiday insurance cover available now, whether it is free with a bank account, promotions online or loyalty rewards. Do some research and you’ll find affordable travel insurance which saves you money in the short and long term in case something doesn’t go to plan.
Find Cheaper Accommodation on Arrival
Many people just plump for the accommodation options which are put in front of them, but if you’re prepared to hold out a little longer then you can find some fantastic deals on arrival. Obviously this creates a little bit of uncertainty and some work on arrival at your destination, but you’d be surprised how much accommodation in resorts isn’t well advertised and is sat waiting for people to turn up. As a result of that they offer great prices to get people in, which you can capitalise on and make big savings!
Go Out of Season
Holiday prices are obviously higher in peak season, so if you can manage to get away out of season then you will make great savings. The season will vary depending on where you’re going and what you’re doing. For example, if you’re heading on a golf holiday in Turkey then the season will probably be slightly different than the usual UK school holidays. Planning your trip this way will definitely make it easier on the purse strings…
