There’s no getting away from it – summer holidays are expensive especially with kids in tow. Even if you get a great deal on your package holiday there is still spending money to think of and the cost of living in another country for a couple of weeks. But there are ways to save money before you go and whilst you are away. All it takes is a little ingenious planning.
1. Get Frugal With Your Flights
If you are travelling abroad, flights can take a huge chunk out of your holiday budget. The good news is that even during the summer holidays and other peak times, it is still possible to get a better deal on your flights. If you have the luxury of travelling during off peak times, you’ll make even bigger savings.
Choosing unpopular times and days for example can net you some good deals. Usually Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday can be the cheaper days to travel. Take a look at your smaller local airport too to see if they fly to your chosen destination. Many smaller airports are adding to their flight destinations and could be a cheaper option especially if you don’t need to pay for parking.
