Cheaper Holidays

We understand how expensive holidays are becoming year after year yet most of us live for that yearly get away from our daily routines. Holiday experts like us can provide you with impartial advice on everything from where to go, when to go and how to get special extras out of the tour operators, resorts, spas and hotels- something you can’t get when you book it all yourself!

Many of us will still insist on taking a holiday regardless of whether we can afford it or not. According to our Facebook page question poll, the majority of holidaymakers will splash out on an all-inclusive board basis, with half board being close second. Room only packages were favoured the least which shows that holidaymakers are willing to spend the pounds.

Our experienced travel experts revealed that the average holiday can take more than four months of planning and the average holiday lasts up to 10 days. Holidays are becoming more important in our lives, perhaps now more than ever. That’s why we have put together a list of top 5 tips which explain how you can still have a luxurious, relaxing and enjoyable holiday without having to break the bank.

1. Timing your booking- If you are not flexible with your dates then book early. This will not only be cheaper but will also give you the chance to get some great early bird offers (and give you more time to look forward to it!). If you are flexible with your dates and destinations then you can book late and pick up unsold hotel places at very good prices.

2. Buy your travel insurance early- Not many people know this but your travel insurance covers you from the minute you purchase it, not from when you start your holiday. This means that you might be able to recover the cost of the trip if you have to cancel it due to any unforeseen reason or emergency. Make sure you check your policy first as each one varies.

3. Splash out on the whole package- Many of us are unaware that an all-inclusive package could be cheaper in the long run. Having your food and drinks already paid for leaves you the hassle of having to look for (and fork out!) on food and drinks when you get there.

4. Avoid traveling during peak times- If you can avoid it, book your holiday during term time when the kids are at school. Travel companies put their prices up during peak times like summer and Easter. Book your holiday outside of these times and you’ll be amazed at how much you can save. Also if weather is not an issue to you then you can travel to places off peak. Some destinations actually have very nice weather even in low season due to their own microclimate. Our holiday experts can help advise you on these places and the best times to visit.

5. Don’t be afraid to haggle- Even on websites you can pick up the phone, speak to a sales agent and haggle over the price. They probably won’t have more than 3-5% up their sleeve to play with but for a £3000 holiday that’s a £90 - £150 saving, which means a bit extra holiday spending money!

One final tip is to look at our holiday destinations and find a place that suits you! Then fill out your details in our enquiry form and we will be in touch to help you plan.
