1. Save On Flights
2. Find Bargain Accommodation
There are many fantastic deals to be had on sites like lastminute.com, Trivago and Trip Advisor. Whether you're looking to get a discounted rate on a four or five star hotel, or need help finding the cheapest options possible, these have you covered.
3. Fly Indirect
Sometimes time is less important than money. If that's the case it can you may want to consider an indirect flight. This doesn't always work out cheaper but it's worth a look. And who says you can't do some sight-seeing on the way? It's all about the journey after all!
4. Picnics On A Plane
There are no rules against taking food onto the plane, and you won't exactly be missing out on much considering the reputation of airborne cuisine.
5. Wear Your Stuff
With many airlines charging exorbitant amounts for the pleasure of hand luggage, why not simply wear it instead?
Do you really need a whole bag of stuff for your 2 hour flight? Maybe you do, but in some cases you probably don't. Be creative and take what you need on your person rather than paying for the privilege of overhead luggage.
6. Package Holidays
To some travellers the phrase package holiday is tantamount to blasphemy. You may relish the idea of planning every aspect of your trip, and that's fine - but it actually works out cheaper to go with package deals in many cases.
They aren't all your typical family trips to Benidorm either, if you look around you are likely to find a package deal that takes your fancy and comes in under budget.
7. Book Car Hire In Advance
If you know you need to hire a vehicle abroad then it will often pay to book it well in advance, not when you arrive. This has the added benefit of being able to reserve a suitable vehicle with the features you need (such as adequate seating, storage and extras like air con).
