Family holidays can be very expensive especially with having to travel out of term time and when it’s more than just you and your partner jetting off. That doesn’t mean you have to avoid holidays until your little ones have left home, these tips should help cut the cost of your holiday to make your family getaway more wallet-friendly.
Research and Compare
Don’t just book the first holiday you see, take your time to research different destinations, hotels, holiday companies and remember to compare, compare, compare. It may take time but it’ll be worth it in the long run when you save £ that can be spent when you’re there on meals out and activities.
Set a budgetIt may be obvious but make sure you set a budget. The cost of a family holiday can get out of hand and we know how tempting it can be when you start dreaming about taking your little ones away to blow a lot of money. Your kids will love anything you book so don’t feel the need to spend more than you can afford. Set a budget that’s affordable for you and then start browsing for holidays in that price range.
Be flexible on destinationHaving to book out of term time can really hike prices up, it’s really frustrating. With not being able to be flexible on date, try and be flexible on destination.
