Cheap flights and Money Saving Travel Tips

Holidays can be expensive but they are usually something that we all feel we need after a busy few months at home or at work. While package holidays may initially seem like a fantastic deal once you add on some of the extras that you really do need to give you that perfect holiday even if you manage to find cheap flights, you may find that the costs involved are rapidly increasing. With some advance planning you may be able to have that holiday of your dreams for much less than you originally thought. Here are some top tips to help you stay ahead of the game and hopefully save yourself some money on the family holiday.

Stock up on sun cream – Most of us know that we are going to go on holiday at least a few months in advance and by waiting until sales start or until sun cream is out of season it may be possible to get a bargain or two. Looking online may help you to find some wonderful deals and as many of these products last for a couple of years if unopened you can stock up while cheap to save some money.

Check out travel insurance – If you are going to be taking more than one trip or travel as a large family or group of friends then it may be worth looking in to group bookings and special offers. If you are going to be travelling more than once a year then consider looking in to annual travel insurance which can often work out cheaper than two
single trip covers.

Ditch the mobile while abroad – Calling home while abroad can be expensive, sometimes with costs in excess of £1.50 per minute, so considering leaving you mobile phone at home or just turning it on to check if there have been any urgent messages that cannot wait until you return home. You may even be able to purchase a sim card in the country that you are visiting to make some cheaper calls.

Cancel the inflight meal – If you are going to be travelling for a short period of time or never end up eating the in flight meal then considering cancelling it completely. This can save you up to £15 per person per way just by not having a meal that is generally not very nice anyway. With the money that you save you can either eat before you leave home or purchase something at the airport.

Pack the essentials only – As many airlines will charge you for checking in bags considering travelling with less suitcases or even none if possible. By packing one suitcase per two people you should be able to bring all of the items that you need while still saving money on the check in baggage costs.

Buy your parking ticket before you arrive – If you are going to be driving to the airport then look online in advance for parking tickets and the current prices. You can usually save quite a large amount by ensuring that you shop around and book in advance. Many airport parking areas charge more money to customers that arrive on the day and use the ticket machines on site.

Think about your pets – Rather than having your cats or dogs booking in to a kennels consider asking a friend if they could visit to feed your animals. That way you know that someone reliable and trustworthy is going to be coming in to your home and looking after your animals in their natural surroundings.

There are so many ways that you can save money on your next holiday by just planning ahead and shopping around for the best deals. Going on a holiday need not add hundreds of pounds of extras on to your budget and it really is possible to save hundreds of pounds just by being prepared.
