Limited Cash Doesn’t Need To Ruin Your Vacation!
You need a holiday? Don’t we all? You’re a bit short of cash – it needn’t be a problem but like so many things in life the secret is in the planning.
Here are a few planning tips that can help you get your dream vacation on a low budget:
Work it All Out in Advance- Be honest with yourselves and work out how much you can find to spend on your holiday. Then start thinking about where you want to go and when. You must allow sufficient funds for transport, for food, for somewhere to stay and for entertainment. Also don’t forget the cost of travel insurance (shop around for that!) and allow extra money for emergencies nonetheless.
Early Bird Catches the Bargains- The earlier you book your vacation, the better the chance of getting the very best deals from airlines and from hotels. There are many sites on the net where you can get bargain rates but not have to pay until just before you travel. (You could take the opposite course of action and go for last minute bargains but you risk going somewhere you don’t really want at dates and times which really don’t suit.)
Travel Off Season- Obviously if you have kids at school this may not (or should not) be an option. Nonetheless the fact remains that travel prices are much lower at non-peak times and holidays and summer are the most expensive.
Travel Light- If you could fly with just a backpack and avoid checking your cases in, you can save a lot with some airlines. Whatever you do don’t be overweight. Take fewer clothes and be prepared to use a travel wash instead of bringing home loads of dirty washing.
Low Cost Destinations- You might consider a camping holiday or a youth hostel – you might even have friends who would be glad to welcome you – perhaps in exchange for a return visit next year.
