How to Save Money on Planning and Booking Easter Holidays
When money is tight its tempting to think about cutting back on holidays, sometimes eliminating them completely. That’s always a personal decision; however it is not always necessary. There are many ways that you can still have that relaxing adventure without spending too much money.
The Internet has made it easier than ever to find great deals on holidays and trips. With a little research using online resources, you can reduce by 20% or more your cost for air travel, a cruise, a hotel, meals, and more.
One simple way to get a huge reduction is to travel during the ‘off season’. ( Before or after the Easter break) This is the time of year when fewer people take holidays. It generally runs from late November to early March for trips in the Northern Hemisphere and when school terms are operating in Australia.
If you dont mind the cold, travelling to the northern hemisphere between November and March, can not only be cheaper but actually have fascinating new sights. If you prefer a warmer climate, you can still travel to Greece, Spain, and many other parts of the globe and still get a cheaper price on airfare and accommodations.
Holidays in Australia are cheaper during school terms. School holidays are a peak time for vacations and prices can double.
Apart from timing your trip, there are other creative ways to reduce holiday expenses and still enjoy yourself.
Keep an eye out for less popular destinations. There are dozens of lesser-known spots around Australia and the world that offer hotel and other expenses at a discount to attract tourists. Instead of a trip to Sydney where hotels run $200 a night or more, you can see lots of interesting things in many of the smaller towns.
Do some research, be flexible, and look for both times and places that are not those that most people choose. Supply and demand can work in your favour to save big on a big holiday. Then, when you come home, you’ll still have money left over for those short, local trips.
