For a winter trip- why not go against the norm and book a location in a cooler climate. During the winter season, tourists head further north to avoid the brisk chill; but all the deals are hidden in off-peak tourist locations.
Visiting regional areas is the perfect way to save your cash. Not only are you escaping the city prices on food and accommodation- but activities generally cost a fair amount less in regional locations.
An overlooked option- booking a cruise can be an alternative way of booking budget-friendly accommodation. Cruise brands often advertise deals and packages that’ll help you save in the long run.
If choosing to fly, various deals are offered through third party travel agencies. Car insurance, holiday accommodation packages, discounted tours and activities are all offered on their websites and are easy to access to help with your saving.
If you want to save, indulge in a weekend getaway. If craving a change in scenery, visit a nearby town for a relaxing holiday. You won’t have to take off any time for work and won’t be spending thousands of dollars in accomodation.
An easy way to spend less money, is going somewhere you can’t spend it. Options like hiking and camping are an excellent way to save.
If the option is available, camping is a great alternative to save your dosh. Rather than opting for a cabin, pitch a tent and get back to nature.
