Winter is in full swing, but it's time to book your summer vacation! And no, we're not mistaken. After all, booking in advance is one of the "tricks" of how to save money when planning a trip!
Travel experts have shared their tips and tricks on how to have a good time without overpaying. Read more about it in My London.
Booking in advance
This trend has remained popular among travelers for several years in a row. And here's why: the offers are so favorable, even the "hot deals" will not be cheaper! Also, when you book early, you have a huge selection of hotels, resorts, cruises, and different types of recreation. But if you book a few weeks before departure, most are already full.
Explore different options
Tony Andrews, director of Cruise.co.uk, explained what helps to reduce costs on the example of a cruise vacation. According to him, the type of cabin chosen can also affect the price.
"If the sea view is not important because the main purpose of your cabin is to sleep in it, choose an inside cabin or a cabin with a closed view, as this will significantly reduce the price," Andrews said.
It's the same with vacationing elsewhere. It all depends on your priorities and the purpose for which you are traveling. Therefore, explore different options and available offers from resorts.
Avoid peak times
Peak seasons are different for each destination. Study this issue in detail before you go on a trip. As a rule, prices for accommodation, food, and other services are usually higher at this time. And besides, there are queues and crowds at attractions.
You can often find deals on similar destinations without the crowds. Consider choosing different dates or alternative airports and locations.
"Consumers can find some great vacation deals if they try something new, especially if an operator has just added a new destination to their program," says the team at online travel company Travelzoo.
Take a vacation with family or friends
This is a great opportunity to spend time together and save money. Although large accommodations may seem expensive at first glance, families who share the costs and responsibilities say that such a vacation is much better.
Choose underrated travel destinations
Popular destinations are usually always more expensive. That's why we recommend choosing places that many tourists may not know about, but they are just as good as expensive resorts. And if you don't know where to go, TravelWise has identified the top ten destinations that don't cost all the money in the world.
Don't rent a car
We recommend using public transportation. Why: The cost of renting a car is high, especially in summer. Instead, we recommend taking a taxi or using a shuttle service from the airport, if such a service is available. And from the hotel, you can reach the sights on foot or by bicycle or scooter. This will help you explore the area better and enjoy its beauty.
