How To Enjoy Your Vacation While Still On A Tight Budget
Everybody deserves a break at some point in life, c’ mon after the hustling and shuffling office hours, we just need that few days or even weeks to cool off a little. Get away from work, and every other thing that saps our energy. However, not having enough savings for a vacay you duly deserve can be upsetting. Now, take a deep breath and read on; what if I tell you there are ways you can enjoy your vacation even when you are on a tight budget?
Check for budget-friendly IT fares
If your vacation involves using planes as means of transportation, you can check for budget-friendly IT fares; Inclusive tour (IT) fares are the arrangement which long-haul flights are sold as a package in combination with hotel accommodation or a hire car. It depends on where and when you book. However, you can get the fares for a cheaper price if you book the whole package and that includes the hotel instead of buying the flight alone.
Pick your dates wisely
One of the biggest mistakes you can make while planning your vacation is to go for vacations when there’s a huge rush. For instance, instead of traveling during the early days of school summer holidays, go for the latest possible dates like late August and the first week of September because that’s when you get awesome cheap prices than the rest of the vacation
period. Besides, most resorts, hotels, etc would be willing to give out cheap packages during the late days of vacation.
Another way to enjoy budget-friendly vacation especially when you going with your family is during October. Although, it is a bit tricky for weather in the Mediterranean, if you can afford the flight tickets, Florida, Morocco or Canaries.
Take advantage of price comparison websites
If you are looking for the best rates on travel insurance, car hire and package holidays, you can make use of price comparison websites however, these sites can be misleading in their headlines, offering catching prices but if you look carefully, they have stripped away as many extras like airlines who offer no additional comforts do to sell their services to you. So, if you are using price comparison websites, ensure you understand their pros and cons respectively and go with the one best suitable for you.
Check Wi-Fi costs
If your vacation does not include steering off the internet, then you must check how much
it will cost you for using WiFi. Although, significant numbers of hotels offer free coverage, you have to check before booking and not just assume it is free.
Bring your own food
If you really want to save cost, then you have to bring your own food especially when it is a family vacation; it is healthier and cheaper. However, you cannot take liquids through security, but you can bring empty bottles to fill with drinking water that’s if the airport provides it.
Stay by the beach
Private pools can take a chunk out of your pocket; why pay through your nose for something you can get way below the price and still enjoy a glorious view of nature? Book a villa near the beach instead and for a budget-friendly price.
Finally, vacation is all about having fun, relaxation, and creating fun memories. Don’t get worked up trying to get the best vacation for the lowest price possible. Whether you have the cash to spend around, or simply saving every cent you can, remember its vacation! Relax and have fun! Remember, the best things in life are free.
