Making Comparisons Between Holiday Offers:

The first thing to do is to visit any travel websites that are offering the destination you want to visit, and check what their approximate costs are going to be for airfares, accommodations, and local tours.

Next Step:  Have a look at some of the holiday activities at the destination, hotel, or resort, and whether they appeal to you, and if they are family orientated if you want to take the family along.

If you just want a warm beach holiday to lounge around in the sun and swim, then there are some absolutely stunning beach locations in the Caribbean to choose from, and at popular destinations like Greece, Turkey, Spain, and Mexico.

For sightseeing and history buffs, look at historical places to visit like Greece, Italy, London, France, Spain, and Egypt for some examples.

Make sure you take into consideration all the little things like hotel cover charges, the airfare with or without stopovers, car rentals, visiting local attractions and sights, restaurants, food, snacks, cocktails, and gasoline.

Once you have a good idea of what you want to spend on each part of your trip, you can begin doing some comparisons for the best deals for each option.

Budget Travel Tips: Prioritizing  Your Options.

You can save costs  on your holidays and travel by prioritizing the parts of your experience which are more important.

For example, if you are content to choose a 4-star hotel instead of staying in a luxury 5-star hotel, there is naturally a huge difference in the prices.

(3-star hotels for example, can often surprise you as many strive to achieve a higher ranking and status).

Other Savings…

a) For local travelling where you need transport, choose a smaller rental car rather than an SUV which will save you a lot of money on rental fees and insurance, plus these which often come with mileage restrictions as well as on gas.

b) For adventure, experiences, look up prepaid  guided tours or  where there are travel club deals which features discounts for members in all major cities for the avid sightseer! For example, if you are visiting Disneyland there are great deals on cards and vouchers to save money on readily available.

Bed and Breakfast, Bed and Dinner or Air BNB:

Look around for hotels and resorts that offer meals included in their accommodation prices, as these will save you on food costs; and look for travel club, or tour and sightseeing experience  cards, as these will save you money on activities at your holiday destination.

  • Two good meals a day with snacks in between on holiday is always sufficient while travelling on holidays.

Next Step:

There are some travel clubs are definitely worth joining, as they offer you huge discounts on accommodation, while the new travel adventure cards for  some of these clubs are superb for holiday activities for the whole family. (*Do some research online to find what there are available in travel clubs)
