Shopping around for the cheapest flights and deciding which is the best cheap airline is always a wise move – maybe try looking to see if you can fly to your destination from a different airport as this can work out much cheaper. If you have the luxury of flexible dates, flying during the week can be a great deal cheaper than flying over weekends.

Everyone wants to stay in a fabulous hotel when they’re on holiday, but if you want to be spending your holiday exploring, swimming, lying on the beach and experiencing the local culture, a cheaper hotel option can be just as good. This way you can use the money you save on day trips, food, cocktails and souvenirs!

One thing you don’t want to scrimp on is your airport transfer. Booking this in advance is highly advisable, local taxis can be very expensive and not always trustworthy!

All-inclusive deals are often extremely tempting, a holiday where you don’t have to worry about the extra expense of food and drink as they are included in the price of your hotel – what more could you want? All-inclusive holidays do tend to be slightly more expensive than half board or self catering though, and you do have to ask yourself if it is worth the difference. Sampling the local cuisine can be one of the highlights of a holiday, and you don’t want to feel like you are missing out if you have opted for an all-inclusive package. When you arrive at your destination, ask around for the best spots to eat and try and avoid the places that seem to have been set up exclusively for tourists, as they tend to work out more expensive.

Finding a cheap airline, with flights that work for you is a huge weight off your mind when it comes to booking a holiday, especially when there aren’t hidden costs such as luggage and check-in fees and you can see exactly what you are paying for. Saving on accommodation and flights means that you’ll have some extra cash to be able to really treat yourself when you step off the plane!
