A few little travel tips
I’ve been on my journey as a personal travel consultant for a little while now. As much as the world is a very big place and I don’t think I will ever stop learning about more about great destinations, I am also learning about how the holiday industry works outside of skiing. With this I am picking up on little things that being aware of can help save you money or make more exotic locations affordable for your next holiday.
Booking early can be to a great advantage. Providers like hotels and airlines have offers and pricing structured to influence people to behave the way they would like. So give them what they want and make the most of it. Being prepared and booking early means there are still cheaper seats available on the flights. You will be first to access offers like free child places and a wider option of room rates.
Although not a way to save money, booking early can allow you to spread the cost of your booking, so it doesn’t all hit in one go. I can package you holiday booking, which not only gives great financial protection, but means you can confirm with a small deposit and then spread the costs up until closer to your departure date.
Think about when you travel. If you can be flexible to travel midweek then flights can be noticeably cheaper. Paying attention to things like school inset days can give opportunities where school days might often get in the way. Being prepared to take flights at unsociable times as they are often cheaper. Most folk tend to travel towards the beginning of the holiday period, look at dates towards the end of the holidays, when there is less demand. Taking the indirect flight option. When traveling long haul being prepared to fly indirect can save you some cost. Even a short layover can make for a cheaper journey, but also become part of your holiday experience.
If you have your eyes on a luxury hotel, but the prospect of staying there for a week is a bit too much. Stay somewhere else for the start of your trip and have just a few nights of luxury at the end.
Pre book transfers when you can. These will most often be cheaper than taxis.
The easiest and of course most important way is to book with an expert like myself. My services are free, as paid for by the suppliers. I can do all the legwork and research to find the best options and when you have chosen all is packaged and protected under ATOL.
I can cater to all budgets and all types of travel, but it will always be tailored and personal to you. You just have to get in touch and let me know what you are looking for.
