Going on holiday is expensive: planes are expensive, hotels are expensive, renting a car is expensive the list goes on. How to save money then? Well, luckily for you (that’s if you live in Britain), then you live in an extremely beautiful and varied country.
There are a million and one things to do on these Isles and so why not save money, enjoy Britain, and learn about your home nation at the same time. Obviously, you could just as easily spend the same about of money travelling at home as you do abroad, so you have to be smart. Nonetheless, traveling at home affords you more opportunities to save money than jetting off to the Caribbean.
Start with Hotels Deals
Luckily there are a wealth of websites on the internet that specialise in finding you deals on hotels. These sites are excellent for finding great hotels at affordable prices I’m sure you’ve all seen the adverts and of course there’s no better place to start than our England holiday guide. Now with these hotels you can spend half as much as you would abroad and they are usually pretty classy hotels with all the information you need on the sites, plus reviews from previous guests. Busy cities like Edinburgh have many hotels and they want to fill up their rooms as much as possible and that is why they use these hotel sites. It fills up the rooms quickly and they make the profit. Consider it.
Use Your Own Car
You don’t have to spend lots of money on renting a car, you already have one. Yes, you will have to pay for petrol, but it still works out cheaper than renting. You might also be wondering how would I park in a city like London to see the sites when there’s little parking, and what parking there is, is so expensive? There are always ways around this, for example you could utilise YourParkingSpace.co.uk to find a homeowner willing to rent out their driveway. There are also the local Park and Ride services and, of course, the best option would be to choose a centrally-based hotel that has its own parking.
A lot of the money you spend on holiday is at restaurants. It’s quite difficult to find vouchers and coupons for restaurant deals in Greece, however not so in Britain. We have a wealth of brilliant websites, VoucherCodes.co.uk is the market leader, and if you’re savvy on the internet you can find excellent deals for you and the whole family at well-known chain restaurants and independent eateries. See what you can find online because you will be shocked by the amount of money you can save.
As with everything, when you are trying to save money, you have to shop around. Don’t settle for the first deal you come across, make sure you look at a good selection of sites and companies before making up your mind. You might find what you think is an excellent deal and then find out it can be gotten a lot cheaper somewhere else.
That’s it from me. Holidaying at home is not only cheaper than holidaying abroad, but it can also be a lot more enjoyable, especially if you get the weather for it, and although we like to complain we do get good weather throughout the summer we should stop being so grouchy.
