Travel tips

Booking flights

Decide on what time of year to travel. Expect to pay more during the holiday seasons. Consider travelling during off-peak seasons, this will save you a fortune and it will be less crowded. If you’re feeling adventurous, check out last minute deals were you can get amazing packages and flights for a bargain.




If you have friends or family living near your holiday destination, then take advantage if you can. If you would like to meet and socialise with like minded people on your travels consider booking a hostel, couch surfing, camping or air B&B’s. These websites not only offer budget accommodation, but it’s also a great way to mix with the local people. Another option to consider is house swapping, were you can exchange your house with another house owner for a period of time.


Eating/ Dining out


If you’re accommodation provides kitchen facilities, make the most of it and cook. You can also request a fridge from some hotels. This will save you a fortune in the long run. You should also take advantage of free breakfasts from hotels, motels and B&B’s. If you fancy dining out, opt to eat a large lunch instead of a dinner. It is generally much cheaper and you can also save the leftovers for your dinner later. You can also cut back by buying breakfast, lunch and snacks from the local supermarket. Be aware that the tourist hot spots are far more expensive then any where else. Research food deals available in the area, coupons and vouchers.




Transportation is definitely one of the most expensive aspects of travelling. When it comes to using trains or car rental services, it’s important to note, that you can get better value for money by booking your tickets online in advance. Walk, cycle or take public transport is a cheap, fun and great way of discovering places.
