Everyone needs a great holiday. And everyone knows that great accommodation is the key ingredient to a great holiday. But how do we do it on a budget? You think, surely we can’t afford to stay in a resort like Pool Resort (pictured), but you can!
Whether you’re saving to stay at an extravagant resort or you just want to get away on the cheap, Affordable Holidays is here to help.
So without further ado, we present to you, 10 ways to travel the Affordable way.
10. Enjoy home cooking and picnics
With a little more effort and a little less expenditure, home prepared meals can often be even more special than eating out.
Make your vacation a double date. Travel with your best mates. Make it a bonding experience with the family. Fill the car and divvy up the petrol costs.
8. Fly cheap.
Check out cheap domestic airfares on sites like http://www.jetstar.com or http://www.virginaustralia.com which offers happy hour rates for one hour a day. Also try to book your flights well in advance to save a little more.
7. Travel in low season.
Travel outside of Christmas and school holidays. This will also make your holiday more relaxing.
6. Avoid festivals.
Unless you’re attending the festival the best thing to do is avoid the area entirely, as most resorts will put their rates up because of the influx of visitors.
5. Eat more at lunch than dinner
A fancy lunch is usually less expensive than a fancy dinner. Eat a heavy breaky and lunch and a light dinner (plus it’s healthier).
4. Grab a map and walk
Almost every resort will have a free map of the area at reception that includes local attractions. If your not too far to your restaurant or attraction, go for a wander. And it’s a great chance to experience the place you’re visiting.
3. Enter competitions.
Affordable Holidays regularly runs competitions throughout the year to win stays at amazing locations and they occasionally include airfares.
