Are you trying to plan your vacation this year, but are finding that you just cannot afford the vacation you want?
Gas prices have the travel industry raising prices and charging for extra luggage. You can still get cheap travel packages, but you have to know how to plan your vacation to do so. Here is how.
First, throw your current plan out the window. Once you have seen it fly away in the wind and you know for sure that it is gone, then you can move on.
Your current plan was not going to get you the vacation you wanted for the price you wanted anyway or you would not be reading this article.
Now, we can start planning. The biggest asset you need in your plan is a spontaneous spirit.
Depending on when you were planning on taking your vacation and how much notice you have to give your employer to get your vacation time will determine how spontaneous you really can be. Why do you need to be so spontaneous?
The obvious answer is to not holiday outside of the UK. Booking a holiday cottage is simple and easy, it means that you don’t have to change currency and there are many more savings to be made.
With the weather not always on our side, to keep the costs down you must plan ahead.
The idea to book home has many benefits.
No airport transfers to pay for can save the cost of a week’s food, or the cash be put towards a romantic meals out on a holiday.
No travel insurance to purchase, although cancellation insurance etc are still recommended.
One of the biggest savings is not having to exchange cash for a foreign currency. Costly travellers cheques or going to the exchange bureau for a wad of cash can quickly crumble away money, and you never really know how much to take.
Take too much and you’re left with a pile of money to change back. Not only are you hit with commission, but also the lower exchange rate. So do you keep a few hundred unchanged for your future holidays – and lose out on that cash in the bank?
So is the answer just to book a English holiday cottage and have done with it? Choose with care and you can have a perfect cottage, with excellent facilities in a beautiful region of the UK.
Then all that you have to do is to ensure that you plan ahead a little and keep the prices down when you are on holiday.
With a small amount of thought, the cash you have saved booking and not changing currencies will go a long way towards the costs of the holiday whilst you are actually in the holiday cottage. Holidaying in a UK holiday cottage can be a lot less expensive than holidaying abroad, just be certain that you put a little bit of thought into the process first.
Holidaying within the UK really can save you a lot of money. Sort yourself out with a cottage, be on the look out for cheap entry to local attractions and surprise yourself about holidaying in the UK.
