Don’t Travel at the Weekend
The weekend is the most expensive time to travel. If you can avoid going away on a Saturday or Sunday, do. You may also find that Fridays are quite pricey too.

Enjoy a Few Days Out
In order to save money on accommodation, many people enjoy what is known as a “Stay-cation”. They stay at home instead of booking a hotel and they have trips out during the day. This can potentially work out quite a bit cheaper than a hotel or even staying in a caravan. Find out what’s happening in your area, are there any festivals taking place? What theme parks are local, are there any areas of interest nearby? Chances are you’ll find at least a few.
Book Far in Advance
Whether you decide to vacation in the UK or abroad you could save money by booking your vacation far in advance. Booking your hotel room and flights, for example, at least six months before your vacation can save you a lot of cash.
