How To Save Money On Travel

In this guide, we share 52 of our top money saving travel tips, to help you save up for your dream vacation and also make sure you don’t overspend on the road.

Be Flexible with Your Flight Dates

If possible, give yourself the best chance to capture any of the cheap flights when the prices fluctuate by searching a couple of days, or even weeks, either side of your preferred departure date.

Adjust Your Times for Flying

Flying at unpopular hours, such as the red-eye or early in the AM increases your chance of getting discounted flights.

Fly on a Midweek Day

When it comes to finding cheap flights, we find that Tuesdays and Wednesdays are usually the cheapest times to fly. Try and avoid flying over holiday periods as this is always expensive.

Check for Family Deals

Always ask about discounted rates, free meals for children, and an upgrade at check in – they can only say no.

Do a Home Exchange

The home exchange strategy is possibly best for families or retired people who are looking to base themselves in another country or state for an agreed period of time. Just like the name suggests, you stay in their house whilst they stay in yours.
