Finding the money to book a family holiday abroad can be hard with all the other usual outgoings normal family life has so when you’re booking you want to make sure you get the best deal you can. Here are some ways you can save money on your family holiday.
Money saving tips for booking a family holiday #1 – Set a budget.
This may be really obvious but setting yourself a budget is a really helpful way to save money. Make sure you filter the holidays so you only see the ones in your budget because it’s so easy to get carried away looking at hotels outside of your budget and comparing them to the cheaper places.
Money saving tips for booking a family holiday #2 – Comparison sites.
Comparison sites are the best thing to come to the internet. You can save money on nearly everything if you take the time to look (so why wouldn’t you?) I also found the exact same holiday cheaper on Tui compared to First choice so it’s worth checking!
Money saving tips for booking a family holiday #3 – Cash back.
After all my comparing and looking around I found the perfect holiday so then I headed to Quidco (referral code where we both get £10) and checked to see if it had a cash back offer for the site and it did! A bonus of about £30 for nothing. The cash back rates are different depending on where you book from and how much you’re paying but it’s better than nothing. There are loads of different cashback sites and they all have different sites they work with.
Money saving tips for booking a family holiday #4 – Free child places.
If your little one is under 2 then they go free anyway so this wouldn’t apply to you but if you have older kids then the free child places can be a really good way to save money. With our upcoming holiday both kids work out free with the free child places and R being under 2!
Money saving tips for booking a family holiday #5 – Loyalty points vouchers.
I’m terrible at using my clubcard points and always forget to get them when I go into the shops but if you are good at collecting them then they can come in handy when booking holidays. If you’re shopping anyways and the points are there then you can use them at 3 x their worth.
I hope these tips help you save money the next time you’re booking a holiday, make sure you let us know how much you save!
