Holidays can make a hole in your wallet, but it can be prevented, at least in part. One way is the aforementioned last minute, when it is common to go on vacation with a 50% discount. But if you don't have a last minute option , there are a few ways to save.

Take the "less well-traveled paths"

Popular destinations know they are popular. For this, they can afford to raise prices without losing the interest of tourists. Therefore, in general, the more popular the destination, the more we pay for it. We recommend you to study where you plan to go and you will definitely find beaches, mountains, resorts, wellness, family camps, holiday cruises, holidays in nature or whatever your ideal vacation is. Don't jump straight past the large hotel resorts.

Travel in a group

Almost all hotels, historical monuments (for which admission is paid) and even today some restaurants offer group discounts. You can either join foreign tourists or arrange with family and friends and plan a great holiday. The groups do not have to be huge, it is often enough for a group of 10-15 people to get a significant discount.

Travel on atypical days

Airlines tend to have higher prices on weekends, as most people fly then. If you travel during the week, you will save money on the exact same ticket that would have a surcharge over the weekend.

Compare prices

There are a huge number of sites on the Internet today that offer you a great "travel solution", so there's not much reason to pay the full price for anything today. With a little flexibility, you can save euros every step of the way. Watch several discount portals at once, if you find a ticket on a page that is only an intermediary, then visit the page of the company whose ticket they sell. Usually the ticket will be a few euros cheaper.

Accommodation in exchange

Today you don't have to save on accommodation just by finding the cheapest. Why have only one room when you can have the whole house to yourself? Sites like HomeExchange.com allow you to sleep in someone's house while he sleeps in yours. In addition, you will be able to cook your own meals and skip the expensive restaurants.

Make a list of what you want to do on vacation.

One of the fastest ways to spend a lot of money on vacation is to come to town and go outside to find something to keep you entertained. There is a good chance that you will fall into expensive "tourist traps". Instead, spend some time before your vacation online, find out what you want to visit, see reviews of local restaurants and transportation options.If you have a list of things you want to catch on holiday and you know how much it costs in the area, it is much easier to make wiser decisions when spending money.


Find out when local attractions offer discounts.

If you want to visit museums, they tend to have days off (sometimes "museum night", when all museums in the city are free), restaurants can have days when children do not pay for food or local sights may have days when no entrance fee is paid. You don't have to pay the full price just because you're on vacation. If homeowners can have great prices, why not you? A great way to find out this information are city websites or local forums or blogs.

Student discounts

Almost every attraction offers student discounts, so make sure you don't forget your student card at home before your holiday!

Don't be afraid to ask family and friends.

We are not saying that you are a parasite and a breadwinner, but if you know that you travel thousands of kilometers by car on your holiday and your parents have a hybrid, electric car or simply pay less per kilometer than you, you can ask them to rent a car for your holiday. If you decide for this solution, be careful whether their insurance will apply to you, we recommend calling your insurance company and asking in advance.

If you are traveling through a city where your friend or family member is, do not be afraid to ask them to spend the night or pick them up from the airport or bus or train station. I often like to accept it and you will have a time together when you haven't seen each other for a long time.

Do lots of Research

All added up and underlined
Your best friend when planning a cheap holiday in advance is the internet.

The more time you have to plan, the better prices you will find . So maybe today you will start planning your summer vacation so that the next July or August does not have a hole in your wallet.
