How to Save Money on Holidays
- Bring toys – Keep your kids behave by bringing small toys, books or gadgets to keep them busy. This way, there is no need for you to stop by at a convenience store to buy overpriced toys.
- Snacks & Drinks – Pack bread, chips, sandwich, and ready to eat foods. You don’t need to bring too much but you can save money by at least bringing snacks. Candies and energy bars cost higher if bought from convenience stores.
- Charger – Bring power banks, chargers, connectors so you don’t have to pay extra for charging fees. You can also bring extra batteries if you have.
- Sanitary kits – Vendo machines are everywhere. Save money by bringing your own sanitary napkin, tissue, etc. Bring wipes, sanitizers to avoid mess.
- Drinks – Bring soft bottled water so you can refill it from taps. You may also want to pack fruit juices, sodas, milk or bottled water to keep you hydrated.
- Travel tour offers – Go online and see what the latest travel offers are. Ticket price may change depending on the season.
- Hotel and Restaurant – Check the rates and freebies. Is there a free WiFi, or free breakfast? Some hotel packages may offer free spa and other freebies so don’t be afraid to ask of what’s included in the package. Remember that your goal is to save money. You can take advantage of the hotel’s amenities without paying extra charges.
- Travel with other relatives – The more the merrier. Travelling with your other relatives or with another family may have an advantage. This is ideal if you prefer to stay in a house for rent. The fee is fixed so the more relatives you bring the rate becomes smaller because you divide it per head.
Travelling with your family is not so expensive at all if you learn how to consider other cheap options. You can save money by following the above simple steps. Travelling is no longer a form of luxury these days so it is also a great way to economise with your family while you’re all on holidays.
