Six tips for grabbing a bargain on a last-minute summer vacation
TERM time means travel time to some.
With the kids back to school, couples can take advantage of last-minute summer trips at the end of the season.
If you want to fly, make sure you get a good deal. . .
WHOLE PACKAGE: Always compare the prices of a package with the booking of separate flights and accommodation to make sure you don’t pay more.
Google Flights and Skyscanner are easy ways to compare flights, while the Expedia website offers an easy way to view packages.
IN CASE: Want to avoid lost baggage or extra baggage fees?
Buy it for £17.99.
LITTLE EXTRAS: Sign up to become an Expedia member and access lower prices, while members of hotels.com rewards program can get a free night after a certain number of reservations.
STAY AWAY: By staying off the beaten track, you can reduce costs.
SLEEP WELL: Opt for a Airbnb or self-catering accommodation may be what you usually choose, but sometimes it is worth comparing these prices with those of hotels.
For example, Lisbon in Portugal is a popular destination for couples at this time of year, but with such demand, some Airbnbs are much more expensive than newer hotels where add-ons such as some meals are included.
EARN YOUR REST: From booking stay to extras, use a cashback site to earn as you spend.
For example, purchase travel insurance with travelsupermarket.co.uk through quidco.com and earn up to 18% back.
And get up to 47% off select airport parking bookings via topcashback.co.uk.
