The costs of your holiday can add up quickly, particularly when you start looking at accommodation, food, drinks, flights and transfers all at once. One way that you can try to save money is through booking your flights cleverly. Here are some tips on how to do that.
Make sure to use flight comparison sites on the internet, and keep checking back over time. The timing of this is crucial, since flights need to be booked early if you need them to a specific place. If you’re happy to fly anywhere or sit anywhere, there may be some cheap last minute tickets, but early is best.
Make sure to watch out for any of the hidden extras that airlines sometimes throw at you. If there are extra costs for checking in luggage, try to pack everything you can into a large piece of hand luggage. Sometimes you have to pay extra for drinks and food on board, so take those whenever you can. Some airlines also automatically add travel insurance for you, so make sure that you’ve unticked that box because it can be costly, particularly if you have your own in the first place!
The final way to save on flights is to consider a package holiday. If you’re only planning a short break in the sun and want it to be quick and easy, this is the perfect way to go, particularly if you want to try to keep you’re spending under wraps, as it’s all included under the original price you pay.
