Travel on the cheap with the Family

16 November 2011

Travelling with the whole family is a wonderful experience; however this may be a problem when you take your pocket into consideration.  Here are few tips on how not to ‘break the bank’ when planning that awesome family vacation.

  • Opt for all inclusive packages, that way food and drinks will be included in your quoted price.  Another advantage of an all inclusive package is that children under a certain age either get a discount or travel for free.
  • Cruise holidays tend work out cheaper too.  Meals & some drinks are free or have been included in the price for the cruise.  On a cruise you need not worry about entertainment, well known cruise lines such as; Costa Cruises, Royal Caribbean Cruises and MSC Cruises  amongst others offer lots of onboard entertainment.
  • If you’re going overseas to see friends or family give them a call to stay with them.  You’ll save mega moola on accommodation.  Once that is sorted, chat to your travel agent about finding the best ona flights to your holiday destination.
  • Try by all means to travel during the low shoulder seasons; you are most likely to score a great deal on not only your flights, but also accommodation.
  • Book your travela few months in advance, this will help too;
    • Give  you a variety of choice when selecting airline seats
    • Make big savings on both flights & accommodation
