Tips For A Budget Holiday

When we go away we always try to do it as cheap as possible and quite often it's so much cheaper to do it on your own. I always have people asking me how I afford to go away so often but there are little tricks on how to go on a budget break, and this is how:-

Hotels

We always book way in advance and we go to either Premier Inn or Travelodge if we are holidaying in the UK, and with Travelodge having the option of Super rooms now, you can get an almost executive stay. We have been known to stay in youth hostels before because you can stay there for around £40 - £60 for a private family room, often cheaper than a hotel, especially in the heart of a major city. To get a good price on a hotel, you will need to book in advance, quite often a few months. We always stay at a Premier Inn next to Chessington World Of Adventures as its 75% cheaper per night than the official Chessington Hotel. We don't get the View of the Safari animals but we can see them when we are in the park anyway. Tilly thinks that every hotel is a holiday. Another Tip for a cheap hotel if you leave it till last minute is to look on hotel websites and pick a mystery hotel. Sometimes you can get a Five-star Hotel for less than £40. In the past I have even mystery shopped hotels and got the whole lot for free :)
