Money saving tips for cheap family holidays
Make the most of out of school days
Going on holiday during the school holidays is always more expensive, but schools are cracking down on taking kids out of school in order to get a cheaper family holiday. Sometimes it’s worth having a chat with the Headteacher if your school frowns upon it.
As a compromise, you could take your child out of school for just a few days (at a time that’s less likely to harm your child’s education) and bolt that onto a weekend.
Save on train fares
You can make big savings on train fares if you know how – and travelling by train is far less stressful than driving. For starters, it’s definitely worth getting a Family Railcard (which will knock 33% off all your train fares). Check out our guide to getting cheap family rail tickets.
Or get the coach
You can get some real bargain coach fares on sites like Megabus – never pay more than £3 (plus 50p booking fee) if you book in advance. (If you have bad memories of coach travel, don’t be put off – the Megabus coaches are all comfy, modern and air-conditioned. Most even have free Wi-Fi!)
The more the merrier
Many holiday parks have accommodation that can cater for eight, 10 or even 12 people. Generally, the more people an apartment can take, the cheaper it works out per person. So why not consider hiring a larger apartment, caravan or trailer with family or friends and save money together? You can even look for Van Racking Solutions, which is great for when you have a trip and need to fit a lot of things in a small space.
