[SP] Holiday deals and discounts

By on July 22, 2013


When it comes to finding a great holiday deal, there are plenty of ways to grab a great value summer scorcher or a winter warmer without breaking the bank.

A last minute holiday booking is one of them. Last minute holidays have long been the preferred method of many a bargain hunter, and it’s not hard to see why. Late deals can apply to any package holiday – from low-cost apartment breaks and beach holidays right up to five-star getaways with all the luxury trimmings. It’s the same holiday, just cheaper – and the reason why it’s cheaper is simply because the tour operator wants to attract those last few bookings rather than let it go unsold.The best way to find a great value last minute holiday is to be as flexible as possible. Try to vary your departure dates and where possible, search for departures outside of school or public holidays as this is when holidays are usually at their cheapest. Furthermore, look for different local resorts or consider a different destination to the one you would usually go for. You might find a much better deal and who knows, you might also find a new favourite getaway.

Late deals aside, another way to find a low-cost holiday is to book as far in advance as possible. When you book early, you’ll be privy to early bird deals on holidays departing six, nine or even 12 months in advance, plus when you book early you’ll usually get the chance to pay off your booking in instalments. Of course you’ll also have the added benefit of extra time to save some spending money – meaning you’ll have plenty to play with once you get there.

Whether you choose to book early or go late, and whatever type of holiday you opt for, there are plenty of great bargains to be had. Which one will you choose?
