Boxing Day travel shopping tips
- Be flexible. The cheapest flights are often only available during the off-season, far in advance, or on undesirable days of the week. If you’re flexible with your dates, you’ll have a better chance of bagging the best bargain.
- Go anywhere. If you have a particular destination in mind, you might be out of luck with Boxing Day sales. If you’ve got a few places in mind where you’d like to visit, you’re less likely to be disappointed when the sales are released.
- Don’t be brand dependent. Keep your options open when it comes to which hotel chain you stay at and which airline you fly. Not all sales will be the same, and you might be able to get a better price on an alternate airline and a cheaper rate at a different hotel.
