Tuck yourself into the perfect long weekend break.
One of the last weekends to make the most of the sunny summer weather, and one of the longest weekends of the year, Easter is the perfect excuse to get away. This year it falls from 30 March (Good Friday) to 2 April (Easter Monday).
You've got four full days to relax at a beach resort and soak up the sun, book into a chic apartment and explore a new city or unwind at a rainforest retreat. The options are pretty much endless and we've got an Easter hotel deal that'll suit just about any taste.
5 tips on how to get the best Easter hotel deal
- Go where the deals take you: Try not to be too set on a specific destination, but rather see where the best prices are available. If you're happy taking a "beach holiday", then you're more likely to find a great deal than specifically a "Byron Bay beach holiday".
- Be brand-flexible: While we all love collecting our free rewards nights and loyalty points, see which companies offer the best deal rather than if your preferred loyalty program is having a sale. It could help you save loads, and maybe even discover a new favourite hotel.
- Book as early as possible: Prices at hotels go up, up and up the closer to the stay date - especially over a long weekend. If you know you want to go away, booking sooner rather than later will award you with the best price.
- Look for extra savings offers: A lot of booking sites offer perks for joining their newsletter or getting a free membership. For example, TFE Hotels (which includes Travelodge, Rendezvous and Vibe) offer an extra 10% off for signing up and Oaks Hotels offers 10% for becoming a MyOaks member. Plus, the newsletters will include future discounts and information about the hotels.
