Tips to spend less and get more out of your holiday

It might not cost you any annual leave, but it's hard to have a holiday without spending a cent, although camping can come very close. Take some tips for saving, and you can get more of a vacation for less.

  • Drive on the cheap. Unless you're walking, there are going to be some travel expenses. If you haven't already, it's worth considering how much it costs to rent a car without forgetting to add the discounts. You can get free upgrades, free rental days or simply flat discounts of 20% off, or more. The price tag you see on the rental car website isn't necessarily the price you have to pay.
  • Fly for less. Check for Easter weekend discounts and tips for flying cheaply to see if there are ways to save. The cardinal rule of cheap flights, however, is generally to book as soon as possible to keep costs down. To make it happen for less, you need to start planning sooner rather than later and lock down deals while you can.
  • Don't overspend on accommodation. Depending on where you're doing, you can get pretty reasonable accommodation for remarkably low prices. Remember to consider more than just the initial price per night though, and remember to think about what you'll be getting when you stay. A lot of the seemingly pricier stays offer free meals, freebies for kids and other additions. If you can take advantage of it, you might as well take full advantage.
  • Book online. There's a reason businesses are moving online. It's often quicker and easier to process online bookings and other arrangements, which lets them keep costs down. To make it worthwhile, you can often pay less simply by booking online. A lot of other discounts, are also only available online and won't even cross your path if you book over the phone.
