You don’t always need to compromise on the best. In this guide we’re offering a few hints, tips and life-hacks for treating yourself to the best while spending less.
Go Early or Late
Being flexible is often the secret to enjoying luxury for less. If you plan a break a long time in advance you can often take advantage of cheaper travel fares. Likewise, if you leave it to the last minute, you can take advantage of late deals on some amazing escapes. It’s a gamble but one that can often pay off!
Head off the Beaten Track
We all know the holiday hot-spots, but head a little further off the beaten track and you can escape the crowds, enjoy unspoiled scenery and often take advantage of better prices for fantastic food and drink. These characterful places don’t just offer better value; unique adventures in rarely explored places allow plenty of bragging rights and selfie spots too!
Our large properties don’t just offer some of our most incredible escapes – with mansions, manor houses, scenic villas and more – but they can often work out incredibly cheap too. Going away with a big group allows you to take advantage of some fantastic prices ‘per-person, per-night’. Enjoy hot tubs, private pools, home cinemas and all kinds of quirky features, often at far cheaper prices than hotel rooms.
Enjoy Free Activities
While it’s entirely possible to spend your way to a smile, often the best, and most memorable, holiday activities can be enjoyed at no additional cost. Some of the UK’s best museums and galleries can be explored without spending a penny. Likewise, it costs nothing to head out to some of our most beautiful beaches or enjoy admiring the most eye-watering vistas.
The high street may be taking advantage of the interest in local produce, but you can enjoy the ultimate in slow-food by heading out and shopping local. The freshest ingredients, finest food and lowest prices often await. And what’s more, your money will be going straight to the local economy.
Do Your Homework
You can often save lots of money if you’re savvy and do your research. Booking attractions and activities online can offer some serious savings. Likewise, there are all kinds of vouchers available online, from places to go and things to see, shopping, food and drink plus much more. Look at guest reviews and speak to your holiday host to find a few unique recommendations too.
