How to bag a bud­get hol­i­day

Daily Record - - WOMAN -

IT’S EASY to feel gloomy as fes­tive fun be­comes a dis­tant mem­ory.

But with tour op­er­a­tors and air­lines vy­ing for busi­ness, it’s a good time to cheer your­self up by book­ing a break.

Based on re­search by hol­i­day com­par­i­son site Trav­el­su­per­mar­ket. com, these are the top tips to fol­low. If you’re plan­ning a short-haul UK sea­side pack­age hol­i­day, it makes sense to go early in the sea­son. Most prop­er­ties will be open by May and there will be fewer crowds. De­part­ing on a hol­i­day pack­age or flight on a Tues­day will of­ten give you the best prices, as de­mand for flights out of the UK tends to be low­est on this day. Re­search sug­gests May, June and Septem­ber are the best value months for tak­ing breaks fur­ther afield, and there are of­ten some great bar­gains to be found. Ac­cord­ing to Travel Su­per­mar­ket, June is the cheap­est time to book a hol­i­day to Orlando, for ex­am­ple. Don’t wait to book for get­aways at Easter and the two bank hol­i­days in May. Prices will only go up, so the ear­lier you snap up those dates, the less you’ll have to stump up.
