How to bag a budget holiday
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.
