Holidays are meant to be a break from your own mini reality. They’re meant to be a time and place you can live another life with little to no responsibility, apart from getting back to the hotel before they shut the doors!
And because of that, booking a holiday should be the time you go all out to really take a sip of a lifestyle don't lead everyday.But unfortunately things cost money, and most of us are working with a strict budget.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t include a little bit of luxury on your holiday, and there’s plenty of neat tips and tricks to use to save money whilst you’re doing it. So here’s a couple for your perusal, and hopefully for you to put to good use.
Know Your Limits
This is mostly about what your flight budget is going to get you, and how far you could reasonably go on a long haul flight without blowing all of your budget; if you’re headed to Asia from America, you’re not going to get much bang for your buck when you arrive, and you’re just going to leave the trip exhausted (mentally, physically, and financially!).
So try to think a little more inland, and find out which countries have the best exchange
rates near you, and then head out to them. Don’t worry, there’s always going to be a luxury option when you arrive, so you’re never going to be missing out on the best quality.
It’s All About the Accommodation!
As we said above, there’s always a luxury room or suite out there for you to invest in, and you don’t need to waste half your holiday budget on it either. Just look at the Edinburgh apartments to rent for a good example; a few nights won’t cost you an arm or a leg, and you still get serviced rooms to make sure you don’t have to lift a finger!
So find a hotel that has a couple of stars to its name; Its much better than trying to fit yourself into the nearest hotel to the airport that’s cheap but has a few bad reviews, and live the high life whilst you’re there. Order room service, use up all the shampoo and soap that’s provided, and take every advantage you can of the breakfast option. Even lounge by the poolside all day, it’s a great place to get a tan and freshen up without even needing to leave the comfortable confines of the hotel.
Affording a luxury holiday takes a bit of planning and a lot of effort within that, but it doesn't have to be impossible to do. Just make sure you’re considering the value you’re getting for you money, and remember that you get what you pay for when you’re booking the cheapest holiday option available!
