TRICKS TO SAVE MONEY FOR YOUR NEXT VACATION - FLIGHTLAYAWAY

Traveling the world doesn't have to mean spending a fortune.

Planning a vacation can often feel like a tremendously expensive endeavor – but travelers interested in cutting down their costs might be surprised at how many opportunities there are to save money on a trip.

If you find yourself in need of a vacation without the money to finance it, before you cancel your vacation plans altogether, here are 5 simple things you can do to keep your vacation plans on track.


1. Plan early and book your flights well in advance
Nothing saves money like planning does. So, if you have a destination in mind, make sure you at least book your air tickets soon as they eat up the largest chunk of any vacation budget, especially international vacations. Alternatively, you can set a Price Alert on the Skyscanner website or mobile app for your desired flights and we will notify you once the flight price drops.

2. Be flexible

Being flexible with your travel dates often translates into saving. More often than not, travelling on weekdays will let you enjoy cheaper airfare. To help you, Skyscanner gives you a fare chart for the entire month so you can select the dates when the prices are the lowest.

3. Travel during shoulder season
Each place you visit will have a peak season when it gets filled with tourists. Travelling during that period deciphers into high airfare, high accommodation costs and overcrowded sightseeing spots. Instead, skip all this and visit the place just before or after the peak season to get the best of both worlds. So, if you want to travel to Paris where June to August is the peak season, planning your trip in early-May will ensure a pleasant weather along with non-peak-season costs.

4. Avoid international credit card transactions
If you are travelling abroad, make sure you carry enough local currency with you so that you don’t need to pay hefty exchange rates charged by banks when you use credit cards. If you are skeptical about carrying cash, you could opt for a forex card that is a safe, economical and convenient option.
 

5. Don’t overpack

Paying for extra baggage at the airport when you are off to a vacation is the most criminal waste of money we can think of. Make sure you carry only those items that you absolutely cannot do without (and of course, a few extra ones; but that’s it).
