Sun vacations for less
(NC) Now is the time of year when winter seems to drag endlessly on and spring can feel much too far away. If you’re craving a sunny escape but need an affordable option that keeps you on budget, check out these savings tips.
- Book early. Last-minute bookings can be tricky, as travellers are left to choose among resorts and room categories that are still available.But planning and booking early can actually help you save a lot more money. Take advantage of early-bird deals and discounts and get first dibs on resort and room selections.
- Travel during the low season. There are fewer people and prices tend to be lower during the months of April to June or September to November. Avoid travelling during holidays like Christmas or Easter, spring break and long weekends in summer, when prices are highest.
- Look for special deals. If travelling with small children, shop for resorts where kids under 12 can stay for free. If you’re travelling with eight or more in your party, you can take advantage of special group promotions where one person stays for free.
- Protect your pocketbook. Look for a travel protection plan that covers you with a price drop guarantee in case the price for the package you booked is reduced. This way you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re going to get the best deal now and in the future.
