We all love a break, but also do not love spending a lot of money. There are many ways that you can reduce your holiday spend, but still have an amazing family holiday to refresh and spend quality time with your loved ones.
1. Sign up for newsletters
The best way to keep in the know about any sales or promotions from your favourite airline, destination or accommodation is to sign up to their E-Newsletters. This gives you the opportunity to get the best prices in different times of the year.
2. Cook for yourselves
To save a lot of money eating at restaurants and cafes, make sure you cook most of your meals yourself. Of course you want to go out and experience the restaurants around you on holiday, but if you cook at least half of the meals you have on holiday, you’ll be amazed at how much money you can save. Most Caravan Parks and other self contained accommodation properties have communal BBQ’s and fully equipped kitchens with supermarkets in close proximity.
While this isn’t always possible with kids in school, being flexible with your dates can save you lots of money. Traveling off season is always your best option, but if that’s not feasible, then consider a few days either side of your preferred dates if it is cheaper
4.Plan some activities before you leave.
If you plan your holiday before you leave, you will know how much money you will need, and have the added bonus of being able to search for any deals on these activities. These include trips to the zoo and amusement parks etc.
Although most things will be planned, allow some money and time for ‘impulsive’ decisions so you don’t miss out on doing something you really want to do, but didn’t previously know about.
5. Stay Local
Who says you have to travel abroad for an excellent family holiday? Sometimes the best family trips can be at a caravan park just an hour down the road, plus you won’t have to stress about flights or visa. Adelaide and South Australia have some great attractions and experiences that people from other states love to visit, so why not stay in your own backyard.
Adelaide Shores offers great rates for all travellers, along with holding multiple sales and promotions throughout the year. Sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Social Media for the latest news!
