Luxury holidays are not just for the rich and famous. Anyone can enjoy a luxury break, including you! Don’t believe us? Read on for our top tips on how to enjoy a luxury break, but not one that breaks your bank!
Avoiding the busy times (the summer months and any time the kids are off school) means those big expenses on flights and accommodation will be much cheaper. This is no secret, but people still choose to go on holiday during peak season and then complain about how busy and expensive everything is. We understand that the busiest months are also the hottest months. However, many luxurious locations like Greece, Turkey, Spain and the South of France still get great weather in September and even October. In fact, some would argue that the temperatures are actually far more comfortable at this time than in the height of summer.
Cheap flights, luxury accommodation
If you are prepared to compromise and to be flexible, this is a really great tip. Find out where you can fly for next to nothing. Your choices may be locations you have never even heard of before, or they may be within the UK. However, by spending the least amount of money you can on flights, you can allocate the majority of your budget to luxury accommodation and posh restaurants. You may not end up in the exotic location you dreamed of, but you will be able to indulge in some lovely luxuries nevertheless. The earliest you do this the cheaper you will get the flights for so start browsing now!
Stay away from the tourist traps
Destinations that are popular with tourists tend to have inflated prices. To save you some money, research areas that are a bit off the beaten the track. Do your research thoroughly, however, as you want to avoid ending up in a location that is not visited by tourists for a very good reason!
The more the merrier
If your friends and family are also up for a luxurious holiday (we can’t think why they wouldn’t be?!) you can all save money by sharing the costs. Imagine renting a French style luxury villa on the Cote d’Azur for a week or two with a big group of loved ones. What could be better? As you’ll be staying in self-catered accommodation, you will all also share the costs of food and drinks, saving you even more cash!
Book last minute
Last minute deals make many holidaymakers feel very uncomfortable. If you can make peace with the fact that you must give up most of your control of the dates and destination, there is a good chance you can get a luxury holiday for an affordable price. There are many travel sites out there that advertise last minute deals on their website and in their newsletters. So sign up and keep your eyes peeled for deals suits you time, destination and budget wise.
