Top tips to help you slash the cost of your staycation!
At a time when lots of us are tightening our belts, it might feel as though affording a much-needed staycation is off the cards - but there are a few things you can do to slash the cost.
From discounted activities to haggling for the best deal, Dave Fishwick shares his money-saving tips for a cheaper holiday.
1) Book direct with the hotelCheck the website before you give them a call to find out how much it's going to cost. You can also ask for the manager or the owner because they might make a decision where you could get it cheaper. You can get things like a free breakfast, or maybe even a free glass of wine!
2) Share a cottage with another groupWhether it's friends or family, you can get together and book a slightly bigger place to help cut down on your costs. Don't forget to check for any last-minute deals. Booking in advance isn't always the best price!
3) Find transport dealsWhy not take a look at public transport options, or even car rentals to help get you to your destination. Lots of cities offer discounts for local tourists. You could also take a look online or at your local airport to find some potential deals on car rentals.
