It can take months or even years of saving to bag a dream holiday, yet with 88 percent of Britons taking some form of holiday every year according to ABTA, it seems travel is a priority. Unsurprisingly, then, more and more people are looking for ways to slash the cost of the experience while embarking on a new adventure.
However, it seems being open-minded about making small changes to your travel plans could be the key to reducing costs and enhancing the overall experience.
Planning in advance, being aware of peak times of the year, and mixing up your methods of travel are all top tips that industry insiders shared with Express.co.uk.
One of the most well-known ways to make some big savings is to be aware of popular times for travel, particularly school holidays.
“By avoiding school holidays, travellers can enjoy exploring destinations without the influx of families that typically the only holiday at during these times,” a travel expert from RentalCars.com told Express.co.uk.

“Not only does this mean less queuing for tourist hot spots and sightseeing, but the atmosphere of your destination could be more tranquil.
“Booking in advance is normally the best way to save money on holidays – and it means you’ve got plenty of time to research and find the most suitable options for your trip.”
Plenty of airlines hold seat sales throughout the year boasting multiple opportunities to save.
However, they can pop up spontaneously, and some airlines offer the lowest prices based on supply and demand, which means travellers can miss them if they don’t act fast.
Luckily, Rentalcars.com offers a handy tip to ensure holidaymakers are always in the loop.
“Set up google alerts for ‘holiday sales’ to get the best deals and sign up to booking sites to receive their latest offers too,” they advise.
“Sale periods throughout the year can also be the best time to look into trips away, particularly if you’re on a budget.”
Though spontaneous travel can add excitement to the experience, the experts warn it could come with an added cost.
