Holiday cost saving ideas

Getting to the airport on time, finding reasonably priced airport parking, and departing as scheduled are some of today’s toughest challenges. So here is our guide to getting the most out of your holiday or travel budget.

Get the best value flights

Don’t be too rigid about the time of day you want to travel. It’s better to have a general time (morning, afternoon, or evening) in mind and investigate departures offered during that period.

Moving your departure or return time by just an hour can save on your ticket price.

Be flexible on holiday travel dates

Check if a holiday or flight may be cheaper on Tuesday than Monday or Saturday instead of Sunday. Savings can give you what amounts to a free one-day “Holiday” stay at an airport hotel.

Night flights are cheaper than day flights, however your will be asked to leave you room or apartment at the same time so factor in the cost of keeping the room for a few extra hours.

Reduce luggage on low cost carriers.

Do research to understand and compare which airlines offer what amenities for free or at cost, including luggage checks, in-flight entertainment, meals, snacks, pillows. Limit yourself to carry-on baggage, and bring your own comfort items.
