Book a vacation and be thoughtful at the same time. Here are our tips on how to make a vacation deal that will make you smile but also with a little cash in your bank account.
Book online with credit card
In 2019, one of the largest travel companies, Thomas Cook, went into liquidation, leaving thousands unsure of what to expect on their vacation. Recent news reports indicate that customers still owe tens of millions of pounds. When you book with a credit card, you get additional financial protection if business goes down. For example, if you book a boat with yachtrentalgreece.com and that days are pretty bad waters, you get a refund on your bank account. If something goes wrong, the credit card provider has the same responsibility as the retailer for winning the cardholder back.
Look outside the eurozone
As it is not clear whether the UK will leave the EU with or without a deal by the end of 2020, the pound could face further ups and downs in the coming months. Because of this, it is worth looking at goals outside the euro area where the pound remains strong or even strengthens. Countries like Turkey, Morocco, South Africa, Romania and Poland offer British tourists great value for money with the pound growing thanks to good exchange rates.
Be flexible with the holiday dates
Having the flexibility to fly during the day, hour, or even month you fly can save you a lot of money on finding the best travel deals. Flying an average week is the best option to save money, and research has found that Friday is the cheapest day to fly. Booking flights early in the morning or late at night can also save you a little money when you’re ready to reach your destination at a later date.
