A trip to Florida is going to be costly, there’s no way around that! Long flights, accommodation and theme park entry soon adds up! But there are lots of things you can do to save money on a Florida holiday.
Find a good deal
This might sound pretty obvious, but it is vital to find a good deal when you’re looking to save money on a Florida holiday. As a money-saving freak, paying over the odds send chills down my spine. So ALWAYS spend some time hunting around for the best deal. Lots of online agents offer package deals that are actually cheaper than booking things individually. Spend some time comparing and work out which option is cheaper. It’s also worth searching online for discount codes too.
Use a cashback site
You could get a fair chunk of the cost of your holiday back by using a cashback site. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of using one for your online purchases throughout the year too.
Shop the sales
As well as the cost of the actual holiday, kitting the family out with a holiday wardrobe can be an expensive job! Try to be savvy and shop at the end of the summer season before your trip in order to bag the best bargains. So, if you’re travelling in May, plan ahead and hit the shops in late August/early September the year before. That’s the time when the shops are trying to clear out their summer stock in preparation for the new Autumn/Winter range. Don’t forget that you will probably need to buy one size up for the children if you do this, it’s amazing how quickly they grow!
You can also use discount codes when you’re shopping online to get great deals too. Download the shoppers browser which automatically adds working discount codes to your online basket. It works at thousands of UK retailers and it saves you hunting around for codes online that might or might not work!
Watch the exchange rate
The exchange rate can make a big difference to how much money you can afford to spend whilst you’re out there. As part of your mission to save money on a Florida holiday, you should definitely keep an eye on the exchange rate and try to buy dollars when it’s up!
Hire a car separately
Travel agents often really overprice their hire car deals. By hiring with an independent company, you can often save a small fortune. Again, make sure to use a cashback site to get some money back on your purchase.
Hopefully these tips will help you to save money on a Florida holiday, and perhaps help you to get there when you otherwise might not have felt able to afford it!
