No, we certainly will not say that you are going out of credit this summer. Rather, we’ve come up with ideas that can help you make a trip cheaper or make money.
About accommodation prices with more experienced travelers
In fact, I have met two methods so far when I talked about accommodation prices with more experienced travelers. Most people find it a good idea to book a seat well in advance to get it cheaper, but there are also people who get to stay either locally or a few days in advance.
I don’t think it’s worth arguing for the two, since they are both right. If you are looking for one of the top tourist destinations in the middle of the season, you should definitely arrange your accommodation well in advance. However, if you do not choose the busiest time and do not go to places where everyone else is, it is worth finding something locally upon arrival.
Book well in advance if
– planning a beach holiday during the summer holidays
– you go on a city tour for a weekend
– comfort is paramount
You can book accommodation locally if
– plan a longer trip in a particular region
– you do not choose the time which is most preferred by tourists
– you can compromise if you do not get the best accommodation
Use your reward points!
At least if they are. More than one credit card comes with travel credit from airlines. But you can also earn points in hotel chain loyalty programs, which you can redeem for overnight. Think about whether you have one and redeem it.
Although it can be difficult many times, try to avoid crowds. Travel with your family during the school season, when it is much cheaper. The difference in price can be so great that even the kids might be better off sending them to a camp in the summer, because that is the difference. What’s more, it is not just for financial reasons to travel out of season.
