Cost Cutting Tips
Advice driven article about Finding Economically Friendly holidays & cheap holidays

Spain has long been the destination of choice for people looking for great value holidays. The country has a little bit of everything (actually, rather a lot of everything): history, art, great climate, food, natural beauty, friendly locals, it’s a great place to visit at almost any time of the year.

However, with the economic crisis, holidays in Spain have become a little more expensive, even through specialist providers like On The Beach, so if you’re looking for a really cheap holiday here are five tips for saving the pennies.

Currency Exchange

Getting a good deal on foreign currency is probably the most important element of saving money on holiday. A lot of people exchange money on the high street at not particularly generous rates, and, if you’re exchanging a lot of money, that can get expensive.

One idea to avoid that is simply to ask your friends, swapping euros for pounds directly is always cheapest. Secondly, get a travel cash card, these can be used in any ATM machine and usually have extremely low (if not 0%) commission and great exchange rates.

Book Early

When it comes to package holidays you might save money booking earlier, but package holidays aren’t always the cheapest way to do it. When it comes to flights, you’ll definitely save a lot of money by booking early, as well as with any internal transfers that you take.

Rent A Car

If you’re planning on doing some exploring, renting a car is definitely the best way to get around. Not only can you find accommodation off the beaten track (which is usually far cheaper) but you can also save a lot on public transport (which is very good in most parts of Spain, but can get expensive).

Shop Around

Insurance is important for any traveller, whether you’re going for a long stint travelling or the shortest of breaks. It doesn’t have to be expensive, and a quick trip to a comparison website like MoneySuperMarket could save you quite a lot of money.

Avoid the Tourist Hotspots

Barcelona is an amazing place to visit, but it’s also an expensive place to visit so if you’re really looking to save money, it might be worth giving the top tourist destinations a miss. Try out smaller places like Valencia, which are less popular but equally fantastic, or explore the coastlines a little more and get away from the resorts.
