So, the nights are getting darker and there’s an unmistakable chill in the air – autumn is on its way. You may be clinging onto hopes that summer will come back just for a little bit longer, refusing to don your coat and withstanding the cold saying “it’s not so bad!”. But you can get summer back just for a little while. “How?” I hear you ask. By getting a last-minute autumn holiday deal, that’s how! Autumn is the best time of year for you to book a holiday: the kids are all back at school, there are fewer lines in the airport, and you’re first in line to bag the best seats by the pool!
So, how can you get the best autumn deals for your holiday this year? Read on for some of our best tips to get you jet-setting back into summer.
Look For Package Deals
Package deals are a great way to cut costs and get a cheaper holiday. If you’re going to a popular tourist destination like Spain or Greece, package holidays can make it cheaper for flights and accommodation. You might think it will be more cost effective to look for separate flight and hotel deals. This could be the right path if you’re going for a city break or for more than a week or two. It’s also good if you’re going to a less popular destination or hopping to multiple places.
Package holidays are great for a week or two in the sun by the pool. They’re also ATOL protected so, if anything goes wrong, you’ll be covered. They usually work out to be pretty cheap and easy to book online or through an agency.
Get the Right Stuff
Once you’ve got the holiday booked, you need to get the right stuff to arrive in style. Of course, getting your budgie smugglers is number one priority – nobody’s arguing that. But you need to make sure you keep healthy in the sun. You can get great deals both online and in store for swimwear and holiday outfits since most places are getting warmer clothes in stock for the winter. It’s easy to forget to bring important things when you jet off on a last minute holiday. Your eye health is very important so you’d better remember to pack your daily lenses and sunglasses too. If you’re in a panic the day before your flight as you’ve forgotten to stock up, you can get some of the best contact lenses online if you order by 8pm to receive tomorrow! Getting the best deals for your holiday gear can make sure you don’t break the bank.
All Inclusive or Self Catered?
Going all inclusive or self catered is the big question here. Which one will save you money and which one will rip you off? The answer depends on what you’re looking to do there. If you want to stay close to the resort and chill by the pool, all inclusive will save you a lot of money. But, if you’re looking to explore the area and eat in local restaurants and bars, self catering will work best for you.
Fly Back into Summer One Last Time
A last minute autumn holiday is the perfect way to claw back a taste of summer for the last time this year. Getting the best deals on flights, accommodation, food and holiday supplies is essential. You don’t want to blow all your money on a holiday, and these deals will make sure you get the best price. So, what are you waiting for? Book the trip and start packing!
