Lady Shopping

Who doesn’t love a good deal? Getting the best products and services for the best value isn’t just an afterthought, it’s a lifestyle choice! We want to help you make the most of your time to travel. With that in mind, here are 10 tips for you to save money on travel in 2016.

Off peak sales

If you’re on a tight budget, consider going on away on holiday when others can’t. Taking a family holiday just before or after the school holidays is a certain way to save on flights and accommodation. If you like holidaying at Christmas time, why not book a holiday to Lapland in January and you will have almost a year to pay for your trip.

Payment plans

Book early with Falcon and take advantage of low deposits. For holidays where a low deposit is offered, you can book from as little as €100 per person.  

Money saving apps

You can get a free Android app that translates around 100 languages  — the app lets you download language packs that you can access offline — so you won’t have to use any data! There’s also a handy free app that turns your smartphone into a Sat Nav in more than 85 countries, using the built-in GPS in your phone to locate you.  Forget expensive Sat Navs and taxi fares — find your way around the easy way!

Last minute holidays and late deals

It’s no secret that booking a holiday at the last minute can save you cash. If you feel like suddenly upping sticks, take a look at our last minute and late holiday deals and get yourself to somewhere sunny. You deserve it!

Fly from an alternative airport

Sometimes the closest airport to your home works out more expensive than a sister airport. Sometimes your flights can be really cheap if you’re willing to travel further to get on a flight. Plan ahead and save money!

Organise car hires before travelling

If you’re dotting about the place on holiday, hiring a car can save you lots of money. Booking early lets you compare deals and monitor potential discounts — you’ll also be able to decide on a sensible model of car. Forget about costly added extras like Sat Nav — use the app we discussed earlier.

Take free tours and walk

Cheap flights and accommodation don’t always mean a cheap holiday. It might feel as if you money to burn after finding a great holiday deal — which in turn can lead you to overspend when you arrive. Take advantage of free tours and attractions. Walk to places, if you can. It’s free and is one of the best ways to get a suntan!
