HOW TO PLAN A HOLIDAY/VACATION ON A BUDGET

As you know I do travel quite a lot and enjoy visiting beautiful new countries. I used to believe that you had to be rich to be able to travel but I realised myself that I was wrong when I organised my first holiday on a budget with my mum last summer! I wanted to take my mum to a new country but being a 17 year old girl still in school with no job, I did not have a lot of money. However it is not as difficult as it seems. If you're enthusiastic and are willing to do anything to see more of the world then you are the right person for this.

1) Plan Ahead - I can't stress this point enough! Book your flight/coach as early as possible. I mean months before your actual departure, this will probably save you the most money!

2) Make your trip short - if your budget is quite tight just make the trip as short as possible. Maybe just a weekend in Paris? Or only two days? I would be happy even if it is a small journey.

3) Travel at night - if you're booking a coach, just make sure you leave at night. That way you can get to the country your travelling to in the morning since coach journeys are usually at least 7 hours and you save the money you would spend on for a hotel. That's two less nights at a hotel!

4) All Inclusive Deals - if you prefer staying at a fancy hotel and want to fly as comfortably as possible than taking a coach then I would recommend all inclusive deals. They save you a lot of money in the long term.

5) Off-season holidays - so much cheaper than travelling during Summer/Christmas holidays! If you do want it to be a summer holiday still, tickets in June are so much cheaper than in July/August! Ryanair offers one way tickets for as cheap as 7 pounds!

6) Explore you continent  - I don't know about you people but I think that Europe is a beautiful continent with so much to explore. Some very modern countries but also very traditional countries. I don't understand why the UK would want to leave this beautiful continent. (Sorry I have a strong view on this, I won't mention politics again.) Travelling within Europe is so affordable though. I took my mum to Paris and I can guarantee you the holiday cost me less than 100 pounds!

7) Cheap accommodation - you don't always need hotels and they are definitely not the cheapest option. If you're travelling by car you can always camp at camping sites. B&B's and hostels are also a popular option.
www.airbnb.co.uk -  a website where people make their houses/flats available to rent out and it is a very trustworthy website as all accommodations do get checked before and popular houses/flats have lots of reviews. This is much more affordable.

You don't have to be rich to explore the world! Do you believe me now?
