10 Top Ways To Save On 2022 Holidays

10 Top Ways To Save On 2022 Holidays

Craving the sun on your skin and the sand between your toes? Prepare for a 2022 escape that’s hot, sunny and great value for money with some of our favourite holiday saving tips…

1. Try Odd Holiday Durations

More often than not, people book holidays for one or two weeks. However, sometimes you can find the best deals crop up on holidays for less popular durations. Next time you’re searching, see what kind of deals you find if you opt for eight nights, 10 nights or 13 nights. This trick won’t make the world of difference every time, but just sometimes you’ll find a hidden gem that’s an absolute bargain!

You can use our handy holiday searcher to look at different durations, and once you have your list of deals you can use our fabulous filtering system to make sure they’re perfect for you. Check it out here.

2. Be Flexible With Your Departure Airport

Everyone has a handful of selected airports they would prefer to fly from – most likely the ones closest to your home town. However, it can make a significant difference to your price to be open-minded about travelling that little bit further to your departure airport. Quite often, bigger airports such as Manchester, Birmingham and London airports will have better value deals due to the volume of holidays that depart from them.

3. Check Deals At The Start & End Of Season

It goes without saying that the most expensive time for a holiday is often in the height of the summer holidays. This is why we always love sneaking in a holiday in the quieter, start or end-of-season weeks. You’ll often find great deals in months such as May, when many destinations are hotting up, or September, when the schools have all just gone back. Being open-minded to holidays at all times of the year could really help you bag a bargain!

4. Get The Best Value With All Inclusive

Whilst many of our customers LOVE an All Inclusive getaway, there are still plenty who haven’t yet tried one. It can be tempting to choose the self catering or half-board option when you know you want to get out of your hotel and explore the local area. However, the value you get from All Inclusive is unmatched. When you add up how much your party would spend on three meals a day, along with drinks and snacks, and then compare that to your average daily price of an All Inclusive holiday, almost every time the All Inclusive option will be cheaper. If you’ve not yet given it a go, we suggest you do!

5. Keep An Eye Out For Discount Codes

We love a discount code! As often as we can, we will share promotional discounts to help our customers get the very best deal they can. You will find all of our current promotional offers in one handy place, on our Discount Codes page. We’d suggest having a quick look on this page whenever you search for a holiday, so you know exactly what kind of fantastic offer you can get your hands on.

6. Be Open-Minded About Your Destination

Open to trying new destinations? You’ll be much more likely to find a cheap deal if so! Often, the best thing to do is put in your preferred dates and departure airports and let the deals choose themselves. It’s not only a great way to find holidays at unbeatable prices, but it gives you so much opportunity to discover a place or culture you may not have considered before. From Tunisia to Thailand and Malta to Mauritius, you just never know where you’ll end up!

7. Plan Free Or Low-Cost Activities For Your Stay

One of the key ways to save money abroad is to stick to a set amount of spending money and make use of the many free and low-cost activities you can find on holiday. There are so many ways to enjoy your time away on a budget, from exploring local landmarks and beaches to getting involved with your hotel’s activity programme. Check out some of our favourite holiday hacks for cheap or free family activities here.

8. Look Out For Free Child Places

Family holidays can be costly. However, a really great way for families to save is for them to take advantage of the free child places available on many holiday packages with TUI and First Choice. You’ll find free child places on various deals departing between May and October this year (subject to availability and T&Cs apply). To find these holidays, simply search for family deals and select the ‘free child places’ filter. This will quickly give you a list of some of the best value 2022 family holidays you’ll find!

9. Get The Best Value With A Package Holiday

This one may go without saying, but there are still so many holiday-makers out there who book their flights, transfers, baggage and hotels separately. Nine times out of ten, you’ll get a much better deal – and much better security on your holiday – when you book your escape as a package. You’ll find everything that’s included in our holidays is clearly listed on the page of your selected deal, so you always know what you’re getting for your money.

10. Book At The Very Last Minute

When you book a holiday just a day or two before departure, you’re likely to bag yourself a fabulous deal. Those seats are there to fill, after all! From spontaneous visits to the likes of Spain and Greece to an unexpected adventure filled with long-haul luxury, you just never know where a last minute holiday might take you! Check out some of our best last minute deals here, and prepare to pack your bags!
