If you are flexible about the time of travel, then visit the place during off-peak months. You will not only avail a massive discount on the hotels and fares, but also have a less-crowded place, that you can explore at your own pace.
Compare price of train/bus/air fares on the internet, using various price comparison engines before booking your tickets. Then choose the fare that suits you best.
3. Single out:
Very often, booking individual elements of a travel package – plane tickets, accommodation, holiday insurance or sight-seeing – separately could prove to be lot cheaper than buying the whole package from a travel firm.
4. Choose widely:
There are different travel packages available, depending on the type of holiday – self-travel, business travel or family travel. Travel firms offer packages, considering factors such as, the number of children travelling with you.
5. Travel light:
Chuck extra clothing. Calculate the days you will be holidaying and then pack accordingly. Extra luggage is cumbersome and leads to extra charges at the airport.
