Bundle together, save together: While getting on a plane can be quite the adventure for the kids, it may take a sizable chunk out of the travel budget. The best way to save on airfares is by bundling the flight with the accommodation. This often results in additional discounts, leaving more for fun activities at the destination. (Unsplash)

Start the day with a good breakfast: It’s crucial to start an activity-rich vacation day with some proper breakfast. But feeding those hungry mouths out of pocket every day can add up! Booking accommodation with breakfast included not only can save lots of money, but it also provides some peace of mind – the coffee is already brewing, the bread ready to toast. Just make sure you wake up in time!(Unsplash)


Go deal-hunting: Travel platforms often introduce special discounted rates for occasions like ‘double-days’, pay-day, upcoming holidays, and many other reasons. It’s worth keeping track of those, and you may even stumble upon some ‘secret deals’ with stacked discounts.(Unsplash)

To book refundable or not to book refundable: If like most families you have fixed travel dates due to school term breaks, great savings can still be made if you opt for the non-refundable lower price deals. If you need some flexibility with the dates of travel you can compare room rates and conditions for the deals that suit you.(Unsplash)
