TV presenter talks about different holiday types and how to getaway for less in the UK.
Jenni Falconer talked to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on ITV’s This Morning programme about holiday ideas and deals.
In what is an already testing financial time for many and with widespread news recently that some airlines and travel operators are bumping up the cost to fly this doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t take a holiday this year.
The Scottish TV presenter talked through a variety of Easter break ideas – including many UK breaks which don’t break the bank.
One of the ideas talked about where you could holiday for less without compromising was exactly what this site helps you find – a log cabin which has its very own hot tub. Located in forest locations you have nature and a wide variety of activities both energetic and relaxing on your doorstep.
Keeping The Cost Down
As well as looking out for genuine special offers and deals there are two main ways you can keep the cost of your time away, as low as possible.
In the main, if you want to keep the price per person low, then taking a holiday in a small group, with friends or family will achieve this. Typically lodges and log cabins sleep at least 4 people, so by sharing the bill per person, it could be quartered.
Jenni’s example was 4 nights for 4 people sharing which totalled £361. Broken down, this works out well under £25 per person per night – which is affordable for many and should represent good value for money.
Out Of Season:
Often you pay a premium when holidaying during the school summer holidays and various term and half term breaks. By avoiding these dates should save on the cost of your holiday.
So, if restrictions on when you can travel aren’t an issue for you, you could be ‘quids in’ by taking your break ‘out of season’.
