Travel Insurance

Getting travel insurance for your journey is something that needs to be thought about first and foremost. Anything has the potential to go wrong on your trip, but knowing that some of it is financially backed up is at least one bit that can go towards your peace of mind being restored. You will need to check that your insurance policy has medical insurance within it; some don’t automatically include it, and it can be extremely expensive to get treated in a country that you do not have residency in. Things like lost luggage, flight delays and hotel changes can also be covered – you will just need to ensure that you are checking through the documents that are provided to see if you get them included. It’s worth paying extra for them, just in case one of these things happens to you, but remember to go to a recommended comparison site to get good deal.

Prepaid Money Card

While it’s a good idea to travel with cash, there is also an element of risk to it. If you are travelling in a country that has a high crime rate, such as Honduras or Venezuela, it is safer to travel with a prepaid money card. That way, it’s not linked to your bank account should your card be stolen for fraudulent purposes, and you are not being wiped out of all of your financial resources before your trip has ended. It is also good to take a fake or old wallet to put at the top of your bag. That way, the thief will take it without delving further into your bag to find where the real money is stashed – they’ll just think they’ve hit the jackpot with the empty wallet that’s on the top.

Passport/ID

It doesn’t matter if you’re travelling across the country that you live in or flying halfway across the world – taking identification with you is vital. That way, should anything untoward happen, you will be able to be identified easily and help gotten your way as quickly as possible. If you don’t want to leave your hotel room or hostel with your passport on you, look at investing in a cheaper form of ID to carry with you at all times. It’s understandable that you wouldn’t want to lose the main documentation that can get you from A to B, so ensure that this is kept in a safe place that is easily accessible. If you lose the identification that you have on you that has been bought with the intention of possibly being lost or stolen, it’s not such a bad thing – just make sure it’s nothing that can be used against you, such as a driving license.

Top Tips for Budget Breaks

In the market for cheap package holidays this summer? Then don’t leave home without checking out some of these top tips for budget breaks – they could save you a small fortune on your next getaway!

DIY holidays

For those that like to go their own way and book their own holidays, there are plenty of low-cost flights out there serving all the main holiday destinations several times per week during the summer, and many small resorts and airports too. The best way to grab the lowest fares is to book well in advance, as the best prices are short-lived and soon sky-rocket the closer you get to the departure date.

Accommodation deals vary enormously, as some hoteliers offer the cheapest prices early on while others advertise late deals. The good thing is that there is often high competition between hoteliers in holiday resorts, so if one hotel puts its prices up, the chances are there will be one on the next street that’s more affordable.

Package holiday deals

If you want to find holiday deals through a package tour operator, you can still find last-minute bargains by booking within a few weeks of the departure date. This is a great way to snap up a low-cost break as many tour operators drop their prices to avoid letting flight seats and hotel rooms go empty. Flexibility is key as availability is limited, so make sure you’re as flexible with your criteria as possible to get the best prices.

You’ll often find early bird deals on package holidays too. Tour operators frequently offer great discounts on next season’s holidays, and this also gives you extra time to pay off the cost of the booking and save some spending money too. So the general rule is that booking in advance is usually the best all-round choice for any style of holiday.
