9 simple ways to save money on your holiday
Travel on your own.
Traveling on your own (without travel agencies) is much more interesting and way cheaper. Yes, you have to remember that all the responsibility for any problems will be on your shoulders. However, travel agencies often can’t help in such situations anyway, so they blame the airlines, unforeseeable circumstances, the country you are visiting, and so on. When you travel on your own, you can plan the route that you want, choose the cheapest flight, book the best hotel in terms of location and price, and choose your transfer. Andrey Mironchuk, a blogger from Belarus, says, “A trip from Minsk to the Canary Islands with a travel agency costs around €1,100. If you plan your own trip, the worst-case scenario is that it will cost you €500.” That’s a lot of money! And we think that it’s well worth the time you spend carefully planning your trip.
