How to Have an Affordable Holiday Without a Caravan

Having your own static caravan in a favourite holiday park is a great way to holiday on a low budget, but selling your caravan doesn’t have to mean the end of cheap holidays.

Of course, selling your static will free up a lot of extra cash, but if you’re still wondering how to save money and have a cheap holiday, our quick guide will point you in the right direction.

Pick a cheap destination

It’s not exactly news that some destinations are going to cost you more than others, but closer to home doesn’t always mean cheaper. Consider travel costs for various destinations, but also how much things are going to cost when you’re there. The Telegraph has a great guide to the cheapest European cities to visit, while Business Insider has a list of some of the cheapest beach holidays. Need more inspiration? Put your dates and your budget into Kayak’s Explore tool and you’ll find where all the cheapest flights are going.

Pick cheaper dates

Clearly the school summer holidays aren’t the most cost-effective time to travel, so if avoid those six weeks if you can, but even if that’s your only option there’s still wiggle room when in comes to choosing your exact dates. Tools like SkyScanner can help you pick the dates when flights to a particular destination are at their cheapest, while flying mid-week might get you a better a deal. It’s also worth considering the time that you’re travelling, particularly if you’re staying in the UK, as off-peak travel at quieter times can be a lot cheaper.

Check out price comparison websites

Perhaps the easiest way to find a cheap option, there’s a huge range of price comparison sites available to compare flights, hotels and other elements of your holiday. MoneySavingExpert recommends Kayak for a comprehensive flight comparison, while we like Trivago for hotels. There’s no end to the amount of services you can compare, including car hire, airport transfers and travel money, so shop around to get the best deal.

Go all-inclusive

You could save hundreds of pounds on the overall cost of your trip if you opt for an all-inclusive holiday. While the upfront cost will be higher, the savings on food, drink, entertainment and travel will quickly add up, leaving you with more cash in your pocket at the end.

Take your own food

We’re not suggesting you pack a week’s rations into your suitcase, but packing food for the journey is a quick and easy money-saving move. Service stations, train stations and airports aren’t known for being wallet-friendly places to eat or drink, so planning ahead with a packed lunch or a selection of snacks can help to keep the whole family happy without breaking the bank.

Rent a caravan

Chances are, you invested in a static caravan in part because you enjoy spending your breaks with your family or friends on a holiday park. This doesn’t have to end when you sell your caravan, and it won’t need to cost you a fortune either. Take a look at the website of your favourite holiday park to see what deals they can offer, or branch out and try somewhere new using a site like BreakFreeHolidays.co.uk to compare the best deals at holiday parks across the country.
