How to Plan a Spontaneous Trip on a Budget

November 30, 2012

Finding a low-cost break is often on top of most holidaymakers’ minds when it comes to choosing their next escape. After all, with the price of living continuing to rise, we’re all feeling the pinch – so finding an affordable break that still ticks all the right boxes for location, amenities and style is paramount.

If you’re choosing a package holiday, last minute bookings are still a great way to get away without compromising on price. Typically you’ll find the best late deals in the six weeks or so running up to the departure date, as this is when tour operators routinely slash their prices in order to sell off those last few holidays. Your best bet is to keep an open mind, as last minute holidays are low in availability. So when planning a spontaneous trip be as flexible as possible and search across a wide criteria, and you might just find something that ticks all the right boxes.

If you’re planning to stay in or near the hotel for much of your trip, all inclusive is a great way to ramp up the value of your holiday and save your spending money. All inclusive typically means that all of your meals, snacks and drinks are included in the cost of your break, so when combined with a package holiday it means you barely need to lift a finger!

And, imagine if you found an all inclusive break that was in the last minute sale. You get the ‘everything’s included’ perk plus the cost has been reduced – it’s the same holiday, just cheaper. Too good to be true? They do exist – check out these last minute all inclusive holidays with The Co-Operative Travel. Oh, you’re welcome!

So whether you’re a last minute kind of traveller or the type who likes to plan everything a year in advance, there are tons of low cost holidays out there – it’s just a matter of finding your favourite.
