Practical ideas for funding your holiday spending money


Brits spend over £400 per person while on holiday, according to recent surveys. If you’ve just booked your perfect getaway and are wondering how to raise the cash for your holiday treats, see how much you could save by following these seven tips.

1. Order your currency before you travel
Shop around online to find the most competitive exchange rate, remembering to take into account any delivery costs or handling fees. If you can get more Euros, dollars, baht, or rupees for your pound, that’s more to spend on having a good time.

2. Use the Internet to make some cash
If you have a wardrobe full of things you no longer wear, you can use the Internet as a quick and easy way of raising funds by selling clothes for cash. Enter some details into an online form, post your clothes off and await your spending money.

3. Borrow your guide books from the library
Instead of spending money on guidebooks, order them for free from your local library and you’ll save enough for a meal out.

4. Book your airport parking in advance
Pre-book your airport parking as far in advance as possible and choose the cheapest long-stay option to free up more funds. Early booking can save you a third of the cost; however, even those making last-minute getaways can make savings, as same-day web bookings will still cost less than the price on the gate.

5. Take pre-booked public transport to the airport
In most cases, public transport is a cheaper option than airport parking so if you live within a couple of hours of the airport why not find out how much you could save? Airport coaches can cost as little as £2 each way, while two weeks parking at a London airport — even pre-booked — will set you back at least £80.

If you prefer the rails, travel on standard train lines rather than dedicated airport services for a cheaper journey that is usually only a few minutes longer, remembering to book early to benefit from the cheapest fares.

6. Find a low-cost insurance policy online
Use the Internet to get the best price on your travel insurance, checking both the online comparison sites and the websites of providers that aren’t on these sites – just remember to read the small print for exclusions and excess amounts.

7. Save on holiday car hire or use local public transport
Comparison sites are also great for finding cheap car hire deals, although local companies’ websites are worth checking too (if you can decode the lingo!). However, if you research your destination you may find that local public transport can get you everywhere you want to go for a fraction of the price.

Bon Voyage!

Follow the advice above and you’ll be sure to have plenty in your pocket for a great getaway.
