When booking a short break you want to be sure you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck. Whether that be a glamping trip, a cottage in the countryside, or a luxury hotel break, you’re going to want to scout out the best deal. Here’s a few tips on how to get the best discounts on short breaks…
You’ll need to be on the ball for this one, but flash sales offer great deals which can offer incredible savings for a short time only. If you’ve got one particular place in mind, continue to check on their website for any seasonal discounts, or sign up to their newsletters and emails so that you’re in-the-know.
Check for discounted or free child places
Lots of companies offer free or discounted child prices when you book as a family. Check with the company or hotel/accommodation if they offer this and you’re sure to save a significant amount on your short break!
Whether you’re booking a hotel, cottage, or you’re trying your hand at glamping, look out for things included in the total price when you book. For example, do you receive discounts on local attractions, complimentary snacks, food or drink and can you choose additional experiences to add to your package during your stay, keep your eyes peeled for deals like this!
Booking a short break in the height of summer might be more convenient for you and your family but it also might be a little pricier. Consider organising your short break for late summer, autumn, or mid winter. This is sure to land you some decent savings.
If you sign up for a membership at certain attractions or resorts, you’re sure to receive some significant savings when you book your next mini-break there. If you’re a member of the Aspinall Foundation, you’ll receive unlimited free entry to Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve and enjoy 10% off retail and catering, and a free guide book (EDIT: The Aspinall Foundation no longer offers a discount on short breaking bookings as a benefit of membership, but does include early access to Short Break sales and late availability discounts).
