How To Get Cheaper Holidays In 2010

Author: Yvonne Dawson
Many of us have struggled to afford a holiday during 2009 what with the worry about the recession, considering how safe our jobs are and constant rise in holiday prices. So we have reached the winter months and find ourselves longing for some sunshine. The BBQ summer for the UK that the Met Office predicted surprisingly never managed to penetrate our rain soaked brollies and with the prospect of long dark nights and cold winter days our thoughts inevitably turn to holidays.

With no serious end to the recession in sight though and the government constantly reminding us of hard times ahead, how can we be sure we can afford a holiday? How do we make sure we get the best possible deal we can? How do we really get cheaper holidays in 2010? Well as the home interior specialists are always telling us, it’s time to minimise…

No-one said we had to have a two week holiday every year, so why not save yourself a fortune and go for a week or ten days instead, you’ll be amazed at how much money this can actually save you, and you won’t be missing out on your well earned break.

Normally do that anyway? Then try a city break, a few days away in a lovely hotel, beautiful scenery, shopping and a show can work wonders for your self esteem and re-charge those batteries without breaking the bank. Or simply relax in the sunshine on a long weekend away.

Over the summer of 2009, many thrifty holidaymakers booked ten and eleven night breaks over the internet, but many tour operators are now starting to offer ‘in-between’ trips in a bid to keep their share of the market.

Britain’s biggest holiday firm, TUI has reported a 64% rise in bookings for shorter breaks. Their biggest operators, Thomson and First Choice have increased the number of ten and eleven night breaks in their 2010 brochures by 21%. Co-operative travel has also noticed a 35% increase in ten night holidays booked.

Many people find a week is just too short and a fortnight a little long, so ten and eleven night holidays make perfect sense all round. A shorter break could save a family of four between £50 and £200 per person, and with less money needed for spending and excursions; the saving can be quite considerable.

Choosing destinations still outside the euro zone is another way to make sure you keep holiday spending down. Holidays in Turkey, Croatia, Bulgaria and Egypt are particularly great value for your holiday money. So by shortening the length of your holiday and choosing your destination carefully, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy cheap holidays this winter and into the summer of 2010.
