So one day on our short trip to Manila last October 19, 2014, me and my friends decided that to join a day tour in our country’s last military station before the Japanese took over of the Philippines in 1942.

Great Deals on Gorgeous Getaways

If you’re planning to go away this year but you’re hoping to get a little help with the cost, you’re in luck. Thanks to the booming package holiday market, which is home to a rich variety of holidays covering virtually every type of getaway imaginable, you’re never too far from a great deal or a money-saving discount to help make your getaway that little bit easier.

Let’s say you’ve got exotic getaways on the agenda, and you’re hoping to find Goa holidays this year. It’s certainly not the cheapest location to get to, and you won’t find anything quite as cheap as a weekend in Benidorm – but you can still enjoy a good discount by taking some time to carry out your holiday search. Firstly, look for late deals. Usually, when you look for holidays departing within the next few weeks, you’ll find that the prices have been reduced to try and sell off those last few packages. This is a great time to look for bargains and, although availability is limited, providing you’re as flexible as possible with your search criteria you can snap up some wonderful savings.

Ideally, look for holidays that depart within school term time. This won’t work well for those looking for family holiday deals, but for other types of holidays, travelling outside of the school holidays can significantly reduce the cost of your getaway.

Another great way to secure a discount is to look for early bird deals. When you book well in advance, such as a year or more before your chosen departure date, you will often be privy to some great early bird discounts advertised by various tour operators. What’s more, by booking in advance you will have longer to pay off the cost of the holiday – plus you’ll have more time to save some spending money, meaning you’ve got more to play with once you get there.
