As you know, it’s very hard to go on holiday during the very expensive summer (or as Americans say Spring Break) season. It’s even worse if you have more than one child and really want to go further afield than Europe. But I have good news. If you’re still looking to book for this year I found that if you’re willing to wait till the end of the summer holidays and don’t mind not taking a 2 week holiday then you will find some good deals.
I’ve seen that after 27th August (Bank holiday) prices drop considerably and if your kids don’t go back to school till the week beginning 8th September you can easily slip in a cheeky 10 night break and be home with enough time to sleep off the jet lag and get the kids stuff ready for school.
As always when checking prices, don’t take the 1st quote you’re given, always try and haggle down the price. You will be surprised at how much travel agents are willing to bend to accommodate your needs and budget. Also if you haven’t already once you’ve booked your flight be sure to sign up with that airlines flying club so that you can begin collecting air miles and also as a club member you will be sent exclusive holiday deals too so it’s a win all around really.
