Top Tips To Travel For Less ✈
So, May is a pretty stressful time for students. And do you know what we reckon the best stress relief is? A holiday.
But alas, a student budget is, well... Not that easy to stretch. That's why we've gathered together some of our top tips on how to getaway from it all for less!
You probably don't need to bring as much stuff as you think you need. A cabin bag is usually enough to last you for a few days away, so don't pay extra to check in luggage. Just think, people who go travelling around the world for months only have a backpack of stuff for 6 MONTHS... I'm sure you can last a few days with minimal luggage.
Yeah, we're pretty good at helping out with this one. You can get a 10% student discount at Hotels.com and save some money wherever you're booking! Pretty sweet, right? Plus, you can look through all the reviews of the hotels beforehand, so you know you're staying somewhere amazing. I'm thinking: big pool, tasty breakfasts, and a great view of Barcelona - anyone?
When searching for flights always make sure you open an incognito tab to check. That way they won't bump up the price because they won't know who is looking at it! If you don't go incognito and keep looking at the same flights for the same place you can guarantee those prices are gonna keep going up.
Speaking of flights. Prices can vary from day to day, so make sure you're flexible with your dates. Avoiding the weekends can make a huge impact on the price of flights, so try looking for Wednesday flights instead.

When you're on holiday it can be easy to head straight to the tourist attractions - sure everyone wants to visit the Eiffel Tower, but also everyone KNOWS that. So, if you want to pick up some food when you're out and about, stay away from the big attractions because the prices are going to be through the roof.
