CHOOSE CHEAPER DATES
And if your really want to save some good money on your holiday they suggest booking during an off season period.
They said: “Be strategic with your travel dates. If you’re able to go during a less conventional time, then that’s always good for saving
“However, if your only option is over the summer, then you can still be strategic with when exactly you go.
“For example, early August tends to be less crowded than mid-July and you may be able to take advantage of slightly cheaper tickets.”
