HAVE you booked your post-lockdown trip away yet?
No? No problem. The Sun’s bargain breaks are back, so start collecting codes, tokens or codewords today for a Hol From £9.50.
And follow these tips for how to cut the cost of your break even more . . .
BUDGET: A set amount per day means you won’t blow all your cash at once.
You could use the envelope method and pop a cash amount in per day.
Think about what you’ll be doing, too.
Are the kids always asking for ice creams? Iceland now sells huge value packs. For example, get 25 rocket lollies for just £3 to take with you.
If it’s beer you spend on, pick up some of the Euro 2020 deals today. Asda has bundles with two 20-bottle packs of selected beers for £20. Tesco is doing 18 cans of Carling for £9.99 with a Clubcard — steal!
MEAL PLANNING: Big family? That means they’re going to eat their way through your budget. Instead, plan your menu down to the last snack and batch-cook before you go.
One Saver told me she cooks an extra meal every Sunday for a month before her holiday. So, when she goes, there are four freezer meals ready that can just be heated up.
For some top recipes, check out Suzanne Mulholland, aka The Sun’s Fabulous columnist The Batch Lady, at thesun.co.uk/who/batch-lady.
BED DOWN IN PRICE: Taking your own bedding and towels shaves about a tenner off at a holiday park.
Also, think about highchairs and cots, which can cost £15 per time when hired in a park. Aldi is selling a £49.99 travel cot very similar to a £175 JoJoMamanBebe one that could be a good option for multiple trips.
Hiring a car? Bring your own satnav as that cost will sting you at the hire desk.
DRIVE WISE: Plan your route and check petrol prices first. Usually I’d recommend coming off the motorway, but you can visit a Welcome Break service station and spend £10 on food or drinks and get 10p off per litre.
