All inclusive accommodation

All inclusive accommodation can add that level of luxury that you may want when you go away on holiday. It can take the stress out of looking for places to eat and spending a fortune on food and drink when you are away. If you are going on an all inclusive holiday you may find you do not need nearly as much spending money as you would if you were self catering.

All inclusive holiday resorts can be ideal if you are travelling with children, as often snacks and soft drinks are all included as well as some alcoholic beverages and meals so you will not have to keep forking out for burgers and chips.

Obviously all inclusive holidays do cost more than self catering, but when you work out the saving you make on food and drink you may actually find that the whole holiday comes in at less.



Travelling the world

The world is such a massive place and many of us only get to experience such a small part of it. For some of us that is fine and we are quite content but for others, they may wish to get out there and travel around a bit to see what else the world has to offer.

Travelling around the world can bring a massive sense of adventure and can help people not only learn about other cultures and the way other people live but also help them learn more about themselves.

If you are open minded and accepting then you can make a lot of new friends by travelling around the world and are most likely to be able to get close to many of the locals in the areas that you are staying in.

It is not cheap travelling around so you may have to save up for a while and possibly try and find work whilst on your travels, but if you are happy to stay in hostels etc then you can do it on a relatively low budget.

Safety when travelling abroad

When you travel abroad you may need to be more aware of your safety than in this country. Some countries unfortunately have high rates of crime and often tourists are targeted as they don’t know the areas or what to look out for.

When travelling abroad, try and book as much of your travel in advance as possible. Even booking taxis from a reputable company could put your mind at ease that not only should you be safe but that you will not be ripped off if you have already agreed a price. When venturing out of your complex you can always ask the reception staff of areas in which you should or shouldn’t visit and if there are any local scams that you should be aware of. Often just doing a bit of research on the internet before you go will give you a good indication of what to look out for.


Places to stay in Paris

Paris is a very popular destination for tourists due to the landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the beautiful French cafés and restaurants not to mention the hours of great shopping and places of interest to visit.

When booking a holiday in Paris you have a wide variety of places to stay at. There are some hostels or hotels that are relatively cheap to stay in if you are just looking for a place to get your head down, but if you are after something a little bit more special then why not book in to one of Paris’s top ten hotels.

The Maison Souquet Hotel in Paris is one of the favourites amongst tourists visiting the City of love.

With the average id week stay costing about £250-£300 a night, it is certainly not cheap but worth every penny. The Maison Souquet Hotel won the Travellers’ Choice Award 2016 after being voted for by hundreds of people. Decorated in beautiful artwork and showcase the finer side of Paris, there really is nowhere quite like it.


Save money on travel

If you are looking to travel and want to save a bit of money then I have a few handy tips for you that could give you a bit more spending money that you had planned.

You may not believe how much money you can save by travelling at different times of the year or even different times of the day. Most travel companies such as airlines, bus operators and even the accommodation provider will often slash prices on certain days or months.

When I was recently looking to go abroad from the UK to Spain, I was amazed to find out that I could save a massive £40 per person on my flights by going 3 days earlier. This meant in total I would save £160 which would be a nice bit of extra money to take with us.

Many holiday websites will show prices available if you booked your holiday a few days or a week either side of your selected dates. My advice is to check these in detail and if at all possible, book with the lowest price you can.
