Making a holiday special on a tight budget

Many families struggle to keep up with the ever rising cost of an annual holiday, especially if you are restricted to school holidays. If you are wanting to go away but have quite a tight budget, then early planning is essential. You may be able to find a family member or friend that has a caravan or holiday home that you could borrow for a week which can often work out a lot cheaper than renting through a larger company. If you decide to book through a social media site etc, then be very careful in how you pay for your holiday as people have been duped in to sending money only to find there was never a holiday home for them to stay in.

In terms of activities, most children are more easily pleased than we think and a day on the beach is as good as a day at an expensive theme park. Camp fires on the beach is always a great idea to lift the mood and experience the great outdoors or a walk through the sand dunes, all of which cost nothing to do.

Either take food with you or find a large supermarket where you can stock up on food, to avoid having to fork out a lot of eating out every day.

Booking your honeymoon

There is nothing better after planning a wedding than being able to go off on an amazing honeymoon. Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful and puts a lot of pressure on a couple, so a honeymoon can be the perfect time to unwind and spend some quality time together that doesn’t involve discussing your guest list.

Planning where to go on your honeymoon will depend on what you want to do and what time of year you want to go. If for example you are planning a winter wedding but want to go on a honeymoon that is going to be hot then you may need to either book a holiday in the Caribbean or delay the honeymoon for a few months until spring time.

There are so many pre made honeymoon holidays you can chose but they do tend to put the prices up a little bit. You may be better just finding a holiday you like and then adding in trips or extras to make it even more special. This is often a cheaper way of getting the holiday you want whilst it still being a little different to a usual holiday.

Taking a dog with you on a camping holiday

It may seem like a nice idea to be able to take your pet with you when you go on a camping holiday but you do have to consider your options carefully before committing to taking them along. Firstly you need to consider how long the journey to and from your destination is going to be and what your dog is like at travelling. If the dog does not feel happy being in the car then it may not be a good idea to take them on an eight hour car journey.

If you are going to a seaside destination then you will need to check if dogs are allowed on the beaches. Some beaches restrict dogs altogether others may restrict dogs at certain times of the years or on parts of the beach.

If you are planning on going out for meals etc whilst on holiday then you need to think what you will do with your dog whilst you are out, it is not advisable to keep them inside the tent nor in a car, so unless you can take them with you, you may find that you are very restricted in what you can do.
