We’re all looking for a great deal when it comes to booking our holidays, and what’s better than a cheap holiday deal? Well, that would be one where you don’t have to compromise on quality either. When you decide to book a holiday it can sometimes seem like a daunting task, with all the agents and deals out there it’s hard to know where to begin, let along where to find the best deal.

2. Clear Your Cookies

The most simple hack out there is to make sure that before you conduct any searches you clear your cookies. Why? Well sites use live pricing and remember your searches, which means that the more people that are searching for a particular holiday the higher the price will be. So, if you search for the same holiday 6 times this will increase the prices shown.


3. Early Take Off

The most popular flight times are generally the most convenient ones, like mid-morning or early afternoon. If you can be flexible on flight times and are prepared to take an early morning or late night flight you can potentially save hundreds of pounds.


4. Take Mid-Week Flights

Much like flight times, flight days can make a big difference to the cost of your holiday. Most people prefer to book a weekend flight as they won’t need to use as much annual leave. If you can be flexible and fly Tuesday – Thursday you can bag yourself a lower fare. If you're willing to be spontaneous, it could be even cheaper if you book last minute.


5. Go Off Peak

If at all possible try to avoid going away at peak times like school holidays, bank holidays and the height of summer. Holidays are cheaper outside of these peak times and often the weather is just as nice as it is during them, so you won’t be missing out on any sunshine.
