This is according to Sunday Times journalist Chris Haslam and backed up by the Post Office’s holiday spending barometer, which shows that day-to-day holiday costs in Spain have dropped by 30% this year compared to last, great news for cash-strapped tourists.
One of the key ways to save money on holiday is to go self-catering. It may seem more expensive than hotels on the face of it, but because you have the freedom to buy food at local markets and supermarkets and enjoy cooking and eating at home, your restaurant bills will tumble. If you have the use of a private of shared pool, you and the family can have days enjoying the sunshine, pool and facilities without spending a penny or searching for something to keep the kids entertained. This removes a lot of the excess costs and inconvenience of hotel living and will make your holiday more relaxed as well as cheaper.
We have a brilliant selection of self-catering accommodation in Spain on our website, from large villas with pools which are great for groups to modest apartments suitable for couples or families on a budget. Don’t delay though, our properties are booking up fast and as the journalist in the Sunday Times rightly says “tour operators are gleefully reporting a surge in late demand. You could hang on for a late, late deal but to be in with a chance of getting what you want rather than what nobody else wanted, the time to book is right now.” To save you the trouble of searching, you can email email@example.com with your dates, the area you want to be in, the number of people and your budget and we can send you a list of properties which are still available and suit your needs!
