How To Save Money On Weekend Breaks

Last minute retreat or getaway? Couple's vacation for two? Just because you want to get away for a few days, even if you book and plan it last minute, doesn't mean you have to pay too much to enjoy your mini-retreat vacation. So, when planning for a weekend break, or simply going off on a whim, these are a few ways you can go about saving, when you want to learn how to save money on weekend breaks you are going to take.

Avoid peaks

Yes, during holidays or busy travel seasons, weekend retreats are costlier. So, if at all possible, plan around them. Book during a slow season, go to areas which are more remote, and find out when tourists are at home, so you can pay far less for the weekend break you greatly deserve and are ready to take. If you would like to get some estimates on hotel accommodation then comparehotelprices.co.uk is a good place to visit.

Drive  
If you can avoid flying, consider driving. With many fuel efficient vehicles, low cost prices for rentals, and nearby retreats you probably never knew about right outside your city or town, you can truly make the most out of your getaway, for far less than you might have anticipated.

Consider a bus
If you don't want to drive, bus or train is another way to travel; and, it is also typically far cheaper than flying. Further, if you travel by train or bus, you can really enjoy the scenery, and take in the sites you are going to pass along the way, to make the trip far more enjoyable when you need that much deserved break.

Carry-on 

If you do have to fly, consider a carry on rather than checking a bag. You will find that many airlines charge absurd rates for checking your bags. So, if you can fit it all into one bag, this is a simple way to really reduce your travel rates, and still enjoy the weekend you are going to spend away, if you are going to fly to the destination which you plan on visiting.

Consider packing your own snacks. You can also book all-inclusive travel deals, or use booking sites to find discount or special hotel pricing when you book. You don't have to spend too much to make the most out of the weekend break you are taking. When you are ready for some time off, whether traveling alone, with family, or a weekend break for two, these are some tips you can consider, so you really keep travel costs down.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
