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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
