If you are going away this half term, now is the time to act to make sure you aren’t wasting money unnecessarily.

Save 146 pounds by pre-booking airport parking

Save 191 pounds on travel insurance


Save over 130 pounds on car hire

The difference between hiring from the terminal on arrival or through using price comparison to book in advance can easily exceed 130 pounds on a medium sized family car. Booking earlier than that will save you even more cash.

You will often find that smaller cars are the most popular options, so it’s worth having a look at larger cars – you might get one for less than a small hatchback if demand for small cars is high.

Save 165 pounds on holiday money

Whatever you do, don’t buy holiday money at the airport as you’ll generally have to pay commission and will get poorer exchange rates.

It’s also worth looking at more than just high street banks and travel agents to compare as there may be cheaper options out there, particularly with online services.
