David and I are blessed do what we love (be Christian illusionists) and to travel together – a lot! We really enjoy going to new places and having new experiences. However, a lot of people do not like to travel. This is in large part to the cost! It can be expensive to travel, so we thought we would toss out a few travel hacks to help with those expenses.

With economic times at one of their hardest, most people are looking to save cash wherever they can. One of the times that people expect to spend a lot of money is when they are booking their vacation. The great thing is, vacations do not have to cost the world as there are plenty of ways to get them for much cheaper than they are advertised in high street travel agencies. Finding discounted vacation packages might actually a lot easier than you might think.

The first thing to consider is the time of year that you will be travelling. If you do not have children, then there is no need to go in the school summer holidays. This is known as being the most expensive time of the year. If you can go a week or two after or before this time, then the chances are that you will be saving lots of cash. Discounts of up to 50% are achievable for people that are travelling outside of these periods.

The next thing to consider is last minute deals. A lot of airlines get cancellations. When these cancellations occur they want to fill these spaces as soon as possible. By looking online, you can quickly find last minute deals of this type that are at a huge discount. Again, the discounts offered can be up to 50%, but sometimes they are even more. It is certainly worth checking some last minute deals before booking a holiday.

Another thing to consider is where in the world you want to go. Some places are notoriously expensive. By looking at the cheaper places, you might have a chance to save lots of cash. Just because they are cheaper, does not mean that they will necessarily be any worse than anywhere else. Compare a few different locations to find the best deal.
