Be your own UK holiday travel agent in 2020
Last year we wanted to go somewhere different in the UK, in a house that could take four adults, and we didn’t want to have to drive anywhere, so the house needed to be central, in a town or village and near to a beach.
Our local UK holiday travel agent threw her hands up in despair and finally found a deal…£3,500 for a fortnight and it didn’t have everything we wanted!
So we did it ourselves.
A little bit of detective work on Airbnb, then arranging our transport independently meant we could tailor the uk holiday to our specifications and budget. We had exactly what we wanted, for less than half the price and it was fun & rewarding doing it ourselves.
If you can be flexible on dates and destination, book late
The later you leave booking the cheaper it could be.
