We’re well and truly into autumn now, and while the mild temperatures are proving a confusing time for our transitional wardrobes, you won’t be alone in mourning the end of summer.


One way to beat those end of summer blues is to plan some adventures for next year. Booking a break now will give you something to keep you going through the dark winter months.


Funds a bit stretched? Want to enjoy great travel on a budget? Take a look at the following tips for saving money on your 2019 holiday.


Save money by booking early


A last-minute deal can be a great thing if you suddenly find yourself with some time off and the money to go somewhere, but this isn’t always the best way to score a cheap travel deal. By booking your holiday well in advance, you get to benefit from some fantastic deals that offer £100s off the total cost of your holiday.


Early birds can benefit from some great discount codes that will save you a lot of money off your total price. A TUI discount code could help you grab some great savings, and there are some amazing travel deals around at the moment to tempt you. Following the end of summer, business can be quieter for travel companies, which is why there are plenty of bargains to be found as they try to make sales during this quiet period.


The benefits of booking early


There are many benefits that come with booking your summer holiday now. At this point, you’ll only need to pay the deposit for your holiday, which can be as low as £49 per person. You’ll have longer to save and pay off your holiday, making it more manageable for your finances. More and more companies are even offering monthly payment plans which makes it even easier to budget for your dream holiday.


Booking your 2019 holiday now also means you’ve got your pick of hotels. Availability will be at its highest, so you’ve got a better chance of staying in a top resort than if you were to book later down the line. You’ve got more time to browse to find your ideal hotel, instead of having that last-minute panic of having to choose somewhere.


It’s also worth noting that long-haul flights rarely come down in price, so it’s to your advantage to book in advance. If you need some inspiration on where to go, take a look at some bucket list destinations and start planning your next trip.


Make additional savings before you jet off


While summer 2019 might seem like a long way off, you’ve now got plenty of time to save money to make your holiday the best yet. Keep an eye out for the best exchange rates to help your spending money stretch further. Now is a great time to download some budgeting apps designed to help you save a little more each month. The pennies will soon add up and you’ll have the money you need to enjoy a great trip.


As the temperatures dip and the nights get darker sooner, now is a great time to think about your 2019 holiday. Book now to save money while giving yourself something exciting to look forward to in the new year.
