Sometimes booking with a travel agent is cheaper. Sometimes booking your own holiday is, but one thing is for sure. Booking your own holiday does give you a lot more flexibility & control of your own holiday. But it also comes with some risks too.
This October Half Term self-catering deal comes in at under £150pp based on a family of five including transfers, flights & accommodation. Read on to see how you can package this up yourself.
STEP ONE : Easyjet Flights £29 return, London Luton to Barcelona. October Half term dates for some parts of the country including Leicester. Found via Skyscanner.
PLUS if you’re booking with Easyjet, you can also save using their hands-free upgrade.
STEP TWO: Book an apartment with Airbnb for £60 per night for a family of four & get £25 off your first stay by signing up with this link>
Or book a stay in a hotel. Use my TripAdvisor hack to get the best price. Searching with TripAdvisor has often given me a better deal than going direct to booking sites like Expedia, or Hotels.com.
STEP THREE : Remember that booking your own holiday will leave you with out ATOL protection. Ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all eventualities, since many don’t cover flight cancellations or strikes as standard.
STEP FOUR : Then remember to add on the “extras” like airport transfers, airport parking & allow for food expenses.
This list I created will help you plan out your holiday & keep to budget. It’s FREE to download. I only ask that you share it with credit please.
And if you can’t get away this October, why not make the most of Easyjet releasing it’s Spring/Summer flights this September. Read my post to find out more>
STEP FIVE : Plan what you’re going to do when you reach Barcelona. Some ideas from our Family Holidays Club members include using the hop-on-off bus to get around, visiting the famous football grounds, take a tour around the Sagrada Familia or even ride the Cable Cars !
