Having cheap fun in the sun with Sports Direct
LONDON, June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
We may have had a coupled of warm-ish days but that is nothing compared to going
abroad for a week or two and basking in the heat and sunshine, but if you’re trying to
save and haven’t yet booked a holiday don’t panic. SportsDirect.com
[http://www.sportsdirect.com ] show you how you can save on your holiday and suitcases
First all the holiday itself. It might be easier to nip into your local travel agents
and aske them to find you the best deal, however chances are you can find it yourself for
a lot less. Websites such as Teletext, Lasminute.com and onthebeach.co.uk usually have
some great deals on European holidays and you can search for hotels, flights and transfers
all in one place so you can price it up exactly on the site and compare it to others.
When choosing the airport obviously search for ones local to you but also check ones
further away and the London airports. Sometimes you find that the flights are cheaper from
different airports and if you can find a cheap deal on the Megabus or National Express bus
then it could mean that you make a decent saving.
If you can, try to make do with hand luggage only. Charges for checked baggage does
differ from airline to airline but the charges can be anything from GBP11 to GBP35 per
suitcase, so if you’re trying to save money opt for hand luggage. Always make sure that
you weigh your suitcase before you leave for the airport though as the fees for overweight
hand luggage can come with a hefty price tag, Rynair charge up to GBP140 (on selected
routes), a surprise you don’t want to experience. Cabin friendly suitcases are also
cheaper to buy, SportsDirect.com have a wide range with prices starting from GBP8.99 for a
The added bonus of booking a holiday online is that you have the option to check-in
online before you go. This means you don’t incur a booking fee and all you have to do is
fill in your passport details online and print off your e-ticket. Although the booking fee
is only about GBP10 per person it still saves you that bit extra.
The main thing to keep in mind is that you can find some fantastic deals – you just
have to be willing to search for them!
