How to Save Money Booking a Holiday to Javea
Javea is a great place to select for a holiday. It has a vibrant, welcoming culture and plenty of great beaches to enjoy during the long, warm months. The town is also bustling with activities and there are plenty of places to eat and bars to keep you busy for weeks. Unfortunately this also makes it a very desirable destination for people from all over Europe and the rest of the world. As such, it does not offer the ‘cheap and cheerful’ accommodation found in other resort towns on the coast. Because of this, it is pretty important to take care and try to keep costs at a reasonable level.
If you are wise while booking your holiday you can save a great deal of money so that you have more to spend on your actual holiday. The following are a few tips that will help you get cheaper holidays to Javea.
One of the first things you can do to help reduce the price of holidays in Javea is book just a bit off from the peak season. During the peak tourist season prices are always at their highest, but you can enjoy the almost the same weather at better prices if you book a few weeks before or after the peak season. In Javea this means thinking about booking a holiday after mid-September or before the season starts in April or May. The weather is generally still warm during these months and everything will be cheaper from hotels to flights.
Another way to save some money is by putting some thought into where you want to stay. If you are younger a hostel may be a good choice, whereas older adults will find that choosing an individual hotel instead of a chain hotel will often mean spending less. You will also save money if you choose to stay a bit outside of the town by choosing a hotel that is located in a area that is outside of one of the main beach and village area’s.
Much of Javea’s accommodation is not hotels or camping, but instead private homes and apartments, there are very large numbers of both available, but , even so, during peak periods there is little available, so this is another reason to select out of season periods or book very early. The other way to save on accommodation is to spend a lot of time shopping around online to find the best deal.
Booking early (or sometimes at the very last moment) is an effective way of reducing costs, the earlier you book flights, car hire and accommodation the cheaper it tends to be. Booking car hire is now very much like booking a ‘no frills’ flight. Booking 6 or even 8 months in advance can save you 50% or more, compared to booking a month before you travel.
You should also not undervalue the high street travel agent, they can still offer real bargains. To survive they have had to adapt, and you may find even better deals than those available on travel comparison sites.
