Although the world is a little topsy turvy, going on a weekend break or having a proper holiday is still possible and what’s more is that you can actually save some money while you are having some relaxing time off. And during times like this, everyone wants to find a way to cut back on their spending while still being able to get away for a while and really make the most of their time off.

A stay at Nelspruit Lodge is going to be one of the best holidays you will have this year. A lodge situated in the heart of Nelspruit, close to some of the very best attractions that the city and its surrounds have to offer, when you stay here you will have plenty of things to do and a lot to see and enjoy.

Nelspruit, especially at this time of the year, has a lot to offer. The season is beginning to warm up and some colour is coming back to the city, making it the perfect time to plan a holiday trip. And if you are feeling the squeeze like many South Africans are, whether you are travelling for work or for pleasure, here are a few tips that you can use to save money while still making the most of your time away.

Holiday Money Saving

  1. Set and Stick to a Budget

With the prices going up on such a consistent basis, it can be difficult to budget for your trip. Not only do you have to worry about the actual accommodation price but you also have to factor in food and fuel, and a little money to treat yourself with. Creating a budget and trying to stick to it as closely as you can, can result in you saving money.

  1. Shop around a little

Accommodation prices are constantly changing as specials come and go and often the changes are dependent on the time of year that you are travelling. If you are not travelling on business and you are able to decide when you’d like to have your break, you can shop around for a good price for your accommodation.

  1. Have a shorter stay

Week long stays are costly but if you don’t have to have a long holiday, you can always cut back on how much you end up paying out by having a shorter break and thus save money.

  1. Opt for self catering

Cooking your own food is going to end up being a lot cheaper than buying food from a takeaway place or a restaurant every day that you are on holiday. There are plenty of self-catered accommodation options out there, and if you make your own food, you get to explore locally produced ingredients.

  1. Leave the drinks

Minimising how much alcohol you drink while on holiday, especially the drinks available in your hotel room, is a huge expense that you can save on if you just cut back on how much you drink. That’s not to say you shouldn’t still indulge in a sundowner or two, you are on a break after all.
