Getting around in the UK or going abroad seems to have gained a reputation for being quite pricey for a traveller.
Over time, we’ve gathered some top tips for travelling in luxury for a fraction of the cost, and we’re willing to let you in on the secret…
Booking in Advance
There’s a lot to be said for being prepared and booking in advance. You can often find luxury flights and hotels, as well as first-class train tickets at much lower prices if you book early.
For example, in the UK advance train tickets are released twelve weeks before the departure date and they often have a limited number of cheap fares.
This can reduce costs by about 43%, which would save you a pretty penny if you’re travelling from one end of the UK to the other by rail.
Plus, if you manage to snag first-class train tickets, you can make the most of perks like comfy seats, free Wi-Fi, complimentary snacks and drinks (including wine) and plenty of luggage space.
If you’re a frequent traveller abroad, joining a travel club could help you get access to some of the best deals for your luxury holiday.
Whether you’re looking for an all-inclusive break in the sun, a luxury cruise or a last-minute jaunt across the globe, you’ll be able to find exclusive deals that will help you save money without compromising on the luxuries.
These clubs usually come with membership fees, but it could be worth the money if you travel regularly or often find the need to book your breaks at short notice.
Empty Leg Discounts
A special occasion calls for a very special trip – so how about chartering your own private jet? Contrary to popular belief, this isn’t a pastime that’s only reserved for super-rich celebrities; it can be pretty affordable to fly on a private jet if you know where to look.
If you’re open to travelling somewhere new, look out for empty leg flights. To put it simply, they’re the return portion of a private jet flight that’s only been booked one-way.
Rather than having the jet return empty, these luxurious flights can be found with the prices cut drastically. Luxury travel for a fraction of the price – sign us up!
