Directline Holidays has revealed a selection of trade secrets to help people to save money on their holidays. These can not have come at a better time, with many people considering whether they can afford to take holidays at the moment. Their first tip is that low cost airlines are in the process of releasing their 2012 flights and purchasing flights early can be the cheapest way to get a place on a popular route.
The online agent will put the flights together with a well priced hotel so that early bookers can get a good deal on accommodation and transportation. They also explain that the Russian currency is very strong against the pound at the moment, this has an effect because many European holiday providers use Russian operators and they can get higher prices because of the weak pound. This means that British Holiday Companies may not get such good availability on bookings and prices are likely to increase and so by booking now, it is likely that perhaps this price hike can be avoided.
With the Olympics pushing up the prices of holidays all over Europe it is likely that flights will be more in demand and booked up at higher prices. It is expected that visitors to London may tour around Europe as well which is why this price hike is likely to not just be restricted to the UK. Lastly the potential increase in flight tax from 29th November could have a big effect on all flight prices as well as potential fuel increase and air passenger duty and so it could be wise to book now and avoid all of this.
