How To Book A Beach Holiday Under £200pp

To book a beach holiday for less than £200 per person, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Here are our top tips for booking a holiday within your budget.

Keep looking! Holiday prices can change all the time, depending on a range of things including the cost of the flights, popularity of the hotel, time of year, current sales, etc. This means you should always keep an eye out for the latest deals. You can either sign up to the latest holiday deals with us at, or with other holiday companies, to see the latest offers as and when they come out. You never know when you might find that perfect holiday within your £200 budget!

Taking a holiday in quiet periods is also another way to keep the cost down. Holiday companies, airlines and hotels all push up prices during the peak school holiday period meaning that the average cost of a holiday can skyrocket. If you can, try and travel during off peak times to bring the cost down.

Many top holiday operators now offer some sort of deposit scheme, so you can book in advance and pay off the cost of your holiday in installments. If you're stretching your holiday budget to £200, this is a great way of carefully planning. Budgeting just £20 a month over the course of 10 months can mean you could be enjoying more holidays. And what's £20 a month? Making your lunches instead of buying them. Cutting out two coffees a week each month? Taking advantage of deposit schemes can certainly help you to budget carefully if you do need to stay within budget.

Family Holidays Under £200pp

If you've got the family to think about for your next holiday, sharing a room or apartment can certainly help bring the cost down to less than £200 per person. Most hotels in the popular resorts will cater for families with either adjoining rooms or family rooms with pull out sofa beds. Especially when you've just got a one bedroom apartment for a family of four, this can definitely help to bring the cost of your holiday down.

Also bear in mind the cost of eating out for your whole family. While you also want to enjoy your holiday, and so limit the amount of cooking you do, having a self catering apartment can mean some nights you can splash out a little and eat out, while other nights you can eat in and save some money. This can be especially useful if the little ones need to go to bed early and you want to eat at different times.
