R&R’s Tips – Saving Money on Your Holiday

Globe-Trotters

Hello, Bonjour, Hola, Guten Tag, Aloha, so many ways to say 'Hi'!


Welcome to Globe-Trotters, we're Rebecca & Rhys and we love to travel! We met in 2013, married in 2014 and during those years, and to present day, we've taken every opportunity possible to see the world. Although we both had a travel passion before we met, Globe-Trotters is here because we want to share with you 'our journey', just the 2 of us. We also aim to bring you tips, fashion and gadget info and anything else 'travel' we feel might be of use.


We hope you love the site, but if you have any questions, if there's anything you'd like us to feature or you simply want to get in touch, please don't hesitate to do so because we'd love to hear from you.


Happy Travelling, Love Rebecca & Rhys xx

R&R’s Tips – Saving Money on Your Holiday

Hotel Mini BarWhen we book a break away we usually shop around to find ourselves the best deal, so why rack up extra costs on holiday whilst you’re there? With a little thought you can save yourself money on some of the hidden costs leaving you more to spend on the things you love!

– Hotel Internet charges can be extortionate, swap this for the internet in a local coffee shop, usually free of charge and often just as fast as that in the hotel.

– Unless you’ve got money to burn, hotel mini bars are expensive! There are a couple of things you can do to save money though, buy refreshments from a local supermarket to drink in your hotel room or alternatively go to a local bar around the corner where you can soak up the local atmosphere too!

– Charges for using your mobile phone abroad – if there’s one tip we have picked up it’s to turn off your data roaming! We’ve been hit by a charge of £7 for having left it switched on for only 2 minutes in St Lucia! To save money, ask your provider about the cost of internet bundles, or look at purchasing a local SIM card. Failing that, put your phone down and actually enjoy your holiday!

– Currency – unless you have no choice, don’t purchase your currency at the airport. The rates offered are usually uncompetitive in comparison to most other places. You’ll probably find that pre-booked online currency exchange is your best option.

– Lastly, if you really have to make an international call, try using skype instead of any other phone.
