AN EXPERT has revealed the mistakes that families make when booking holidays that could be costing them money.
Com o October half-term approaching, families may be looking for a chance to get away for a last bit of sun before winter arrives.
Contudo, they could be overspending on their trips, if they don’t follow the advice of the experts at Travel Lens.
They listed five things that families can do to save money when planning a holiday.
1. Don’t book on a weekend
Weekends are often seen as the best time to both plan and book holidays.
Contudo, the more people are looking at flights online, the more prices are likely to increase.
If you’re wanting to save money, then opt to book a holiday on a Monday or Tuesday when demand is lower.
2. Compare airport prices
