The advantages of self catered holidays…
If you’re planning your main 2013 holiday, the chances are you’ll be looking for the best value break for your money. And a common dilemma for holidaymakers looking for the most cost-effective holiday is which board type to go for.
Some holidaymakers religiously travel on a self-catering basis in order to keep their costs to a minimum while others are all-inclusive converts – but which will actually work out cheaper for you?
With self catered you can:
You can control your food and drink costs
Whether you want to keep healthy snacks in the cupboard for the kids, or like to have a glass of wine or two with your evening meal, travelling on a self-catering basis will allow you to buy all of your items for less in local shops, markets or supermarkets – so you can enjoy guilt-free treats. Travelling on this basis is also a great choice if someone in your group has a special dietary requirement.
You’re not restricted by a timetable
Want to eat breakfast at midday? No problem. Or perhaps the kids like to eat their main meal at 5pm but you prefer to wait until they are in bed. Self-catering accommodation offers you the flexibility to come and go as you please and to set your own holiday timetable.
This flexibility can also help you to budget as you can choose to nip back to your holiday home for lunch after a morning of exploring or make a packed lunch before you set off.
So, when will you book yours?
