When entrance fees, food and drink, and transport costs are taken into consideration, days out with the kids can seem like an expensive luxury.
But with a little forward planning, you can keep your days out costs to a minimum – and have fun without dreading your next bank statement.
Here are our tops tips on how to keep your days out costs down:
Look online for vouchers
So you can have this much fun for less
Do your homework
If you can’t find a voucher, take a look at your attraction’s site to see if you can buy cheaper tickets in advance.
You might also find money off vouchers for the day such as discounts on food and drink.
Take your own food and drink
The cost of snacks, drinks and lunch can soon spiral on a day out, so consider taking your own food and drink.
Pack healthy treats to keep the kids going too. Not only will you save money, the kids won’t be stuffed full of sugar.
Eat out for less
Or if you want to treat the family to a meal out, use online dining vouchers to get more for your money.
Pre-book your transport
If you are travelling by train, pre-book your tickets in advance to snap up the best fares. You’ll make savings by booking even the night before.
So, why pay more than you need to take the kids out during the school holidays? You can use the money you’ve saved to treat yourself – cheers
