How to minimise the cost of your holiday

  • Avoid travel at peak times, i.e. Christmas, New Year and lunar New Year.
  • Take more friends with you! Larger parties lead to price reductions as many costs are shared;
  • Avoid single supplements by making sure your group comprises an even number of travellers;
  • Consider taking a more in-depth tour of one country rather than trying to visit too many countries in one trip. International flights between countries add cost. If you like one country, you can always go back to a neighbouring country next year!
