HOW TO SAVE ON YOUR 2020 HOLIDAY TRIPS

Plan ahead

Spontaneous trips are good but nothing beats planning your vacations ahead of time. This gives you enough time to save for your spendings and budget your expenses. Be sure to check the Philippines calendar 2020 we made above for you to better plot those trips.

Research 

Don’t just settle on one blog or travel tip before your getaway. The secret to fun, hassle-free and inexpensive vacation is research. With this, you’ll get to know even the tiniest detail of the place you plan to visit. Find out the best places to eat and low-cost rooms but with high-quality service

Wait for the Seat Sale

Why book an expensive flight when you can get it at Piso Fare promos of airlines? Most airlines offer cheap fare flights to any destinations. It’s just a matter of perfect timing and a whole lot of patience because when booking during the promo period, some sites tend to lag. 

Travel with a Group

Most of the time, traveling by groups saves a lot of money because you get to split the bill every time.
