I know what you are thinking when you opened this article… its only October! Now, I know it is only October but as a Brit and a keen planner, I believe that booking trips away or even long holidays during the festive season needs to be done at the earliest convenience to ensure you get the best deal. Brits themselves are becoming more adventurous when travelling during the festive season and are booking exotic destinations to finally have a sunny Christmas day or opting for city breaks to top up the last of their Christmas spirit.
After travelling the globe for numerous years now I have gained valuable experience and knowledge when it comes to booking cheaper flights during school holiday and Christmas periods. Smart planning and flexibility are key for all travellers and holiday goers who are looking to save on their festive frolicking around the globe. Below are the top 10 destinations that we Brits find ourselves heading to and the top guys over at Kayak.co.uk collated some useful information to help us all save on our next Christmas trip.
You can see from the information above that they revealed that Bangkok was the number one travel destination that Brits head to for festive fun, which is closely followed by New York which you would believe to be number one with its ice skating in Central Park and top places to cure your Christmas shopping binge.
Just because it is Christmas, it doesn’t mean that we all have to pay top prices to get out of the country for the festive period. The guys over a Kayak have put together some useful information showing how much you can save by booking on different days of the week for each destination selected in their survey. For instance, the best departure day for Bangkok is on a Monday with a saving of 17% on airfare and even a huge 60% saving for flights to Sydney if you travel on the same day.
