Saving money on your trip to Tenerife
Tenerife is a wonderful place for a holiday. On just one island, you can experience dramatic mountain ranges, bountiful green rain forests, alien volcanic landscapes and beautiful coastlines.
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and is a firm holiday favourite for travellers from the rest of Spain, the UK, Scandinavia and Germany.
If you want to spend your holidays in this beautiful place, then you are reading the right article! Below you will find helpful tips for saving money on your trip to Tenerife, from flights to accommodation.
Tenerife has two airports, one in the north and one in the south. The southern airport is nearest the most popular resorts, Aquarius dive center and is the busiest of the airports. There are flights to destinations across the Canary Islands and Europe from both airports.
From the UK this includes all London airports, Manchester, Birmingham and many more. The easiest methods to save money on these flights is to ensure that you allow yourself to be flexible with your travel dates.
The best time to travel if you want to save is during the week, so try to avoid starting and ending your trip on the weekend. If you cannot avoid travelling during the busy periods, then another way to save is to make your bookings during the week. Many holidaymakers book their flights at the weekend, meaning that availability can fall and prices can go up. Make your bookings mid-week and easily save!
Airport parking can take a surprising chunk out of your holiday budget, especially if you do not book ahead. One of the easiest ways to save money on UK airport parking is to use a comparison website. These websites can help you find and compare the available options and filter to find exactly what you want.
Parkhero.co.uk is a great example. It allows you to filter your results by the type of airport parking, the customer rating, price and even by the airport terminal. For example if you are looking for Manchester Airport parking Terminal 1, then you simply choose it from the drop down menu in the comparison tool and enter your travel dates. The website will show you all the results and allows you to make your booking directly from the results page in less than 5 minutes. You do not need to make an account and are not charged a booking fee!
Tenerife is popular for package holiday deals and has the perfect dunny climate all year round, especially in the south of the island. The peak holiday season Is between February and Easter, as this is when the weather is at its best. If you plan your holiday around this period, then you can easily save money and avoid the peak season crowds.
Last minute deals are to be found and if you follow the same booking trips for accommodation as for finding cheap flights, you can make further savings. Booking mid-week is key, as prices are usually higher at the weekend. Rental properties can often be cheaper than staying in a hotel, but it is important to remember that some hotels offer full-board deals that work out cheaper than renting and eating out.
Follow the tips above and ensure that your trip to Tenerife doesn’t break the bank!
