Nobody likes paying more for something than they have to, so why would someone pay full price for a cottage holiday? I’ve made it my mission to find out the best way to save as much as possible – here’s what I found.
Leave it late
As the clock ticks down, cottage owners get nervous… understandably none of them want to end up without guests. Use this to your advantage; hold your nerve and wait until the last possible moment to book your trip, you’ll find that prices are often dropped right down at the last minute. The best time to book is a day or two before you want to go. Take a look at this weekend and see what I mean: deals this weekend.
If you’re anything like me you’d never walk into a shop and buy a big purchase like a TV the moment you lay eyes on it. I like to do my research to find one that best meets my needs. I also want to get it for the best price I can find, often this means trawling through 100s of websites. Happily you don’t need to do this with your cottage holiday: Snaptrip has over 60,000 properties from the UK’s best cottage companies in one place.
Try different dates
Sometimes you are restricted when you need to book a cottage, perhaps it is someone’s birthday or a special anniversary. However, if you’re just looking to getaway for a change of scene you might find that you can save £100s by tweaking your dates a little. Sometimes just switching between a Friday, Saturday or Sunday can make a huge difference in what you pay. To make life easier we’ll show you prices for the date you requested and for one nearby*
Take some friends with you
Holiday cottages come in all shapes and sizes. You can find petit little gems for you and a friend, at a great price but why not widen your horizons. Take a group of friends on your adventure and not only will they fill your holiday with fun, the’ll also help you pay the bill. I’ve seen some amazing grand houses which become cheaper than a budget hotel when you divide the costs between a group.
