How to save money when travelling this spring break

14 April 2022

The cost of living may be at an all-time high, but why should that mean missing out on a well-timed road trip this spring break?

With the right knowledge and a little help from us, you can plan and enjoy a springtime getaway that works for your needs and budget. Discover how you can save money when travelling this spring with our helpful guide.


Set a budget and track your spending

A budget break means managing your daily expenses. Luckily with the plethora of information available across the web, you can set a realistic budget that complements the destination and duration of your trip.

When making a budget, be sure to include funds for entertainment, food and travel, and make an extra effort to stick to it. Knowing how much you need in advance can take a huge weight off your shoulders so you can really enjoy your spring break.


Book those days out before you travel

Scheduling a few days out at the many attractions that are accessible throughout the UK is a must for getting to know your chosen destination. Whether you’re travelling for just a few days or spending a whole week away from home, booking your days out in advance will leave you with less to budget for from day-to-day.

Many attractions offer fantastic advance rates, which meaning entry at a discounted price. Signing up for memberships – i.e. with the National Trust or English Heritage - can also give you great access to a range of historic houses and gardens not just during spring but all year round for the amount you spend on a fancy coffee every month.


Hunt down the deals that give you more

As well as saving money on days out and other attractions, you can access the many deals and vouchers available via Roadchef.

From 20% off car journey essentials that keep the kids entertained at WHSmith to free muffins when you purchase any regular hot drink at the Fresh Food Café, these deals, vouchers and discounts are the perfect fuel for a family on the go.
