The day that you choose to fly determines the money that you will spend on your flight. Choose days that most people would not if you want to save up on money. Friday or Saturday are peak days so avoid them and instead go for days like Wednesday or Tuesday.
Another smart move is to book for your flight early. Using this together with off-peak days will give you a cheap trip. During the festive holiday you will find many flights booked if not all. it’s recommended to book 14 to 20 days before Christmas so you can save up on money that you can use to spend on souvenirs, foods, drinks and fun activities.

Travel insurance is recommended when traveling. It covers for your injuries, baggage protection and medical emergencies to mention a few, as you travel. Stay safe and one step ahead by getting yourself a travel insurance.
