  • January. It’s all about stepping away from the stilton, tearing down the tinsel and failing to action your ‘get fit’ new year’s resolution. For a second year running. Seriously though, have you seen how busy the gym gets in January? No thanks. Instead, kick off the New Year by bagging yourself an amazing holiday deal with our top money saving hacks. Who knows, you may even save enough to splash out on that gym membership. Or just do yoga on the beach in Aruba instead. Ommmm…

    1. Fill up your basket

    We’ve all been guilty of wearing sale goggles before. Row after row of reduced clothes and we just can’t help ourselves. We panic buy and come back with all sorts, but none of it really fits, and it’s all last season’s stuff. Holidays are different. Browse exactly what you want before the sales, stick it in your basket and when the discount hits, it’s ready and waiting to be booked. That dream holiday to Thailand? Just a click away.

    2. Set your alarm clock

    It’s true – the early bird catches the worm, or the warm, when it comes to holiday bargains. If you want to bag the best of the best, make sure you’re poised at your mouse from January. We’ll continue to release great deals throughout the month, so keep checking up on our deals pages and you’ll be first in line for a sun-shaped saving.

    3. Use your filters

    Page after page of deals can look pretty intimidating. Where do you even begin? Filter your search and order holidays in terms of your priorities, whether that’s prices or departure dates. Don’t forget to bookmark our deals pages, and sign up for our emails too, so you’ll be the first to know when we’ve released money off codes and new offers. Ready, set, beach…

    4. Cash in with a low deposit

    Pair the Christmas crunch with the inevitable January blues and you’ll be left feeling two things – broke and miserable. Get something to look forward to with a spot of winter sun in Cyprus, or cheer yourself up by booking that summer holiday in Spain and scribbling it on your  new 2018 calendar. Plus, you don’t even have to have the full amount in the bank to book thanks to our low deposit scheme.  Instead, spot a bargain and secure it by paying just £75, and the rest eight weeks later.

    5.Bag a free kids’ place

    Having little ones can soon add up – especially after Santa’s visited. Make the most of our free kids’ places and take one of them away for free. Opt for family fun at one of our fab Holiday Villages, or seek sun, sea and slides with a trip to a SplashWorld – hotels that come with unlimited waterpark entry. Now, where are those goggles…
