How To Save Money: Cheap Days Out
Updated: Dec 11, 2019
With the Easter holidays just around the corner and many schools taking a two-week break, planning a family day out can often be expensive. On average parents fork out £87 on a day out, with the most popular days out including a jaunt to the seaside, visiting family and friends in a different city, trip to the countryside, visiting a museum or going to a theme park.
So, it pays to have a couple of savvy ways to spend less when having fun with the family.
Timing is key
If you book in plenty of time, many attractions across the UK offer reduced. So start planning your adventure well and advance and look closely ticket details to see if you can pick yourself up a bargain.
Bring the Whole Crew
Another way to save on attraction entrance fees is to link up with another family or two and book as a group. For example, at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, groups of 10 or more visitors can get some fantastic discounts.
Save with a Clubcard
One of the cheapest ways to entertain kids is to spend your Clubcard vouchers on days out. For example, with a Tesco Clubcard, you can effectively get them for a third of the normal price. This is because 100 Clubcard points are only worth £1 if you use them in-store.
Free Museums & Galleries
If you are into culture, you’re in luck! Since 2001, entry to state museums is free and nowhere has a better concentration of them than London. But you can also find free Museums and Galleries across all regions of the UK and they cover everything from art to science.
Make Your Ticket Last
At some attractions such as the Deep, in Hull, they offer tickets that allow you, and those with you on the day of your visit, to return to The Deep free of charge for a 12 month period at no extra cost!
Keeping children entertained on a budget may seem like a challenge but hopefully, the tips above will that whatever choose to do this spring doesn't break the bank.
