How to travel in luxury without spending a fortune


A vacation filled with private jets, luxury
accommodations, champagne and fancy food does not
have to be a far-fetched fantasy. There are ways you
can travel like a millionaire without having to put a
mortgage on your house, sell a piece of family land or
sabotage your credit score. , Africa’s No. 1
online hotel booking portal has four travel tips to add a
little grandeur to your next getaway without breaking
the bank.
Travel in the off-season
A perfect way to travel like a millionaire is to stay
in luxury hotels or resorts during off-peak seasons.
Vacationers who visit during the off-season stand to
save a lot at idyllic locales. The views are the same,
the accommodations are the same, but the prices are
most usually slashed in half.
From mid-January through April, rooms are usually
cheaper than mid-April through Dec. So, unless you are
set on splurging on a particular holiday, it pays to visit
when rates are more affordable.
Consider countries where the dollar is worth more.
Take a trip to exotic locations in South America, Africa,
Asia or India rather than the United States, Canada or
Europe. These location have food, attractions and
accommodations that typically cost a lot less and the
exchange rate will usually fall in your favor.
The luxury experience in these areas are not only
superb as the environs are picturesque, you also get to
experience opulence at minimal cost.
Hunt for resort apartments
Instead of booking a fancy luxury hotel where you will
have to pay for room service, food or laundry, rent an
apartment. The process of finding and renting a resort
apartment is not a tedious one, as there are a list of
resort-hotels on that offer this type of
accommodation for the destination you have in mind.
At a good resort, you can go shopping for groceries
and cook your own favorite meals at a cheaper rate
and if you must dine out, there will be numerous
restaurants, coffee shops and around the area. You get
to save a whole lot of money while doing this.
Schedule your flights properly
The cost of transportation is a huge item on any
traveler’s list as it is one of the most expensive things
to consider on any trip, including luxury vacations.
Fortunately, there are ways to minimize costs! Like
your favorite high street store, airlines have periods
when they carry out promotions. Try and book your
flight around those periods.
For destinations that are not very popular, airlines tend
to slash prices during off-peak season, giving you an
opportunity to take advantage of variations in ticket
Finally, going on a luxury trip does not imply that you
must travel first-class. Instead, buy an economy ticket,
save some money and spend it having much more fun
on your luxury trip.
