Longing to travel and to save money while you are at? We've listed six travel hacks to help you save! 

Book your flights on ‘discount days’

Tuesdays are usually the best days to book your flights. Most of the time flights are discounted 50 days before departure and the cheapest flights are usually between 18h00 and midnight.

Lay-overs save you money

Many people hate the idea of a layover in another country, even though its way cheaper than a direct flight. Save money and take the opportunity to experience another country, even if it’s just for a few hours.

Duffel luggage bags are way better than rolling luggage bags

The duffel bag is way more flexible and can carry more luggage than the rolling luggage bags. If you’re having a hard time letting go of the rolling luggage bag, there are many duffel bag options with hidden wheels.

Book sandwich seats for a comfy flight

If you are travelling as a pair, book a window seat and the seat next to the aisle on a three-seater. Chances are that nobody would want to sit in the middle, unless you’re on a full flight, allowing you a comfortable flight to your destination.

Packing for your trip

Rolling your clothing items is the best way to save luggage space. Rolling also allows you more space to pack fragile items and prevents you from throwing out your entire luggage back to find your favourite t-shirt.

Book Early

When you book your trip early, you have so much more time to prepare. Map your journey and make sure you have whatever you need for every destination you will be visiting. Booking early `eliminates last minute panic. If you’re planning a trip to South Africa book your vehicle with campervan South Africa to avoid disappointment.

Always mark your luggage as ‘fragile’

This will ensure that all your luggage is handled with extreme caution and nothing gets damaged in between flights.
