Here are my tips to save you money on your next vacation.
1. Book as soon as possible
I was reading an article a few minutes ago that reminded us that to get the very best bargain on your next vacation you should be booking now. It says Summer might seem a long way off but having sun, sea and sand to look forward to could just take the edge of the harsh winter months. While last-minute deals often prove to be a bargain, booking early for summer 2013 could save you a bundle.(See full article by Clicking here)

4. Do not go where the Beckhams are going.
I see that David Beckham is taking his wife, Victoria, and their 4 children on an 11 day vacation. So what? I hear you ask. Well the thing that caught my attention was the price. According to the report (click here to read it in full) these 11 days are going to cost him a quarter of a million pounds. Yes that is right it is costing £250,000 or in American money $403,000.Frankly to me that feels wrong. Yes he has the money but to spend that amount for 11 days when there are so many who can’t even afford a meal or anywhere to live shows a real lack of compassion. The amount he is spending for half a day could rebuild our entire children’s home, equip it with better dormitories, a new kitchen a dining room. new equipment and have enough left over to cover the cost of education and food for our 80 children for a long time.

OK Get off your soap box Ray!
Sorry but I just needed to get that off my chest.
Eating in a fancy restaurant is lovely and I am sure it will be a part of your vacation but there is no need to eat out every day. If you are staying in a rent-free house through Christian House Sitters you will have a fully equipped kitchen and so you can prepare quick, tasty and easy meals at a fraction of the restaurant prices and then use some of the money you saved to have a few really special meals at a local restaurant.
God bless you,
