When it comes to planning the ultimate Edinburgh getaway, we all love a good bargain. But that doesn’t mean you need to resort to extreme budget-holidaying antics, or sacrifice your comfort by booking into no-star accommodation to save a few quid. Book early. Book smart. And make the most of accommodation deals in 2016.
When it comes to taking advantage of accommodation deals in 2016, we all know certain times are busier than others. Easter, Christmas, summer holidays and half-term school breaks always book up fast. So if you have to book a holiday during these peak times, book before the end of February to get the holiday you want without having to compromise.
If you’re not bound to peak time holiday periods or school holidays, the world is (quite literally) your oyster. Set a date, find a deal and book. There’s no point in putting off the holiday of your dreams today in the hope of securing a better rate further on down the line. There are always great special offers available in Edinburgh … just take a few minutes to look.
Warm up to Winter
With the excitement of Christmas over, and nothing but a few more months of cold, rainy weather to look forward to, nothing beats those winter blues quite like a long-overdue sun-kissed holiday. For many of us, freezing mornings at the bus stop or scraping frost off our car in the icy morning is enough to send us scouring the web for a beach holiday in the Caribbean. But the best accommodation deals in 2016 may just be right here, right now. Mid week stays and Sunday night accommodation almost always ensures the best price.
Book Christmas in January
With the hustle and bustle of Christmas markets, marathon shopping, endless food and countless festivals, you’re probably glad this jolly holly-day only comes once a year. Especially in Edinburgh. The six-week Christmas festival transforms our beautiful Prices Street into a breath-taking winter wonderland. It’s why thousands of people flock to Scotland’s vibrant capital every year to be a part of the merriment. So if you’re looking for the best accommodation deals in 2016, especially over the festive season, it pays to book early. Taking advantage of internet special offers and early bird deals is still a great way to get a great deal. While waiting for a last minute booking is sure to mean only one thing – higher prices all round.
