Obtaining the best deals

The best deals are found by wise, knowledgeable and savvy consumers. Take your time to do your research. Find out what is available and when the best deals are offered. For example, the best holiday deals are available out of the main holiday season, often at short notice. Restaurants offer the best deals during their quiet days, which are usually during the winter months in January and February. Sundays are good days for bargain overnight stays in hotels and B&Bs.

If you have the time and inclination, set up a separate e-mail account and sign up to various discount and bargain sites. Check the deals regularly and if you see something you like, act quickly, as deals don’t tend to last long.
