Ironically, holidays can actually turn out to be a rather stressful experience! From trawling through endless price comparison websites for the best deal to being charged a nightmare excess baggage fee at the airport, getting to your holiday destination can sometimes be hard work.

Luckily we’ve compiled a list of 15 handy travel hacks that will make your journey a breeze, including advice on how to get the cheapest possible prices on flights and where the best place is to change all of your travel money. There’s no need to dread the planning and travel part of the trip anymore with these genius tips…

1. Fly on a Tuesday or Wednesday

If you’re planning to fly out somewhere this summer then you might want to reconsider which day of the week you head to the airport. There is a price drop of approximately 15-20% on flights leaving the airport on Tuesdays and Wednesdays! Always use a flight comparison site like SkyScanner to be sure that you’re getting the best possible deal.

2. Choose unsociable hours to fly

OK we know that nobody likes getting up at 03:00 to head to the airport, but it might just mean that you have a little extra spending money once you arrive at your destination. Red-eye flights can sometimes end up saving you a lot of money, so just make sure you have a cup of coffee on hand to get you through the early morning wake up!
