How to Holiday Like a Celebrity (Without Paying Celebrity Prices)
For years we have all been infatuated by the celebrity lifestyle, peering through the looking glass at the luxuries that famous personalities splash out on. Extravagance goes hand in hand with the celebrity lifestyle, as Jay-Z exampled with a bar bill racking up a cool $91,000, including an $11,000 tip.
While the normal person doesn’t have pockets as deep as the rapper-producer, that doesn’t mean that we cannot treat ourselves with equal amounts of luxury. Well, we probably won’t be able to help ourselves to 40 bottles of champagne, but the five-star lifestyle is not completely out of the question.
All-Inclusive, All Exclusive
Package holidays are a firm favourite amongst families looking to find the biggest bang for their buck and there are some incredible deals to be found. If you are in the fortunate position where you can travel during school term times, there are some fantastic savings to be had. Prices can increase by up to 800% during peak times, so you will do well to book your vacation outside of August.
Some of the more exotic locations in the world stay warm all year round, so you don’t have to clamber to get on the beach during peak times to enjoy the sun. In places such as the Caribbean, Spain and the Greek islands, September weather is still bikini weather for less than half the price – and you have considerably fewer children running around the pool!
Of course, living it up doesn’t necessarily mean throwing money at a swish five-star hotel. Many of us, celebrities included, much prefer the simpler things in life and there is no shame in that. Holiday parks present a much cheaper alternative to jumping on a plane, especially for families with children.
Caravans have always been popular and we don’t just mean that types that hook up to the back of the car. Caravans come in all shapes and sizes and the best of them actually rival the luxury that is found in extortionate holiday resorts. You can see this website for an example of a caravan park with static homes the incorporate all of the features of a hotel and more.
Wouldn’t we just love to own our very own holiday home in the Caribbean? While that might be out of the question, a holiday home is not completely out of the equation for those with more modest incomes.
Renting a holiday home for a week or so can be a cheap alternative to finding your own slice of luxury. While you will have to fend for yourself in terms of food and drink, there is the opportunity to save a good deal on the amount you would be expected to pay for hotels in similar areas. Websites such as Air BNB have opened the door, as it were, for homeowners to put their homes on the short-term accommodation market for holidaymakers.
Self-Catering/Bed & Breakfast
When we book a holiday, we don’t want to have to fend for ourselves, but that doesn’t mean that we have to continue the monotony of cooking the same meals as we would at home. Bed & breakfast options at least cover you for the most important meal of the day, meaning you are left to only find your own lunch and dinner (as well as drinks and snacks).
If you have the facilities, make use of any cooking appliances that you have as this will save money instead of constantly eating out every night, and you get total control over your menu. Even if you have to make your own sandwiches, do you care if you are doing so in paradise?
