The best travel offers from across the web
With travel offers on the internet travel is easier and more accessible than it’s ever been.
So if you’re looking for ways to spend less on travel, you can be sure that you’re not alone. We’ve gathered up some of the best travel discounts available on the web so you can save pennies while still seeing the world around you.
Discounts on travel, from UK railcards to international flights
If you travel around the UK regularly visiting friends and family, a Senior Railcard is an essential money-saving tool. For £30 a year – or £70 for a three-year pass – you’ll receive a third off standard and first class rail travel. This could mean significant savings if you make more than two or three lengthy journeys a year. To get a Senior Railcard, you simply need to be over 60 and have a UK driving license or a valid passport number. Alternatively, if you prefer to travel by coach, you can get a Senior Coachcard with National Express for £10 a year, for a third off prices if you’re aged 60 or over.
Anyone looking for the latest international flight offers should keep an eye on lastminute.com’s top flight offers page. Here, you’ll find huge discounts on flights to major global destinations – but watch out, many of these deals may require you to depart within the next couple of weeks. If you’re not constrained to a particular time period, British Airways’ last minute holidays are also worth checking out for great deals on flights and city breaks. And Travelzoo’s best flight deals page is not to be missed either, with impressive discounts on long and short haul flights.
How to find deals on hotels and car hire online
Searching for all-inclusive deals to exotic overseas destinations? CheapFlights.co.uk has a hand-picked travel deals page that displays the best deals for a particular destination or date. Perhaps surprisingly, Ryanair also has a special offers page, with a range of regularly-changing deals on car hire, airport shuttle fares, sightseeing deals and city breaks. So if you’ve got a Ryanair flight booked for your holiday, you could find special offers here to make your holiday even more affordable.
For travel vouchers and coupons, make sure you look at the latest Groupon deals too. Groupon travel deals offer up to 70% off at villas, hotels and luxury resorts around the world. However, you’ll need to act fast: often, there’s a limited number of deals up for grabs and they’re usually only available for between 24 and 48 hours.
Perhaps you don’t have a holiday coming up but want to look out for great deals in future. Become a member of the Telegraph’s Hand-Picked Travel club and you’ll be notified of discounts on luxury hotels and holidays around the world. These deals are exclusive to members and all you need to hand over is your email address – no joining fee necessary.
