You know the feeling. You want to go on a holiday but there must be no compromise. There’s no camping (hello, bugs?) to be had. There’s no way you’re doing it in a hostel for three weeks. Self-catering? You could cook at home. No. You daydream about the white sugary beaches and the chilled cocktails, the infinity pool and the 100-thread count sheets in the all-inclusive suite.

It’s luxury that you want, that you crave. And then you look at your bank balance and see the pitiful amount of cash that’s already reserved for the bills this month, and it becomes clear that your luxury holiday dreams may have to remain stashed in the back of your mind. Except, it really doesn't! Luxury holidays don’t have to mean luxury prices. Sure, you may need to give up the idea of a limousine transport for a standard airport transfer, but that doesn't mean it’s not a luxury to have someone else drive you to your hotel. There are plenty of ways that you can make your budget stretch to include some little luxuries - even if you have to fake it ‘til you make it! *This is a partnership post.

Hack 1: Do Your Research!
The most important thing that you can do to make your budget fit a luxury holiday is to research as much as you can. So many websites offer certain holidays for a certain price, but with some pushing you can find the right one for you at a cheaper price for the same thing! 

Hack 2: Go Off The Beaten Track

You may want to go to the heart of Disneyworld, but that doesn't mean you have to stay in a Disney-themed hotel. Go off the beaten track and pick staying options outside of the main destination you’re looking at. You’ll watch the £ signs roll down and see your dream holiday stand out.

Hack 3: Travel Out Of Season

Choosing to travel out of the popular seasons is a good option. Without paying the premium prices, you still get the premium service you want. The cost can come down by as much as 75%, and you get the chance to get on that sugary beach of your dreams without going broke.

Hack 4: Book In Advance

Are you wanting to schlep it across to Thailand? That’s a long-haul trip with long prices. So, book as far in advance as your budget allows and chip away at the cost. Don’t be stuck with the full price on payday - not when you can spare £50 a month to go on the holiday of a lifetime.

Hack 5: Clothing Swaps

New holidays require new clothes. So, instead of spending a fortune on new stuff, contact your girlfriends and get a clothing swap going. They may not be on holiday at the same time that you are, but that doesn't mean that they don’t have the wardrobe to help! Borrow what you can and bring it all back (clean!) when your holiday is over.
