Travelling on a budget is something that we sometimes have to deal with. But even on a budget, there are a myriad of options available when it comes to accommodation. B&Bs make for a great choice for people looking to make savings on their accommodation when on vacation. If you are looking to do so in Devon, the following tips will come in handy. Read on.
1. Book Midweek
Booking midweek is a trick that most people fail to capitalise on when booking their accommodation during a vacation. Most B&Bs receive reservations on weekends. This trend could see prices on such days go a little higher. If you are looking to make some savings, book midweek and you might just be lucky enough to even get a discount.
2. Book as a Group
If you have a couple of friends that you are tagging along with for a vacation to Devon, then you may want to explore the option of booking as a group. The advantage of this is that you will make savings as the B&B charges reduce significantly when spread out among a group of people compared to when it’s an individual. The good news is that here in Devon, there are even some B&Bs available that offer an entire residence provided the booking is made in advance.
3. Use Referrals
One of the most powerful tools in business is referrals. The power of referrals is evident when you consider B&Bs. Do you know of a friend who came on vacation to Devon? Ask him or her to refer you to a place they got their accommodation and make sure to mention their name. Your host might use this as a reason to offer you a discount during your stay. Build such relationships over time by giving positive reviews and respecting your host’s premises.
