We’re well into the second half of the year, and signs of tiredness and burn out can start to show. If your feet are itching to travel, and the idea of a last-minute getaway is becoming more attractive by the day, here’s how you can keep your last-minute getaway costs under control.

Drive there

Did somebody say ‘road trip’? Consider driving to your destination if it’s close enough. You’ll save money and enjoy the scenery around you. Make sure to take lots of snacks and playlists to keep the trip upbeat. The journey can be just as enjoyable as the destination.

Choose self-catering

Eating three meals a day at restaurants can be very expensive. Choose accommodation options where you have access to a kitchen so that you can prepare some of your meals yourself. You’re likely also to have more time to enjoy the attractions and sights since you didn’t have to wait long for your food to be prepared. Remember to buy your snacks and groceries at our partners, like Pick n Pay, and get up to 12% in cashbacks. You can then save your cashbacks and earn interest on your savings.
