Consider self-catering options like apartments for significant savings, especially on longer trips. Skyscanner lets you compare prices side-by-side to find the best deal. For instance, a 7-night self-catering stay in Chennai could save you up to 53% compared to a hotel! Savings are possible in other popular destinations too, like Singapore (up to 15% off). Hostels offer a budget-friendly option with modern amenities, delicious local food, and a social atmosphere. While not for everyone, Skyscanner has recommendations for trendy hostels that ditch the old, drab stereotype.

Looking for the best bang for your buck? Here’s where you’ll find the biggest price drops in hotels compared to last year:

  • Cavelossim (India) – down a whopping 68%!
  • Baku (Azerbaijan) – prices slashed by 52%
  • Langkawi (Malaysia) – enjoy savings of 38%

Food delivery apps are booming! Half of all Indian travellers aged 25-34 say they’d use them on holiday, compared to only 18% of those over 65. Consider this when budgeting for meals.
