Is it possible to beat the cost of living and still have a fantastic holiday?
💰💶🏧💵💳🪙As the cost of living bites everyone, you may be starting to wonder if you can ever afford to get away at all this year. We have all seen the volume of international flights canceled this year and the heartbreak this has brought to so many, let alone the expense of adding unplanned hotel nights and additional meals to your stay if you are one of those unfortunate enough to get stranded.
⚠ Our top tips: Plan it carefully and use the tools available like Tourist Information and your visit Eastbourne brochure. You can head to Visit Eastbourne and use the itinerary planner and you may find that gift vouchers will help you budget during your stay. Remember that some key events are FREE, but bear in mind that the property you stay in may be slightly dearer, so a different event may suit you just as well. Most properties offer an early bird rate and look for flexible bookings with free cancellation if you think you may have to cancel. It is best to take out trip insurance if you can, if the worst does happen and your plans change, you should be able to claim back your losses.
SAVE ON OTHERWISE HIDDEN COSTS...
💰Eastbourne is actually a great destination for those on a budget. The Sheldon B&B is a top pick for you because of the FREE private parking (this can be a hidden cost in most seaside accommodations) and they offer a choice of rooms from singles to family of 5 and luxury to budget options (You can take a look click here). They offer a communal fridge and microwave in the guest eating area, so you can eat well, with a feeling of eating out, but obviously much cheaper, and you are much more in control of what you eat (especially if you have allergies or picky kids!). Did you know that hidden parking costs and eating whilst on holiday can be more expensive than booked activities, so this is a real bonus!). They also offer many items that you can borrow for FREE during your stay such as baby and toddler equipment, fishing nets, buckets and spades, windbreaks, and more - which, if you are coming on bus or train helps you to pack lighter, but be assured you have everything you need from potties to sterilizers! With a FREE playroom and lounge, you can relax whilst the kids play. One of the things Sheldon guests really love is that you can borrow a baby monitor and sit outside the room on the big comfy couch whilst the kids settle into sleep and perhaps enjoy a drink or two, knowing they are safe. Every family room has an information pack with ideas for you and the kids to choose from and we have a bright colorful display of activities in our family room hallway. We only clean using pro-biotic cleaners, are low allergy throughout, pet-free, and are virtually plastic-free (including our toiletries!) We have rooms highly suitable for children and adults on the spectrum. Not all our rooms show online, so give us a call - we can usually help!
📢TOP TIP! Every room has a refreshment tray, so bring your travel mug and water bottle and fill them daily, there are plenty of water stations around Eastbourne to top up your bottles for FREE!
