If you intend to visit the UK as a Thai citizen for your holiday, one of the things that you will definitely need to sort out in advance is your accommodation. This is one of the most important aspects of such planning since it has an impact on how much you spend as well as how much fun the holiday is. Some of the things you need to sort out in order to get more value for your Thai baht when planning for such accommodation include:
Think out of the box
You should not always think that the best way to get accommodation is by staying in a hotel. There are many other solutions you can think about, including homestays if you have a few friends or relatives in the country. This has the potential to be more homely as well as cheaper compared to other accommodation solutions.
Bank on other people’s experiences
Depending on other people’s experiences can make it a lot easier for you to pick the right form of accommodation. For instance, you can get ideas on when to visit the country in order to get the cheapest accommodation rates . This can be done by consulting people who have visited the country in the past, or through reading reviews.
Time the holiday well
If you are intent on keeping the cost of accommodation down, you might need to be smart about how you time the holiday. There are specific times of the year when tourist traffic is very low, and you are likely to get the lowest rates during such times. By scheduling your visit then, you would benefit both from low rates as well as from less congestion by other tourists.
Loyalty programs are your best friend
There are many Thais who are members of loyalty programs yet they often do not know how to use them for benefits such as keeping the cost of holidays low. For instance, if you have a frequent flyer card, you may be eligible to getting lower hotel and tourism package rates. All you need to check if you can redeem some of the points you have with your airline.
In summary, though cities in the UK such as London are some of the most expensive places to live in, this does not necessarily mean that you have to spend a lot of money visiting them. With the above tips, you can ensure that your visit to the United Kingdom is both enjoyable and economical, at least as far as accommodation is concerned.
