If you do not have much money to spare and if you have not taken your family on a holiday for a very long time, you might want to consider taking your family on a non-traditional holiday that will not be likely to cost too much of money. If you are creative, you should be able to give your family a spectacular time without having to break the bank or invest your entire life savings on the trip.

Plan well ahead of time

The best way for you to get cheap hotels is to plan out your trip well ahead of time. As the time draws nearer, hotel rates tend to go up because they know that travellers will be becoming desperate and will be more willing to pay higher rates for emergency trips. At the very last minute however, if the hotel rooms have not gotten booked in a certain hotel, you might be able to get a room for a very low cost however this is a very rare chance because in most cases, all rooms will likely get booked up and you might be left without a room.

Although a Miramar hotel might be very much out of your budget, you might be very surprised to see a good deal come up suddenly if you are carefully watching the websites and the deals for a while. There are times when a cancellation occurs or something else unexpected happens and the hotel will give the room away for a very good rate.

Alternatively, you could simply choose to look on home share or home stay websites that will give details for people willing to rent out rooms in their home to you for a fraction of the cost that it would cost you to stay at even the most inexpensive hotel. Therefore if you choose a nice location with many things to see and do during the day time, you could be spending most of your time away from your accommodation and coming back only to sleep at night. Home stay accommodations will cost you next to nothing and will be more or less negligible in comparison to a hotel. The best part is that you will also get free breakfast for your family every morning reducing your costs even more. For your other meals, consider eating junk food from the supermarket which your kids will love and which will not cost you much money. Having the opportunity to eat junk food for two days will be a holiday in itself for your kids.
