Budget Holidays in the Turks and Caicos Islands

Turks and Caicos Islands HolidayIf you have always dreamed of having a perfect holiday at one of the best beaches of the world, but don’t really intend to plan it because you have always been on a low budget, don’t worry. The Turks and Caicos Islands can help you fulfil your dream with their money saving methods and yet give you an extremely joyful trip. Online travel agents are of much help in this regard. Some of them include Travelocity, Orbitz and Expedia, which will all help you in saving more than a few hundred dollars on different packages for vacations. These include flight fares and hotel accommodation (mostly including car rental services). Other than these, an even better deal is provided by the local website of Turks and Caicos Islands by the name of TurksandCaicosReservations.tc. It has good deals of a variety of resorts, thus, offering extra discounts, free treatments at the spa, restaurant vouchers and even free car rental services.

If you want to save a little more, you can travel during off season. In order to attract tourists, many resorts offer free nights and extra services during off season. Normally the off season is the hurricane season, and that is from the month of June up to November. Therefore, in case if you plan to travel during this season, it would be better to buy travel insurance. If you want to save even a bit more, you could perhaps consider taking a hotel that is a block or two away from the beach.

When once you have finally reached the island, you have more choices to save money. As refrigerators and microwave ovens are found in majority of the hotel resort rooms and condos, you can buy all the important daily items of food from the supermarket and refrigerate it at your hotel room in order to save the hotel food charges. The Graceway IGA offers some delicious cooked pastas, salads and rotisserie chickens which you can relish at your room during lunch or dinner time. Also, airlines do allow the passengers to bring food coolers as long as they are frozen and sealed. This way you can also bring food from home and save up a good amount of money on food, especially meat.

Dinner at restaurants is normally more costly than the same menu at lunch. Hence, a better idea to save money on the dinner would be to arrive 10 to 15 minutes before the switch over time and order the lunch. Mango Reef is a fine dining restaurant that has a four course prix-fixe meal at a very economical rate. The Tiki Hut offers ribs only for 14 dollars every Wednesday of the week. If you feel like saving a little more and don’t want to spend enough time dining out, you can also order food at Pizza Pizza and enjoy it in the balcony of your resort room while gazing at the bright starry sky.

The best part is that the most enjoyable activity at the island is free of cost. That is, snorkelling off the beach at Coral Gardens.
