If your family couldn’t afford a holiday this summer holiday don’t feel bad.

Holidays are all about memories and experiencing something new – you can do that from home. Here’s how:

1. Go camping in the garden

Sounds odd, but this is perfect – you don’t have to travel, you know you’re safe…and there’s a real toilet whenyou need it.

You can find affordable tents for every budget these days, and because it’s in your back garden you don’t need to send a fortune.

2. Do a house swap

This is a great option for families with very young children. Sometimes, with all the best will in the world, a hotel just won’t do, and you need somewhere that’s a bit more comfortable and homely.

House swapping means you only have to worry about your food and travel expenses – accommodation, which is what can make travel expensive is covered.

Look for good house swapping sites online – be sure to read reviews about them, and then find a location that your family would like to visit…simple.

3. Look for deals

If camping isn’t your thing and you don’t like the idea of total strangers staying in your home, then look for last minute deals online.

August is still a premium month for travel and accommodation, but voucher websites like Groupon and Wowcher are known for offering cheap getaways for couples and families.
