Save hundreds on your holiday by booking through a cashback site. Here’s our favourite deals from both big brand names and lesser known, but rewarding retailers.
With summer officially here, most of us are looking forward to a break from the real world by jetting off on holiday.
Still not booked yours and worried about it breaking the bank? As well as making good use out of late deals and discount codes, you can also save even more money by booking your next getaway through a cashback site, such as Quidco or TopCashback.
We’ve rounded up five different parts of your holiday that you can claim cashback on and how much each of them offers, including top retailers like British Airways, Post Office Travel Money and Expedia.
With many cheap flights leaving in the early hours of the morning, most of us have spent hours deliberating the cheapest way to get to the airport.
Do you splash out on a taxi, get public transport then stay overnight in a travel lodge, or pay to park your car next to the airport?
If you’re picking the latter option this year, get up to 34% of your money back by booking through a cashback site like Quidco.
