Everything seems to be so expensive at the moment so we have put together 18 ways to help you have a low cost day out. These are all perfect to try out over school holidays and weekends when you want to get out and about as a family but want to try and save money where you can.
18 Ways to Help You Have a Low Cost Day Out
✔️ Play dates at someone’s house or the local park are free and fun for the adults and children.
✔️ Head out for a picnic with family or friends.
✔️ Be in nature – enjoy scavenger hunts, identify leaves and trees or simply lie back and watch the clouds.
✔️ Go for a bike ride.
✔️ Check out the events run by your local shopping centre – these are often free or low cost and usually run during school holidays.
✔️ Enjoy local Summer of Fun days and free low cost library events.
✔️ Don’t forget to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge over the school holidays.
✔️ Look out for discounts codes with local influencers and food packet offers to help you save money on days out.
✔️ Use supermarket loyalty points towards days out.
✔️ Pre-book your attraction tickets in advance and online (including parking) – this can often save you a small amount of money.
✔️ Make sure to take reusable water bottles out with you and refill as you go to save you spending money on refreshments.
✔️ Do your car park research in advance – a car park a short walk away may work out cheaper than parking on site at some places.
✔️ Make the most of your membership cards – these can save you money in the long term.
✔️ Make the most of kids eat free deals at specified food outlets during the school holidays.
✔️ Check if your entry ticket lasts for longer – sometimes paying for one entry entitles you to more throughout the year (for example purchasing a standard entry ticket for Windsor Castle and the Roald Dahl Museum allows you to visit again throughout the year for free).
