How to book an ‘influencer’ holiday without the large price tag
Since the coronavirus pandemic started, many of us have been unable to venture abroad due to strict travel restrictions. With restrictions now easing, more and more people are now thinking about where to book their holiday destinations.
Lavish trips posted on social media by influencers may be at the top of many wish lists, but often these are out of reach with a celebrity price tag attached – not forgetting the increase in rising travel costs. Doing the hard work for you, Asda Money has pulled together some of the most desirable destinations commonly visited by influencers, with alternative money-saving options and tips for going overseas to help get the most from any holiday bookings.
The locations include top holiday spots from around the world, including Mexico, Italy, Los Angeles, The Maldives and more. Here are some of the best money-saving holiday deals in your favourite destinations. Hotel prices are sourced from Booking.com based on one double-bed room booked in early May.
