Top Holiday Money Saving Tips

Top Holiday Money Saving Tips

In our GLOSSYBOX exclusive survey, we discovered that British families spend up to £6000 on their annual summer holidays, with women spending around £200 on beauty treatments and £400 on clothes before the holiday even starts!

Of course, we see the figures and think it’s shocking but when you think of all the extras like spending money, food, transport and much more it makes sense. So we’ve come up with a few great websites and apps that will help you save money for your holiday preparation!

Whenever I book hotel accommodation I always go through! They provide great deals on accommodation, with the option to cancel the booking for free a day before your holiday if needed, and they work closely with to find you the cheapest deals on flights.

Plus, if you’re a frequent traveller, you’re upgraded to a genius member when you get exclusive discounts on accommodation!

Treatwell is a beauty booking website and app that are all about finding a better way to book your hair and beauty services. They work with over 20,000 partners around the country so you have a long list of salons you can scroll through in your area to book appointments that suit you.

Plus, they always offer amazing discounts, for example at the minute they have up to 50% off waxing or if you book an appointment with a new salon you get £10 off your booking.

Do it yourself lashes

Instead of spending £40+ on getting a set of Russian lashes done in a salon, why not invest in this amazing multipack of falsies?

Ardell are one of the best selling lash companies with their natural looking false lashes that have an invisible band so they look just like your own lashes.


Everyone is starting to get a Monzo card nowadays and for good reason! Monzo is a fantastic new way of banking that works like any usual debit card, you can transfer money into that account, spend it wherever you wish and track your spending via an app.

But the main benefit is that you can spend with your Monzo card anywhere in the world, for free. It charges your card dependant on the exchange rate at that time! You can also set a limit to how much you spend in one day.

Skyscanner is the place to go to when you want to compare millions of flights to find the cheapest deal, fast. Whether you want to go to Italy or Australia, they find low cost flights to get you there. They can also find the cheapest hotels and car hire for you if you’re wanting to book everything through them!

Fresh Faced

A top tip I would recommend whilst on a long haul flight would be applying a face mask during your flight. Being cooped up on a plane with strangers can really take it out of you and the environment can have a knock on your skin.

GLAMGLOW have an amazing range of face masks, but my favourite when travelling is the travel sized Thirsty Mud Hydrating Treatment to rejuvenate parched skin in need of a boost.

I think it is so important to follow a beauty routine that works for YOU - you don't need to follow the crowd. I am always researching and trying out new looks, products and routines that are fresh and popular amongst the global beauty community to keep up to date with what's on trend and what works best. If you name a product, I've probably tried it.
