Saving money on your holiday to Johannesburg

An increasingly popular tourist destination, especially after the recent South African World Cup, Johannesburg is a city well served by world airlines. The city’s popularity means that flights are more plentiful, and therefore cheaper than ever before. If you’re looking to holiday to Johannesburg on a budget this year, our guide will help you to keep your travel costs to a minimum.

Be flexible with flight dates

If you can be flexible with your travel dates, you can really make savings. Travel at weekends is more popular, and therefore more expensive. Look to book through the week and you’ll not only find cheaper airfares, but cheaper hotel and accommodation costs too.

Alternative airports

Consider flying to airports other than Johannesburg Airport. Flights to less popular areas can be far cheaper, and you can then take a cheap connecting flight or alternative means of transport to the city itself. If you’re willing to extend your travel time, you can also make savings by opting for non-direct flights. Travelling via Amsterdam, Dubai, Frankfurt or Paris may mean spending some extra time on the plane, but you can dramatically reduce the cost of your flights too.

Last minute deals

Look out for last minute deals from travel agents and online too. Although flight prices tend to increase over time, the prices of package holidays can drop drastically. This is a great option for families looking to book a low-hassle holiday, as your flights, transfers, accommodation, meals and even drinks can all be included in the package. Johannesburg offers clean and comfortable accommodation opportunities all year round for the visitors. It is easy to find accommodation, guest houses, B&B and Johannesburg hotels.

Round the world deals

A great way to save on your holiday costs is actually to extend your holiday. Travel agents and flight specialists increasingly offer round the world deals where you can travel to a specific number of countries making a specific number of stop offs en route. By booking all of your flights through one agent you can make big savings not only on flights, but on accommodation too.
