There are plenty of ways you can make your money go further on a day out with the kids. Family days out can often accidentally be expensive if you find yourself paying for several entrance tickets, meals, and transport. Sometimes the best family days out are the simplest, however. A hike or cycle ride in the most scenic areas of the countryside, or a family picnic can be even more fun. Here are five tips to save money on family days out.

Look for deals

Get money off your next family cottage or other accommodation and stay overnight as well.

Plan ahead of the weather

It’s a good idea to have a contingency plan if the weather changes. Brainstorm some rainy day activities that won’t break the bank if you’re caught in a shower. Unfortunately, the cheaper days out tend to all outdoors, so you might want to plan ahead for rain. Look if any local cinemas have family deals or find vouchers for restaurants online.

Pack a picnic

A picnic will save you a lot of money on meals out. Eating out can be costly if there are a lot of you and a picnic will be much cheaper. There are plenty of easy picnic recipes you can try for a healthier homemade option. Picnics also give you more flexibility. It’s also safer, you can keep your distance a little more from other diners in public places. Plan a secluded park to stop and eat on your day out. It’s a good idea to have somewhere in mind before you go.
