If you have ever wondered ‘where do I get the best holiday deals?’, then you’ll know that finding the best holiday accommodation deals online can be a bit of a nightmare. Whilst it is certainly quicker to use the internet to compare accommodation deals, it is easy to get embroiled in looking at the hundreds worldwide cheap holidays on offer, rather than specific hotel deals in Bournemouth, discount holiday cottages in Dorchester or cheap weekend deals in Weymouth.
However, if you know where to look, it is possible to search for Dorset accommodation deals, and compare deals on hotels, discount cottages, holiday park special offers, or all types of accommodation deals together if you wish. The iknow-uk website lets you search for deals on particular accommodation types such as hotel deals or cottage deals, and also by area such as Bournemouth deals or Weymouth deals. And if you know exactly what you want, you can even search for discount hotels in Swanage or Poole caravan deals.
Special offer deals on hotels in Dorset, cheap holiday cottages, Dorset B&B guest houses and Dorset holiday parks can be found online, particularly out of season in winter, midweek, or at the last minute. Accommodation special offers vary but you can often find discounted rates, ‘stay 2 nights get 1 free’ offers and free child places. But be careful, as what is advertised as cheap online hotel deals or discount holidays in Dorset may not always be as good as they sound. Sometimes although the discounted rates are cheaper than normal hotel prices, the normal price at the hotel may be very expensive. It is worth comparing hotel deals to make sure that you really do find the best deals on holiday accommodation in Dorset.
If you find a good hotel special offer you can save a lot of money by booking discount hotels in Dorset. The type of special offers that hotels offer will vary from hotel to hotel. Many large chain hotels in Dorset offer early booking bargain deals and the special hotel rates are much cheaper if you book early. Small hotels and guest houses on the other hand are more likely to offer last minute hotel deals as they really want to avoid empty rooms and will reduce prices quite drastically to fill available rooms.
Lots of B&Bs, guest houses and hotels in Dorset offer discounts for long stays. If you stay for 2 or 3 nights you may get a night free. This is quite a popular deal for cheap weekend breaks in Dorset hotels where you can stay Friday and Saturday night and get Sunday night free, although this deal usually doesn’t apply to bank holiday weekends.
For public holidays special discounts and deals may be on offer in Dorset hotels, such as Christmas holiday deals, new years eve special offers and Valentine deals. Whilst many Dorset hotels increase prices over Christmas, new year and other special occasions, some offer early booking deals for longer stays. For example, over Christmas you may be required to stay for a week to qualify for discounted hotel rates. Some Dorset spa hotels or hotels that offer activity breaks will do special festive deals with free spa treatments or free leisure activities when you stay in the hotel.
If you’re looking for a cheap romantic break, then some luxury hotels in Dorset do special offers and last minute discount rooms so you can book a luxury romantic break for the price of a cheap hotel room. For last minute romantic breaks it is possible to book luxury hotels with four poster beds at bargain prices. For family holidays in Dorset, some hotels offer family rooms for the price of a double room out of season. If the kids stay free then your holiday will cost a lot less and in some Dorset hotels kids eat free as well so you can save even more.
For family holidays on a budget, Dorset caravan holidays in Dorset holiday parks, caravan sites and campsites can provide the perfect cheap holiday deal. Some Dorset holiday park deals include leisure activities, family entertainment shows, swimming pools and nearby beaches so you can keep the kids happy without going over budget.
Dorset has some great holiday parks around the beach resorts of Bournemouth, Weymouth and Lyme Regis. Although sometimes holiday parks are not the cheapest places to stay, particularly in the school holidays, if you book holidays out of season, especially in winter, you can benefit from greatly reduced rates, seasonal discounts and special winter holiday deals.
Whilst the large all inclusive holiday parks offer fantastic discounts and deals in winter, for summer holiday deals it could be cheaper to stay at smaller basic caravan parks and campsites. These caravan sites and camp sites in Dorset will have fewer facilities, but may offer the best deals on holidays.
Lots of Dorset caravan parks with static caravans offer discounts for long stays, and if you book a holiday for a week, you may get a second week at half price. The best advice when booking discount self catering holiday park accommodation in Dorset is to shop around and compare deals, discounts and special offers from several caravan parks and campsites before booking.
