You could save hundreds by going on holiday in May instead of August with your pre-school kids – The Sun

IF you’re a parent but not yet limited by school holidays, getting away before term finishes can knock more than a quarter off the bill.

The average saving for a family going on holiday in May vs August is 27 per cent, – and we've rounded up some of the best deals you can find for you and your kids.

According to TravelSupermarket, the average price of a holiday for four costs £1,921.

This drops to just £1,511 in May, a saving of over £400 for the entire family.

Even June is much cheaper than August by 25 per cent, meaning you can grab a bargain by travelling just a few months before.

There are many other good reasons to go on holiday earlier in the year.

Emma Grimster, a spokesperson for TravelSupermarket said:"It is well worth making the most of the years before family holidays are restricted to school holidays or risk fines."

She also said travelling earlier means much milder temperatures, which is better for kids and younger travellers.

She added: "Beaches and attractions also tend to be less crowded before resorts really fill up in late July and August."
