The sneaky way to get two holidays in one – without paying extra | The Sun

A TRAVEL expert has revealed a sneaky way to bag two holidays in one trip, and holidaymakers won't need to fork out much extra.

Brits will be looking for ways to save money on their next break, with many on a much stricter budget due to the cost of living crisis.

And experts have revealed how to get two holidays in one simply by arranging layovers.

In an article in Conde Nast Traveller, Jack Sheldon of Jack’s Flight Club, explained how securing a layover at a Flagship airline's airport hub could result in an additional holiday.

Most major flag carriers will make a stop at their national hub before flying to an onward destination.

For example, Turkish Airlines will pit in Istanbul while Etihad even offers free stopovers in Abu Dhabi with free stays at 3* and 4* hotels.

Jack said: "Many of these flagship carriers are also incentivised by their host country to drive local tourism by setting their fare rules so that it's easy to extend a stopover from a few hours to a two-in-one holiday and see two destinations for the price of one flight.

"To do this, simply take a standard return flight search and change it into a multi-city search.

"While flying from Manchester to Sydney with Singapore Airlines, for example, extending a stopover in Singapore to two nights won’t increase the total cost of the flights – meaning you’ve just added a city break to your holiday Down Under at no extra cost."

Other airlines to offer free stopovers include Icelandair, with a break in Reykjavik, while Qatar Airways lets you stay for up to four days in Doha for as little as £12 a night.

But for those holidaymakers who can't extend their holiday days, there are other ways to make savings on trips.

A "wonky weekend" involves travelling from Saturday to Monday, instead of the much more common Friday to Sunday.

By shifting a trip by just one day, Brit holidaymakers could end up saving a lot of money.
