Ayoub Al-Mamoun, a travel expert at Skyscanner, says: “During crowded periods such as Eid or summer, the price of the trip may not differ or increase much, even if the travel date is during crowded times such as the Eid holiday or summer vacation, which are usually more expensive, i.e. They can still explore new destinations at competitive prices when searching for flights and comparing their prices using specialized sites such as Skyscanner.
On the other hand, Ayoub Al-Mamoon, travel expert at Skyscanner, reviewed 4 ways to enjoy a group travel trip during the official holiday of Eid Al-Adha:
1. Use a calendar app to set travel dates:
“Using the digital calendar app allows sharing plans and aspirations that can become reality, so it is recommended to add some goals to the calendar, such as the desire for group travel, in order to motivate you to travel with friends and family and turn your dream into reality during the upcoming official holiday.”
2. Expand your search for your destination:
“If you decide to travel to the United Kingdom, you may find that traveling to London Gatwick is cheaper than London Heathrow, so it is usually advised to type the country name in the destination search box in order to enjoy the best deals and options available for travel.”
3. Share a suitcase:
“The ticket for low-priced flights most of the time includes hand luggage only, so friends or family members are advised to share the expenses of adding another full bag of 23 kilograms in weight to enjoy the travel trip.”
4. Use digital applications to track shared financial costs:
“Joint payments can lead to many problems between friends during group trips. Therefore, it is preferable to invite everyone to download the budget application on their phones in order to record all private and joint expenses and payments.
