These days with the world still coming out from a global recession, there are quite a number of things one can do to have a great inexpensive vacation. Especially with the hotel and hospitality industry, which were affected by the economic slow down, there are many bargains and deals that are available. Here are some of the things one can do when searching for the perfect vacation without breaking the bank:

- Go online to search for great deals on hotels. The internet is still the initial place to go to when looking for deals for staying in hotels. Sometimes, all you have to do is to email some of the places and see if they offer great rates. Cardiff Bay Hotels may have weekend rates that are great for local residences and offer substantial discounts on weekends for the locals. Cardiff is a bustling trading city especially when it comes to the maritime industry. On weekends, business slows down as businessmen who are there on the weekdays go home to their families. By asking around, you can probably find a couple of posh hotels willing to give great rates on their rooms or services offered.

- Plan ahead. By planning your vacation ahead of time, you can get good prices on airfares, room rates and other items as well. Airplane fares purchased a month in advance can be low as 50% off the regular rate, and booking hotels ahead of time, you can ask for a better rate. Even renting cars ahead of time will get you better packages as well. By booking ahead of time, you assure the host a guaranteed income and they can respond to you by giving ample discounts or upgrading the services that will make your vacation worthwhile.

- Make an itinerary of the trip. By managing your time on your vacation, you will be able to optimize that vacation to your particulars. A vacation may not necessarily be full of activities but being able to plan some does help. Some people though wish to not do anything during their vacation but get ample rest and downtime with their significant other and that is fine. But for those with families, especially young children in tow, then being able to plan things, especially going to theme and amusement parks need to be planned well. Such planning includes giving directions on where to meet or what to do when they get lost of separated. It may happen so preparing for it is good.
