With APD on the rise, Essential Travel reveals top 10 money saving tips

1st November 2010 will see Air Passenger Duty (APD) rise yet again, representing a total hike of 325 per cent in just four years. The tax on flights may be on the increase but leading travel essentials provider, can help travellers shrink the cost of all the other expenses surrounding their holiday with its Top 10 Ways to Save Money on Your Holiday guide.

"Holidaymakers rarely count the cost of all the extras they spend on their holiday and few spend time researching ways to minimise those additional expenses", says Stuart Bensusan,

But all those little extras can add up and with the rise in APD it's important to find ways to save money elsewhere. Our guide reveals some interesting and valuable tips, for example if you book airport parking in advance you can save as much as 60 per cent on the pay-on-the-day price and if you book an airport hotel and parking package together it can actually work out cheaper than booking airport parking alone!"

"Holidaymakers can make huge savings on their holiday essentials, provided they do their homework."
