Money-Saving Tips for When Booking Self-Catering Accommodation in the Karoo

Are you getting that feeling that another getaway is in order? Wouldn’t it be great to pack a few bags, jump in the car, go on a scenic family road trip through the Karoo, and relax in what is arguably the Karoo’s top-ranking self-catering accommodation? You can do that in Graaff-Reinet.

Life is stressful, living costs are high, and many families are on a strict budget when planning a holiday. And if you have little busy bodies around, they are going to want to enjoy all the full gamut of fun things that Graaff-Reinet has to offer. This beautiful town offers a wide range of exciting activities and attractions that will not only keep the kids occupied, but will be educational as well. With that said, if you’re on a tight budget, here are a few money-saving tips that will give you extra cash to spend on the things that matter the most to you: Your kids.


Ditch the Costly Restaurants

Self-catering accommodation is a wonderful way to enjoy a break away from home, but still enjoy the affordability of living at home. If you have children, self-catering is the name of the game. Eating out at fancy restaurants can cost a king’s ransom, especially if you have a big family, so ditch all those expensive restaurants and prepare your meals in the comfort of your guest house. However, for those nights that you do not want to make food yourself, try the street-market hot spots in town.


Don’t Forget to Pack All the Spoils

Many travellers come unprepared and the last thing you want is to have to travel to the nearest 24-hour convenience store at ten at night to buy – at a premium – something that would have been far cheaper at your local supermarket. To be safe, aside from packing all the basics, there are certain items that you just can’t afford to go without, such as your coffee, kids’ cereals, midnight snacks, and a few special treats. And don’t forget to bring your favourite wine along, with a corkscrew bottle opener, of course!


Compare Self-Catering Facilities and Services

Not all upmarket guest houses offer accommodation with top-quality linen and towels, a flat-screen television, DStv, a fully equipped kitchenette with all the standard appliances, a dining space, air-conditioning, an alarm system, secure off-street parking, a braai area, free Wi-Fi, and even kids’ board games. Even fewer offer housekeeping services that include laundry services. Make sure to compare and choose accommodation that can offer the exact services you require, as this will save you both time and money.
