In a question posted to 500,000 Facebook fans of the daily deals sites LivingSocial and JumpOnIt, holidays in Australia were the preferred option for families and couples. The Facebook fans had plenty of tips to help make your holiday more affordable, “Do some research and wait for specials or travel at off peak times” or “Pack snacks for the kids and yourself so there is no temptation to pay for extras on your trip and ensure that you don’t go over budget wherever you travel,” says a Fan from Sydney.

“You don’t have to stay couped up in your accommodation, fearing you will break the bank.
