How to reduce costs when staying away with a family.

May 14th, 2014

Travelling with a family means costs can quickly escalate so it makes good sense to keep an eye on the purse strings when away from home.

Instead of squashing into one hotel room where all you do is sleep, or having to pay for numerous hotel rooms when the children are older; why not stay in a serviced apartment?   This style of short-stay serviced accommodation offers your family a real home-away-from home and the freedom you enjoy.

Preparing your favourite meals – no high eating out costs

The fully fitted kitchens mean you can prepare dine-in meals for everyone and family picnics for days out.  So you can offer everyone their favourite food whilst hugely reducing eating out costs.

However, should you decide to eat out, there are numerous national and international restaurants in The Hub, Xscape, Midsummer Arcade and Milton Keynes mile long shopping mall.   Many of which have lunch and early evening specials which are less expensive than choosing from the main menu.  Simply stroll over to The Hub;MK and sample the different dishes from from a variety of restaurants which offer a quick bite to more A la carte. Cafe Rouge, Strada, Raymond Blanc, Aqua Italia, Gourmet Burger, Turtle Bay.

Keeping the luggage weight limit down – no high laundry bills

Each City Stay apartment is fitted with a washer/dryer which allows you to refresh your clothes on a daily basis.  Keeping within your luggage allowance means you don’t have to pay the extra baggage allowance.

Purchasing your favourite foods from the on-site Sainsburys supermarket

With a very large Sainsburys on-site at Vizion you can do one large grocery shop and pop the food into the spacious fridge/freezer in the kitchen, saving you time and grabbing the 2- for-1 bargains on offer.

No parking fees

All of our apartments are offered with on-site secure allocated parking which is free of charge.   So you will have no need to pop out early in the morning or late at night to top up the parking meter during your stay.
