Benidorm on a Budget
There are many amazing places to take a holiday, but people are always thrilled when they visit Benidorm. This area is perfect for anyone who wants an extraordinary holiday without going over their budget. There are numerous ways for everyone to save money on almost everything while they are spending time in Benidorm.
Here are 9 tips to help everyone save money while holidaying in Benidorm on a budget:
The hotels in Benidorm are wonderful, but anyone that is traveling to the area during peak season will find that the campsites offer cheaper prices. Many of the campsites have bungalows to rent, so people will not need to worry about bringing a tent or RV with them on holiday. These bungalows include all the comforts of home, just like a hotel, but the price is better. Another way that people can save money is to travel during off-season and take advantage of the all-inclusive deals that are available at that time.
Eating at restaurants can hurt a budget quickly if people are not careful. A couple of ways to save money include finding a restaurant that offers set menus or an all you can eat buffet. The set menus can be found at many restaurants, but the all you can eat buffets are normally only available at Chinese restaurants. However, they are both great ways to save money while still being able to eat delicious food. Picnics are another way to save money while enjoying the fresh air at any of the parks.
- Free Fiestas
Everyone may want to plan their time in Benidorm around one of the numerous free fiestas that are held in the streets throughout the year. A few of the popular ones includes the carnival right before Lent, the Fallas Fiesta in March, and the fancy dress parade that is held every November. These fiestas are fantastic ways to enjoy some entertainment without spending a lot of money, plus people get to immerse themselves into the culture and traditions of the locals.
- Theme Parks
There are three theme parks in Benidorm, and people will find that they can save quite a bit of money on their admission tickets when they purchase them online. Everyone can also purchase tickets that can be used at multiple theme parks online for even more savings.
- Outdoor Markets

Anyone who loves to workout will enjoy participating in the free exercise classes that are held at Levante Beach throughout the week. These classes are a fantastic way to stay in shape and keep up with a workout routine without needing to spend a dime.

Some people may even be happy spending part of their time in Benidorm people watching as they sit outside a bar or at the beach.
- Drinks and Happy Hour
With so many restaurants and bars in Benidorm, it is fairly easy for everyone to find something within their price range.

Everyone can order tapas while they are at a bar, as the tapas are a great way to try new foods while enjoying a snack to hold them over until dinner. People will need to be careful with how many tapas they order though, because ordering too many can be more expensive than ordering a meal off a set menu.
Walking is the easiest and cheapest way to get around Benidorm, but for the times when people do not feel like doing that, they can rent a scooter to go from one place to another. The public bus is another way to get around Benidorm and this mode of transportation is excellent and cheaper than taking a taxi.
