When it comes to travelling, being one step ahead in your plans can save you a whole lot of money. But, flipping through the calendar and picking non-peak holiday dates to save money is difficult.
First, there simply aren’t many annual leaves to take off. Second, not everyone in your travel group can sync and take so many weekdays off. Third, the uncertainties of pre-planning too far ahead might make you lose more money.
As opposed to what the majority think, travelling on public Malaysian dates is actually not as expensive–if you know how!
