Keep an Eye Out for Online Offers
Many online offer pages such as Living Social, Groupon, Quidco, gogroopie or Pigsback carry regular family days out discounts. It’s worth signing up to their emails too.
Consider an Annual Membership
If there’s a place that your family loves to visit, have a look at their annual membership as it will save you money over the year if you go often enough.
If you are in the UK, National Trust membership gives you access to hundreds of places to visit, as well as free parking at their sites. English Heritage also offers a good annual membership option.
Zoo Membership Can Let You Visit Other Zoos
Dublin Zoo’s annual pass also gives you entry to Fota Wildlife Park in Cork, as well as admission to four UK zoos – Edinburgh Zoo, Colchester Zoo, Twycross Zoo and Paignton Zoo – during the 12 months’ membership.
Likewise, when you become a member of some of the UK Zoos or animal parks, you often get membership and access to other zoos. For example, joining Chester Zoo gives you one exclusive free annual entry to 7 other zoos: Bristol Zoo, Colchester Zoo, Edinburgh Zoo, Newquay Zoo, Marwell Zoo, Paignton Zoo and Twycross Zoo.
Larger Family Tickets Can Help You Save
Consider the savings of a family ticket if going with a friend, rather than buying tickets separately. Some places offer family tickets with 2 adults and up to 6 kids which can help you to save on entry.
