As we’ve all got a little more money floating around at the moment thanks to a quick economic recovery in this country, thousands of UK families are starting to think about which locations would be most suitable for their 2014 holiday. Things are still pretty tight financially at the moment though, and so they’ll undoubtedly be on the look out for destinations that can be reached for the lowest prices possible. While some will setting for staying inside their home country, other more innovative people will spend the next couple of months working out if it’s possible to travel abroad on a tight budget.
With that in mind, I decided that I’d write a short article today in the hope of pointing you in the right direction. You see; it’s more than possible to visit most countries in Europe without breaking the bank, you just need some handy tips from a professional budget traveler like myself. Over the last ten years I’ve been to most of the main holiday destinations in the EU, and so I’m probably one of the best people out there to give you sound advice. Spend the next couple of minutes having a read through all the information below, and I’ll do my best to highlight the locations you may wish to consider.
As the Irish republic is only a few minutes away on a flight from most UK airports, it makes for the perfect family holiday destination. You’ve probably got some misconceptions about this country thanks to the media attention received almost daily in the north, but this really doesn’t reflect the true situation we find in the south. Flights here can be obtained for less than £30 during off peak hours, and accommodation can be booked through reputable providers like Venere for much less than you might imagine.
Again, because of its close proximity to the British Isles, Paris is often a top choice amongst UK residents who’re trying to stick to a tight budget. When booked in advance or at the very last minute, return flights can be obtained for around £50, and the sheer abundance of hotel options means there’s some real bargains to be had if you know where to look. As you would when booking any holiday abroad, it’s always a good idea to use price comparison websites to make sure you get the best deals possible.
You might think this destination would be better suited to groups of lads or hippies looking to relive their 1960’s heyday, but in truth, this is another misconception promoted by the media. Amsterdam is one of the most culturally vibrant cities I’ve ever visited, with great food, interesting museums and more history than you could ever imagine. Also, the people are very welcoming to British tourists, so you’ll never have to worry about asking for directions if you get lost or stray off the beaten path.
So, now you’ve had a moment to look at my suggestions, it’s time you started doing some research of your own before making a booking. I absolutely guarantee you’ll love the places I’ve just mentioned, and you’re certain to come back with truly fantastic memories that will stay with you forever.
Have a brilliant time!
