Though everyone needs a break from the daily grind once and a while, many are deterred from taking a holiday because of the costs involved.
However, with a little bit of careful planning and imagination a family break or romantic getaway needn’t cost the earth.
To prove it, here are five great suggestions for holidays that won’t break the bank.
One of the easiest ways to save is to stay in the UK for your annual break. That doesn’t mean staying in the same country though and you can drive, fly or travel by train or even boat to one of the other nations that make up the UK.
Wales is an obvious choice, lying conveniently close to the west of England. The Welsh coast offers visitors a wealth or picturesque holiday destinations which are characterised by cheap accommodation costs for an unforgettable and budget-friendly break.
You can also sample the delights of Northern Ireland and Scotland on a budget if you book wisely and fancy exploring yet another part of the UK.
For even better deals on transport and accommodation, check out the Superbreak website for the latest deals and make your holiday work for you.
Like Wales, Cornwall is a great stay at home alternative for those living in the UK. As the country’s most coastal county, visitors are spoilt for choice when it comes to getting their feet wet.
With miles and miles of open countryside, beautiful seaside villages and friendly locals, there’s plenty to do away from the beach too.
3. The Costa del Sol
If you don’t want to go without your week in the sun but still want to keep your wallet happy, this southern stretch of the Spanish coast is a great choice.
With affordable accommodation, cheap eats and guaranteed sunshine, Spain regularly tops the list of great value holiday destinations; allowing you to have all the fun of the sun without putting yourself in the red.
4. The Algarve
Like Spain, Portugal is often right at the top of cheap European destinations. Be welcomed by lovely people and enjoy beautiful beaches and great food – you are relaxed only a couple of hours after your arrival.
With long, hot summers and miles of sandy beaches, Bulgaria is fast emerging as one of the best holiday destinations in Europe. Accommodation, food and drink are all incredibly cheap, providing holidaymakers with a great value and great quality summer holiday.
Keeping your family and your wallet happy on holiday may not always be easy but by choosing the right destinations and being clever with your cash you can have great value holidays every year.
