The home of holiday perks

Cheap holidays - just how we like 'em

Not to blow our own trumpets, but cheap holidays are what we do best. Why? Because we love a bargain, obviously. But we're not talking the reduced-to-clear, expired-10-months-ago kind of bargain. We're all about value, and we don't like to compromise, so we deliver all the good stuff without the huge price tag. You're welcome.

From beaches to breakfast buffets, Tenerife to Thailand, whatever kind of holiday you're after, we've got deals that are pretty hard to say no to. Plus, on top of that, we offer loads of little extras - like a FlexiPay scheme to make paying for your holiday an absolute doddle, tons of holiday perks to make your trip extra special - AND - we PriceWatch. What does that mean? Oh, just that we check thousands of deals to make sure you're getting the best ones. No biggie.

Our Top Tip!

When looking for a cheap beach break, don't just look at the price tag. It depends what type of holiday you're looking for, but if you're like us and simply want to escape to somewhere hot without breaking the bank, then try going All Inclusive. We know this might seem like it costs a little bit more than Self Catering, but if you think about how much money you'd usually spend on food, drinks and activities, you could be saving a ton of money!


Where are the cheapest holiday destinations?

Depending on the type of holiday you're looking for and the budget you have, there are plenty of destinations where you can get the most for your money. It's always worth remembering that the time of year you travel can have an impact on price too. We've got tons of budget-friendly breaks to beachy destinations such as the sunny coast of Spain and the Balearic Islands. If you're looking for an All Inclusive break where you get the most for your money, Turkey is a top pick, as they have a huge variety of resorts that are filled with fun for the whole family.
