When it comes to booking a holiday, most people think about a time when they’re able to take at least a week off work, when the kids aren’t at school, when the weather is just right... This usually results in a mass of people all heading to the same places at the same times – at a hugely inflated price. But there’s a great way to save potentially hundreds of pounds, keep your annual leave, and still get a fantastic holiday. The answer is: cheap short breaks.
A few long weekends abroad and cheap short breaks can often work out better than longer holidays. For a start, you can have more of them! Spread them throughout the year and you could end up with up to ten mini breaks compared to one or two “proper” holidays. Everyone needs a break now and again, but for many people, that elusive yearly holiday is sometimes out of reach thanks to financial restrictions, bad timing, unforeseeable circumstances, and many other factors. A short break can be a lifesaver, taking up no more than a day or two on top of a weekend, letting you get away and switch off in the sun for a while and come back feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, relaxed, and ready to face the daily grind with a smile! And chances are you’ll spend less, so there’s less chance of you coming back with a financial holiday hangover.
Long weekends and short breaks don’t have to be restricted to the UK. These days, such a huge number of flights operate from all UK airports to so many short haul destinations, you can get to pretty much anywhere in Europe in just a few hours.
When booking cheap short breaks, it’s a good idea to think about flight and transfer times. If you’ve only got two or three days, you’re not going to want to spend hours travelling. A few great destinations are the Balearics, Greece, the Costas, Portugal and the Canaries, which all offer guaranteed sunshine and a super short flight time.
