We all like to get away from it all from time to time. This is especially the case during the winter months when the winds are cold, the rain continues to lash it down and it seems to be dark all the time! If you are living on a budget, seeking debt advice and living from pay packet to pay packet, it might seem like it is impossible to get away for a short break, to get some sun on your back. It isn’t impossible, and there are a few destinations that are reachable from the UK without spending a fortune.
Here we take a look at some of the best holiday destinations around Europe that can be reached via budget airline. There are some fantastic deals on offer if you do a little bit of digging around, with air fares really cheap, and accommodation cheaper than ever before due to the popularity of rental apartments and the like. There has never been a better time to get away and find some winter sun and fun this year.
This first destination is a collection of islands, rather than just one place, but the Canary Islands offer you sun and nice, warm temperatures all year-round. Whether you choose to fly to Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura, Tenerife, or Lanzarote, you’ll have your choice of beaches, swimming pools, warm temperatures, good food, culture and plenty of relaxation. Flights can be purchased from many UK cities for a relaxing winter sun holiday.
If you fancy a little bit more culture and a city break instead of a relaxing beach-style holiday, then you have plenty to choose from for a cheap price in Europe. One such destination is Berlin. The German capital offers a relatively cheap capital city break when compared with other destinations. It has plenty of history and culture to explore, art galleries and museums on every corner. It has become a city of great culinary experiences and a fantastic city to walk around without feeling too busy.
Barcelona is one of the most attractive and popular destinations in the World, the Catalan capital of Barcelona really does offer something for everyone. The mild winter climate makes it a tourist hotspot year-round, but during the winter months you can pick up a bargain in terms of travel and accommodation. In Barcelona you can visit the Camp Nou and witness the majesty of the footballing behemoth of FC Barcelona. Look around and experience the Gaudi architecture throughout the city, take in fantastic views from the top of Park Guell, or ride the cable cars down to the beach and seaside. The Gothic quarter provides the dark and welcoming cobbled backstreets to experience friendly-vibes and wonderful tapas.
Aside from these highlights, there are plenty of other city breaks that can be reached at a relatively cheap price for air fares, including Prague, Amsterdam and Budapest, as well as Paris, Brussels and Bruges, which can all be reached via train from London.
