Top 5 Budget Holiday Ideas

Top 5 Budget Holidays

If you’re anything like us, one of your New Year’s Resolutions will be saving money. Now that becomes really tough if, like us, another one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to see more places, do new things and tick off a few items from the Bucket list. It’s one of those questions, how do you do all the things you want to do without spending every penny!

So we’ve come up with 5 holiday ideas to keep you on budget!


1/ Tenerife

It’s a little clichéd but staying on a Spanish island is a fantastic way to get a holiday in the sun for a very good price. Book a holiday for two for around £500 and get flights, transfers and hotel included, meaning all you have to budget for while you’re there is food. With 5.25% cashback on packages currently at Thomas Cook, you can get a not so shabby £25 cashback back too!


2/ Snowdonia – Wales

For those on a super tight budget that do not mind the great outdoors, we have the very beautiful and vast Snowdonia. Stay at the Gwern Goflsaf CampSite which is open 365 days a year and is only £35 per person for a whole week camping!  There are many local attractions including Zipworld, Bodnant Garden and Snowdonia Railway. Get back to nature, have an exciting adventure and save lots of money on your holiday this year! Not to mention wonder at the serene breath-taking views.

Top Secret Hotels

3/ Top Secret Hotel City Break run a very cool service named “Top Secret Hotels”, where you book a hotel without knowing which hotel you’ll be staying at, sounds great right?

It’s a lot better than it sounds, you can choose the number of stars of the hotel, the destination and you will be given the general area of the hotel. Stay in luxury 5 star hotels at a fraction of the price or get a bargain 3 star hotel. The idea is that hotels taking part can sell rooms at times where there’s less demand.

When we had a look you could stay in a 5* hotel in Barcelona for one night for just £71.68, including a FREE breakfast and WiFi. If you’re going as a couple or with a friend that’s just over £35 each for an extremely comfortable night! Pair that with 6.3% cashback and you’ll also have £4.50 cashback waiting for you when you get back!


4/ Cardiff – Wales

Sticking to Wales you can grab a one night stay in Cardiff for £41.62 at Sleeperz (grab cashback from and pay just £21 for you both to take a bus tour! That’s only £62.62 for a fab 2 days in Wales, getting to view all the tourist attractions and also getting time to explore the city yourself. The hotel is perfectly located with being only 0.2km from the Train station, 0.4km from the Millennium Stadium and 0.6km from Cardiff Castle. Everything is literally on your doorstep. A perfect budget holiday.


5/ Budapest – Hungary

Budapest is an architectural treasure you can’t afford to miss! With neoclassical, eclectic, baroque and art nouveau structures, it’s a pleasure for the eyes to see. The city is located on the Danube River, and just off the river is the Hungarian parliament building, a fantastic building rivalling our own houses of parliament.

Hungary is now fully integrated into the EU, so you won’t be getting beers for a few pence but it’s still good value for money and flights and accommodation are great for a capital city if you book in the January Sales.
