If you've not booked a summer holiday yet, now is the time to secure (very) cheap flights. This August, a family of four can fly to top tourist destinations for under £100 return. And, I'm not talking obscure destinations deep in the hinterland of Europe. We're talking Ibiza, Palma and Venice to name a few top tourist hot spots!
Search on www.skyscanner.com to find your perfect location. Search UK to Everywhere for the whole month of August and see where you can spend your Euro this summer.
The Italian Lakes are £30 return with Ryanair whilst Palma Mallorca flights start at £36 from a few airports dotted up and down the UK, with a variety of airlines. Grenoble (on the French/Swiss border) is a mere £26 each, and Luxembourg, a great base for exploring central Europe, is only £16 return!
At this late stage, a lot of the best accommodation will have been snapped up but a quick search on www.booking.com shows that there are still decent rooms vacant for your family break. In Mallorca, for example, booking.com offers a hotel (which previous guests have scored 9.6 out of 10) advertising a week's stay in a two-bedroomed house (with pool) for only £683. So, flights and self-catering accommodation for the whole family comes in at less than £900.
See, a week's adventure for your family needn't break the bank.
