Great City Break Destinations Under £400
If heading abroad, flight inclusive holidays are usually one of the best ways to book, although the Eurostar can also be ideal. Whichever way you choose to travel, there are some fantastic destinations in the UK and Europe.
Paris should be on everyone's hit list of cities to visit. Even if you've been before, there's plenty just waiting to be discovered still.
Whether you're hoping to visit the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain, or you want to go back to your favourite gelato shop, bella Roma is the quintessential city to explore.
You can enjoy the narrow streets and canals of Venice on this sort of budget. Hotels and restaurants in the main areas can bump up the cost, but staying on the outskirts can provide great value.
Not a city you might automatically think of but a fantastic city break destination nonetheless. Helsinki provides more of an unusual trip, especially if you've never been to the nordic countries.
Marrakech is definitely one city worth checking out. The sights, sounds and smells will amaze, and be sure to book into a Riad for that little bit of quiet after a day out in the craziness.
How To Book A City Break Under £400pp
Booking a flight and hotel package holiday is easy and there are so many holiday deals available. One option is to book your flight separately from your accommodation, either because you're booking an Airbnb apartment, or cheap Ryanair flights, however, this wouldn't be financially protected. Instead, you're often better off booking through a tour operator or travel agent like Expedia, easyJet Holidays or Jet2 City Breaks which are members of the ABTA and ATOL scheme.
There are a number of key ways to keep within your budget. Avoiding peak times is a big one. Flying out on Thursday and Friday nights, and returning on a Sunday or Monday evening can really push your holiday cost up. Package holidays (booking your flight and accommodation together) can also help you secure some great deals and reduce the cost of your holiday.
City Break Types Under £400pp
From a quick 2 day escape, to 7 nights exploring multiple cities, there are plenty of types to check out. Here are a few popular ones:
If you're flexible a last minute city break can be an excellent option. If you're in London booking flights from London Gatwick, Stansted or Luton airports can open up your options dramatically, adding more airline options.
