Holidays Under £150pp
A guide to getting holidays for under £150 per person
Holidays under £150 per person are possible both in the UK and abroad but you'll need to keep your expectations low and flexibility high. Check out the UKs many holiday parks for a fun, family friendly holiday within budget, or look further afield at city breaks and holidays in the Sun. Whichever type of holiday you're after, you're sure to find your accommodation and flight options under budget if you keep an open mind.
Budget Friendly Destinations
Top Destinations Under £150
Staying in the UK for your holiday is going to be one of the best ways to keep the cost under £150 per person, skipping the airport taxes (and airport security queues). Take a look at holiday parks, and try collecting the Daily Mail holiday codes and Sun holiday codes, at certain times of the year to get a bargain holiday. These holidays are often advertised at £9.50 and £15 but you might want to add on a few extras like entertainment passes. Booking with companies like Park Holidays UK and Haven, you can grab a budget break from as little as £69 for a fun filled family holiday.
If you want to get abroad for less than £150, the Algarve is a good area to look at. You'll likely only get a 3 or 4 night holiday, but it is still possible to book your flight and hotel under budget (even if it's only self catering). Flights to the Algarve, especially in low-season can be very affordable with low cost airlines, and the range of accommodation options means you can grab yourself a bargain.
It might only be for a couple of nights, but be flexible with dates and your hotel and you could grab yourself a cheap holiday for less than £150 per person. Low cost flights (and at less than desirable times, including avoiding the school holidays) will be key to saving money here. Some of the best holiday deals to Spain will be midweek.
Types Of Holiday On A Budget
All Inclusive Holidays Under £150pp
Finding an all inclusive holiday under £150 per person is unlikely unless you're really lucky and can travel in the middle of the night and stay at a random 2 or 3 star hotel. It will likely only be just a couple of days too, which is better than nothing but not as good as a week. You can definitely keep the cost down and have more choice by going self catering or room only.
When you're only staying 2 or 3 nights, there are some fab city break destinations you could find yourself in for less than £150. Just be aware of what you'll spend when you get there as this can easily add up. Try places like Denmark and Amsterdam which have plenty of cheap flights from the UK. KLM isn't the cheapest but does offer flights from many regional airports including Bristol, Leeds Bradford and Newcastle.
With beach holiday destinations like Spain and Portugal, many of the cheapest hotels won't be by the sea, but will be walking distance or a short bus ride away. Some of the best deals might be at hotels which don't have swimming pools, in which case easy access to the beach is important for ensuring you get to relax in the sunshine. Try areas like the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca (including Benidorm) which have lots of cheap accommodation options.
Top Tips For A Cheap Holiday
Last Minute Trips
Sometimes booking far in advance can help you secure a low price, but so can booking at the last minute. With plane seats and hotel rooms going empty, companies are keen to fill them, even at a lower rate. Take a look at TUI's late deals which can save you heaps, plus they are ABTA and ATOL protected for your financial peace of mind.
Being flexible on your destination, dates of travel and flight times can really help to bring the cost of a break under your budget. Early morning and late night flights are often cheaper, as is avoiding the weekends if you can. If you fancy a sunshine holiday, while you might find one destination like Majorca is out of your budget, another one like Salou is within your price range.
One of the best things you can do to save money is compare holiday prices.
