Top Tips To Get A Weekend Break Under £300pp
Typically for a two night weekend break, many people will aim to leave on a Friday and come back on a Sunday, being ready for work the next day, but if you can switch it round and stay Saturday to Monday, you could grab a bargain. Sunday nights can often be cheap at a lot of city centre hotels because weekend travellers are heading home already and corporate travellers may not arrive until the Monday. That means empty rooms that hotels want to fill and they often do by offering cheap rooms, helping you get away under your £300 budget.
How about trying a new, undiscovered destination? The flights to lesser travelled cities may not be as busy and therefore could be cheaper if you take advantage of airline sales and deals. You might also find that once you arrive, being off the beaten track a little will bring costs like dinner down because it isn't as touristy.
