Scouring the length and breadth of the planet, we’ve discovered the best value travel destinations and worldwide vacation hotspots to help Brits save without sacrificing their holidays.
Romantic Valentine’s Getaways
- UK – Stunning Suffolk
For a romantic break without breaking the bank, Suffolk has a lot to offer; think dreamy English villages, intimate restaurants and secluded walks on the unspoilt beaches. Ipswich is the heart of it all, with a beautiful waterfront and marina to explore.
- UK – Bathing in Bath
Another of the UK’s romance hotspots, Bath can trace its lineage to pre-Roman days. While it’s not possible to bathe in the original Roman baths, the nearby Thermae Bath Spa allow you to soak up the romantic atmosphere in Britain’s only natural warm, mineral-rich waters.
- UK – Horsing around in the New Forest
Discover the wild woodlands of the UK’s New Forest for a Valentine’s Day getaway you’ll never forget. Take a horseback trek to uncover the beautiful glades, sprawling moors and impressive cliffs, before finding a cosy pub for a romantic evening.
- Worldwide - Serene St. Lucia
St. Lucia is an island of two halves. It’s the perfect place for adventures through the lush jungles and over awe-inspiring volcanoes, and at the same time it’s the ideal destination for lazing around on secluded beaches by the crystal-clear ocean.
- Worldwide – Take a bite of the Big Apple
It’s a helluva town. From the bustle of Downtown to the cool of Brooklyn, via the hipster heartland of East Village; New York is a destination well worth visiting. A city break like no other, you’ll need more than a weekend to soak up the true atmosphere of the Big Apple; just be sure to grab some pizza!
- Worldwide – Quirky Queenstown, New Zealand
Outdoor activities are the name of the game in Queenstown: explore the best of the Southern Alps, from canoeing and biking, to white water rafting and skiing, or simply sit back at sample some of the country’s fine wines at one of the Southern Hemisphere’s best wineries. A great half-term holiday for the family.
- Europe – Magical Malta
The island of Malta is a family holiday paradise, with more stunning beaches than you can shake a Pastizzi at. From walks on the stunning coastline or dives in the incredible reefs, to discovering some of the world famous historical temples, there’s something to entice the entire family.
- Europe – Beautiful Barcelona
The Catalan capital is the ideal Easter destination. Meander down La Rambla, check out the majestic spires of Sagrada Familia, or soak up the atmosphere at Camp Nou. With a burgeoning craft brewery scene and some of the best tapas in the world, Barcalona should be high on your Easter destination list.
- Europe – Ice Ice baby
Iceland is experiencing a well-deserved surge in tourism, as a destination a little off the beaten track but still affordable and not a million miles away. From the powerful geysers, to the relaxing geothermal pools, plus the unique architecture and inspiring natural landforms, Iceland offers a different perspective on an Easter break.
