Think you can’t afford a weekend break?

Fancy a few days away with the girls but don’t think your budget will stretch? Read these top tips and you’ll be sipping piña colada’s by the beach – well not quite, but a beer in a nice hotel would do us just fine…

Check out online deals
Seriously, there are so many online deal sites where you can pick up a gorgeous hotel for next to nothing. Try not to book direct through the hotel as you aren’t likely to nab any deals doing this.

Only do carry on
If you want to head abroad for a few days, ditch the bags. Only do carry on and you can save yourself a fortune. If possible, wear as much clothes as possible if you can’t fit it all in your carry on – you might be a bit hot, but it will be worth it!

Be flexible
If possible, be flexi with your dates. Avoid Bank Holidays and weeks when schools are closed. This is the time when accommodation is the most expensive.
