Great Getaways on a Budget

[This article was made possible with support from: Thomas Cook]

Getting away for a few days, a week or a fortnight is the highlight of many people’s year, as it’s the perfect chance to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life and jet off somewhere new and exciting. Depending on what you’re after, holidays can be an affordable break or an expensive luxury. But even if you have a strict budget with a limited spending allowance, there’s no need for you to stay at home this summer.There are an abundance of low-cost holidays available stretching right across Europe. As one of the most widely visited destinations for cheap holidays, Greeceis the perfect example. It’s a popular destination and tour operators frequently compete with each other to offer the best holidays and the lowest prices, so you’ll often find some great cut-price discounts on the cost of holidaying here.

If you’re after a package holiday you’re never too far from a great low-cost break. For instance, Thomas Cook holiday bargains can be found both online and on the high street, offering not just discounts on the cost of the holiday but also on additional elements such as hotel or room upgrades, free kids’ places and more. With a package holiday you get return flights and nightly accommodation included in the cost, along with transfers to and from your hotel.

You’ll also benefit from the guidance of a locally-based representative who is on hand to offer help and advice whenever you need it. In case things go wrong on holiday, this is an invaluable service. But thankfully, in most cases you’ll only need them in positive scenarios – such as booking a day trip, enquiring about the local beauty spots, or asking for help finding the best café or patisserie. It’s just one more thing to help make your holiday that little bit sweeter.
