Tips For A Budget City Break


This year I've been trying to do as much travelling as poosible without breaking the bank, so here are some of my top tips for a budget weekend away:

Be flexible with where you go - Some cities are generally cheaper to travel to in comparison to others. For example, Madrid vs Barcelona.

Look at prices for different dates - Compare the prices of flying on different days as well as the price of flights for different weekends. For example, sometimes going away Friday - Sunday is cheaper than going away Saturday - Monday for the same weekend. 

Only take hand luggage - It's amazing how much you can fit in cabin-sized suitcases!

Spend time researching a hotel - How far away is the hotel from the city centre? Don't always go for the cheapest place if you're going to pay more for public transport when you get there.
