Ol’ TripDad is about to tell you some of the very best ways to find a very cheap holiday for yourself straight away. Whether you’re wanting to simply blast over to Amsterdam or a full holiday abroad, I’m about to give you the complete tip off.
Finding Very Cheap Holidays
Nobody wants to pay full whack – so, first off, it’s good to get a feel for where you want to go. Is it a quick jaunt over to the canals of Amsterdam or you’re wanting to take in a tad of wine and bull-fighting down in Spain… knowing if you want a very cheap holiday in Turkey or Tenerife will help you hone your search at the onset. Although, if you have no clue or care of where you want to land, you can always search for very cheap last minute deals over on LastMinute.com (I’ll tell you a bit more about that in a moment).
Very Very Very Cheap Holidays to Anywhere?
Prior to looking ‘just anywhere’ you might want to do at least a little bit of research. For instance, according to HolidaysFrom.co.uk the top three cheap holiday destinations are:
Very cheap holidays in Spain are always a family favourite, with lots of family friendly resorts you would be mad to miss it.
The up and coming Turkey is sure to be a big hit again, What other country could you do 5 star living at 3 star prices. Don’t miss very cheap holidays to Turkey.
You’ve heard it before, Florida the sunshine capital. Getting a very cheap holiday to Florida can really put your holiday schedule into another leaugue, will you be lucky enough to find a very cheap Florida holiday?
If you just followed the advice above looking for very cheap holidays willy nilly then you might end up in some trouble in Turkey, for instance. At the time of writing, the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office there are some very serious reasons to stay away from parts of Turkey.
- We advise against all but essential travel to the provinces of Hakkari, Sirnak, Siirt and Tunceli. Visitors should remain vigilant when travelling in other provinces in south eastern Turkey.
- There is a high threat from terrorism in Turkey and a number of terrorist groups remain active in the country. Statements have been made in the press indicating that attacks could take place against tourists or places used by foreigners. (please visit the FCO for more).
- 2,673,565 British nationals visited Turkey in 2010 (Source: Ministry of Tourism). Most visits are trouble-free.
- You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling to Turkey.
As you can see, the FCO can be a great way to make sure your very cheap holidays are only to the most safest of places. If you want an incredible alternative to Turkey, we highly recommend Romania or Hungary for one of your next very cheap holidays. Do a little research in that direction and come back to TripDad to let us know how your very cheap holidays to Hungary or Romania went for you.
What Kind Very Cheap Holidays Are You Wanting?
Another consideration before jumping into your bargain holiday search would be what kind of very cheap holidays are you looking for?
Let’s take the top choice for very cheap holidays from above as an example (Spain).

So, know where you want to go and what you want to do before you start searching for very cheap flights, hotels or even locations. It’ll only take a few minutes and it will pay you dividends in excitement the second you land.
