Looking for low cost bargains? Skyscanner travel editor, Sam Baldwin, uses Skyscanner’s popular “UK to Everywhere” search feature and handpicks three bargain destinations that are well worth a look.
Dubrovnik, Croatia (from £57 return) is tipped to be popular this summer. It’s not just the warm weather, extensive islands and amazing beaches along the Adriatic coast that are drawing attention but also the fact that Croatia is not in the eurozone, which means your pound stretches further than in many of the more traditional beach hotspots.
Find cheap flights to Dubrovnik from 12 UK airports including Liverpool, London Gatwick,
Edinburgh and Manchester. Zargreb, Pula and Split are also popular entry points in to Croatia.
Faro, Portugal (from £18 return) – another big beach destination, Faro is the capital of the popular Algarve region which boasts over 300 days of sunshine and over 100 sandy beaches. Holidays in the Algarve offer a choice of beach resorts to suit everyone from party-hungry hedonists to romantic couples. If you fancy a little time away from the sand, try the marine aquarium in Albufeira, go go-karting at Almancil or take a jeep safari through Carvoeiro.
Find cheap flights to Faro from 25 UK airports including London airports, Newcastle, Bristol, Liverpool, East Midlands, Glasgow and Cardiff.
Budapest, Hungary (from £32 return) – poor old Hungary has taken a battering in the whole economic downturn; bad for Hungarians, good for us, as your pound will still go far against Hungary’s Forint, meaning Hungary is cheap. Budapest, which is Hungary’s capital, is great for a weekend break with ornate coffee bars and lively nightlife; be sure to get into hot water at one of the city’s opulent bathhouses too.
Find cheap flights to Budapest from 8 airports in the UK, including all the London airports, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester and Liverpool.
