Somewhere Special on a Shoestring

With so much choice, finding somewhere that little bit special to spend your summer holiday should be a fun and rewarding experience. But when your choice of getaway is dictated by a strict budget, sometimes your dreams of jetting off to paradise turn into the same old holiday on the Costa Blanca. That’s not to say the Spanish coast should be sniffed at; but after the umpteenth holiday there it’s time for somewhere a little different.

And where better than the bewitching sights and ancient cultures of Egypt? Here you’ve got a vast range of holiday experiences rolled into one - with mesmerising beaches and crystal clear waters by the coast, and some of the most important historical sites known to humankind.

Or for somewhere completely different, which places the emphasis firmly on family fun, Florida is hard to beat - and all inclusive USA holidays are a great way to save money. If you’re planning to spend time by the pool and in the theme parks, and if you don’t want the hassle of cooking or preparing meals, all inclusive holidays are a great solution. All meals, snacks and drinks are included which can actually help you to save money while you’re there - and means you won’t have to worry about overspending by eating out at night. And if you plan to spend the odd day out exploring, many all inclusive hotels or resorts will provide you with a packed lunch too.

So whatever you want out of your holiday, you can always find somewhere that little bit special to suit both you and your pocket.
