Where to go this summer on a budget

Enjoy a fun filled family holiday on a budget this summer by visiting one of these fantastic destinations! You’ll find many excellent attractions, beautiful beaches, cheap hotels and you’ll make your pound go further – cos let’s face it; kids are expensive enough as it is!

The Algarve, Portugal

Algarve holidays are perfect for families! The famous stretch of scenic coastline is filled with activities from watersports on the beautiful sandy beaches, near Albufeira and Faro, to entertaining waterparks such as Zoomarine and Aqualand Algarve. Why not relax by taking a boat trip along the coast on a dolphin watching expedition or stay active by learning how to kayak. You could go on a bike ride through the countryside or simply enjoy a jeep safari. The huge selection of hotels and resorts make it very price competitive, so enjoy a fun filled holiday on a budget. With a short flight time of only 2 hours and 45 minutes you also won’t have the stress with young kids on a long flight.


Menorca, Spain

The Spanish island of Menorca is where you can enjoy an unforgettable family holiday on a budget. You’ll find a grand selection of cheap hotels in fun resorts which are close to some really fantastic attractions that you just have to go to. The large waterparks Aqua Center and Aqua Rock are particularly impressive, with the latter featuring a giant karting track! In Menorca, you’re never far from a soft sandy beach where you can relax whilst the kids play. Horse riding here is also great fun and you can hire bikes for some really great family bike rides. The flight time to Menorca is even shorter at just 2 hours and 15 minutes, so what are you waiting for?


Corfu, Greece

Don’t be put off visiting Greece for your holiday this summer, there has never been a better time to go! In fact, you’ll be able to find some excellent family holiday bargains – with plenty of fun to be had; the island of Corfu is a fantastic summer choice. Greece is renowned for its outstanding selection of beaches, so relax and soak up the sun with some stunning views. For the kids (well…really the parents), there is one of the best waterparks we’ve ever been to – Aqualand Corfu! With a lazy river and some pretty impressive slides, you’ll feel refreshed but worn out after a day climbing all the stairs to the highest waterslides – but it’s totally worth it! If waterparks aren’t your thing, there are hundreds of donkeys at the Corfu Donkey Rescue to visit, or you could discover the marine life on a boat tour. The flight time here is approx 3 hours, so again a short enough flight for families with younger children.
