With times being tight, more people are looking to travel on a budget. There are a number of destinations, both within the UK and abroad that are kind to your pocket. So what destinations are there?
In the UK

Bath, UK
For those who are seeking to enjoy something very British, but on a budget, then Bath is the place for you!

When you first arrive in Bath, it is highly recommended you go and see the Royal Crescent. This is a crescent shaped set of 30 Georgian houses, built in the 18th century. A short walk from the city centre, this iconic location is often what springs to mind when people think of Bath.


If you are not wanting to explore the vast architecture, then Victoria Park is a charming location. With its boating pond, golf course and botanic gardens, you can spend the whole day here without once getting bored. Victoria Park is perfect for a picnic with the kids, or a romantic stroll with a loved one.

Glasgow, UK
Often overlooked as a tourist destination, Glasgow has an abundance of free things to do, as well as affordable accommodation. Prices start from £29 a night for a city centre hotel, even if you do have to provide your own bedding!


For those who enjoy cultural and historical pursuits, Glasgow has a variety of different museums and galleries to suit every taste. From the transport museum, showcasing cars, planes and even a real life clipper through to the Glasgow Kelvingrove art gallery and museum with a range of exhibitions that change throughout the months.

If you are wanting to see Glasgow’s unique nature, then head down to the West End and explore the botanical gardens before heading down to Byres Road. Byres road’s attractive cobbled streets and close quarters, will amaze and entice you to view the restaurants and bars located here.

In Europe

Lisbon, Portugal
With the Euro still low against the Pound, now is the time to go and visit Europe. With a number of airlines travelling daily to Lisbon, flights start at £45 return, if you book in advance.


No matter what your age or background, you must visit Rua Augusta. This beautiful part of the city is a wonder to behold. The Rua Augusta is entirely pedestrianised, with links between the central Rossio square and the Praça do Comércio, which is the main riverfront. The Rua Augusta is well known for its entertainment, with buskers and street entertainers at every turn.

Mаnу реорlе turn down a сhаnсе to trаvеl because they worry аbоut the соѕtѕ оf аіrfаrе. While flights mау hаvе been еxреnѕіvе a соuрlе of dесаdеѕ ago, thеу are relatively cheap thеѕе dауѕ.

As with all travel plans, especially when travelling outside of the UK, it is highly advised that you ensure you have fully comprehensive travel insurance, to ensure you are covered for every eventuality.

Paris, France
People often think of Paris, as pricey and the romantic getaway. However, take a step away from the main tourist spots and you will be entertained for hours.

Some of the top free attractions are: Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris, Cimitière du Père Lachaise and Parc des Buttes-Chaumont. Our recommendation however, for something extremely French, is to go and explore Marché aux Puces de St-Ouen. This flea market has everything and anything! The assortment of objects on sale range from bearskin rugs, antique tapestries and brass diving bells, to name just a few. Uniquely eccentric yet endearing, this marketplace is one of the many wonders of Paris.

Outside Europe

Wadi Rum, Jordan
Whilst travel to destinations outside of Europe, can be a little more expensive, this gem is somewhere you can go and relish what the world has to offer. By day, you can experience the vast landscape of Jordan’s ‘red’ desert, but the real value is of a night. You can sleep under the stars, tents are entirely optional! For those that have traveled here have called it an experience to remember.
