I would love to go skiing but I would like to try it out 1st closer to home & for a long weekend, what would be the cheapest place to go?
Poland and in particular Zakopane.
More ski hills there than traditional resorts but does give you a feel for it and the resort of Bialka Tatraska is only a short drive away when you get a bit better and can ski the blue runs.
Cost for a week would be around £500 all in with all meals, drinks and lessons equipment etc etc
Lot of information on this site http://www.discoverzakopane.com/skiing.html
A rough example would be
Flights - £60 return to Krakow
Transfers local bus to Zakopane - £10 return
accommodation- £140 per person
Ski pass £70
Equipment £50
So thats around £330? food and drink is cheap out there and delicious too!
This is a nice resort , i still go back every year! even if only for a weekend http://bialkatatrzanska.pl/ceny-karnetow-na-sezon-20152016/

That's the area I was thinking of, Zakopane. I went there in summer and the hostel were talking about skiing in winter and how popular it is. Agree, food and drink are really cheap and you could spend some time in Krakow and some in Zakopane. I'll look into this for a future deal.


​Feel free to PM and im happy to help. I've a fondness to the place and always sending people there! Perfect place to learn to ski

Skiing and cheap don't really go together I'm afraid. You can do it, but that probably relies on doing it with mates. We did 2.5 days on the slopes in Tignes for £250 each, but, my cousin owned the little apartment we went to / 4 of us squeezed into one car / we self catered / we self drank / we all had clothing.

You would be best served by saving a little and taking a package for a week. Have some lessons on a dry slope or indoor place before you go. Borrow clothing, you will need a decent couple of baselayers that wick sweat. Waterproof trousers (cos you will topple over a fair bit - if you don't, you ain't pushing yourself enough!). Decent waterproof gloves, mitts tend to be warmer if you're a coldy. You'll be amazed what's in mates cupboards - no one will wear ski gear out in a week yet everyone wants the latest gear so most kit you can borrow is in a well good condition!

Try to do some leg exercises from 12 weeks in advance to get the most out of it - and prepare to burn the candle at both ends! You will need a holiday to recover when you get back, and your liver will hate you :):)

Then you'll be hooked and it will be the first holiday you book up every year!

Highly recommend Italy for the food, the drink, the instructors and it's relatively cheap...

Yes it is considerably more for hotels in the south. I guess it just depends on what you want.

U probably wont get much sun in that resort in the winter, the north of the island aint the best because of the big mountain in between it and the sun
That's useful to know. You can easily change your hotel for extra cost as there is plenty of hotels to choose from. I guess it is still going to be warmer than the UK and without going long haul you can pretty much guarantee some winter sun.

oh without a doubt, change hotel to one in the south and you will get reasonably decent weather, probably the odd rainy or cloudy day but a hell of a lot better than here, been at xmas a few times

I did see this one, but only the hostel is available and for a private room with balcony it is €100 a night which seemed a bit expensive for a hostel.

Riga, Latvia....
Pro Tip: Hot girls are dangerous there... Go after the ugly ones and you're safe.
When you come from UK to Latvia EVERY girl will be Hot for you ;) That country hasn't been hit by obesity wave and people there don't have to eat the heavily processed food as you can get every fruit/veg fresh there all year round and for 5x less than in UK.

Really not that different and certainly not low obesity
"For both women and men aged 18 years and over, the lowest proportions of the population considered to be obese in 2008 were observed in Romania (8.0 % for women and 7.6 % for men), Italy (9.3 % and 11.3 %), Bulgaria (11.3 % and 11.6 %) and France (12.7 % and 11.7 %). The highest proportions of women who were obese were recorded in the United Kingdom (23.9 %), Malta (21.1 %), Latvia (20.9 %) and Estonia (20.5 %), and of men in Malta (24.7 %), the United Kingdom (22.1 %) and Hungary (21.4 %)."

They were £60 last year , £151 in person now or £171 ( plus cost of recorded delivery both ways) by post. They take 4 days eg take up on the Monday and ready to collect on the Thursday and that is not the express service .
Wow. £171 for a visa! I went to China for one day in March and hiked the wall at Mutianyu (stopover on the way to NZ). You can get in for nothing if you stay for less than 3 days. I was thinking about going back for a week or two but given the cost of a visa now I don't think I'll bother!
This is from Birmingham, is the price the same from London?

How long are the flights?

Cheers!

Don't forget to count the cost of the visa. For a British passport holder it's currently an eye-watering £171.
Where did you get that figure from? I got mine in the london chinese visa centre for £60... only took 4 days as well

Mine was around that figure too but I believe they put their prices up.

I hope the lions have now gone, it really upset me! Having seen them a few months earlier in Africa in their natural habitat with Kilimanjaro in the background I can honestly say a glass box in a casino/hotel is not where they belong! Just my opinion......
Stayed at MGM Grand 6 years ago. Great hotel with great service. They had real lions in a huge glass box.

They gave us $100 free to use in their casino, free meals, vip passes to pool party and night club...all at their hotel. Amazing time with mates.

We did a similar trip (last month)with a hire car going from Madrid airport to Alicante,Valencia and back to Madrid. The only tolls were on the Mediterranean highway. And fuel was cheap enough especially if you only get a small car. Never paid more than 12 euros a day parking. Valencia and Madrid had really easy to use public transport and then the car isn't needed.

The thing we had forgotten after the last few years going to Germany, Holland and the south of France is that it is still possible to get cheap food and drink in Spain.

Brilliant deal. I did this on a year out in 2005, amazing memories. But it took me 5 weeks to drive from Sydney to Cairns. And I lived in Sydney for 3 months and Cairns the same. This duration is not going to touch the surface of seeing Australia. But if you really want to go and there is no other option then this deal is a bargain. But Oz is incredibly expensive at the moment.

You mean food and drink?


Absolutely everything in oz. 50% more money than uk.

great idea, great prices. If you have never been to Oz before, This is a massive drive that you will not want to do, think new York to Orlando and back again for the coastal distances. it will also be winter in Oz. so temperature will be poor until you reach Brisbane and further north.

plus most of the barrier reef is dead or dying :(


Great effort by the OP but this is far too much land to cover in 2 weeks. Better to stick to a smaller area as otherwise it won't feel like a holiday and will be too rushed. A relocation deal is good for getting a cheap camper van and going from one place to another but that's it, it's no good for a holiday (as you need to get the van from one place to another in a set period of time). Great for backpackers to get from place to place cheap, but not great as a holiday as you don't really get time to spend 'holidaying' as your main aim is to get the van to its destination.

Where did you book the air lingus flights? Whenever I look they start at £450 each! Found some cheap hotels though
I did new york over Christmas last year, if you havent done this before please take note. . . christmas eve onwards, in new york itself gets un believably crowded, i mean it is ridiculous. ive been peak summer before now and it has been fine.

we found ourselves having to go a good 2 or 3 blocks out just to try and get anywhere. Trying to get into places to eat was difficult, luckily we had a reservation for christmas dinner. My advise would be to go on the week running upto christmas.

on another note, i got the same dates last year a lot cheaper.

How would this be for a first-timer in NY? Looking at the dates I'm wandering how much of NY would be closed for the holidays 24/25/26 particularly. Does any one have experience of this?

I think it would be amazing! I really don't think you will have a problem finding things open and things to do. If you are heading to a restaurant on Christmas eve then I would certainly book well in advance, same for Christmas day. I'm sure there will be plenty of things open still on Christmas day and most certainly 26th.

Verona is one of my favorite Italian cities and the opera is amazing.

Some tips for the opera I wish I'd known, take a bottle of water its hot when you arrive( don't drink it all as toilets are limited like a music festival), rent at least 2 pillows on your way up pp and take a jacket / cardigan it will be god under your legs at the start and then it gets chilly, so you may want to put it on.

Recommend not staying 4km from the city in Verona.
Many Italian 'tourist' cities have their museum cards (Firenze card/ Venezia Unica/Roma Pass). None are worth buying IMHO unless you are really pushed for time and must skip the queue - you won't get value by visiting 16 museums in 48 hours but it may be worthwhile for those who loathe standing in line.
Other than that its all good.

I used the Verona card and found it great value as we visited almost everything on the card, good if you like art, churches etc. It all depends on your interests to be honest but research what you intend to do. With the opera Verona will be very busy and you will pay a premium for city centre hotels and may struggle with parking. We have been a couple of times once in the centre and another time just outside and used the bus to get to and from the centre, easy enough.

These vans are a bit basic and cheap.
Considering the open spaces and needs of a human you at least need a chemical loo on board.
crank_girl
would this be suitable for a wheelchair user?

I'm not sure, best to email the company and ask them. I would probably say your mean issue would be room in the campervan and the height for getting in and out but they have others available. I would check it out with the company though.

No shower or loos in the van? Am I looking at the right one.
Thanks op great deal
Nope it's a campervan not a motorhome so no shower or toilet. Think of it like one step up from a tent. The motorhome I am hiring with shower and toilet for two weeks has cost over £2k but it has all mod-cons, fridge, toaster etc, GPS, WiFi and all linen, cooking facilities etc, unlimited km and comprehensive insurance. In a campervan you are reliant on public toilets or showers in the swimming pools (showers are mandatory).

Probably yes. I didn't see single rooms unfortunately. There were some good looking hostels in Bologna and if you are willing to share bathrooms there are even cheaper and better rated places to stay.
I will have to research it later. Have you booked this or are you undecided?

Oh no I'm in the North West but I have done something similar myself. Bologna is a lovely city and its so easy using the trains too. I only suggest places to stay I'd be happy in myself and staying in the historic centre.

Looks great I suppose the rooms are the same price even if it is just me myself and I?;)

I'm sure someone asked for Malaysia so here is a little idea of a trip that incorporates some city life and some of Borneo with some idea of places to visit. There are cheaper hotels and you will need…

just got back from Borneo, did KK to Sandakan via lahad Datu and the kinabatangan river. KK climb will take 2 full days minimum, mind...fantastic price, though!
We set off on the climb at 9am one morning, got to the peak just before sunset and got back to the bottom at 1pm in the afternoon.

The hotel listed was in KK, so factor in at least a couple of hours to get to and from the national park...so two days.

Any innoculations needed for Malaysia
No, only thing to watch out for is if there are any denggi fever reports. Unlikely in central kuala lumpur though as it tends happen closer to more residential areas (clogged drains, trapped water in vegetation, etc).

Maybe I'd advise upping the good bacteria in your gut so that you can enjoy the local cuisines will less fear. Rule of thumb in Malaysia is the dirtier the eatery looks, the better the food will be.

Amazing... What a country. Friendly locals, super safe, great food and much to see and explore.

We got stuck in langkawi town centre one evening and couldn't get a taxi back to our hot so a local offered up a lift in return for a cheap fee. You probably wouldn't take up that offer anywhere else!
Very glad you had such a memorable and pleasant experience! :3

Malaysians are generally warm but that's very good outcome - Hopefully the cheap fee you mentioned was less than £10 though! Travelling from the main part of Langkawi to the more northern section doesn't really cost that much.

I'm sure you can fly direct to KL from heathrow with malaysian and cut out all the wasted time.

We got a cracking deal with Expedia for the Vdara , they had an offer on pay for 5 nights get 3 free £450


​That's a. Bargin, vdara is a nice place. Interesting fact, was built as condos (we looked at veer) in 2007, but due to the crash and lack of take up, mgm converted into a no hotel casino instead. Mandarin Oriental was supposed to be the only non casino hotel in City centre..

Managed to convince the wife for a. Week in June/July, so just started looking. Want 1 night Venetian / Cosmo then 3/4 Bellagio.

So excited...
Vdara is a lovely hotel, rooms are amazing, no casino but it's actually quite nice to not have one- also the bellagio is attached by a tunnel so it only takes 5 mins to get get to it.

vdara doesnt have a casino.and i find it hard to believe all in for 2 for 950-1250..also resort fee is about $32 per night.
read read read , i said resort fee payable at hotel .


​yes i noticed that..i should know ive been going since 2003 every year at least once.i can also state that treasure island isnt the best around that part of the strip.not the same standard as the vdara.anyhow not bad deal with poor flights and also factor in the poor £ to the $....just saying...enjoy.

Flight + Hotel £1,351.42
i was £100 out , justed checked my expedia booking !!!!!!

So you are departing and returning to Dublin. Have you included a return flight to Dublin in this cost or do you live in Ireland? I really hope you aren't intending to try and exit in LHR on that return flight if it is only a couple of hours later and you have hold luggage!!!! Dublin departures are always cheaper and I could post many a deal from Dublin around similar prices. Dublin have great offers on flights so it was probably these that made the overall cost of your holiday cheaper not the hotel. When you say it is £1351 that doesn't include resort fees of about £200 and getting to and from Dublin, add on a few £ for the bus or taxi from Vegas airport so I'd say it will be more like £1600ish minimum for 2.

BTW I'd edit that post to remove your reservation number it could be dangerous leaving it on the site!!! Someone could ring up and potentially edit your reservation.

A nice wee place to call to is Whitehead, great craft shops/cafes and a lovely walk along shore from Whitehead to Blackhead Lighthouse!
How could you recommend Whitehead and not mention The Gobbins? :|https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g2528878-d3398516-Reviews-The_Gobbins-Whitehead_County_Antrim_Northern_Ireland.html
I quite agree, however they had some damage to footpaths in a recent bad storm and The Gobbins have been closed - not sure when they re-open!

Parking at the rope bridge is free, you pay to cross the bridge only, if you don't want to cross it, you can park and walk to it for free. Ballintoy harbour is 20 min walk from the rope bridge, also used in GOT

Kinda annoying that the UK gov charges silly amount of tax & there is an easy way around it by starting your long haul in another country - therefore only paying short haul taxes.
So you end up flying Manchester to Dublin to Heathrow to NYC
Still... don't think £780 is a good price though - especially out of season.
Yeah Dublin is always good for departures to America, saves a fair few £. Even comparing with Norwegian, which by time you add checked luggage which I'd strongly recommend for Ny, they generally end up still being good value. You can get cheaper beginning/end Feb as I said in the original post, but to include Valentines specifically this is a good deal. If you aren't particular fussed on going at this time of year I'd look for other offers.
so its a good deal because of valentine day? pffff
You will prob be able to do it just as cheap if not cheaper when Virgin & BA run their seat sale & fly direct.
£780 for NY flights £40 for dublin hotel (& transport between hotel / airport both ways which is not mentioned), £90 for Ryanair flight. = £910
Currently fly direct in a non sale ticket with virgin for £960
Norweigian Air for £870

Yep as I said in the listing it's a deal specifically for those looking to be in NY on Valentines day. A couple of weeks earlier or later and you can get direct flights from Manchester with Virgin sub £400. At the moment you're looking at about £460 for flights with KLM or Finnair from Manchester. It also depends whether including Dublin is a bother to you or not.

Waiting for sale prices can pay off as you say, depending on what dates you want exactly. Either way the hotel is now not available at the price I posted so the deal needs expiring.

Heat added as it will be very cold at that time of year in New York
Just bin there Valentine's Day 2016 and it was the coldest day in 100 years - 15 c but there after it was ok (2 days later it was + 13 c !!!! ) you obviously take your chances with the weather but wrap up well and not a problem on a plus point you don't have to queue for attractions .... I would definitely go this time of year again but got 5 days in Newyork with BA airways booking whole package flight and hotel, and transfer to and from airport cheaper than above quote and only booked Nov 15 in a fab hotel central Manhattan 4 star larger than normal room plus mini kitchen microwave , fridge , coffee machine and dishwasher !! Fab !
Could you post this deal.Would be interested.Thanks
Some British Airways packages here
I did look here but if you're specifically after Valentine's Day the ones I tried when I clicked the prices went up to over £800 for 6 nights but you may find something.
I booked it back in Nov 2015 but think there was a sale just look out for the sales on British airways I paid about £2326 for 2 adults and 2 kids staying at the Manhattan club suites in a junior exec room 20th floor excellent location and having the mini kitchen was very useful for breakfast that was for 5 nights Ncl - Heathrow - Jfk and price also included transfers both ways once there. All booked thro BA !! To be fair looked at other hotels more expensive but didn't intend to spend much time in the room and we didn't space is a premium in NY and the dimensions of the room was great with a half wall separating our bed from the kids
Thanks.It's just the type of room I'm looking for.My brothers getting married and it's our 25th wedding anniversary.We're looking after brothers 2 kids for first 5 days and they're picky eaters so having mini kitchenette would be great.
hopefully the best western Dublin is finished by then - its a building site atm
