Help with holiday planning

So heres the deal.

Just planning my holidays just now but I cant afford a long haul holiday this year so looks like it will have to be in Europe or thereabouts.

Also, I dont want to go to a Euro currency using country as it cost too much.

Can anyone recommend anywhere under these criterias? My budget is probably about £400 per person for August. Don't really need anything specific just more of places people have been thats good and doesnt use Euros.

Cheers!

If you go all inclusive the euro won't mean a lot wherever you are (not my thing but can be a cheap deal), try looking at fligths seperate to Hotels, Thomson do good prices for hotels only and can pick all inclusive if you want. You also get the services of the rep if you need them.

hasnt sterling fallen against all currencies to a large extent so this avoidance of euro only countries isn't gonna help?

Yeah would prefer abroad with the sun. This country is depressing enough. Anyone been to Bulgaria or Croatia?

I agree AI is the way to go - if you are going to Europe.

Also booking in January you often get free kids spaces - if you need them

i visited Tunisia last year, not in August though. it wll be hot there in August. Look into Spain, due to euro they have reduced the cost off the holiday, if you do go spain book half board, that way you neednt spend so much when you get there. Salou is brilliant for kids. Tunisia would be more for couples. but thats just my opinion. good luck with youre hunting. ps i live in Devon. it always rains in August. Cornwall is nice but i often find that the attractions can be expensive when visiting parks. John Fowler do good deals, or Park Dean.

Friends went AI to Bulgaria last summer and the food as awful-granted each hotel may be different-but not sure i'd go now.

Went to Croatia years ago and it was great-but you really need someone who has been more recently-have you tried looking on Expedia or somewhere just at the reviews for some ideas?

I would book the time off work and then just wait.

I've had a look but sometimes I find the reviews are mostly from people with a gripe about somewhere as folk who have had a faultless holiday dont tend to write them.

I thought here would be better as it'll be real recommendations from our HUKD community.

I'd be really wary of the cost of food & drink when you get out there - do some research before you book what to expect.

We had a great AI holiday in Kos last year, food was really nice. But our view was that we would go out and eat when we wanted - but had the AI to fall back on when we fell short of money.

Well when we went out - Cola was £4-5 cheapest - A meal was very expensive. We overheard people on the plane complaining that they hadn't taken enough money to feed themselves by eating out.

I guess if you go Self catering - make sure you have a good supermarket nearby (especially if you need things for babies - like nappies, milk, or wipes) We tried to walk to a few supermarkets, but being on the outskirts of a town in Rhodes - we spent money on taxi's cos we couldn't fight to get on the buses with the shopping.

Turkey (I go every year at least twice) or Tunisia

Ditch europe you can get to orlando with BA for £350ish via Gatwick at the moment (inclusive of internal flight from Glasgow)! Who cares where you sleep when you get there!

i have seen a great deal to toronto with hayes and jarvis for 301 4star with flights for 4 nights, goes late april
#15
I think everybody will be thinking the same thing this year, try to avoid Euro places. As a result its likely places like Turkey will become more expensive.

Stay at home and treat yourself to a big TV!

On the Thomson website Egypt is very cheap but I dont know about where you can source flights, I think it was under £300 for three people sharing a room half board in august.

Non-Euro currency countries worth considering - Croatia, Egypt and wait for it.........

Gibraltar!
