What I found was that when over there, if you did different trips like ice fishing/snowmobile, you'd get given some extremely warm kit to wear. That certainly helps. If you visit the Ice Hotel you can wear their snowsuits, although it's warmer inside the Hotel than outside. More or less constant -5 deg C inside whereas outside can dip massively. We saw the Lights lying on the River Torne..... Very beautiful - except for the nose hair.

No, but I do a lot of hiking anyway and have layers and warm gear anyway. I just had a down jacket, thermals and good socks. My hands are always cold and they suffered the most and I had good ski gloves. You don't need to buy specialist gear but I do recommend some thermals.

Funnily enough I am in the process of putting together a 12 day trip to Italy (Milan - Florence - Siena - Pisa - Rome)... but it would be during the Easter break. Having it for this price would have been amazing!

Does anyone know what is the quickest/easiest way to get to Stansted from Bournemouth? I had a look at National Express and it takes more than 5 hours!

totally recommend the hotel -except for the wait for the lift!

Stayed there this summer - really great rooms but you don't come to New York for the rooms - howver £70 is bargain for this hotel - I paid £200 for four of us.

Walking distance to the WTC, Liberty, Wall St, Walls St Bull, Battery Park, etc, and also the #1 line is really close by - less than 5 mins to take you up to, Time Square, Empire, Central Park and The Rock.

You can have breakfast onsite but if on a budget or want to experience other places there are quite a few cafes around - also Dunkin Donut is right outside - they have a online survey I filled in each day to get a free donut from the receipts - saved me about $30 - did the surveys on the free internet use PCs in the lobby whilst waiting for family to get ready. Tip - buy each item seperate so you get multiple receipts and multiple online codes. If you have kids you will be pleased to get them donuts for breakfast otherwise they actually do decent tea and breakfast.

I would recommend the 24hr cafe just around the corner - Cafe De Novo - really good breakfast baps and late night food - it is very deceptive, looks scruffy but noticed all the locals went there - a good sign and the food is relatively cheap compared to the rest. Also the big one for me - they treat the customers with respect compared to other places (avoid China Town and Charleys)

Century 21 is also about ten minutes walk - big discount store for your bargains but shop in New Jersey for the better deals or Macys - Do not go to to the shopping outlet in New Jersey - I forgot its name but it is the same as Bicester Village but more expensive!

Why not get a days lift pass and go skiing in Poiana Brasov too

Original Poster

Yes I have! Few years ago now though.

And (to the other poster) you aren't driving a car in the mountains, you leave it at the cable car station and catch the cable car to the mountains as the roads there are impassible due to snow! Yes it's cheaper to fly to Cluj, but further away from Brasov and the Ice hotel. When I stayed it was significantly cheaper than now, but its popularity has increased a lot!

Have you done this trip OP? Sounds amazing, i'd love to do it!!!

Quite expensive considering I paid less to fly to cluj stay all weekend in the centre in an apartment. Go to petrosani for a few days in the mountains. And then catch a train and stay in an apartment in the centre of Bucharest all weekend.

Must be crazy renting a car in the mountains in the snow. End up paying 1000 euro deposit with a high risk sliding of mountain

Staying in an ice hotel in Luton? Naw, already done that!

Wow, never spent that much on a holiday in my life!!


Should try taking kids to USA in summer break, flights alone from Manchester usually come in over 3k, you can quite easily be 7k by the time you are done. This one is cheap.

Never pre buy the park tickets,14 days of theme parks is a hell of an ordeal and huge upfront cost plus you don't save much. Only need a kid to catch too much sun etc and have a day away your losing money. Much prefer to arrive and then decide on the itinery depending on weather etc,2 days of parks then a few days local shopping or trips etc then some more parks One year we broke upthe fortnight up by driving down to Clearwater for a few days-you can only do that if you haven't invested £2500in tickets you got to use.

Thanks for letting us know - we'd been wondering!

Ironically, you're better off staying in the far north of the UK to see the lights. We have the advantage of better weather. Iceland is in an awful position mid Atlantic.

Personally I wouldn't visit there in November /December as the days are just to short to enjoy the absolutely stunning scenery.

Original Poster

I know this may not be helpful for this season, but we hired a motorhome with Airbnb. It doubled up as our transport and accommodation and was comfortable, had shower, toilet, heating, fridge, freezer, hob and all utensils which allowed us to cook meals. We also took around 2kg each of food into Iceland as we had hold luggage (there is a maximum limit). I think we paid around £2100 for two weeks (it was our wedding and honeymoon) but we saved such a lot by cooking our own meals and would have had to pay for a car in addition to accommodation otherwise.

We were able to do omelette for breakfast, along with the lovely Skyr yoghurt, pasta dishes and also bought meat we could freeze and some tinned fruit and veg from home as fresh fruit and veg is expensive. This may be helpful for anyone going in summer.

Much better down in the south around Makarska or Dubrovnik (King's Landing from GoT).
Be aware that you have to drive through Bosnia for about an hour or so if you want to visit Dubrovnik.

So you'll be driving through a EU to Non-EU border, and vice-versa, it's a hell of a drive from the north!
I actually, stupidly, forgot my passport when I made this journey and didn't have my driving license either, they gave me a telling off at the border, but they still let me through and back again (thank god).

You won't get much sunshine in the north of Tenerife in the winter.
Temperatures will therefore be lower. And it tends to be quite windy.
There's probably enough exploring to be done in Tenerife for a week. If you're ok to drive to the beach for the rest of your stay then this is good value.

The North is actually only a couple of degrees cooler but cloudier. Certainly much more than 14. More like 20 celcius.

I'm guessing here, but does Tenerife have higher Winter temperatures, than Glasgow in the Summer?

Puerta de la cruz, 14 degrees average in december.

Yes Airbnb is an option definitely. The accommodation in Stavanger does have kitchen facilities that are shared and the Bergen accommodation does also have cooking facilities in the room. I'm not sure exactly what these are but it should help reduce costs of eating out.

Worth bearing in mind that food and drink in Norway is very expensive. An Airbnb might be more expensive, but if it has a kitchen you can make savings by making your own breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Possibly not everyone's cup of tea, but just had a quick look on AirBnb and look to be some quite nice places for cheaper than listed above in Stavanger

Its amazing isn't it. I did it on a cruise but luckily (or unluckily depending on your viewpoint) we ended up in Norway for additional nights at the stops in Scotland and the Shetland Islands were cancelled due to bad weather, we did all DIY excursions in Norway and had some amazing good weather. I think you can visit Flam railway from Bergen too so that's well worth a trip. It was a few years now but we paid £299pp on a week cruise from Liverpool, a rare bargain find as I've never seen cruises to the Norwegian fjords this cheap since. Its a beautiful country.

norway in a nutshell, coach, trains and boat is well worth the trip from bergen.

1440 nok aprox £125-130

whilst in stavanger its definately worth getting over to prekestolen, but if the busses run then kjeragbolten is a quality walk and you get to stand on the boulder wedged into the cliff face 1000 metres above lysefjord..

on a good day you'll see base jumpers too

i love norway and need to go again

SLS isn't great location, even on strip. Nice hotel, but Casino is dead. West gate is old Hilton hotel and off strip, wouldn't bother staying there unless you dont want to be on strip.


Better looking at TI, Linq, Monte or NYNY for strip or Golden nugget or The D downtown

It is on the strip - used to be the Sahara -2535 S Las Vegas Blvd,

Yes, it's way at the top. Too far off the main part of the strip. You want to be between Encore and Mandalay Bay.

Cheers, updated and different hotel, now cheaper with correct screenshots. As you say lots of options dependent on budget.

Didn't do Verona at all really, as we ran out of time, so another day maybe.For what it's worth we stayed at Meublè AdrianaVicolo Strentelle 21, Sirmione, BS, 25019, Italy, 0203 027 9779 ( from £76 currently on Hotels.com) which is in the centre of Sirmione with a view landward to the Castle from the roof terrace. Basic , but puts you in easy walking of the many resturants in Sirmione. Sirmione is bottom centre of Lake Garda so the other places can be reached by the ferries from there too. I'd second getting the train into Venice too, so easy. We actually had a hire car via BA which gave us 'free' days' so we ended up parking it in a secured car park in Verona near to the station, so not so 'free' afterall. We booked the train via the Trenitalia web site, which was in English.As for Venice, come out of the station and to the right on the canal is a ferry booth, where you can get a ferry pass for x number of hours/days. This makes the ferry service so much easier and cheaper to do.We stayed at Hotel Al Codega (Double £145+) which i can recommend, it was ideally centred near to St Marks etc. A bit pricy for some maybe, but we won't be going back anyday soon i'm afraid :-(



why so expensive for hotels? it is only lake!

I am still unable to see flights for £1059 so I would say this deal is expired it's a shame it would have been a good deal otherwise, hope someone manage to get lucky, if you are still thinking about it it's probably too late.

This is incredibly good value, I've done most these places, spectacular place and really worth it! Personally I'd want a week in Queenstown though.
Edited by: "dcx_badass" 15th Aug

Seems like a good but how do you get flights for £1059 on traveltrolley ? I tried travel trolley and skyscanner 29th of Oct to 17th of Nov from Heathrow to Christchurch for 2 people and the best deal I can find is £1384.94 with Quantas, China Southern shows £1766, or have the prices dramatically changed already ?
