    cheap midweek break

    Looking for a cheap midweek break abroad from the 25th august (cannot leave before this date) to 29th, but must be back before sat.

    Flying from Luton if possible and for 2 adults.

    Been looking but cannot find anything reasonably cheap, both on very very tight budget.

    Can anyone tell me where to look for holiday deals, especially ones that are leaving on the day or next couple of days?

    Problem is that its one of the most busiest and expensive weeks of the year.
    you can get flights Luton to malaga/ibiza/majorca for around £170-£200 each for the Mon-Fri, but any decent 3/4* hotel will be £300+ for a couple for 5 nights.
    You may well save if you get lucky with cheap flights
    Id budget at £350 per person for 5 nights in a good 3/4*, but this is without: transfers, food, drink and obviously spending money on entertainment etc.

    Wow, that's a lot more than I thought. Unfortunately that is the only time we both can get annual leave as we both work in education.

    I'd get on the package websites and travel republic but as someone else said this week isnt cheap, people hurrying to get a holiday and get their kids back to school means everywhere puts the prices up as they know people will pay.

    you can go to websites that do package deals for late departures or local travel agents. travel agents usually have deals departing in the next couple of days after booking
