Last Minute Holiday Ideas On A Budget

Have you got the summer blues because you didn’t plan a holiday this summer? Here are some wallet-friendly ideas to help you escape the every day and go somewhere fab!

Airbnb will be your new best friend. It’s probably not for you if you like being waited on when you’re away, but with friendly hosts and some gorgeous properties with little fees, it’s hard to not sing Airbnb’s praises.


  1. Cannes

This holiday is perfect for anyone who wants to kick back with your entire friendship group. Bubbly at nightly pool parties and breakfast in the sun could be the answer to your summer holiday envy. It might be worth renting a couple of cars if you can convince your driving pals so you pick up some food from a local food shop and save the cash! Extravagant on the outside and excellent for Instagram-worthy snaps. This Airbnb is a budget-friendly steal!

£286 each for seven nights

Flights from £68 for a return London to Nice


  1. Dubrovnik

Perhaps you’re feeling like somewhere a little quieter and more Mediterranean? Dubrovnik could be the perfect place to get away with your best friend or your partner. Stay in a cheap apartment with sea views and see this scenic city in the day. Maybe go on one of the Game of Thrones tours if you’re a fan! The perfect travel getaway for anyone in need of slowing down and just enjoying being an entirely different world.

£22 per night

Flights from £80 return throughout the summer months


Another way to get more out of your pennies is to opt for hostels. Don’t be put off by dorms instead of private rooms. It can be a fab opportunity to meet new people while you’re away!


  1. Skye

Maybe the thing that helps you unwind is good old fashioned exercise! Scotland could be just the place to escape to for a hiking trip. This gorgeous hostel has fabulous reviews and for only £17 a night with places still available in August, you could walk yourself relaxed.

City breaks more up your street? What about bustling Berlin? With flights being mega cheap in the summer months, you could be saying “Hallo Deutschland” in a jiffy.

Flights: From £15 each way from London to Berlin


  1. Reykjavik

Cheap deals to Reykjavik at the end of August mean you could pass the summer in nature’s Jacuzzi. With hot spring tours in Reykjavik starting from £205, you could have a blissful week away in Iceland.
