Are you Still Looking to Book a Holiday this Summer?

Posted in : Holidays, Travel on by : admin Comments:

The summer is quickly coming to an end and before we know it, children will be going back to school. If you haven’t yet booked a summer getaway, you need to think about getting it done soon – time is running out. There are much fewer last minute deals around these days, especially during the summer, so you might begin to struggle. You will most likely still be able to find some options, especially if people have cancelled their trips last minute. This can be a great way of finding some good deals that will offer you great value for money, and the excitement of not knowing where in the world you are going until the last minute. If you are struggling to find last minute deals, why not go somewhere in the UK, camp, or hire out a camper van? This can give you a sense of adventure, and it will be great for the kids.

Going on Holiday – the Best Times to Travel

Posted in : Holidays on by : John Comments:

If you want to go on holiday, there are destinations that can suit you throughout the year. Winter sun isn’t so hard to get with the availability of budget flights and reasonable accommodation, and good transport can help you reach destinations more quickly. Whenever you are travelling, there will always be some deals to be had. Here are some things to think about: If you can, travel outside of the school holidays. If this isn’t possible because you have children or work in a school, carry out price comparisons to find the right deal for you. There will still be lower cost options – you just need to find them. Spend some researching the weather in your destination. For example, Thailand is a great winter sun option, but if you go at the wrong time, you will be affected by monsoon season. Travel last minute. Book something at the last minute and be open to options!

All-Inclusive Holidays – Yes or No?

Posted in : Holidays on by : John Comments:

An all-inclusive holiday can be a far easier option for people going on holiday. They will include accommodation, food and often transportation as well. The accommodation might be the flights, the transfer to the accommodation upon arrival, or both. All-inclusive can be a good way to travel if you are looking for a relaxing break. You won’t have to think about anything once you arrive, as the basics will already be covered. If you want to do any other activities, you can simply book them in without having to question what you will do for food or transport. The trouble with all inclusive is the lack of freedom it might give you. If you have children, they may get bored staying in the hotel and using its facilities. However, if everything is paid for there, you may be reluctant to spend more money going out and about. A compromise could be to go half board.

Posted in : Holidays, Travel on by : John Comments:

With recent political events that divided half the country people are worrying too much about things that may never happen and the effect of their actions by not doing something or panic buying is only going to make things worse; perhaps it’s time for a nice holiday somewhere out the way. The question now is whether you travel abroad or find some place nice here that’s out the way of people, and just make the most of it. It’s probably best to have a holiday locally and give people peace of mind that everything is still ok at the same time. Where you go really depends on budget and the type of holiday you are looking for, such as a quite cottage by the sea or in the country, something for the weekend by the sea; or a yurt in the forest; you may even decide you want a family holiday over the weekend, which would be great because the weather has been so nice lately and not too hold either. So go on, take a local break and clear your mind for a few day’s or more.

Weekend Breaks For Those With Zero Hour Contracts

Posted in : Holidays, Travel on by : John Comments:

We all love holidays, and when we can we want to get away for a couple of weeks and just escape from the norm and forget about our daily woes; just kick back relax and be free for a short while. But with the rise of Zero-Hour contracts in hospitality and retail type roles, and constantly changing and rotating schedules it’s not always going to be easy to get time off. If you have worked in retail, or a hotel for more than a few years then it might be possible to get other members of staff to cover for you during your time away, for upto a week or two. But if it’s less than that, your more likely to be refused any holiday’s and you probably did not read your contract, as it may state that you are limited to the number of day’s you can take off. If this is the case then you will only get about 3 days off at a push and will almost certainly have to agree to cover somebody else’s shift if they have to cover yours whilst you are away. Don’t be discouraged if you are stuck in one of those awful…
