With foreign travel back on the cards for most of us, you might be tempted to make a last-minute getaway to soak up some sunshine before winter.
Before rushing into anything, however, it’s better to plan your trip carefully. You’ll want to make sure you get the best deal for your needs and have a sufficient budget for the duration of your stay.
Location, location, location
You might want to pick the first location that comes to mind, but it’s wise to shop around since prices have decreased in the wake of the peak season.
Consider who you’ll be travelling with and take their needs into account. If you’re setting off with young children, family-friendly activities are a must. If you’ll be staying on your own or with friends, researching the selection of bars and restaurants will be crucial.
Think about what you’d like to get out of your holiday: are you dreaming of luscious green, rolling hills, or could you see yourself sitting back and admiring a cityscape view?
Enjoy nature on holiday
You’ll be spoilt for choice if you opt for an area of natural beauty in the UK. If you’ve been dreaming of pristine lakes and mountainous scenery, why not consider the Lake District? Nestled among the stunning landscape you’ll find charming rural towns like Keswick with big personalities.
If you’re further south, the rugged Cornish coastline is ideal for surfing, hiking and anyone looking for an action-packed holiday in a breath-taking setting.
Save money on urban breaks
Those with a city break in mind could be blown away by the enormous range of attractions and activities on offer in the lively atmosphere of a bustling metropolis.
The capital city might be famous for the London Eye and Big Ben, but you might also be surprised to discover the free attractions in London. You’ll be able to have a great time and experience the culture without worrying about the cost of your holiday spiralling.
Make an itinerary
Once you’ve chosen a location, creating a detailed itinerary for you and your group to follow could save you money, time, and unwanted stress. Add restaurants, museums, landmarks and other attractions to your list so there’s something for everyone.
Once you’ve decided where to stay, where to eat and what to do, all that’s left to do is to set off and make the most incredible memories on your autumn getaway.
