Nemo1977 Sun 03-Apr-05 21:30:13

can anyone help? My lovely pil have given us £750 as they say we need a holiday and want us to go away for when our baby would have been due. So would like something for in june for 2 adults and a 18mth old. Dont mind going abroad etc but we literally only have the £750 and maybe could raise a couple of hundred for spends ourselves. Just looked at centre parcs and in their budget accomodation a week is £724 so i throw this to the lovely MN ers to try and help us

We took dd to Sardinia for a week in June when she was about 15 mo. We went to Cannigione with just sardinia, it cost about £750 and was lovely - beautiful villa, beatiful resort. Incredibly narrow, sandy beached sheltered by trees so you could sit on the beach and be in the shade all at the same time! Average June temp 25 degrees. It was perfect. We're off to Puerto Pollensa in Majorca this June, booked accomodation through and flights with airmiles, hope it's as good

What cheap flights are around at the moment? Look on sites like Ryan Air and Easy Jet. Find a flight and then do some searches for accomodation. We have done Brussels and Bruges that way; also Northern France.

I would probably got the Dorset (Durdle Door) or the Isle of Wight and stay in a static caravan, and use the left over money for meals and activities etc. A week in June will cost no more than £350 so you could have a really lovely time without worrying how muc everything would cost.

Either that, or I would book a last minute deal, there are some real bargains here:

Brittany ferries do some good deals, gite and ferry crossing. Ive had some fantastic hols in france with dd and because its self catering it doesnt have to cost the earth.

how bout teletext? can get some good bargains on there

Nemo1977 Sun 03-Apr-05 22:51:21

thanks all am looking into all your suggestions

get a cheap package somewhere like Majorca or Malta? might be worth checking out airtours website. Or look on Ryanair/Easyjet sites - they do cheap flights to Barcelona, Girona and some places in Italy.

unless you go in for loads of self-catering I think that somewhere like Majorca will probably not work out more expensive than a UK holiday (I find eating out in UK is really expensive)

Just did a very quick search on easy Jet to get an idea:

Easy Jet from Liverpool to Alicante, 2 adults and 1 infant, Mon 13-20 Jun, = £152 (inc. taxes)

Various Easy Jet hotels/apartments ranging from £190 to £350 for 7 nights. Many near beach.

Need to add on travel insurnace - try Direct Insurance as very cheap

And transfers to and from the airport to accommodation...but airports that serve easyjet/ryan air normally have buses which are very reasonable to do this - or grab a taxi.#

1 week's car hire (through easy jet) with a toddler car seat, for this period is £128

Nemo1977 Mon 04-Apr-05 09:01:11
