  #1  Long weekend cheap break.  Posted 10/01/2017 @ 10:41
Howdy Ukers.

I'm looking for a weekend break for me and the daughter.
Anyone any recommendations to do this cheaply (very).

Anywhere is good. I did a weekend with Mountain sun in Tignes 5 years ago but now the oldest daughter has finished her lessons at Castleford I'm looking for a bonding weekend.

Cheers B

If you're prepared to hire a car abroad, and potentially fly at awkward times, Easyjet holidays always have some silly prices on weekends away. Prices don't include bags or transfers, but there are some unbeatable deals on there. For example:

18 Feb 2017 (first day of half term) fly manchester to barcelona
Includes 4 Nights accommodation in a 4 star hotel in Andorra
£262 each.

For half term that's pretty good if you ask me

Anytime. I used to do package holidays, but once kids happened and I couldn't do a whole week at a time had to look elsewhere. The easyjet breaks are so cheap, and hiring a car opens up so many possibilities to you.

Not sure how old your daughter is but the spa/pool centre in escaldes is worth a visit. Andorra is tiny and if you have the car it's worth staying in Andorra la vella as easy to access the main resorts but it has quite a bit of life

Ive looked at all options and to be fair its cheaper going for a week

I appreciate your time but Im still kind of stuck. Andorra works out cheaper for the weekend but its still over £500 before extras.

Im sure I did tignes far cheaper than this.

Mountain sun in tignes is very cheap, but you might have left it late for flights to Geneva, etc.

Are you needing to go in half term? If not that makes things much cheaper.

Have you considered Poland? Fly to Krakow and get down to zakopane?

have you thought about giving Balkan Holiday a call?
Balkan sent me an email today about last minute deals. Bulgaria are their cheapest trips.

I usually book early with them, as nothing beats their £99 2 4 1 lift pass prices.
Nothing comes close for a cheap trip - especially when its 7 nights for the price of 5!
