Chids I know you've booked a cheap break to Turkey and wanted to pick your brains if you are around.
Or others who are doing a cheap break abroad.....

Just being nosey but what you after? Are you looking for a summer holiday? I thought you were going to go to Mexico?

We're not going further than Dorset this summer which doesn't count as abroad! Chids is going to Turkey and I'm fairly sure that she posted a link to the place they're going to a while back.

H wants to go Mexico SW but we've not booked it yet. It's gone up in price cos I stupidly held off but TBH it's £5k for a holiday vs doing stuff to the house which need doing (decking, rendering a wall, decorating, new cooker etc) so I'm thinking if we can do both if we do a cheap week in the sun. H isn't convinced though.

what did you want to know belle? im not going abroad this year but have done cheap hols in the past?

If I'm remembering correctly Chids is going off season as she is not yet tied to the school holidays. So whether the cheap deal she got would work for you I don't know. She was due to have an operation wasn't she? Or has she just found something better to do with her time?!
Ryanair had a sale on their flights last week don't know if that is still on. (My colleagues were busy booking cheap flights last week).

Just want some recs on cheap places to go really - her apartments were something silly like a tenner a night. I'm guessing because we need to go in the holidays it will be extortionate anyway

We were literally at booking point, card ready in hand. Then decided jobs on the house it is. We really should do our windows but we may do our garden first as a compromise so we still get some sun benefits....hopefully. I found
When trawling holidays that loveholidays was reasonably priced and an easy site to use, h was finding some even better deals on tellytext holidays!

QS I've been looking at the cheap sites and my skin is crawling and nose turning up at the state of some of them. Where were you looking at?

Belle, we went to Solaqua apartments in albufeira. Clean spacious apartments, not much in the way of entertainment, decent big pool and a small kids pool. Halfway between old town and the strip, near a big supermarket. All inclusive doesn't get good review but we went self catering. Tourist train and taxis from the tip of the street. Its not fancy but if you just want something well equipped and clean it was fine x

Thanks Weekender will look it up. I'm waiting to hear back from mate on his villa see if he has any dates left for us

I literally searched most countries, I put the star rating to 3+ and the trip advisor to 4-5, (I'm a major holiday snob I'd prefer to stay at home than go to most). I think Tunisia looked good quality for the prices. H insists on all inclusive but if you know someone w
Ith an apparent or even better a villa then I'd jump at that if I were you!

We go every year QS but flights are through the roof this summer. Was coming in at 3k for two weeks so we started looking further afield. I just don't know what to do. Would either nothing than a shite hole but I love my holidays!

We had to compromise and do a week instead of 2 because of the extortionate prices. We are paying 2k for the 4 of us for a week AI in Palma nova.

Weirdly I post a reply last night but it isn't showing (I used to be Mrs MM and Red Velvet but can't access either from work !!)
We have got a great deal. We have booked 10 nights 20 July, 2 adults & 2 children in Portugal at a 4 star, 2 bed superior apartment, self catering for £2000. I was looking at flights to Spain and couldn't get over how expensive they were. We also looked a Majorca and found another apartment, self catering for about the same in a resort called Sea Club. The website I used was onthebeach, change the filters to 4 star, it does take a bit of effort trawling through, then looking at trip advisor etc..
