Default Holiday Late March/ Early April

Hi I have been browsing about myself on various websites such as teletext holidays and onthebeach but I was wondering if any of you guys had a good website you use to find bargain last minute holidays or if you spotted a cheap holiday on the dates I can go. I am able to holiday between March 24th-April 16th 2012.

I am looking for an all inclusive holiday and somewhere that is going to be hot. Am not looking for Egypt hot just better temperature than UK. I looked at spain and some cheap deals there but it seems to be raining in late March for a couple of days in most places which isn't good. As long as its above 3 star and the food is nice than am happy. Also a nice view would be ideal (i've seen some hotels which are facing another crumbling hotel and that's my ideal of hell). It has to be close to a beach, wouldn't mind if there was a free bus running to a nearby beach and also close to a town.

I am open to anywhere as long as the place isn't dangerous or a totally wreck. I know some places in the likes of Bulgaria and so on are gorgeous and very cheap etc so I am defo open to the likes of these. Not interested in Greece or Malta though as i've been to Greece before last year and wasn't very keen especially being delayed for 2 days due to airstrike.

Anyway my max budget is 160 for 7 days all inclusive that's flights and hotel. I can bargain down the package and get suitcases and stuff thrown in for cheaper so that's no problem (I read the guide to getting cheaper holidays here and worked a wonder last time)

Also its just 2 adults travelling and young couple if thats any help.

So, March or April. Hot but not Egypt. No rain, pretty scenery and a decent beach. Must be a nice all inclusive.

And you are prepared to pay a maximum of 11 per person per day?

Good luck with finding something.

being entirely honest, i spent ages looking for somewhere, with a budget of 250pp for the week after easter.


really struggled to find somewhere nice for that price, i was looking at marrkech but then ended up going to albufaira. costing around 200pp

the only place your going to get for that sort of budget is probabally benidorm/spain area

and thats a bit of a push

Is it a flight your after? Soemtimes it's cheaper to travel as a foot passenger by ferry. There are always great deals online!

We travel to France Loire and stay in a lovely hotel. It's beautiful scenery but probably not the kind of holiday you are planning if you want adventure!!

Hope this helps!
