I’ve heard a lot of people saying this year that the cost of holidaying in the usual European resorts has been really expensive – the price of food and drink is getting ridiculous and we aren’t really getting value for money anymore with the fluctuating currency markets.

You’ll be surprised at the options available that are right on your doorstep. Try this ebookers discount code for a great saving off the total cost of your trip. Continue Reading ›
