Hi guys

Hope I'm not forgotten already I Been doing sw for a few weeks then was knocked side ways when my partner decided he was moving out n kinda haven't been about!

I'm not sticking to plan but lost a bit of weight signed off work with stress etc so not all bad!

Anyway it's all very long and messy but me n my partner are still seeing each other but not living together. I am hoping for a weekend away this w. End with him

He has the recent freedom of a passport and wants to put it to use. We wanted to go Paris but eurostar is so expensive like over £300 for the two of us

What I'm asking for is ideas where we could go last minute just for the weekend outside the country on a tight budget this us another opportunity for me to try n win him back so c'mon people please help!

Prague is stunning. We got a cheap deal at the golden wheel hotel via expedia and it was stunning.

If you steer clear of the bars located around the central squares you can get some great deals on food and drink.

Its a Pound a pint in some bars :D

Just one of many ideas you will probably get.

Barcelona does it everytime for me.

Look on the internet for cheap flights and hotels. It isn't that cheap when you get here though.

A good place to look is www.lastminute.com

Eurostar is not so expensive if you can book ahead, but like most rail journeys it gets very pricey if you are arranging it last-minute.

I agree with fillymum - websites like lasminute.com are very good for spur of the moment holidays.

Tried those but it's coming in at over £400 that's too much for us!

Not sure where you live but can you not get a ferry somewhere, we are in newcastle and can get to amsterdam or calais to France etc by foot.

Cheap and cheerful.

Definitely Barcelona! Absolutely beautiful and you might find a good weekend break bargain.
Rome is also fantastic, however I felt is was more expensive there that in Barcelona.
I made some good grabs in the past on www.travelsupermarket.com
Alternatively, how about going on a short cruise to Belgium? P & O Ferries from Hull to Zeebrugge - Brugge and Gent are lovely.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I really don't think the 'cheap weekends abroad' really exist anymore - with taxes and fuel charges on all transport, the once cheap flights really do add up to be an expensive trip! I know you say OH wants to use his passport but there really are some beautiful parts of the UK to explore... xxx

Rome is a beautiful city to break up permanantly:(

If the relationship doesn't survive, you'll "Always have Rome"

We r making up permanently! Lol il check out eBay I quite literally want done cheap flights to France or Amsterdam or anywhere really n we could just book in somewhere when we r there but flights are coming at £300 for 2 of us so no go there.

I live in London by the way I thought of ferry by foot but don't know how that would be any cheaper as I need to get to the port :)

How about Ireland?

Flights are probably going to be the costliest part. Try skyscanner.com. You can enter the airport you want to fly from and the dates and see what locations come up the cheapest? Worth a shot.

Last minute isnt always the best route to take. What i would do is be flexible on dates if you can, jump on to Easyjet/flybe/ryanair websites and search on your destination and pick the cheapest outbound/inbound flight you can manage.

Or try skyscanner which can do a lot of the work for you.

Also worth thinking about hostels for your accomodation - most offer private doubles and they can be cheaper than hotels/B&Bs - plus you get kitchen space to prepare your own food for a couple of meals which can save you cash. Try www.hostelworld.com


But if last minute is your thing, try the high street travel agents, if you arent fussed about where you go you can pick up some real bargains.

Or you can try signing up to some discount sites - "travelzoo" are always sending me details of cheap deals. I'm going away this weekend to the New Forest - 2 nights B&B + evening meal on the first night + complimentary bottle of wine + chocs for £58.95 per person -saving about £70 each. That's not a last minute thing though, and sometimes the dates are restricted, but worth a look.

You can get that quite reasonably priced. That's if you want to drive of course.
The world (well, France for a weekend) is your oyster. I love it.

Not just France - if you don't mind driving Bruges is just an hour on the motorway from Calais/Bolougne. I highly recommend these apartments:
De Drie Koningen » Apartments

Bruges is lovely - you won't need a car one you're there. Lots of meandering streets, lovely places to eat, canals - very romantic. ;)

Thanks for the link we are looking to go to Bruges this year I haven't been since about 1976/77 and have been looking forward to going back for years.
