    Just booked a holiday with my other half to Turkey in June, for a week.
    It was £391 at a 4* hotel, all inclusive. That was through Thomas Cook.

    Not exactly summer but close enough.

    350 is a small budget but me and some friends once drove to south of france and stopped in a hotel for two weeks for under £200 each, try that, if you can;t drive get the train.

    That's a pretty decent budget! Whereabouts do you want to go? Some where quiet or somewhere lively? Do you want to go somewhere far away (longer flights) or not? xx

    stuff we'd like:

    sit on a beach
    preferably have a pool in the hotel
    be able to go out drinking
    be able to eat (quite fussy so dont want the food to be too obscure)
    not too bothered about the flight
    we've looked at spain and turkey so far...just somewhere with nice people and warmth

    thanks again peeps

    Check out Travelrepublic.co.uk - you can book flights and accommodation separately if you need to.

    Sidari in Corfu is cheap and hot. I stayed in 2star accommodation and was expecting it to be awful, it was fine. Basic but clean and cheap!

    Sorry if this post is a bit random in here but me and a group of 10 friends were planning on going to Haven for a long weekend 'holiday' type of thing, but our booking got cancelled as two of us are 17. We all put in £25 each to hire out 2 basic caravans...does anybody have any possible suggestions for what we could do instead? In the south east region? Thanks

    Privately rent a caravan instead? Or go camping?

    This. The Greek people are fantastic, as is the weather . Im a really fussy eater too but ive never had any issues there, a lot of there dishes are very simple - not to mention that if you go to a bigger resort you will find british bars etc everywhere!

    www.lowcostholidays.com has some good deals about too, when I looked for me and my bf we had a much smaller budget than yours, £300 each should be plenty.

    Personally though I usually book my flights and hotel seperately and it comes up a lot cheaper. For hotels try Monarch, www.otbeach.com, lowcostbeds.

    Me and my boyfriend are planning to book a week off and just go anywhere in that week. Obviously this could be a bit risky, but its the best way to get a really cheap deal over summer. Would this be an option? Or would you like to know where you're going beforehand?
