Let’s face it, everybody loves a good holiday! But when time and money is tight, many of us only get to enjoy a break once a year. Since working at Superbreak, I’ve learnt to love the beauty of short breaks, and I’ve learnt to love a bargain even more! I’ve realised that getting away for a long weekend doesn’t have to cost the earth and that the best way to find yourself a cheap short break is to hunt out deals that give you a little bit extra!

The more that’s included in the price, the less you have to worry about shelling out for on the trip. Whether its inclusive attraction tickets, fancy afternoon teas or simply a delicious evening meal, the little extras add up to make a trip extra special. So I’ve scoured the best offers at Superbreak this week to help you get more for your money!
