European breaks 'still offer good value'

Stag parties are notorious for their ability to bag bargain European flights and jet off for a weekend of overseas celebrations and there are still a number of cut-price deals around, it has been claimed.

Despite the continued weakness of the pound against the euro, online travel company Expedia.co.uk has revealed that close-to-home destinations still offer the best value for tourists.

Jonathan Cudworth, head of product marketing at the firm, said short breaks in European cities less than a three-hour flight away are available at low prices.

"With deals available for under £200 per person, these locations deliver all important short-haul budget breaks for Brits, despite the strong euro," he commented.

He added that savvy travellers can still find affordable hotels, activities and bars and restaurants "whatever their budget".

Expedia.co.uk also revealed this week that more people are taking trips to less-conventional European destinations such as Slovakia and Latvia as Brits are encouraged to venture outside the eurozone to beat the unfavourable exchange rates.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19130816-ADNFCR
