With Christmas just around the corner and personal budgets feeling the pinch, you may feel like you can’t justify a last-minute trip or holiday. However, do not fear! Not only do Hostelling International hostels provide great value for money in numerous locations around the world, many of our hostels are offering exclusive discounts to HI customers.
The days are long gone when families were forced to leave their pet pooches at home when they organised their annual holiday.
According to a recent report by MedicAnimal.com, nine out of 10 Brits took their hounds on holiday with them in the UK and one in eight were actually packing the pet passport and travelling abroad with their four-legged friend to the continent.
‘16 Kids and Counting’ is one of the surprise TV hits of the spring. Following in the footsteps of families which buck the norm by having supersized broods, the Channel 4 programme has shown that an annual holiday can be difficult to organise and expensive.
For cash-strapped families looking for a ‘cracking’ Easter break that won’t ‘break’ the budget the youth hostelling charity, YHA (England and Wales) is urging people to consider a holiday in a Youth Hostel.
That’s it half term is done and now thoughts turn to what can we do with the kids over Easter?
Well now is the time to start planning.
There are literally hundreds of options available for those families who want to get back to basics and spend some quality time with each other if they opt for a hostel stay.
