Top Tips for Saving Money on Your City Break

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 10, 2012) - An early summer city break sounds like a great idea. Even if you're planning two weeks away a little further down the line - or maybe you're off somewhere closer to home - escaping for a European city break for a long weekend at the beginning of summer sounds perfect.

Once you've decided on a weekend away, it's time to get planning and of course saving where you can. Here are the top tips for saving money on your city break brought to you by Antler.

  • Don't be too fussy - if you have a few places in mind, but are open to anything you're bound to find a great deal. Think Eastern Europe over favourites like Paris and Barcelona and savvy savings could be on their way.
  • Check your online options - from price comparison sites to voucher sites city break deals are everywhere online. Take your time, do your research and secure your perfect break.
  • Manage your expectations - do you need 5* luxury when only away for a few days? You'll be spending most of your time sightseeing or out for dinner and drinks. How about a charming B&B or guesthouse? You'll save money and you might just get more of an authentic experience.
  • Carry on - if you've found yourself a great deal, don't lose out by paying more to put your luggage in the hold, carry on is perfect if you're away for only a few days as you don't need too many outfit options.

Opting for hand luggage from Antler you'll find an innovative design ideal for all your hand luggage needs. Antler cabin bags are easy to manoeuvre through the airport on wheels, durable and ideal to fit in the overhead lockers. You'll also be straight through at the other end without the hassle of waiting for the carousel - it couldn't be simpler.
