Hotel breaks in the country

If you’re looking for a country retreat then you may not have as much choice of accommodation as you would if booking in the city. Often in the countryside, you will find a lot of B and B’s and guest houses. Hotels tend to be independent rather than the chain hotels you may find in the city.

Don’t be restricted by public transport

Picking a destination to visit can sometimes be restricted by the ease of getting there. For those who don’t drive, public transport can often be a problem. However, with a whole host of apps and services dedicated to planning travel for you, that dream destination may not be quite so difficult. If you have a budget, travelling by bus and train may make more sense than using taxis.
