With the British spring sunshine hardly managing to raise a daffodil, and the promise of a good old British Summer about as reliable as Del Boy’s Reliant Robin, you’d probably be right in thinking that a weekend break would be the perfect way to relax away those work worries and recharge your battery – and let’s face it we all need a break from normality now and again – but you’re scared of spending money you haven’t got.

You’ve nipped into the local travel agent and perused the brochures, even took one or two home to have a closer look, and then tortured yourself daily by flicking through them as Eastenders, Emmerdale and Coronation Street depress you into thinking there must be more to life.

If that’s the case, the first thing to do is to try and find some cheap deals; so have you checked out all those online companies that kindly send you daily discounted deals straight to your inbox? Many of these deals focus on breaks in quality hotels that serve fine cuisine or offer spa weekends that will massage every bit of tension out of your tired body.

The second thing to consider when trying to save money is don’t be too fussy on location or on the dates that you’re willing to go – this means you can take advantage of the very best deals that come along.

Of course, like many of us, those types of deal tend to come along when you’re feeling a bit strapped for cash, maybe because you’ve just had to pay out for an unexpected repair or it’s a few days before pay-day. But, if that’s the case, all is not lost. You can always consider a short-term loan from www.cashwindow.co.uk. Our loans are simple to apply for and we offer competitive rates – so there’s really no reason to miss out on that perfect break.
