Best Value Worldwide Holiday Destinations in 2015

2015 is here and many of us our already planning our holidays for the year. However, budgets can be tight so it is important to think about value when it comes to choosing where you want to go for your travels. You can save even more money by avoiding expensive hotels and instead booking a self-catered cottage/apartment in the country you want to visit. Not only does it save you money, but it also allows you and all your guests to stay in the same place so that you can spend more time together on your holiday.

Here is a list of our Top 4 Best Value Worldwide Holiday Destinations for the year 2015:


1. Turkey

A holiday on the Mediterranean may sound pricy but if you avoid the expensive areas such as those in France, Italy or Spain and choose a self-catered villa in Turkey, you can enjoy the same wonderful weather and luscious beaches while saving yourself some pennies. If lounging on the beach is not your idea of a holiday, then you can also enjoy the historical ruins of ancient civilisations in this enchanting country. You can of course save even more money by going out and buying your own food and drink to cook in your self-catered accommodation but rest assured that restaurant prices are also generally cheap if you fancy treating your family and friends to a meal out. Turkey is a fantastic destination for a value holiday in 2015.


2. Bulgaria

Bulgaria is one of the best places to go if you are looking for some value holiday sun during the summer months. Head to the country’s Black Sea in July to get temperatures as high as 30°C and look forward to sunning yourself on beaches such as the well-known Sunny Beach seaside resort located 35km north of the city of Burgas. Stay in self-catered accommodation in the area but be sure to visit the main strip in the evening and enjoy the numerous bars, restaurants and nightclubs there that offer visitors a fantastic night out for a low price. Younger travellers are sure to love the two waterparks that can be found not too far from the resort while older travellers may want to see more of the country and visit the historically significant parts of the country.


3. Vietnam

This fascinating country has a lot to offer all different types of travellers, if you are looking to venture somewhere a bit further away from home. History fanatics will of course want to see first hand what the Vietnam War did to the country while those looking for a beach holiday can holiday in sub-tropical conditions in the south of Vietnam, which enjoys its best weather between the months of October and April. If you choose to stay in self-catered accommodation near the south coast of the country, you can therefore easily get to Phu Quoc Island by boat or you can also fly there if you stay closer to Saigon. The island has some fantastic beaches and great snorkeling opportunities and is the place to go if you are looking for a magical escape in Vietnam. The food is cheap and the food even more so, so what are you waiting for? No matter what you are after, you are sure to find something that suits you if you take your family and friends on a holiday to Vietnam.

4. Hungary

Hungary as a country has a lot to offer those looking for a value holiday but its capital of Budapest is an especially great place to visit. Considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Budapest is a city where you can get by with even the leanest of budgets while also getting the most out of your stay there. Have a look at our selection of self-catered country cottages in Hungary, including one that is only an hour away from the capital, and be sure to visit the city’s medieval castles, enjoy the bustling nightlife and get yourself down to Budapest’s beaches, outdoor pools and baths if you are holidaying in the summer. There really is no better way of taking advantage of the scorching temperatures.
