Tourists travel from all over the world to visit the UK, so before you start berating your misfortune at having to holiday at home, open your eyes to what's on your doorstep first- and we don't just mean the famous capital!
Splashing out on a trip of a lifetime might be the perfect way to start married life, but many newlyweds are ending up in debt as the average cost of a honeymoon soars to over £3000. If you can't afford to jet off to the Maldives for a luxury fortnight on the beach, don't despair; here are 10 easy ways from Savoo to save money on your honeymoon costs.
Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge whipped up a media storm at the weekend when they jetted off for a second honeymoon in the Maldives, leaving baby George behind with the Nanny.
Wills and Kate are said to be staying in a 5* private resort, setting them back an estimated $10,000. Holidays to the Maldives really are the ultimate in luxury, with stunning white-sand beaches, private pools and THOSE beach huts which look right out onto the crystal clear sea.
Sadly, not all of us can afford to indulge our beach hut fantasy in the Indian Ocean, with even the very cheapest holidays to the Maldives starting at £1,500 per person. But that doesn't mean you have to give up on your dream yet- we've ferretted out 4 alternative destinations where you can enjoy your own personal hut in the sun at a fraction of the cost of the Maldives. Happy holidays!
And how to do it on a budget from a man that knows.
If you're young, single and working in a half-decent job, then it's your duty to see the world and all it has to offer. Well, that's the way I've looked at it over the last few years. As friends have been cast to one side – through marriage, fatherhood or even both – my single mates and I have made it our mission to adopt a budget GQ (some would say Loaded) approach to seeing the world. Forget the Balearics, Greece or mainland Spain; further afield there's more on offer at a fraction of the price.
