Are you struggling to find a summer holiday abroad with your family, without breaking the bank? Everyone knows that the travel industry in the UK creates artificially high prices during school holidays – the economic principle of ‘supply and demand’ means that they can charge pretty much whatever they want and know that people will still pay. Yet help is at hand for parents searching for a summer holiday on a budget, and it starts at the bus station. Here’s something perfect for parents searching for a summer holiday for the family. This guest post is helpful for budget trip for the whole family at United Kingdom.
Now, don’t think there’s a trick here, because there really isn’t. This isn’t one of those deals where you can travel out for less than £30 but will have to pay £300 to get back home. There are also no hidden extras like taxes or fees. You can get back just as cheaply and there are plenty of seats available at these prices on numerous dates throughout summer, so you should be able to pick a time and date that suit you. You’re not as limited with your baggage as you would be on a plane because you are allowed one piece of luggage per person (the weight isn’t specified) plus a piece of hand luggage. And your journey begins at Victoria bus station, which is in central London very close to the Victoria tube stop.

The journey by bus takes longer than by train or plane (though not by as much as you would think, once you have factored in early arrival and check in times and procedures) so be sure to pack enough snacks and entertainment for the children for the journey. Alternatively book an overnight trip so that the children can sleep (the seats give you plenty of room to spread out).
