The Cheapest City Breaks in Europe

City Breaks are consistently one of the most popular holiday types among Brits, but some destinations are extremely expensive, and three days could end up costing as much as a one week Beach holiday! Now Simply Holiday Deals has created a handy infographic detailing the cheapest city breaks available in Europe.

According to the graphic, you can explore some amazing cities from as little as £30 a day, including accommodation, transportation, food, drink, entertainment and attractions. Of course, this all depends on how ‘budget’ you want your trip to be, but swapping a hostel for a hotel and fast food for an indulgent meal wouldn’t break the bank in these top destinations;

These costs may sound too good to be true, but there are always ways to save money, even in an expensive city. Avoid international fast food chains and instead opt to eat like a local – the food will be cheaper and probably tastier too. Book flights and accommodation either as far in advance as you can, or as last minute as you can handle, to pick up on discounts. Finally, don’t be afraid to haggle on things like shopping, accommodation and even food – they can only say no!

If you’re planning a city break, just remember to invest in quality travel insurance to protect yourself and your trip against a holiday disaster. Travel insurance can cover expensive costs such as medical bills and lost or stolen items. Visit for more information.
