Cheapest holiday destinations in Europe

While Eastern Europe is often one of the cheapest places to go on holiday, there are plenty of other places to add to your itinerary. Want sunshine or snow? Culture or dramatic views? Take your pick of the following affordable European gems.

1. Galicia, Spain

A white sand beach with boats and people is seen at the base of a lush, forested hill.

Okay, I know Spain doesn’t seem like much of a secret budget holiday destination these days. However, turn your gaze towards the north-western coast where the autonomous region of Galicia has largely escaped the attention of the British holidaymakers. And flights cost as little as £30.

With a cliff-hewn coast recalling the majesty of the Norwegian fjords, weather reminiscent of an Italian spring and coffee/beer prices so low you’ll think it’s the 90’s, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Sounds fishy? You bet – Galicia is known for its seafood, caught and delivered straight from net to table.

In terms of somewhere to stay, have a look at hotels in Vigo, a romantic old provincial capital on a hillside that’ll remind you of San Francisco. Its harbour district is charming and well-stocked with cafés and bars.

  • Best time to visit: April to October for clear, sunny days
  • Price of a beer (domestic): £2.15
  • Price of a cappuccino: £1.30
  • Price of a meal at an inexpensive restaurant: £8.60
  • Free activities: Hiking along the Camino de Santiago, lazy days on As Catedrais Beach, the Cathedral de Santiago de Compostela and Muralla Romana de Lugo.

2. Golden Sands, Bulgaria

A beach with artificial breakwaters and a cluster of buildings perched on forested hills.

If you’re looking for a cheap beach holiday, you can’t go wrong with Bulgaria‘s Black Sea resort of Golden Sands. Reminiscent of Croatia with its terracotta-tiled rooftops and sandy beaches, Golden Sands proudly holds a Blue Flag resort badge for its clean beaches.

Beautiful yachts bob in the marina and there is a cool and eclectic vibe at the beachside clubs. Generally, a beer or a coffee will set you back under £2, while a large bottle of water is about 75p. Hotels are also cheap and start from as low as £20 a night. There are often drink deals available at most bars too. If you’re after a larger party scene, head to Sunny Beach which is similar price-wise.

  • Best time to visit: June to September
  • Price of a beer (domestic): £1.75
  • Price of a cappuccino: £1.50
  • Price of a meal at an inexpensive restaurant: £6.60

Mallorca can sometimes feel like Europe’s biggest amusement park for grown-ups. Even if you’re travelling on a budget, you don’t need to feel like you’re missing out here.

How about this for a day out? Take a morning climb up the craggy rocks of Sa Gubia, then cool off on the beach at Cala Mayor before grabbing a bite and a pint at the Bar Joan Frau in Palma. In the afternoon, venture to the east coast for some snorkelling at Cala Santenyí, before rounding off the day in Palma’s lively Santa Catalina district.

If you’re looking for a cheap, hot holiday, this is it.

4. Sarandë, Albania

Saranda's city port at ionian sea. Albania.

Located along Albania‘s Riviera, Sarandë is emerging as a vibrant new tourist destination for those on a show-string budget. Formerly a quiet fishing village, Sarandë is growing in popularity due to its stunning climate with no less than 300 sunny days per year. The beaches are pristine and you can eat freshly caught fish for just a few Euro.

Its location near Corfu means you’ll find Greek influences everywhere, you can do a day trip there too if you want. Just south of the town, you’ll find Ksamil Beach. Nicknamed ‘the Ionian Pearl’, it’s home to the most crystal clear waters around. Nearby Mirror Beach is lovely, too. You won’t be short of stunning sunbathing spots!

Arguably the cheapest country in Europe, North Macedonia is emerging as a popular tourist destination. If you like exploring and being active then Skopje, the capital city, is a great option.

There are archaeological sites, fortresses, historical monuments, and caves to walk around. Hike to the Mountain of Vodno for the best view of the city! Also, take time to walk across the Stone Bridge to Macedonia Square and hang out.

It’s also well worth the short 15 kilometre journey to stunning Matka Lake for a leisurely walk (or you can take a boat trip if your cash stretches far enough). In the Matka Canyon, you’ll find medieval monasteries and exciting caves to explore.

If you’re a fan of Croatia, then Montenegro should be next on your go-to list. These two countries are very similar, apart from the prices which are far lower in Montenegro. Flights to Tivat, three miles from Kotor, are available direct from the UK. Or you can fly into Podgorica (an hour and a half away) for slightly less money.

The picturesque coastal town of Kotor is the most beautiful town in Montenegro with a real fairy-tale charm about it. The Medieval Old Town is a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site; explore narrow winding streets high in the hills or stroll around the beautiful Bay of Kotor.

A river's glassy waters mirroring the high mountains looming over it.

A fan of the great outdoors and looking for an active holiday? Consider the High Tatras region which is very affordable and jam-packed with amazing hiking and climbing opportunities.

Located nearly entirely within the borders of Slovakia, it’s the smallest alpine mountain range in the world – but with 30 stunning peaks. Tall mountains, low prices: in the High Tatras, alpine views are ten a penny. It’s no cakewalk out here mind you; you’ll encounter steep climbing walls up to 900 metres high, as well as hundreds of miles of winding trails bursting with wildlife. You might even spot a bear if you’re lucky.

  • Best time to visit: June to September for beautiful hiking opportunities, December to April for skiing

8. Warsaw, Poland

Poland’s capital is considerably cheaper to fly to than Europe’s other capital cities, with flights from £25. Often overlooked in favour of Krakow, Warsaw is ideal if you’re looking for an edgier experience.

With its cobbled streets and historical architecture and monuments, the old town looks like something out of a fairytale. In contrast, the Praga district looks like it’s still stuck in the 1940s with bullet holes in the walls and dark, winding alleys. Another contrast is the very modern business district, with a cool, cosmopolitan vibe.

One must do in Warsaw? Sample the famous Polish dumplings, locally called pierogi (which are pretty cheap and infinitely delicious).

  • When to visit: Between June and August
  • Price of a beer (domestic): £3
  • Price of a cappuccino: £2.70
  • Price of a meal at an inexpensive restaurant: £7.90
  • Free activities: Visit the Warsaw Rising Museum or walk the Royal Route from Warsaw’s Old Town to the Baroque mansion of Wilanow. Check out the 15th-century Royal Castle, the King Zygmunt III Waza Column, and the Presidential Palace.

9. Vienna, Austria

Two women looking around the area as they walk along the sidewalk.

With flights from just £24 Vienna is one of the cheapest places to fly to in Europe and one of the region’s most beautiful cities. It’s a gorgeous place to walk around, so it’s no wonder that it’s previous residents included classical music pioneers Mozart and Beethoven.

As well as baroque and medieval architecture, you’ll find stunning outdoor spaces. Don’t miss the sprawling gardens at Belvedere Palace Gardens which are free to visit.

A city rich in culture and live music opportunities, you can visit most of Vienna’s museums for free or see a show for a small fee. Take a walk along the Danube and enjoy a coffee and a buttery pastry in one of the citiy’s famous coffee shops. If you fancy burning off the pastry, rent a public bike (the first hour is free).

There are two very different vibes to the city, from the calming quintessential summer atmosphere to the busy festive season. Both are brilliant times to visit, with options to suit every budget.

  • Price of a beer (domestic): £3.90
  • Price of a cappuccino: £3.15

If you’re looking for a city break with lots of things to do at a budget price, Berlin is the place to go. Start your day with window shopping at the boutiques and vintage stores on Torstrasse in Mitte, then use your pocket change for a cheap lunch in Friedrichshain, Neukölln, or Kreuzberg.

Later on, visit one of the city’s many famed techno clubs. Top picks include Club der Visionaere, Zur Wilde Renate, Klunkerkranich or Katerblau.

In Berlin, anything is possible, and it’s often free as well. A walk along the well-marked Berlin Wall path won’t cost you a thing. Berlin has more bridges than Venice so it’s an interesting place to wander around. What’s more, eating out is much more affordable than in other European cities such as Amsterdam or Rome.

11. Riga, Latvia

A vibrant market square with flower stands and vividly coloured buildings.

Latvia used to be associated with grey, gloomy, post-Soviet decay, but in recent years, its capital Riga has become recognised as the beautiful and classy city it’s always been at heart.

In fact, the city has the finest and largest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world, with over 800 stunning houses. Stroll through the old town to admire the details of its art nouveau facades.

When you get hungry, visit the Central Market. It’s a UNESCO heritage site built inside a complex of former WWI-era zeppelin hangars, where you can sample some local Baltic food. Afterwards, take a walk along the Riga canal which divides the Old Town and the rest of the city.

A popular destination for stag parties due to its lively and cheap nightlife, Prague has managed to keep its prices low. Brilliant news for anyone looking for a budget break just a few hours from the UK. Flights cost from as little as £23 and prices in Prague are up to 50% cheaper than in the UK.

13. Budapest, Hungary

Two female friends talk while sitting on a pillared balcony's ledge.

Commonly referred to as the ‘Spa Capital of the World’, Budapest is the only remaining capital that is rich in naturally warm thermal waters. Relax after a day of sightseeing or a night of partying – or both – at one of the whopping 118 springs in the city, which are generally inexpensive.

There is a subterranean world of caves under the streets to check out, too. The ones under Buda Castle – a World Heritage Site – are a real adventure. Up above, you can admire the huge Hungarian Parliament Building on the banks of the Danube River, the imposing Great Synagogue, St Stephen’s Basilica, and Fisherman’s Bastion.

You should also make time to visit Margaret Island: a picturesque tranquil, green oasis in the middle of the Danube, with its very own Japanese garden which is free to visit. Also, don’t forget to try the national dish of Hungary – goulash.

14. Le Touquet, France


Be in charge of your own destiny by packing up your car and driving to Northern France. If you book the Eurotunnel in advance – and don’t mind travelling early morning or later in the evening – you can pick up a great deal. Drive an electric vehicle and you don’t even need to worry about fuel prices.

You can grab accommodation fairly cheaply in this seaside town which is often referred to as Le Touquet Paris-Plage. Parisiennes flock here on the weekends during the milder months because it’s a great place to switch off and relax.

It’s home to the largest beach in Europe, with seven kilometres of white sand. Le Touquet is also a great place to go walking in the extensive forests that surround the town. There is a great equestrian and tennis scene if that’s of interest to you, plus kids will love the play parks on the beach.

15. Hurghada, Egypt

Tourists ride on quad bikes, traversing through a vast desert landscape.

When you say Egypt, people automatically think of pyramids, the Sphinx and the Valley of the Kings. What you might not know is that the land of the Pharaohs is also home to some of the most colourful diving sites on Earth – with the beach town of Hurghada, on the Red Sea, chief among them.

As well as marine life, you can see Hurghada’s legendary wreck graveyard of Sha’ab Abu Nuhas. Red Sea diving packages start at 20€ per dive (packages for five days/ten dives). A boat ride away is The Ras Mohammed National Park (there is a small entrance fee) which is considered one of the most spectacular places to view coral reef in the world.

Red Sea diving is a magical experience. A kaleidoscopic array of marine life awaits you just beneath the surface. Temperatures stay balmy even during winter months, so there’s never been a better time to seize your chance.

16. Turunç, Turkey

Turunc is popular tourist destination in the Turkey.

While the beaches of the Turkish Riviera can be a little rocky, the sea makes up for it – and then some. If, however, you’d prefer to avoid the swarming masses of Turkey‘s tourist centres, there are plenty of other options worth pursuing. For those after something a bit more romantic that still offers options on the party front, a village like Turunç is a good bet.

Located near, but not too near, the nightlife mecca of Marmaris, Turunç is the perfect place to find a quiet place on the beach. When you’re ready for a bit more action, hop aboard a taxi-boat and in just 30 minutes, you’ll be at the club busting shapes on the floor.

Long-haul cheap holiday destinations

Is 2024 the year you venture a little further afield? You’re in luck as there are heaps of places in Asia, the Caribbean and beyond that won’t break the bank. This includes some seriously stunning all-inclusive resorts where you can soak up the sun in style (and on the cheap).

17. Dominican Republic, The Caribbean

A crowded white sand beach with a cluster of sunbeds along a grove of palm trees beside the crystal-clear turquoise waters.

Take a moment to imagine yourself walking barefoot through powdery white sand. You dip your toes into turquoise blue water and relax in the shade of the tropical palms…

Yes, the Caribbean CAN be an option for a cheap place to travel. Airfare aside, which starts about £300, you can get by on relatively little when you arrive. The Dominican Republic is known mainly as an all-inclusive holiday package destination and there are often some great off-season deals. However, if you’re willing to plan your trip individually, you can save even more money and make your island dreams come true.

  • Best time to visit: From November to April when temperatures and humidity levels are good
  • Price of a beer (domestic): £4
  • Price of a cappuccino: £2
  • Price of a meal at an inexpensive restaurant: £8.50

When planning to visit a faraway destination like India, your flight is always the biggest expense. But the good thing is, once you arrive, you can survive on next to nothing. This means, if time constraints aren’t a factor, it pays to stay!

On the Kerala coast, in northern India, you can eat like a sultan, travel first class on the railways and spend your nights in comfortable hotels, all for very little money.

Often considered one of the ten paradises of the world, I highly recommend staying on a houseboat to soak up the real atmosphere of Kerala. Cruising through the narrow lush green canals from Aleppy, Kochi or Kovalam is a real experience. There are also lots of beaches to explore as well as tea plantations at Munnar and Wayanad.

  • Best time to visit: October to February when the weather is cooler
  • Price of a beer (domestic): £1.40
  • Price of a cappuccino: 85p
  • Price of a meal at an inexpensive restaurant: £2

While many of them can get pricey during peak season (or exceptionally busy with party-goers), some are worth having on your radar. This includes Puerto Vallarta on Mexico’s Pacific Coast.

The small yet friendly city offers a range of stunning golden sand beaches, plenty of hiking trails and countless dining options. It’s a wonderful place to relax – and you’ll usually find some brilliant all-inclusive hotel deals. Additionally, there are plenty of street markets to sample cheap and delicious Mexican cuisine.
