This February: How to see the worlds Top Destinations on a Budget

Top Travel Destinations this February – Ultimate Budget Travel Guide

Whether you want a quick weekend break, or a romantic getaway for valentines – February is one of the best months for travel!

Why? It’s so cheap… and the least busy period to travel!!

It’s considered an ‘Off-Peak’ time to travel meaning the locations are generally far less busy, and you can go at a much cheaper price. So if you are able to travel during this month, certainly take advantage of it. There’s no need to book months in advance.

Here’s my top 3 travel locations in February, and why you should take a few days away for under £130! (Fly USA to Europe for $170 round trip)

 

Rome
