Getting Away from the Summer Holiday Rush

By London Designer Outlet

As fun as summer is, getting about can be difficult. Families are buzzing around thanks to the summer holidays, and people of all ages throughout the UK tend to seek the sun in warmer climates the world over. Summer is peak time for flights and traffic, so the travel expenses can really rack up.

Should you be looking to save money and wish to avoid the hustle-and-bustle of summer travelling, planning your holidays early can be a real boon. You can go to all sorts of places UK- and Europe- wide for bargain prices, and sometimes go to parts of the world you might not have thought about before. That trip to Asia or South America? Much cheaper when going outside of the UK peak season of July to September. Plus, going to some warmer climates before June means you’re more likely to get the best weather in many areas of the Southern hemisphere.

Even if you’re just thinking of trips in the UK and Ireland, going pre-summer is a good choice. Scotland, Ireland, and Wales are all great for day trips and camping, as is much of England. County Antrim, Ullswater, the Peak District, Edinburgh, Brecon Beacons, Cornwall … The number of beautiful places to go in the UK is astounding.
