Everybody knows there are cheap flights flying about these days, but here a breakdown of just how cheap you can get a weekend away for, I’ve worked this out based on a recent trip to Barcelona, with two people sharing but of course there are tonnes of budget destinations and it’d be silly not to give it a go! Especially with the invention of Air bnb, where people rent out spare rooms to people staying in the city, it’s a great way to stay cheaply in great locations and you get the bonus of a friendly host with a locals perspective.

Flights to Barcelona were £7 each way (Ryan Air) with a £15 credit card charge = £43.
Private 2 bed room on Air bnb was £7 a night, staying Friday and Saturday = £28. Another great option is finding a cheap Barcelona vacation rental with Flipkey.

Coming to a grand total of £71 for two people, or £35.50 each, what this means really is your gonna spend less booking accommodation and flight to Barcelona than if you go out on the lash, its gotta be worth it!
