News of airline pilot strikes and package holiday firms collapsing seems to dominate the headlines but that shouldn't stop you looking for a great city break or family holiday with a low-cost airline or tour operator. One of the best places to head to whether you're going alone, as a couple or with your entire family, is Barcelona. According to statista.com, nine million tourists treat themselves to a holiday in the Spanish city each year. That makes the city the 25th most popular in the world and the sixth most popular in Europe. Tourism plays a major part in the city's economy so visitors of all ages will find themselves catered for.
This site is an ideal one to start with. A quick Google search for "Barcelona Holidays" will bring you straight to a page on the site offering great deals. If you find something you're interested in, you can put in your holiday's start and end dates and then see what offers are available for that period. Information on the top hotels is just a click away and if you're not sure that Barcelona is the right destination, you can find out the best holiday deals flying from your local airport and pick a city or family break from there.
Whether you're heading to Barcelona for sightseeing, nightlife, dining out or shopping, Kayak.com has loads of smart tools that make the decision on which hotel to book easy. You aren't just checking through a list of hotels based on their price of star rating when you can view each hotel's location and see how close they are to the things you want to do on your Barcelona break. You can get price alerts for flights on hotels by Email but that's not the best thing about the site. The "Explore" section allows you to set a budget, select your trip type and allow Kayak to find the right location for you. Ideal if you're not fixed on going to Barcelona.
Trivago keeps things simple. You just tell the site your check-in and check-out dates along with your preferred type of room, single, double or family, and then look through a list of hotels and holidays that are available on other websites. This site's the ultimate comparison site because it compares all the holiday sites and lists them by recommendations, ratings or price. You might end up booking through one of the other sites listed here but the beauty of Trivago is that you won't miss out of the very best deals on offer. Prices change all the time based on falling or rising demand. That fact makes Trivago a site you need to visit.
Some holidays are a spare of the minute decision. Perhaps the school holidays have arrived and you realise you should fly away. Maybe you break for Christmas and want to go somewhere sunny for the festive season. Whatever your reason, lastminute.com will have great offers on hundreds of holidays. Finding a deal is quick and easy but take the time to refine it before committing your money. Do you want to stay somewhere that offers breakfast each morning? Is the hotel's star rating important? Do you need a place with a pool? Don't just jump at the lowest priced holiday.
