Sometimes all it takes is a weekend away to feel like you’ve had time away from the stresses of everyday life. A city break is perfect – a change of environment with plenty to discover will make you feel a million miles from home. Whether you fancy strolling round Paris with your loved one or a weekend of shopping and sightseeing in New York, a city of sights is the perfect destination for your mini-break.
It can be pretty overwhelming booking a city break as you want to get the most out of the weekend and it’s not like a package holiday where everything is booked in one go!
There’s a lot to consider when booking a weekend away but with easyfundraising it couldn’t be simpler and you’ll be raising free donations for your cause every time you make a travel purchase for your weekend away! It’ll make your mini getaway all the sweeter. So, first things first. How will you get there?
If you’re off on a European city adventure, the quickest way to get to your destination is by flying so you can make the most of your few days away. Airlines do affordable flights from the UK to Europe if you book in advance. You’ll raise free donations when you book your flight to your European getaway with Flybe.com, Monarch Flights, KLM, Air France, Finnair and TAP Portugal. If you’re heading a little further for your city break, such as Dubai or New York, look to see what Emirates and British Airways has to offer.
You’ll of course need to get to and from the airport. Did you know you can also book airport car parking via easyfundraising? Retailers such as Heathrow Airport Parking and Airparks Airport Parking offer free donations too!
