Bine, acuma nah… cât de cât ieftine. Pentru unii foarte ieftine, adică pentru englezi, pentru noi aşa şi aşa dacă muncim un an întreg. Dar sunt şi mari excepţii. Am citit în Daily Telegraph un material care propune „101 vacanţe de vară pe care lumea şi le poate permite”. Aşadar există un loc în Anglia, superb, la munte, unde plăteşti 7 lire sterline pe noapte. Se numeşte Barn in the Lake District, iar poza este mai jos…
Buuuun… dar după vreo 20 de oferte interesante din Anglia urmează şi cele mai exotice. În Islanda de exemplu, trei nopţi costă 400 de lire. În Canada, Toronto preţul scade deja cu 100 de lire. Sunt şi oferte mai mari, de 1100 de lire de exemplu, dar oferta este pentru New York şi Las Vegas! Una din cele mai atractive oferte însă este pe o plajă din Tobago. O săptămână la un hotel pe această plajă este 560 de lire sterline…
Tot articolul cu cele 101 oferte îl puteţi citi cu un simplu click dat mai jos
Have you booked your summer holiday yet? I thought not. You’re in good company because the surge in bookings normally associated with the post-New Year period simply didn’t happen this year.

So for those who’d like to take the plunge without spending a fortune, we offer a selection of 101 affordable holidays across the world. All prices are per person, per week, unless stated otherwise, for the dates specified; similar holidays are available on other dates at different prices. All holidays are subject to availability.
