HomeAway travel expert
As one of the most expensive parts of any holiday is the accommodation, saving in this area can free up a lot of cash for the rest of the trip. But a budget holiday needn't call for a compromise of comfort; on the contrary. Whether you're planning your annual summer holiday, or just a few nights away, scouting for bargains offers an unexpected side benefit: a whole new range of holiday destinations you may not have previously thought about visiting.
HomeAway makes it possible for you to book private accommodation directly with the owner, thereby avoiding expensive agency fees. And since our array of potential holiday homes is so wide, you can choose what best suits your family, your budget, and your taste; no matter what the destination. We also offer a rotating range of special offers (look out for the distinctive yellow boxes in the search results, or click the 'special offers' link!). Not sure where to start? Read on for a few of our favourite budget holiday destinations.
Cheap holidays in Tenerife
The island paradise of Tenerife has a magnificent year-round climate, meaning that off-season holidays are still delightfully warm. There are some great deals to be found on bargain holidays to Tenerife, particularly outside peak season, too; so don't assume that a cheap, off-season holiday can't include as much sun and sand as a summer one.

Greece has much to recommend it: it's well known for its sunny beaches, and world-famous monuments dating to (and past!) the birth of democracy.
