Cheap January Weekend Getaways: Cold Climates

January isn’t usually the chosen month to go away, but use this as a great opportunity to grab a bargain! I’ve rounded up some of the cheapest weekend getaways in cold climates for the month of January. This is Part 1 of a Part 2 series, whereby Part 2 focuses on hot climates (mate, I’ve included a 16 day holiday to Sydney for £1,100 so be sure to take a look).

My search criteria for the below was that flights were Friday-Sunday or Saturday-Monday; you don’t wanna use all your annual leave up in the first month of 2018!

Follow the links to be taken to Skyscanner’s search results (my fave search engine for flights). All accommodation prices have been obtained from Airbnb (my fave site for accommodation), so follow those links to see the lovely apartments on offer! Don’t be put off by the average prices, I found a few Airbnb’s in Basel for £50 a night (compared to the £197 average listed).

Well known places…
