Anyone up for a holiday in the sun? I thought so. Read on.
Hotels.com is almost through a 72 hour sale with up to 50% off hotels worldwide. The sale ends at some point today, so get right on it.
You have to book today for travel between today and 30 December, so this might be an early Christmas gift, or a Christmas to New Year gift, but don't mistakenly buy for next year some time!
A great example of what's on offer is the Barcelona Apartment Aramunt, for two adults and two children. Normally £113 a night, the standard room is reduced to £55 a night or the executive room to £64.
A Monday - Friday stay towards the end of the month would cost my family £220, with free Wifi.
That doesn't strike me as being very much for a week near the tourist hotspots of Barcelona, with the outdoor swimming pool, wireless internet access, a rooftop terrace, washers/dryers and a safe, as well as self catering kitchen facilities - great for the budget too.
There are a few extras, like parking, so make sure to read through all the details of whichever hotel you choose, and enjoy a pre-Christmas getaway!
