Infographic – the best value city breaks and stopovers

Apparently, the UK has some changing holiday habits. Instead of using up all your holiday in one go and then not having anything else to look forward to the rest of the year we’re now choosing to opt for smaller and but more frequent trips. Many travellers/holidaymakers are eschewing the traditional fortnight getaway for ten, seven or weekend breaks instead. It makes sense – shorter breaks are much easier to plan, there’s an abundance of cheap short-haul flight deals around and it lessens the risk of being stuck for too long in hotel or resort that doesn’t live up to our expectations (which has probably happened to us all at one time or another)!

Another increasing trend for Brits is the stopover. Your destination is on the other side of the Atlantic or a far-flung corner of the globe and you have the option to either fly there in one go in a potentially very long and uncomfortable journey or you could break up that gruelling flight to make it much more manageable and see all those other amazing places along the way too. Yep we can see why so many more travellers are now opting for this! 

HSBC Bank plc, one of the largest banks in the world and a place where you can easily order your travel money for your next trip, have put today this handy City Breaks and Stopovers Infographic which shows you exactly how far your money will go on your next trip from everything from food and beverages to hotels and attractions…

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
