HotUKDeals Of The Day - Friday 20th March

20 March 2009

The end of another punishing working week is almost here, and thoughts of escape are filling our heads. But where can we go, and how can we do it on the cheap?

Use today’s hand-picked bargains from the HotUKDeals forums as your travel guide and soon all of this will just be a horrible memory…

Kicking off, a major UK national daily tabloid newspaper will be launching what they’re calling their biggest ever summer holiday offer as of tomorrow, with trips available to 310 locations in UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, Holland and Belgium.

Which newspaper will you need to get your hands on in order to take advantage of this fantastic offer? We’re not saying – you’ll have to click on this link for more info…

If you do go on a UK holiday, you’re almost certainly going to go on a picnic at some point. After all, what else are holidays about if they’re not about sitting in a stiff breeze and not speaking to your family while sand whizzes all around your sausage rolls and Scotch eggs?

You’ll need at least one of these – a roll-up picnic blanket, available in three classic picnic blanket colours; red tartan, marine blue tartan and grey tartan. You DO like tartan don’t you? Good, and they’re just a pound apiece. More info here

Lastly, if you’re really strapped for cash and can’t afford to travel over any great distances, here’s what we like to call a life hack. New customers to courier company Interlink Direct can receive a £5 voucher if they follow the instructions here.

Then, simply parcel yourself up (ideally with some sweets and bananas and a bottle of water to keep you going) and send yourself to the destination of your choice. It could take a few days and the journey might get bumpy at times but ask yourself this – would it be that much worse than flying Ryanair?
