Summer Weekend Getaway: Amsterdam

amsterdam-sunSummer warmth is the perfect excuse to plan an amazing weekend getaway, and Amsterdam makes an ideal escape from London.

A weekend in Amsterdam can be filled with anything from culture to sightseeing to an exploration of the, um, coffee shop experience. Or maybe you fancy a canal cruise?

Flying from London to Amsterdam is very easy, and many low-cost airlines offer excellent deals. Once your flight is booked, it’s time to look for cheap Amsterdam hotels.

Sample price tag: if you plan to leave London on June 25 and return on June 27, roundtrip flight fares start at £110 per person, while room rates start at £60 per room per night in a 4-star hotel (located between the city centre and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport).

Overall, if you plan a summer weekend getaway in advance, you’ll be able to save money on both accommodation and flight. Remember that summer is typically an expensive time to travel within Europe, and weekends tend to be more expensive and crowded than weekdays.
