Best city breaks


Save money on a city break by booking a stay at one of these top holiday rentals. Opting for a holiday apartment over a hotel will save you money per person and it means you can live like a local while you’re away.



City getaways make fantastic mini-breaks in the new year. Jet off to Rome, Florence or London to soak up the centuries of history, art and culture. Or turn your trip into a shopping spree or a romantic post-Christmas getaway.



With so many cheap flights on offer, European city breaks are even more affordable than before. You could even squeeze in a city stop on the way to your main holiday. And inviting friends or family along means you’ll each spend less on a shared city apartment or villa.
