If you are looking for a low maintenance 2 person tent that is quick to set up and take down, than Quechua 2 seconds easy III Tent might be exactly what you need.

The tent comes with a 2 year guarantee and will only set you back £54.99.
A cheaper 2 person option is the Hi Gear Pitch and Go SS. This black and orange tent is extremely easy to pack and unpack weighing in at a mere 1.54 kg it is as lightweight as they come. You will need to peg this one in, but it only costs £24.99 making it extremely affordable for something that will cover your basic needs.
For something a little more durable and stable, try the Vango Ark 200. This is another quite easy to set-up tent with only 2 poles to put in place and it also has a ‘gothic arch’ providing more headroom and stability. Costing £90, this semi-spacious 3.45 kg waterproof tent might be worth the few extra pounds depending on how much room you need.
