Looking for Cheap Lastminute Mini Breaks?

Not every trip away has to be a lengthy holiday that empties your bank account. For a cheaper option, why not take a mini break of one or two nights to a destination closer to home? With budget airlines and the Eurostar, many of Europe's finest cities are as easy to get to as cities in Britain. Here's some options for cheap mini breaks for that perfect weekend getaway.

Lastminute.com currently offer special deals on the Eurostar to cities like Paris and Brussels. Brussels in particular can be reached in less than two hours and tickets to the Belgian capital can be had for low prices. A trip for two to the historic city costs from around £214 per person including two nights accommodation at the four star Husa President Park Hotel just a short walk from the railway station and return tickets on the Eurostar train. Trains for this trip depart from London Saint Pancras.

Berlin is another city within fairly easy reach of London, and this vibrant and exciting city, one of the cultural capitals of the world, makes for a great holiday. Lastminute offer mini-breaks to the German city from as little as £144 per person including return flights on Easyjet from Luton, and one night's accommodation in the four star Excelsior Hotel Berlin.

Lastminute can also fix you up with a stay in the refined French city of Bordeaux, a great destination for wine lovers. With miles of pleasant boulevards, sedate parks and fancy restaurants galore, Bordeaux is France's hidden gem. Return flights from London and two nights at the three star City Residence Bordeaux Centre will set you back £121 per person.
