The first thing that travelers who are planning family weekend breaks in Scotland should do is figure out how they will get to Scotland. One of the easiest ways to get to Scotland from Ireland or the UK is to get a budget flight. These can be searched for and purchased on the website Skyscanner.net. As at the 29th of July, 2011 the cheapest return flight from London to Glasgow is €100.
The next step in planning family weekend breaks in Scotland is booking accommodation. As travelers tend to take weekend breaks at the last minute it would be wise to take advantage of last minute accommodation discounts. A lot of hotels in Scotland sell their hotel rooms at reduced prices so that they do not have an empty room on their hands. They would rather make a small amount of money on a room than no money at all. This means that holidaymakers will be able to access accommodation that is on offer for as much as 75% off the original room. This is an excellent way for families to save money as they need to buy accommodation for multiple people. One of the best websites to get late rates is the website Laterooms.com. Currently the website has rooms available for as little as €50 per night. Families that take advantage of these discounts will find that they will end up spending less than €600 on flights and accommodation to Scotland. Families will then be able to plan free or paid activities they wish to partake in on their holiday.
