Tip one: Don’t be put off by North Coast 500’s accessibility and length of time required to visit. With over 500 miles of rugged, natural and majestic scenery is it an epic road trip; one not to be missed.

per person based on a family of four

Tip one: Want to visit Croatia but it's too expensive? Go to Montenegro.When looking where to summer holiday, save costs by visiting the next country along – often it is very similar climatically and geographically, just at half the price.
Tip two: Cut the cost of transport – If you can't afford transport around Europe, look into carpooling. There you get to jump into someone else's car, ride share and just pay for petrol, often making it much cheaper than travelling by bus or train.
Tip three: If you're looking to save some money, make a packed lunch. If you go to the local market and buy things like fruit and sliced meats, it'll be much cheaper than eating out for every meal. Also, it's often a lot healthier than eating heavy stodgy food, and it'll make you appreciate dinner so much more.
Experience different cultures
For 23%, the main motivation for a holiday is to experience different cultures – from discovering the delights of historic towns and colourful cities to escaping to a cosy country cottage or staying by the sea with views of charming coastlines. Take your pick!

Tip one: In 2016 I would recommend going for a mix of exciting new destinations and old favourites to please all the family. I always look for a mix of nature and culture in a destination and a holiday.
Tip two: My main motivations are experiencing other cultures and seeing the world's most beautiful landscapes. Sri Lanka and Morocco tick those boxes, with something to interest the whole family. I have chosen Austria for skiing in 2016 because I have heard great things about ski schools for kids in Austria.
