Going on holiday can be expensive. But it doesn’t have to be… we are here to give you the top cheap long haul holidays that will have something for the whole family. From Africa to Thailand, you can explore them all!

Thailand

There’s a reason why Thailand remains the most popular destination for backpackers… it has the idyllic islands, enriched culture, an abundance of beach huts, spectacular cuisine, and an opportunity for adventure around every corner – all of which are available as part of this cheap long haul destination. If you’re looking to escape the crowds then check out the Nakhon Si Thammarat for some of the best food the country has to offer. Alternatively you can grab a motorbike and make the 600km trip along the Mae Hong Son Loop an exciting one.

South Africa

If you are looking for a cheap safari adventure then South Africa is the place to go! Head to Drakensberg for superlative hiking and Hluhuwe-Imfolozi to see the unique white rhinos. But you cannot travel to South Africa without visiting Cape Town. Try something new in the capital of Africa – go abseiling down Table Mountain or soak up the sun on the Clifton beaches, or if you want to take the edge off, then take a trip to Glen Carlou Vineyard for some delicious wine tasting.

Uruguay

If you’ve already visited Brazil or Argentina but are looking for a cheaper option then head to their neighbour Uruguay. But don’t worry you’ll still find steak just has good here! Plus a wide range of stunning beaches to choose from. Alternatively you could head off to Cabo Polonio for quieter sands and abundant wildlife, and of course you can’t miss the breathtaking capital of Montevideo.
