City breaks can be so easy to fit into your life and getting the chance to explore some of the world’s most iconic places in just a couple of days is so rewarding. Wandering through the quaint streets of Paris, navigating the hustle and bustle of New York or soaking up the culture in Amsterdam, wherever you choose we’re here to make your city break that little bit easier.
Even for the most spontaneous holiday makers, planning your time during a city break getaway is so beneficial. With limited time to explore everything your chosen city has to offer, we recommend making a list of your must-see attractions and deciding beforehand when you’d like to visit them. Planning how you get from one attraction to the other will also help to save time while you’re there, so make sure to research the best modes of transport i.e. bus, tram, train or foot.
Then, of course, with your remaining time you can be your spontaneous self if that’s how you like to holiday!
Organised trips and excursions are also a great way to manage your time when you’re enjoying a city break, and TUI has tons of pre-bookable experiences for you to choose from. Whether you fancy a thought-provoking tour or an adrenaline filled adventure, TUI organises everything for you and even offers a flexible 24 hour cancellation policy if you change your mind.
- Research dining and events
You can often stumble upon amazing cafes and restaurants just by wandering the streets, but deciding where to eat can sometimes be a struggle! Taking time before you go to have a look around and see what’s available can help to save you vital time. Reviews can be especially helpful, and they can often point you in the direction of somewhere you may not have considered before.
If you’re unsure on how much cash you might want to bring with you, or you don’t want to carry all your spending money in cash, it could be worth looking into a pre-paid currency card. Many of these cards allow you to top up throughout your holiday, so if you ever run short, you don’t have the stress of trying to find a currency exchange to get some more cash!
