Benidorm Weekend and Short Breaks

BENIDORM WEEKEND AND SHORT BREAKS 2018

Benidorm Sunset Poniente

With a flight time of about 2 hours and an average transfer time of under 60 minutes Benidorm is the perfect destination for a weekend away or a short break.  If you are short on time or just have a few days leave remaining, then Benidorm is a hot pick for an affordable mini-break, especially out of season when you will find cheap flights from under £100 and quality hotels from as little as £36 a night half-board.  If you are flexible on your travel dates it is pretty easy to find 2 or 3 nights away for around £200 including a flight, transfer, accommodation, sun, fun and the beach.

For the best deals, it is best to build your own short break using an online booking site like sunshine or ontheBeach where you can mix up an Alicante flight with any available hotel to meet your budget.  The good news is that when you book a flight and hotel together with our recommended travel partners your weekend away or mid-week Benidorm break will be financially protected by an ATOL

Benidorm offers over 250 hotels and apart-hotels all less than 15 minutes walk from the beach. We recommend making the most out of a short break with a stay in the old town where you will find a traditional Spanish atmosphere in a central location surrounded by superb Tapas bar, restaurants, and shops.  The old town is also wrapped up on either side by the quiet Poniente and lively Levante beaches offering the perfect location to truly unwind, so important when your time is so short.

If you are short of time to look for a place to stay, here are our hot pick hotels for a few nights stay in Benidorm old town:

LOW-COST: 2 Star Hotel Internacional

Benidorm Last Minute Holidays

Benidorm Poniente

Benidorm last minute holidays can be a great way to bag yourself a bargain late deal if you can travel soon.  The best prices are to found if you are able to be flexible on your date of departure and departure airport.

Tour operators are always in a hurry to fill those final seats on Alicante flights and those final contracted rooms in hotels with late sales.  Checking out package holiday offers is your best chance to bag a cheap last minute holiday in Benidorm, also worth considering is to build your own holiday and travel independently as this can make for even bigger savings.  This is especially true out of season when flights may not be full and hotels are falling over themselves to discount room rates and fill empty rooms before it is too late.  The best time for the biggest savings is 10/14 days before you wish to travel when final seat-filler deals are released and if you keep your Spanish destination options open, you can save up to 35% on a few selected hotels.

Naturally, your choice of how many hotels to stay may well be limited and you may have to forfeit one or two “must have” options, like beachfront locations or those most popular hotels, but the savings can make up for this.

Our recommended travel partner based on the likely best savings are: For a Benidorm last minute package holiday we suggest TUI Holidays (UK) and to build your own last minute holiday, flight plus hotel plus extras, we recommend Sunshine Holidays (UK).   For more choice and holiday options our Benidorm Holidays travel site has all you need to make a perfect break in Spain.
