5 Quick Getaways for the Weekend Warrior in All of Us

It’s easy to catch the travel bug – there’s a big beautiful world out there, after all. And it’s just waiting to be explored.

But with full-time jobs and other responsibilities, it can be difficult to succumb to the wanderlust. So what’s the cure? A short weekend getaway, that’s what.

A brief excursion will appease your travel bug without sacrificing precious vacation days or breaking the bank. Remember, travelling doesn’t have to be a multi-country excursion, it can simply mean discovering a nearby city and seeing what it has to offer. So call shotgun, head to the train station or get to the airport and take off to some of Booking.com’s favourite weekend escape hotspots.
