Five under £50, 24 January

Five of our favourite deals for £50 or less

Overnight stays in Morocco don’t come much cheaper than this -- £39 per night for a double room with buffet breakfast and dinner for two, plus a hammam or sauna session each. This deal for the Kenzi Europa in the coastal city of Agadir is so cheap, you could even use the money you save to bag a business class flight with BMI -- direct to Agadir Al Massira.  

A bit closer to home, how about a 3-night break in a hotel just a 10-minute drive from the street crowned Britain’s Most Picturesque at the Google Street View Awards in 2010? This deal from the Best Western York Pavilion Hotel equates to just under £30 per person, per night, and includes daily breakfast, a 3-course meal on one night, an upgrade to a Superior Room, an afternoon cream tea, a goody bag and, finally, a voucher for a free personal shopper at York Designer Outlet. So, not only do you come back refreshed, you’ll be better dressed too.

Here at Travelzoo we’re used to pointing you in the direction of bargain flights, swooping down on the juiciest deals and helping you take to the skies en route to the best-value holidays going. That laboured flight-based metaphor can mean only one thing: it’s time to flag up our ornithologists’ favourite, a half-day birds of prey experience at Bedfordshire’s Birds of Prey Centre for £18. Usually £78, this is a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with a range of owls, hawks, eagles, falcons, kites, vultures and, er, pelicans. How the pelicans got in, we’re not sure. Presumably in some kind of hawky fancy dress, and now no-one can get rid of them.   

If that sounds a little too tame, how about something involving guns? Not real guns, of course -- we’re talking rapid-fire, semi-automatic USA-spec paint-splattering ones. With this deal from the Activity Superstore, you and three mates can unleash your inner Rambo on this full-day paintballing experience (at a range of locations across the UK) for £13. Just to be clear, that’s £13 in total, not per person. Kaboom!

And to finish, one for the lovers. That’s right folks, like it or not, Valentine’s Day is on the way, and if you’re looking for something that little bit special, this offer from London’s Minako at the Met restaurant ticks all the boxes. Cocktail each to kick things off in style? Check. Stylish, inventive food to impress your date? Asian-inspired fusion cuisine should deal with that. Incredible views over the capital from the 23rd floor? Naturally. All that for just £49? Valentine’s: done.
