Is there a city your loved one has been wanting to tick off their bucket list? Show you've been listening by gifting them a city break for a special occasion. Whether they want to walk over the Charles Bridge during a trip to Prague, marvel at Milan's incredible architecture or ride the famous yellow tram in Lisbon, there are so many amazing bucket-list breaks to pick from.
Drop in a few careful questions and listen carefully and you'll discover all you need to know to book your city-break gift. You'll also need to determine whether they love to travel solo, together with a companion or as part of an escorted tour.
When a far-flung destination is out of the question, take your loved one on an adventure to a destination they've never before visited in the UK -- you don't have to be abroad to go exploring, after all! There are so many incredible destinations all across the UK that are just waiting to be discovered, so take your loved one on a journey to a brand-new location or go back to a special place that means something to you both.
Our UK breaks range from country stays in castles to coastal inn escapes and everything in between. You're certain to discover something that suits the occasion.
If your loved one is always seeking travel trips that are out of the ordinary, this is the perfect opportunity to add to their list of lesser-known destinations. Search within the Travelzoo 'section and you'll unlock a treasure trove of incredible destinations all over the world.
You'll be able to match an adventure type to the personality of the person you're buying for, and there are an incredible amount of holiday types to choose from.
If they usually travel on a shoestring budget but really deserve some R&R, why not look for an all-inclusive package, cruise or luxury escape? If your loved one adores being active and is always on the go, then seek out activity holidays so they can tour, trek and even ski in a variety of beautiful locations. Buying for a sun-seeker? Gift them a sun-soaked beach break for the ultimate present.
Travel accessories & essentials
If you've bought the gift of a travel break voucher and want to add some additional smaller presents, there are plenty to choose from.
You could, for example, wrap items up to act as hints. Maybe you could gift them a world map so your loved one can stick pins in or scratch off locations they've visited, or a personalised passport case and luggage tags. Search for a rucksack or case with lots of compartments if they regularly travel on city breaks or long weekends and need a hand-luggage bag. For the true adventurer, opt for gifts such as a GPS hiking watch or in-depth travel guides for some pre-holiday reading.
