Last minute Valentine's Day breaks

If you’ve left it this late to start thinking about Valentine’s Day, you’re probably panicking.

However, there is one advantage as late deals still available can be snapped up for just a fraction of the price as operators and hoteliers seek to get something rather than nothing for their remaining stock.

For those who want to keep it simple and straight forward, Paris is pretty safe, offering good wine, traditional restaurants and some of Europe’s more romantic views.

Kirker Holidays has long specialised in short breaks to the city and still have a few left for the Valentine’s weekend.

The operator is offering a three night break at the four star superior Le Dokhan from £499 per person.

The cost also includes return tickets on the Eurostar, private transfers, a cruise on the Seine and a bottle of Champagne and a red rose in your room upon your arrival.

Departures are available until February 16.

Those seeking something further afield will find there are still vacancies at the Ca Sa Vilda Marge on Ibiza’s northern coast.

Three nights’ bed and breakfast accommodation at the 400-year-old farmhouse costs about £162 for three night’s accommodation for two from February 11, although you will need to organise your own means of getting there.

Finally, for those wanting to stay in the UK, Superbreak is offering a two-night stay in The Waggoner, a Lake District coaching inn dating back to 1650.

Prices for two night’s bed and breakfast accommodation start at £80 per person based on a February 13 arrival.

If you’ve left it this late to book, at least you won’t have to worry about your travel insurance, offers comprehensive travel insurance, valid from the moment you book should you require.
