Simon Read has looked at the latest deals for saving money in September 2018...
£25 trip to Paris
Fancy a trip to Paris for £25 this autumn? You’ll need to travel with three friends to but you could also go to Brussels instead, or as well!
Return tickets under Eurostar’s current promotion are the same price.
You’ll need to book for Paris or Brussels by September 24 for travel between October 2 and December 12 2018.
But don’t expect to get the offer at the most popular times — Monday mornings, Fridays, Saturday afternoons and Sundays.
