Ahhhh the August Bank Holiday, always cherished in the calendar as we are normally very fortunate to have good weather! Historically that is also why we have this fabulous (sometimes) sunny Bank Holiday, unlike other Bank Holidays, the August holiday does not represent a religious holiday. It was selected to give workers a last chance to enjoy the summer, before the long period without holidays up to Christmas.
However this August Bank Holiday is being reported as one of the hottest yet! So it was great planning having this day off before the run up to Christmas! Around 5.1 million will be heading off for breaks within the UK, so stay safe on those roads and make sure you keep the kids entertained whilst waiting in traffic jams! Head over to the Disney stores + 2.00% CashCoins to see what the latest offer are on toys and games making sure to keep kids entertained for hours! If you've planned day trips and don't fancy driving yourself why don't you get a coach with National Express up to + 2.00% and see what the top deals currently are.
Meanwhile around two million Brits will be travelling abroad from Friday until Monday making the most of their time off. France is a top destination as it is easy to travel to and many travel by car, Spain is also very popular and many travellers will heading to the Costa Brava and the South of Spain where the heat will be scorching!
