In 2009 we ignored all warnings of a wash-out summer and bought two flexi-rover train/bus tickets to backpack around North and Mid-Wales. At just £25 for the child ticket and £50 for the adult ticket it was easy to work to my budget of £250 for a week’s holiday. Costs were kept down by camping and staying in hostels but we still had money for ice-creams, visits to castles and souvenirs.
