All You Need to Know for a Spontaneous City Break

The spring season is all about spontaneity and adventures which makes it the perfect time for a random city break with your friends. But we know it is quite hard to find something last minute so we are here to help you out. All you have to do is text your friends and get everyone’s schedule and then read this article for all the tips and tricks regarding the trip. We put together some suggestions for how to organize a city break in a cheap and fast way so you don’t have to worry about anything. Read along and make sure you check out TripAdvisor for the itinerary and hidden gems for your chosen destination.


The first thing you have to get settled for any trip is how you get there and if you’re planning something in a destination close to you, you can even go for a road trip. But if you’re thinking of flights, we got some tips for you. Instead of going for fixed dates, you can check out Google flight search and select an entire month. This will show you the cheapest dates and you can plan your trip accordingly. If you’re still not sure about the destination, you can go on flight websites and select the departure city and “Anywhere” for the arrival city, this will show you the cheapest city to fly to. Searching for flights this way increases the spontaneity of the trip and will also save some money.


Because we already entered the spring season, packing for any trip is already easier, as you can ditch all the thick winter clothes. But still, depending on the destination you choose, you should have something warm for any situation. We suggest getting a woolen cardigan like the ones here: A cardigan will be perfect for the flight, will save space as you can just wear it and it will also provide enough warmth for any spring day. Because we are talking about a city break, we suggest planning your outfits in advance so you don’t end up overpacking. Make sure your shoes are comfortable and you only need to take one pair and get to save more space in your carry-on.

Weather forecast

The last suggestion we have for you is to plan your activities after consulting the weather forecast. This might seem logical, but it’s important to make sure you have a good plan before you get there, so you don’t end up wasting time. In a city break, you want to make the most of your time and see as much as you can, so planning beforehand is very important. If you’re going with a group of people, make sure you have something that everyone can enjoy, variety is key in group travels. You can check out travel websites, tiktok videos or forums such as reddit to get multiple ideas and be sure you’re not missing out on anything.
