How much does a cheap holiday from UK to Europe cost?

Let's base it on 2 people sharing, could be a couple or 2 friends.

FOR EXAMPLE,
THESE ARE ESTIMATES BASED ON PAST EXPERIENCE AND SEARCHING FOR HOLIDAYS

Flights - Return low cost Easy Jet or Monarch flights
£150 EACH PERSON ONE WAY (including check in and 1 hold bag)
That's £300 return x 2 = £600

Hotel/Apartment/Self-Catering
To include half to full board (2 or 3 meals included in the price a day)
Hotel £400 a week + £100 for extra person meals

Going Out/Taxis/Touristic Attractions
based on £100 for taxis, £100 tourist events, drinks, snacks, lunch, tea), £150 dinners, £150 nightlife (dinner, bars, clubs) £500 a week for activities

£1000 for shopping, 
Duty Free, tourist items, presents, clothes,

And keep 200 euros each cash spare

FOR 2 WEEKS

The whole holiday would cost approximately £3500 for 2 people sharing at a hotel or in self catering accommodation but with half or full board included and flights.

......................

HOW TO CUT THESE COSTS

FLIGHTS £120 1WAY  £480
ACTIVITIES          £300
GOING OUT          £200
SHOPPING            £500

HOTEL (£350 WK) £700

YOU SAVE AROUND £1000

For a 2 week holiday it will only cost £2180 and add 200 euros each spending money

And if the flights and hotel are bought together as a package you could get a deal as low as £600 for 2 weeks at a hotel, full board, and including flights, saving another £500. And activities and going out costs can be reduced again down to £350 in total and shopping down to £300. Saving £1150 (£2500-1150)

TOTAL £1350

For a 2 week holiday it will cost over £1000 for 2 people sharing. And this is without really spending a lot of money and just doing a bit of shopping.
