High street travel retailer Flight Centre has a crop of well-priced deals if you're planning to dodge the Royal Wedding weekend. A three-night trip to the canals and culture of Amsterdam costs £329 per person at the Amstel Botel, a floating hotel. The price also includes breakfast and return flights departing Heathrow on 28 April.

Departing 30 April, it takes in Amalfi, Ravello, Positano and Sorrento and includes sightseeing trips to Pompeii, hiking excursions, and accommodation with breakfast; transport and a guide are included, but flights are not.
