Got plans for this weekend? Break them! Cut loose from London and head off somewhere exciting with us…
Time Out has teamed up with Booking.com to prove that travel shouldn’t be about ‘waiting for the right time’ but seizing the moment and winging it. Booking.com has such a wide range of amazing places to stay (user rated by people like you) that you can sort out your accommodation in advance, en route or even when you get to your destination.
We’ve got six bloggers to put our mission to the test. They don’t know where they’re going until they’re handed their travel tickets. Off they’ll go in search of new experiences in their mystery destinations, armed only with the Booking.com app to make sure they can sort themselves great places to stay while they’re away. Read about our latest bloggers’ adventures.
PLUS find other great things to do, places to stay and see how Booking.com can help you escape this weekend! Be spontaneous! #WingIt
