Have you been going on self catering holidays at home and perhaps to Spain for years now? You have really enjoyed these family holidays and they are not too expensive, but now you really feel that you would like to take a luxury trip to celebrate a special event, such as a Milestone birthday or an important anniversary. You want to make it a holiday of a lifetime, and it is going to cost you thousands and thousands of pounds and you do not want to make such a big hole in your bank account.
If you are a homeowner, a good solution could be a secured loan. A secured loan releases equity in your property, and can be used for most purposes, including of course a holiday. It takes about three weeks to receive your funds after making your application. Secured loans usually start at £ 5,000, but you can even borrow up to £ 100,000, although this would be an excess sum to spend on a holiday. Make sure you apply for your secured loan in plenty of time to pay for your trip and also to have the pounds sterling available to change into euros. Then sit down and plan your dream trip.
You have always fancied going to Italy, and to have a really luxurious holiday there. Now courtesy of your secured loan you can go. You decide that you are going to fly first class to Milan and hire a car and tour from there. It is worth spending a few days in this city. It is a paradise for shopping especially for designer clothes. They are all there, Gucci, Valentino, Armani, etc. There are many wonderful hotels to chose from, and with your secured loan funds you can afford to treat yourself.
From Milan you can easily take a day trip to beautiful Lake Como, arguably the most beautiful of the Italian Lakes.
Dine at one of the many excellent lakeside restaurants. One special bonus of a holiday in Italy is the wonderful food and good local wine, in addition to the normally very friendly local people.
Your secured loan really is putting the wonderful flavors of Italian food into your mouth.
After Milan you can head south to Tuscany with it's beautiful capital, Florence. Florence again is a Mecca for shoppers and in particular leather goods. All top designers have shops in Florence, and courtesy of your secured loan you can treat yourself to a Gucci handbag which will cost you considerably less than in Britain. Florence is a treasure trove of art and history, and with your secured loan you will be able to enjoy all the wonderful sights such as the Ponte Vecchio with it's delightful little shops, especially jewelery shops. Why not treat yourself to a piece of jewelry, and have a souvenir to remind you of your wonderful Italian holiday made possible with your secured loan
See all the wonderful statues and artwork on display in the many galleries.
When you leave Florence, and I am sure you will leave it with a heavy heart, travel south again, through the world famous Chianti Hills, immortalized by so many famous paintings. There are dozens and dozens of little towns and villages, all worth a visit. The food here is also wonderful, and a beautifully cooked juicy steak is made even more tasty when accompanied with a good bottle of the local wine, Chianti, which of course takes it's name from the area in which it is produced. Imagine all this pleasure due to you arranging a secured loan. You really must visit the breathtaking city of Sienna, home of the famous Palio. Sit in the main Square where the Palio takes place and enjoy a glass of wine or even sip an espresso.
Wander through the ancient narrow streets which seem unchanged by time and gaze at the quaint little shops. You can buy some of the locally produced ceramics which you should buy as a souvenir. You can well afford to, due to your secured loan
