Did you know that American social activist Anna Jarvis from Philadelphia lobbied the government for an official day to honor mothers in the US? Anna Jarvis is the original “Mother of Mother’s Day” and we’ve been honouring her tradition ever since.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we’re taking the stress out of planning with our top three trips to treat your mom to an unforgettable experience in Europe, whilst not breaking the bank.

Grab a bargain in Budapest

Budapest, the capital of Hungary is fast becoming the to-go-to city in Europe, offering elegant architecture with a sophisticated twist. Budapest is also noticeable cheaper than Paris, Rome or London, making it fantastic value for money – without compromise.

There’s so much to do here, from taking a soak with your mom in the thermal Széchenyi Baths, to stepping up the action on Segway tour, or kicking back with a relaxing evening river cruise. Additionally if you book your flight or hotel through the Expedia App you can save $25 here when you spend $100!

Thermal Szechenyi Baths

Enjoy afternoon tea in London

For a quintessentially British experience go ahead and treat your mom to Afternoon Tea. For those that like the finer things in life, there’s really only one place to have Afternoon Tea – The Ritz Hotel, London.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with over 18 different types of loose leaf tea to choose from, accompanied by elegant finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, not forgetting the most exquisite pastries and teacakes.

The luxurious surroundings include glittering chandeliers and elegant mirrors, with each table immaculately set with the finest silver teapot and delicate china plates. Afternoon Tea is served daily at just $62 or £54 per person.

Before you plan your trip - Flight services have some great discounts on offer with last minute flights starting from $79.99.


A spot of shopping in Paris

Treat your mum to an overnight stay in a chic Parisian hotel and enjoy a sophisticated shopping experience in the shopping capital of the world.

A shopping experience in Paris is second to none with every taste catered for, from small independent boutiques to established global chains, and of course France’s flagship haute couture fashion houses.

You would be forgiven for mistaking the Galeries Lafayette® Paris Haussmann to be art gallery, rather than a department store. Built in 1895 it beautifully houses the latest trends in high-end Parisian apparel and is a must-visit for any seasoned shopper.
