The vaccine roll out and England's lockdown roadmap are offering a glimmer of hope for those wanting to plan a getaway - but the ongoing uncertainty in the pandemic don't exactly make it tempting to book right now. The good news is that there are plenty of deals to be had which you can secure now, without needing to immediately commit to a trip. Red Letter Days and Buyagift both have a number of romantic minibreaks you can book from GBP99 - and because they're vouchers, you can bag the offer and then plan your trip and dates later. (If Covid means you're unable to use the voucher, you may be able to extend its validity - check the T&Cs before buying).
In fact, the two voucher websites have noted spikes in searches for their romantic getaways from glamping weekends to spa breaks, since England's lockdown roadmap was announced in February. We take a look at some of the top deals to be had depending on whether you're after a glamping weekend, spa break or a hotel getaway - check out our top picks below.
