Here are the four parks included in the offer, with postcodes so you can quickly check on Google maps which is closest for you to travel to.

One of the biggest money-saving deals is at Pontins Prestatyn Sands with two-night breaks costing from £79, covering a stay from Friday August 19 to Saturday August 20. This deal works out at £9.88 per person per night.
Pontins can be a great way to enjoy a break without having to worry about all the chores associated with travel abroad, such as in-date passports, visas and vaccinations. Staying at a Pontins can also be good for the local economy whilst giving you the chance to see more of the beautiful UK countryside on your doorstep.
For example, if staying at Prestatyn Sands, you can explore the surrounding green countryside, as well as the grounds of Prestatyn Castle for a culture-packed family day out.
There are other ways to save money on holidays too. According to Money Saving Expert, package holidays and late deals are usually cheaper. However, always make sure you run your costs through a travel comparison site such as Kayak or Travel Supermarket to get the best deal.
