Strawberries and Cream... and Cookies too!

With the Jubilee just past, summer fast approaching and Wimbledon just around the corner we've decided to catch the mood of the season and gone all Strawberries and Cream at Go2! Check out our fresh new summer look... (yes, we know the football's on too but you can't eat footballs.... can you?)

You'll also notice one or two other changes at Go2. In line with new EU regulations regarding online privacy we've added a new Privacy setting button (and banner on your first visit) offering the option to switch off certain cookie usage (if you really want to), along with more extensive information about cookies and their usage on our Privacy and Cookies page. If you're not sure what cookies are (the computer kind) be sure to have a read.

Great Deals With Irish Ferries

In these tough economic times everyone's looking for a special offer and Go2 brings you the very best deals going. Not only does our Search and Comparison enable you to find accommodation sorted by price, but we regularly bring you promotions, discounts and late availability deals. Simply check out our Offers page or keep an eye on the Offers section on any property detail listing. Not only will you find great deals on accommodation but we'll also point you at the best travel related promotions such as the great low-cost ferry deals available from Irish Ferries

Yes, if you’re travelling to or from Ireland then don't forget the ferry! Not only does a ferry ride give you the freedom of taking your own car but it provides a superb experience of travelling by sea and exploring the coastline. What better way to begin a holiday to Ireland than to approach the shores of the Emerald Isle by sea? With convenient routes between Holyhead and Dublin, or Pembroke and Rosslare, we recommend Irish Ferries for great, low-cost, transport. They are the leading Irish ferry company and provide both an excellent service, and excellent prices.

May is Mountains (and Lakes) Month at Go2...

As mentioned last week May is Mountains (and Lakes) Month at Go2 and we'd like to hear your thoughts, tips, experiences and advice on as many places in the Lake District, the Peak District, Snowdonia, the Highlands, or anywhere else mountainous (or full of lakes) in the UK that you'd like to talk about. May and June are a great time of year for getting in to the mountains for a walk, so why not point your fellow travellers in the right direction?

Been to the Lake District?

Have you been to the Lake District? Perhaps to Keswick or Windermere or Cockermouth? Well, why not tell us about it? Take a look at and click on one of the towns listed (for example Windermere). From there you can scroll down to the bottom of that town's guide and enter your own 'User Guide' or comment using the form at the bottom. You can write about whatever you want as long as it's about that town and helpful to others. Perhaps you have a favourite restaurant or ice cream parlour? Perhaps there's an excellent walking or cycling route nearby? Perhaps you know of an upcoming event or festival? Or perhaps you have some advice for others on the best places to visit in the area? Whatever it is, we want to hear from you! (And if you happen to run a local business in the Lake District then you're more than welcome to give it a mention too.)

May is Mountains (and Lakes) Month at Go2... so we want to hear what our visitors like (and don't like)... so get writing now. After all, the best user guide left on Go2 every month stands to win a £10 Next Voucher. Then what's there to lose?
