  • The hot tub deals that will help you to relax for less

    Looking for the best hot tub deals? There’s nothing quite like stepping into the soothing waters of an outdoor jacuzzi, and even better if you can enjoy the therapeutic waters from the comfort of your own backyard.

    A hot tub can transform your garden into a resort-style spa, offering the perfect way to unwind after a busy day or soothe away the aches and pains from tired limbs. And with prices for the cheapest inflatable hot tubs now well under £500, enjoying an outdoor jacuzzi is no longer the preserve of the multi-millionaire.

    So whether you’re looking for a super affordable hot tub for two, a larger jacuzzi for the whole family to enjoy, or a party piece to entertain guests, we’ve searched high and low to find the very best deals and most affordable outdoor spa options to transform your outside space.

    How to find the best hot tub deal for you

    Just before we get to the money-saving deals, there are a few key points worth mentioning to help you find the right hot tub option for you:

    Size: Thinking about how many people will regularly use your hot tub at any one time is one of the most important aspects to consider before you buy. Hot tub ‘person capacity’ can often be a little optimistic, so if a hot tub says it will fit four people, then that can often mean four adults will fit seated, but, it’s likely to be a fairly snug fit – and not necessarily the relaxing experience you envisaged. Fine for a one-off evening, but if there will regularly be four people using the spa at once, sizing up to a six-person capacity is likely to be a decision you won’t regret.

    Water capacity: One of the best ways to compare hot tubs – rather than relying on the manufacturer’s guidance on how many people can fit comfortably which can differ between brands – is to compare water capacity. This will give a truer picture of the internal space a hot tub offers – and you might find some ‘4-person’ hot tubs that are actually more roomy than those advertised as ‘6-person’ this way.

    Air jets: The air jets are what creates those relaxing bubbles we all love, so generally the more of them the better in an inflatable hot tub. This differs slightly in hardshell Plug & Play hot tubs which generally have a lesser number of more powerful jets.
