SPLASHING out on a hot tub doesn’t have to break the bank as we round up the cheapest deals from shops like The Range and B&M.
A professionally installed hot tub can cost you thousands of pounds, but you can find much cheaper options at your favourite stores – with prices starting from around £300.
Cheaper hot tub brands include Lay-Z-Spa, which is sold by high street retailers across the UK.
Other labels you may have heard of include CleverSpa and Wave Atlantic.
Hot tubs tend to fly off the shelves when the weather gets warmer, so keep in mind you may need to be quick to nab a bargain.
How to compare prices to get the best deal
JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn't mean it's always a good deal.
There are plenty of comparison websites out there that’ll check prices for you – so don’t be left paying more than you have to.
Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.
Here are some that we recommend:
- Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
- Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
- Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
- CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.
Brits also look set to spend more time in their garden for the time being, with international travel still facing tight restrictions and a heatwave hitting the country.
Here are some of the best budget hot tub options this summer.
Wave Spas Pacific Tropical Inflatable Hot Tub
- Price: £329.99 – buy now
This tropical hot tub is discounted at the moment, with the price down from £449.99 to £329.99.
Delivery on orders over £50 is also free – so you won’t have to part with any extra cash.
It can easily fit up to four people and heats up to 40C.
If you’re not bothered by the snazzy tropical pattern, you can snap up the same hot tub in grey for an even lower price of £299.
B&M Lay-Z-Spa Vegas Hot Tub
- Price: £450 – buy now
When the lockdown roadmap was announced, B&M launched a range of four new hot tubs all priced under £500.
But with Brits so eager to enjoy the June heatwave, most of the range is temporarily sold out.
The only hot tub that is still available is the Lay-Z-Spa Vegas model, which is the most expensive in the range.
So you’ll want to keep an eye out in-store if you want to snap up one of the cheaper options.

Perfect for a mini impromptu hot tub party over the weekend, you can pick up the hot tub in your nearest B&Q.
B&Q offers delivery too but it will set you back another £10 and might take three to five days to have the home spa brought to your door.
The compact hot tub fits up to three people and is ideal for shoppers with smaller gardens.
Homebase – CleverSpa Cotswolds Hot Tub
- Price: £350 – buy now
This soft green CleverSpa hot tub is exclusive to Homebase and comes in at the cheaper end of the scale.
It’s not available in Homebase stores so you’ll have to order online – which could involve an additional delivery charge.

The Range does sell cheaper options but they’re all out of stock currently.
If you’re keen to bag a bargain then you can sign up to be updated when the lower price options return to shelves.
Delivery from The Range will cost £9.95, but you can’t use their click and collect option for this item as it’s too big.
Amazon – MSpa Silver Cloud Jacuzzi

A spa experience with your own view[/caption]
We’ve found that this hot tub is another great bargain especially if you’re desperate for some back yard bubbles.
The hot tub from Amazon can arrive on your doorstep can be delivered for free, but you could be waiting a while as it will take between five to seven days before it is dispatched.
But you don’t need to have an Amazon Prime membership to claim the deal which means with this bargain you don’t have to pay through the nose for delivery.
