If you need to buy a new cordless vacuum ASAP and only have a budget of £100 to spend, then we can definitely help you decide on a model. It's true: we've reviewed a huge range of vacuum cleaners, ranging from £99 to £999, and it's not always a case that the more expensive the better. With this in mind, you can definitely buy a good-quality cordless vacuum cleaner for less than the £100 mark, whether it's on sale or not.

Whilst we've not (yet) had the chance to test any of the affordable stick vacuums below, we have tested all three of the handheld models we've recommended. Overall, we've been sure to rank all of them based on customer ratings and review. We've also only included vacuums with more than a four-star rating so that you know you're buying quality. Below, we've made sure to note all of the important specifications you should consider when buying a new vacuum, and you can click through to a retailer for a deeper description. In the case that we've reviewed any of these vacuums, you can read our review, too.

Whether your current vacuum is packing up or you're switching from a corded to a cordless model for ease of use, the models below are all brilliant. Otherwise, if you can stretch a little over £100, then see our best vacuums guide for all of our top picks (including robot and upright models). We have a dedicated guide on cordless vacuums at all price tags, too.

Where to shop for a cordless vacuum under £100

Here's where else to shop for an affordable vacuum cleaner, should you still be searching for one to suit your needs.

What is the most affordable type of vacuum?

The most affordable type of vacuum will depend on the brand. The bigger the brand, the more expensive the vacuum. So if you're looking for something under the £100 mark, avoid the big names. Otherwise, upright and cylinder vacuums tend to be a little cheaper than stick vacuums. And although you might be looking for a cordless model, corded ones usually are less expensive. Robot vacuums are normally the most expensive of the lot.

The most affordable vacuum we've reviewed and given more than 4.5 stars is the Vax Blade 4 which comes in at around £166 currently.

Hi! I'm Annie, and I'm the Head Ecommerce Editor at Real Homes. I've been part of the Real Homes team since 2018, when I joined as Deals Editor. Along with covering major sales events — from Black Friday to Amazon Prime Day — I review home must-haves so that you can buy with peace of mind. Mostly focusing on home fragrance and sleep, as well as a few vacuum cleaners, I've tested pretty much every item you can think of that you need in your home. I live on the outskirts of the city in a two-bed apartment with my husband and my pug, Doug. So I am always searching for compact alternatives and ways to save floor space. What about when I am not typing away? Well, you'll find me enjoying an iced coffee (no matter the season) and trying out the latest brunch spots the city has to offer, or booking my next holiday.
