The recent collapse of travel agent Holidays 4U has left a large number of Brits needing to rebook their holidays for August at the very last minute.
Some operators, such as Cosmos and Avro Flights, have boosted their capacity on flights to Turkey to accommodate the boost in demand for holidays to the region. However, thanks to the timing of the tour operator’s decline, many of those booking holidays to Turkey have found higher prices than when they originally booked.
While there are still deals to be had on cheap holidays to Turkey, holidaymakers are also being encouraged to look at alternative destinations. Sharm el Sheikh holidays are a great option for couples and families looking for a large and lively resort with a good range of options for accommodation and eating out. The beaches are a major draw for many, along with the diving opportunities among the Red Sea’s coral reefs and shallow banks. Even those not wanting for the full scuba experience, snorkeling offers a cheap and easy glimpse into the underwater world.
There are also some great deals still to be found on holidays to Lanzarote, including resorts such as Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca. Playa Blanca’s upmarket marina area provides visitors with some top quality restaurants, and there are a wide range of accommodation options to suit every budget.
Good deals on Algarve holidays also can be found, with the popular Portuguese region offering the best weather in the country along with plentiful beaches, fine wines and local cuisine, plus some of Europe’s most beautiful golf courses.
