PACKAGE holidays to the Mediterranean can be found for less than £99 per person – prices not seen by Brits since the 90s.
Bargain deals which include return flights and seven nights at a hotel are now on offer to destinations such as Spain and Croatia as tour operators slash their prices.
Holiday firms have seen profits plummet as thousands of holidays have been cancelled during the pandemic – with an estimated $1.2 trillion loss worldwide across the four months.
However, following the government’s air bridge announcement which ends the UK quarantine as well as the non-essential travel ban, holidays are looking to be back on the cards.
This also means cheap deals, if you’re quick, just after the summer holidays.
Holiday booking website LoveHolidays have some of the biggest bargains if you can travel in September, including:
TravelSupermarket’s Emma Coulthurst said that prices this low to Europe haven’t been seen in more than 20 years.
She told Sun Online Travel: “These are the sort of prices which you sometimes were lucky enough to get last minute at the start of the season in May in the early 90s – you’d go into a travel agent and ask what they had for later that day or the next day.
“The uncertainty over when we would be able to holiday again has meant that many Brits who would normally book a summer holiday a few months before didn’t.
“It means that tour operators and travel agents have lots of unsold holidays from the UK to the Med.
“It would normally be difficult to find a seven night holiday to the Med in August from under £300pp.
“Now they are starting from less than £200pp for a family. For those looking to get away in September, there are sub £150pp package holiday starting prices.”
We’ve rounded up some other great deals you can find in August, all for under £200pp – with seven nights and return flights included.
Cyprus is ending their quarantine restrictions from August 1 while Greece will resume UK flights from next week.
The Maldives is also welcoming tourists once again from July 15.
Brits returning to Spanish coasts for a much-needed break after months of lockdown reckon it is now better than ever – and they feel even safer there than the UK.
