So you’re looking for cheap package holidays? Here are a few tried-and-tested tips and tricks to help you find an unforgettable break that won’t break the bank.

For starters, get online and head to all the major tour operators’ websites. Take a look at The Co-Operative Group for instance. Undoubtedly one of the first things you’ll see are price-led campaigns all over the homepage, with glorious images of exotic beaches and oh-so-tempting pools, bearing huge discounts and special offers. Scroll down the page and you’ll see all manners of deals, ranging from all inclusive and city break discounts to sizzling beach special offers – perfect for bargain hunters!

Some of the prices are pretty impressive, and remember that when you select a package holiday through a major tour operator like The Co-Operative Group, your travel essentials are covered too. That includes return flights, nightly accommodation and a transfer service to and from your hotel, along with the services of a locally-based travel representative.

If however you’re not in the market for cheap package holidays and you prefer to go your own way, check out some of the many scheduled flights on offer across Europe and beyond. You could choose your own flights as part of a DIY holiday to dozens of different destinations, like Spain, the Balearics, Greece or Cyprus, and combine it with your own choice of accommodation. That might be a stay in a guest house, a friendly B&B or perhaps a swish hotel.

You don’t have to stay for the traditional week or fortnight – depending on your flight, you could stay for a budget-friendly 3 or 4 nights, or opt for longer and enjoy a 10 or 20-night stay. Why not stay in different hotels throughout your trip to make the most of your experience?

Whatever you fancy, there are stacks of great holiday bargains out there. It’s just a matter of finding your favourite!
