Travel Deals for Summer

Now is the perfect time to take advantage of some great travel deals - it's never been easier to pick up a last minute deal to an exotic, far flung location, or stay closer to home with a European break.

Holiday deals - where to go

Nowadays it's easy to find great deals on a whole range of holidays, whether you decide to book a package deal or organise your holiday yourself.

Popular family destinations this summer include Greece, Turkey and Egypt, but you don't necessarily have to stick to the most popular resorts. Why not explore off the beaten track and stay in some of the quieter villages close to bustling towns?

Pefkos in Rhodes has grown in popularity over the past few years, but retains its Greek charm, set just a stone's throw from the pretty village of Lindos, with its whitewashed houses.

Or why not head a little further afield and book a last minute escape to Dubai? You're guaranteed sunshine, world-class shopping and entertainment to suit all ages in this destination that's no longer reserved for the wealthy!

For those looking for a break that's filled with plenty to see and do, a summer city break is the ideal choice. You could head for Paris or Rome, but there are plenty of other options too.

Why not check out some up and coming destinations such as Croatia, Iceland or even Venice, if you're looking for a little romance? City breaks don't have to be in Europe - Cape Town in South Africa is an increasingly popular destination for city break lovers from across the globe!

Travel insurance – get a great deal

Last minute summer deals are the perfect excuse for an escape, whether you're taking the whole family or even jetting off on a city break by yourself.

Always make sure you have adequate travel insurance in place to cover you - with single trip cover starting from around £5 for a comprehensive policy, there's no excuse this summer.

A mid-summer escape is a great way to have a break from work this year - so why not book a couple of weeks on a sunny beach in Spain or an activity holiday in France, if you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary.

Many tour operators and travel companies offer great last minute deals at this time of year and you could even find deals for autumn coming down in price as the summer nears an end.

Prices for flights to exotic destinations such as Thailand and the Far East are slashed, so if you're quick you could pick up a bargain.

Imagine booking a week in China for not much more than a package holiday in Europe.
