Everyone deserves a good break and with proper planning, you can have yourself and friends or family jet-setting off to a variety of destinations around the world at great prices which won’t break the bank. If you’re looking for the latest 2015 cheap holiday deals to the Canary Islands, Florida, Turkey or something a bit more exotic like Thailand and the Far East, just take a look at some the options we’ve lined up below.
It’s also worth considering at this stage exactly what kind of cheap holiday deals take your fancy. Are you willing to consider any holiday that may in fact be relatively expensive but available at great value? Or is it that it needs to be cheap as in not cost a lot of money as far as the average Brit is concerned? We think the latter. Rather than ‘cheap’, we like to think good value but pricey holidays are better described as a bargain.
Moving swiftly on, one of the closest destinations for a cheap summer holiday this year (as it always has been given that the Earth doesn’t change all that much) is the southern French coast. The French Riviera or the Cote d’Azur is home to over 120km of stunning coastline and is France’s most popular holiday destination. No frills airline easyJet is a great option for a cheap 2015 holiday deal this year with packages at the 2* Hotel Compte de Nice for 7 nights start from only £260.
Another great destination is Croatia. Yes that’s right, Croatia. These Eastern Bloc countries have come a long way since the 1980s but Western Europeans are still only warming up to the notion that such countries could provide a great holiday experience. Boasting thousands of miles of seafront and more than a thousand islands, Croatia’s coastline, with its pebbly beaches, predictably balmy summer weather and melt-in-your-mouth seafood, is Eastern Europe’s Riviera. The specialist tour operator Balkan Holidays sells a variety of holidays from beach holidays to city breaks to coach and boat tours. A 3* self-catering package on the Dubrovnik Riviera starts from around 400 a person.
This year, 2015, is also set to be a great year for holidaying based on the number of festivals kicking off world wide. For example the world famous Cannes International Film Festival is scheduled for May 13th to May 24th. Or if Mother Russia beckons, the White Nights International Arts Festival takes place in St Petersburg on long summer evenings with about one million people expected to visit. Closer to home, don’t be afraid to play it safe with tried and trusted Spain where the annual Fiesta de San Fermin, immortalised by US novelist Ernest Hemingway in his 1926 classic The Sun Also Rises, involves bulls being chased through the historic heart of Pamplona. Take note however, this experience is not for the faint-hearted.
