Summer holiday prices fall by up to 36%

Written by: Danielle Levy
Tour operators have slashed 2019 summer holiday package prices in the hope of encouraging Brits to book their holidays in January.

Online holiday price comparison site TravelSupermarket, which compares package holidays across 25 providers, has analysed the cost of summer package holidays which depart between 1 May and 21 Oct this year, searched for on their website between 17 December and 2 January. They then compared these searches to the holiday deals that were available last year.

TravelSupermarket found the median price per person for a seven-night summer 2018 package holiday (across all board types and star ratings), which was searched for this time last year, was £50.80 per night in the Algarve. In comparison, a search for the same type of holiday between December 2018 and January 2019 works out at a median price per person, per night of £32.62. This is 36% lower compared to last year.

For one-week overseas summer package holidays available between 1 May and 21 October, TravelSupermarket found the following reductions in the median price of a week-long summer package holiday when compared to last year:

  1. Algarve (Portimao and Alvor) – 36%
  2. Zante/Zakynthos -31%
  3. Costa Brava, Spain (Lloret de Mar) – 28%
  4. Costa del Sol (Torremolinos, Fuengirola and Nerja) – 17%
  5. Majorca – 13%
  6. Costa Dorada (Salou) – 9%
  7. Crete (Malia) – 7%
  8. Corfu (Sidari, Kavos) – 7%
  9. Agadir, Morocco – 5%
