Summer holiday prices fall by up to 36%
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.
