Planning an Easter getaway? Check out these deals…

Written by: Danielle Levy
If you are planning a last-minute Easter holiday, the good news is there are plenty of deals to be found across short and mid-haul locations.

British holidaymakers who are hoping to organise an Easter city break should look no further than Warsaw or Vienna, according to travel search engine KAYAK.

Flights to these two continental European cities have seen the biggest drop in prices year-on-year, with an average return flight now 24% cheaper in comparison to 2018.

The price for a return flight to Warsaw currently costs £105 during Easter 2019, which compares to £139 over the same period last year. For Vienna, the price of a return flight has dropped to £150 from £196.

Wine lovers will also be happy to hear that return flights to Porto and Bordeaux have dropped 18% and 16% respectively.

Here’s a full list of flight price reductions:

Hotel deals

Prices for hotels have also been slashed during the Easter break, according to KAYAK’s research. Prices for Agadir in Morocco are down 45% year-on-year to an average of £42 per night in three and four star hotels.

There are also deals to be found in Tenerife and Lanzarote, where hotel prices are 40% and 29% lower in comparison to last year.

Here’s more detail on the deals available abroad and closer to home…

John-Lee Saez, managing director of KAYAK Europe, said: “With Easter falling later in the year, there’s still time to find a great deal to make the most of the long weekend. Many travellers book cheap flights but then get caught out with high-season accommodation costs, so we’ve looked into our data to share inspiration for hotels too.”
