Cheap summer holiday deals to book now including Greece, Spain Turkey and the USA

by Staff

If you are not booking a sunshine holiday today, then you are probably in a very small minority, live in a cave – or just don’t like holidays!

Yes, it’s the British travel industry’s annual ‘Super Saturday’ when millions of us hit the internet or head to our good old high street travel agent experts to nail down that dream summer getaway. And if the recent UK rainpocalypse does not inspire you, then nothing will!



The travel trade always reckons a holiday is one of the last things the British public will give up in difficult financial times. And while there is an element of “well, they would say that wouldn’t they?’’, it seems to be largely true.

What’s more, we work longer hours and have fewer bank holidays than many other countries, so that much-needed break is hard earned. So, where will you book on Sunshine Saturday?

The travel team has unearthed the best deals for long haul, short haul and cruises, so happy holiday hunting! Wherever you go, safe travels and remember to take out insurance as soon as you book.
