Package holidays to Corfu, Bulgaria and the Costa Brava offer the best value for those travelling in the next couple of months, data analysis released today reveals.

Kavos in Corfu is the cheapest destination for two adults sharing, with a median price per night of £39.29 in September and October, according to holiday comparison website TravelSupermarket.

Lloret de Mar on the Costa Brava is next at £42.80, followed by Sidari, Corfu (£43.78) Varna, Bulgaria (£48.71) and Malia, Greece (£49.86).

Year-on-year increases in searches for couples’ holidays for areas of Spain, Croatia, the US, and Turkey have been recorded.

Lloret de Mar takes the top spot with a rise of 274% followed by Split in Croatia and Miami. The Turkish resorts of Antalya, Marmaris and Bodrum take three places within the top 20.

Emma Grimster, spokeswoman from TravelSupermarket, said: “Summer 2018 saw a revival in the number of people returning to Turkey, while recent falls in the lira have seen it’s popularity continue to grow.”

She added: “With the travel industry as a whole feeling the impact of the World Cup, as well as a hotter than average summer this year, providers are keen to keep prices as competitive as possible to help encourage post-peak season bookings.

“September and October are great months to go on holidays as resort crowds’ calm and climates remain very pleasant across many European resorts.

“Resorts in Corfu appear twice in our top 10 with holidays to the island offering great value from just £207pp for a package deal including flights and accommodation.

“However, when thinking about the cost of living once in resort, it is the Bulgarian resorts of Varna and Sunny Beach that could offer the best overall value for money, with the cost of eating out, etc. much cheaper than in other Eurozone countries.
“Likewise, two Turkish resorts make the top 10 – Icmeler and Alanya – with the recent drops in the value of the lira, the country as a whole has become even better value for money for British holidaymakers.”
