The latest Thomas Cook Holidays early booking extravaganza promises huge savings for holidays that depart in summer 2013 (package holiday companies define summer holidays as June, July, August, September and October).
What we like about this Thomas Cook deal on summer holidays 2013, is that there are a huge number of holidays discounted – that’s holidays from all their large number of UK departure airports to a whole host of sunshine destinations. Turkey, Greece Egypt and Spain are all included in the sale as well as some longhaul specials such as Florida, Mexico and Cuba and Dom Rep.
The cheapest package deal we found was to Corfu and that was a self catering offer in May. The cheapest all inclusive holidays were (as usual!) to Turkey. Looking at the longhaul deals, there isn’t such a large price difference between The Med and The Caribbean when looking at early booking deals, and anyone that has been all inclusive in The Caribbean will tell you what a step -up it is in terms of what is on offer. Worth a thought.

2) Look at the final price – Try to ignore the “savings” and before the discount prices, just look at the total cost of the booking and ask yourself if it represents good value for some quality time in the sunshine.
3) But compare like with like – All Inclusive holidays are more popular than ever. It’s easy to see why, you get more control of the holiday travel budget with no nasty surprises. There is also the big convenience factor – especially for families with young kids. Before you book though, it’s important to know what’s included – and what isn’t.
4) Money Saving Debate – Thought about a staycation? One of our members puts it like this. “A two grand fortnights holiday that stays on the shelf could be spent at home to the tune of 150 quid a day… Think how much fun you could have with that in the local area if you stayed at your own home“.
