The Lowcost Travel Group is claiming it is cheaper to go on an all-inclusive holiday in the Mediterranean than stay in ‘rip-off Britain’ this Christmas.
The company claims holidaymakers can save £201 by booking an all-inclusive package in Spain, Tenerife, Turkey or Egypt rather than staying at home during the downturn.
With the price of turkeys up to £70 a bird, the bed bank has calculated staying in Britain could cost £485 per person, based on a couple, for food, presents, decorations, a tree, alcohol and household bills. A three-star all-inclusive break departing December 21 for seven nights in La Tahona Gardens in Caleta de Fuste, Fuerteventura, starts at £284.
Chief executive Paul Evans added: “We’re freezing as many prices as possible to encourage more people to get out of Britain this Christmas.”
