Last Minute Holiday Deals From The Marian Finucane Show

Looking for last minute holiday deals? Check out my top choices that I discussed with Marian Finucane.

This summer is quite surprising in terms of last minute holidays as there is still lots of availability. Usually in July we see accommodation shortages in Spain and Portugal but that is not the case this year. That combined with extra capacity with Ryanair and Aer Lingus means that for anyone hoping to secure a last minute deal – you are in luck!

Spain, Portugal, Sicily.

Sunway Holidays in particular have lots of availability in July and August and because they are a package holiday company, they have paid for accommodation in advance and are able to offer package deals at low prices. Next weekend, the 15th of July you can go to the Canary Islands and Sicily for €399 for 1 week, including checked baggage and transfers. When you think that a checked bag to the Canary Islands is normally €110, it is exceptional value to have everything included in the price.  Click here for more details. They have some great family prices too. A  week in the Algarve is €1576 on the 15th of July in the popular Estrella do Vau apartments and you can go to the family island of Menorca from €1676 on the 23rd of July. Both  prices are based on 2 adults and 2 children and include transfers and baggage. Click here for more details.

Click&Go are also promoting last minute deals and are offering families the chance to pay 50% now and the remainder 2-4 weeks before departure. Usually with last minute holidays, you have to pay the full amount at the time of booking so this will help families looking to go in August who can pay half now and half when they get paid at the end of July.  They are offering deals to Salou in July and August, one of this years top family destinations. Prices for 2 adults and 2 children is €2338 in the popular four star Regina Gran hotel including breakfast and evening meal. This departs the 21st of July and includes flights and transfers.

Some of the UK travel giants have joined the Irish market this year. In particular Teletext holidays, who have been selling holidays for over 25 years. Their prices are very competitive and they have a wide selection of accommodation available so their website is definitely worth checking out.  I found a great deal to the Algarve departing the 20th of July. Price for 2 adults and 2 children is €1516 including flights and accommodation in the Eirasol apartments, Albufeira. You can add on transfers and checked baggage if required.
