Top October Offers From €297 – 4 Holidays, Hand Picked With Great Reviews!

Looking to getaway before the winter creeps in? I have hand picked my top October offers from the Click&Go website with prices from €297 including flights, accommodation and transfers.

 

October is a great time to get away. The dark evenings are creeping in at home and the weather is getting cooler. Keep those sandals out for a little longer and get the last of the Summer sunshine with these great October offers. Click&Go’s new special offer search is great. You can search by  ANY sun destination, ANY city break destination or search by date, within 7 days, 14 days, a month etc. They even have the option to search any two week period from now until the end of March! They have a wide selection of special offers available but I hand picked four that I thought were particularly good value. All holidays include flights, transfers and accommodation and are based on 2 sharing 🙂

 

Algarve –  4* Estrela do Vau Apartments, €297!

october offers

Short flights from Ireland, some of Europe’s best beaches, and some terrific restaurants, it’s not surprising the Algarve is one of our favourite holiday destinations.  I found this great deal to the pretty resort of Praia do Vau. It’s ideal location offers the advantage of being a quiet resort, but within easy access to the picturesque town of Alvor and the bustling resort of Praia da Rocha. There are numerous restaurants and bars to choose from and of course it is home to some of the best beaches in the Algarve. If you like shopping, nearby Portimao offers some of the best shops in the Algarve, there are some excellent boutiques as well as H&M, Mango and even a Primark store! When you are shopped out, enjoy a drink at the impressive marina. Home to super yachts and trendy eateries, this is the perfect place to chill out and watch the world go by. 

You will be staying in the 4* Estrela do Vau apartments.  Situated only 600 meters to the beach, with an indoor and outdoor pool, as well as a wellness centre, gym and jacuzzi,  it is not surprising this complex receives great reviews on tripadvisor. Fly from Dublin on the 18th of October with Aer Lingus and enjoy a seven night stay for only €297 per person, based on 2 sharing or only €235 based on 4 sharing. Price includes flights, transfers and a roomy 2 bedroom apartment!

Gran Canaria – 3* Eo Club Vistaflor Apartments, €369!

october offers

For guaranteed sunshine, it is hard to beat the Canary Islands. I like the area of Maspalomas as it is close to the lively resort of Playa del Ingles and the upmarket resort of Meloneras, so it really offers the best of both worlds.  Complete with five star hotels, stylish shops and trendy bars Melonares is perfect for an afternoon’s shopping or some al fresco dining. Maspalomas is also home to the magnificent sand dunes, which have been declared a nature reserve and cover some 400 hectares.

I found a great deal staying in the Eo Club Visaflor apartments.

Corfu is one of my favourite Greek islands. It has stunning scenery, a laid back atmosphere and amazing food! Each resort is better than the next, with many hideaways offering picture perfect cove beaches – it is an island that is just begging to be explored. The cost of living is so low, dining out is excellent value for money and the welcome you receive will have you wanting to come back for more.   Corfu town with its impressive fortress, has some excellent shopping and is a great place for an evening stroll. For more information on Corfu, read my blog by clicking here.

I found a great deal to the 4* Ariti Grand Hotel which is located in the pretty town of Kanoni, only four kilometres from Corfu town. With stunning sea views and a relaxed atmosphere, you also have the choice of popping into Corfu town at a moments notice. This hotel receives great reviews on tripadvisor and is great value for a October break away. Fly from Dublin with Aer Lingus on the 7th of October and enjoy a seven night stay for only €429 on a bed & breakfast basis. Upgrade to half board for an extra €45 per person! Price includes flights, airport transfers and hotel accommodation.

Last Minute Holiday Deals From The Marian Finucane Show

Radio-Show-Feature-RTE-1

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.

last minute holiday deals

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. Click here for more details. They also have an all-inclusive deal in the Villamarina Club from €2554 on the 4th of August, based on 2 adults and 2 children. Click here for more details

last minute holiday deals

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. Click here for more details.

Check out this amazing deal to Rhodes at the end of May! Enjoy a one week package deal in a highly rated apartment for only €375!

Rhodes probably has more to offer than any of the other Greek islands. Not only is it one of the largest islands but it has a UNESCO world heritage site as it’s capital! Wandering around the Colossus of Rhodes is like stepping into a fairy tale, but once you step outside the old city walls, you will find a modern town, full of designer shops and trendy waterfront cafés. The hill top town of Lindos is another ‘must see’. Complete with whitewashed buildings and winding alley ways, it is a photographers dream. There are also quieter resorts like Lardos and Pefkos as well as the lively resort of Faliraki. If all of this isn’t enough, why not try some Greek island hopping to some of the neighbouring islands.

 The Travel Expert's deal to Rhodes

Fly from Dublin on the 24th of May and spend seven nights in the Cosmos Maris studios in Lardos for €375 per person. Ranked number 1 on tripadvisor and awarded a certificate of excellence, this is sure to please. The icing on the cake – there are no hidden extras!
