TURKEY remains not just a safe travel destination for UK tourists, but also one of the most popular holiday hotspots for autumn.
As Spain, Portugal and France are all added to the UK’s quarantine list, Turkey remains one of the few locations to stay open – and deals are even cheaper than ever.
According to TravelSupermarket, the most popular searches for holidays later this year are to the Antalya region in Turkey, followed by resorts outside of Dalaman such as Marmaris and Oludeniz.
Data from September 8 to September 15 found that 30 per cent of all package holiday searches on the website were for Turkey – compared to just eight per cent last year.
The prices have dropped too – a seven-night package holiday is 19% cheaper compared to last year.
Many searches were also for holidays in upcoming weeks as Brits opt for last minute trips this year, to avoid being caught out by quarantine rules being enforced at short notice.
TUI, Jet2 and easyJet are all offering bargain holidays for September and October, with trips from £170 each, and all-inclusive holidays for less than £400 each.
