Fare Finder: January 2018


We all know that finding and booking flights to your favourite destinations without breaking the bank isn’t easy, so here is a guide that gives you the opportunity to take advantage of the best value air fares. This month our top picks focus on flights that will see you jetting off to grab some winter sun!



The largest island in the Canaries is popular all year round with holidaymakers looking to get some sunshine. The popular resorts of Costa Adeje and Playa de las Americas offer beaches during the day, and vibrant night life when the sun goes down. Tenerife is also home to Siam Park an it’s infamous Tower of Power! Recently voted the worlds best water park on TripAdvisor, it is a must visit for any adrenaline junkie out there! Temperatures this time of year normally hover around the 21C mark, so be sure to pack a light fleece for the evenings.

London Gatwick offer some of the cheapest flights flying with Thomson, TUI as they are now known. Anyone considering spending a fortnight on the island can get there for £69 return. This fare does not include baggage, but with a 20kg case priced at just £46, it won’t break the bank. Visit the TUI site here to book.

dubai, united arab emirates:

There is very little that needs to be said about this destination. With it’s golden sandy beaches, lavish shopping malls and luxurious hotels; this city really is a must visit. If you have a head for heights, be sure to visit the Burj Khalifa which stands at some 830 metres tall. Offering stunning views of Dubai from it’s observation deck, on a clear day it is even possible to see Iran which lies on the other side of the Persian Gulf. Dubai at this time of the year will not see temperatures hit the blistering heights of the summer, but anyone travelling can expect the mercury to be in the high 20s.

London Heathrow is the departure point for the these flights. Flying economy with Emirates on their Airbus A380 aircraft, passengers will be able to experience the world class service offered on board by the Dubai based airline. Return tickets start from just £323pp which includes a very generous 30kgs baggage allowance. You can be taken to the Emirates website by following this link.

marsa alam, egypt:

Marsa Alam is on Egypt’s Red Sea coast. It is renowned world over for it’s diving locations. The resort is quieter than its neighbours Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh, meaning a week of pure relaxation in the sun (If diving isn’t your cup of tea) is just a 5 and a half hour flight away. Diving in these waters can be arranged through one of the many instructors that work in the resort, they will give you the opportunity to see Dolphins, schools of Hammerhead Sharks and even the peculiar looking Dugong! Much like Dubai, temperatures will be on average above 24C.


Flights to Marsa Alam can be found via Thomas Cook Airlines as can package holidays to the resort. Birmingham Airport offers the cheapest flights to the Egyptian resort with return tickets starting at £136 per person. Your journey to Marsa Alam starts by booking your flights here.

Marsa Alam has some of the worlds best waters for diving

As holiday destinations go, Cancun is one of the best. Whether it’s relaxing by the pool with a novel, topping up your tan on your hotel’s private beach or visiting the world famous Chichen Itza, there is something for everyone to do. You can rest assured that the words “I’m bored” won’t be spoken during your time here. At night be sure to tuck into some delicious local delicacies before heading to party the night away in the Coco Bongo nightclub. Only if you’re over the age of 18 though, because going to night clubs under the age of 18 is illegal and wrong and I totally have never done it before, like ever. (Not fooling anyone am I?).

TUI once again are offering fantastic value for this flight. Manchester to Cancun return is £229 per person, this price does not include luggage but TUI currently have some promotions regarding baggage so it’s definitely worth checking them out. If the sound of Cancun wasn’t selling it to you enough, how does flying on their Dreamliner? On board you’ll find complimentary drinks and an in flight meal waiting for you. Love the sound of Mexico? Follow the link to book your getaway.

The ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza is a UNESCO World Heritage Site
