Flights from the UK are on average 8% cheaper this summer than last year, according to Opodo.co.uk

– and this saving increases on average by 18% when booking to one of the top ten most popular holiday destinations, with passengers making the biggest saving (33%) when flying to Faro in Portugal.

Other countries with the biggest savings include Dublin (28%), with flights costing an average of £57 over the summer.

For Brits seeking guaranteed sun, flights to Alicante are at their cheapest (£87) the week commencing August 28 – ideal for families looking to bag a bargain during the last week of the school summer holidays.

New York is the only non-European city to enter the top ten this year; despite this, Brits are starting to venture further afield, with a 292% increase in passengers flying from the UK to Bali and a 195% increase in travel to Florida.

The company’s travel expert, Lukas Balter, said: “The uncertainty of Brexit and the impact this has had on the value of the pound has caused concern for many Brits, especially when it comes to holidays abroad.

“The fact that flight prices have dropped across the board is great news for the British public as it offsets this worry, meaning people are able to continue booking holidays and enjoying themselves on sunnier shores.”
