5 sites to find the best holiday deals 2022

Booking.com | Book here

Booking.com is arguably the best known holiday booking website in the UK, allowing users to search by hotel or by city, and often offering a 'book now pay later' deal, where you'll pay the hotel on arrival.

Sometimes, hotels booked through Booking.com offer free cancellation up to a week before, too, giving you even more flexibility.

Plus, if you book before 30th September, you can take advantage of lots of deals with 15% off or more.

The website's destinations are endless, including Europe, the Middle East, South Africa and many other sought-after holiday locations.

Lastminute.com | Book here

If you don't want to spend hours trawling through deals or you need a last-minute getaway, lastminute.com has everything from beach holidays to spa breaks, as well as tickets for days out and experiences.

Make sure to keep checking back on the ‘Today’s top travel deals' tab, as these change daily and include getaways with the biggest savings and lowest prices.
