If you’re after a break in the sun, then Turkey is a brilliant location. Not only is it warm and sunny, it’s still relatively cheap for holidaymakers, so you can make your holiday cash go further. Online companies do holiday packages that combine flights and hotel accommodation which is often cheaper than if you go with travel agents on the high street.

When it comes to what kind of a holiday to book, package deals generally give the best value for money and they’re relatively stress free: your flights, transfers and accommodation are all sorted out in one go so you’re not messing about pricing up and booking all the individual elements of your trip separately. In terms of what kind of package deal to go for, if it’s value for money you’re after then it’s worth looking into all-inclusive deals. Particularly for families, all-inclusive package deals are the least stressful and best value option as they mean you don’t have to worry about saving up lots of spending money once you’ve paid for the package; all your drinks and food are included in the price of the holiday. This option means you don’t have to worry about ordering another beer at the hotel bar or having an extra pudding at the hotel restaurant; you can have as much as you like as you’ve already paid for it!

Of course, what each individual package includes in its all-inclusive deal can vary, so make sure you know exactly what you’re getting for your money before you book. Some deals might include entertainment and gym use for example, and some hotels and resorts have more than one restaurant, so that even if you go all-inclusive you’re not necessarily eating in the same place every night.

Most people can save up throughout the year for a holiday but the initial cost can be daunting, so a good tip is to take advantage of a low deposit scheme, such as the £60 low deposit scheme offered by Jet2holidays. It means you can get something booked now and have plenty of time to save up and get excited. For families with young children, all-inclusive deals are particularly useful as you can really keep a hold of the cost of your holidays and know exactly how much to budget for. It could mean you can afford to stay in a four star hotel like Marmaris’s gorgeous Green Nature Resort & Spa as you know exactly what your budget is and can save accordingly. This resort is next to a huge pine forest, but just a few miles from the coastline of Marmaris. Yes Turkey has it all, and the price is right!

So save up, book a great deal, and have fun!
