Turkey, Bulgaria and Spain: The best value 2023 holiday destinations (2023)

Everyone deserves a holiday, but when expenses pile up it can be hard to imagine a getaway on those sun-soaked shores.

However, by choosing your destination carefully, opting for package holidays and taking advantage of great deals, you could be sunning yourself by the pool sooner than you think.

Jet2holidays have loads of really clever ways to save on your summer holiday – here are some ideas!

With a fantastic collection of resorts scattered across Europe, Jet2holidays gives you an incredible choice when planning that great-value break.

Find a budget villa on the sunny Costa del Sol or an all-inclusive sanctuary on Bulgaria's lesser-known Black Sea coast. From winter sun in the Canaries to amazing offers on Turkey's Turquoise Coast, there's a whole world to explore.

How to secure great savings

When you book with Jet2holidays, there are plenty of ways to save.

Once you’ve chosen your dream destination and hotel, Jet2holidays will wrap this up with return flights and transfers to make your own personalised package holiday. You'll even get a generous 22kg baggage included, to make your journey hassle-free.

Keep the costs down by travelling at the beginning or end of the season, when plenty of European destinations still enjoy great weather and offer great value for money.

Whether you've opted for a budget-friendly two-star stay or a splash of five-star glamour, there's often more choice of accommodation outside of peak times.

Opt for an all-inclusive getaway to keep costs in resort down during your stay, or consider a self-catering apartment and shop locally, which can often be more affordable than at home.

And remember, if you’re travelling with the children, see if you can snag a Free Child Place†! How does it work? When two full-paying passengers book a room, one child can holiday for no extra cost. Just use Jet2holidays’ Free Child Place Finder† to search for an eligible holiday.’
