As the Easter holidays are fast approaching many families will be looking to book a cheap getaway for some sunshine. This year the Easter holidays will begin on Friday 29 March and will last for two weeks ending on Friday 12 April.

Laura Lindsay, Skyscanner’s Travel Trends Expert, has shared advice on how to get a good deal on travel during busy periods like Easter Weekend. She said the “most straightforward way is to book early” and “another way to get a good fare is by shopping around.”

She added: “This is particularly useful when you are trying to get a flight during a busier time like Easter Weekend. Combining two different airlines or two departure or destination airports could mean a big saving.   

 “Considering alternative departure airports or destinations is also a great way to grab a good deal and discover somewhere new into the bargain. If you’re even more flexible and can travel at different times, then you’re likely to see an even better saving. Skyscanner’s ‘Everywhere’ search and ‘month view’ are all easy ways to compare and contrast fares at a glance.”
