LONDON, October 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

• Brits seek affordable holiday destinations as finances continue to be strained

• Destinations in Europe and further abroad continue to be popular

Thomas Cook offersa great selection of cheap holidays  for budget travellers

When it comes to choosing cheap holidays there are many different factors that come into play

Although these days the length of the journey does come into play when it comes to the cost of a holiday - there are some great long haul deals available from Thomas Cook that mean you can make a trip of a lifetime on a limited budget.

European destinations remain a popular option, typically boasting shorter flight times and minimal jet lag, whilst other long-haul destinations benefit from reduced fares which are attractive to many holidaymakers.


All inclusive Turkey holidays are a fantastic option for the money-conscious. The long stretches of coastlines along both the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas are what has made the country such a popular destination for sun-seekers. Resorts such as Antalya offer the very best sandy beaches and modern 'Beach Park' attractions. Belek for instance is renowned for having perfectly white sand beaches framed by clear blue waters and surrounded by spectacular pine forests.


Holidays to Tunisia from reputable tour operators such as Thomas Cook offers great choices for families who are looking for a little peace and quiet. Manzil Tmim is one such small town resort and is a great choice for those looking to find top class beaches away from the crowds and far from the beaten track, with superb, unspoilt beaches at Sousse and Hammamet - both popular places to visit.


If you're looking for guaranteed good weather, the sunshine record of all the Greek islands is sure to attract your attention.

Rhodes is one of the most popular holiday destinations of all the Mediterranean islands - and for good reason. Its beaches have some of the highest quality assurance marks, being the cleanest in Europe. As a result the island has a great reputation for fantastic snorkelling, scuba diving and other water sports.
