If you’re over winter and dreaming of sun, sand and surf instead, now’s the time to start planning your perfect summer holiday. Not only will you have something to look forward to in your diary, but there are loads of summer special offers on right now. Whether you want to try out a holiday park in the south of France, a self-catering apartment by the sea or a quiet cottage closer to home, we’ll help you save some pennies so you can spend the trip having fun instead of budgeting.

*Below holidays based on 2 adults and 2 children staying 7 nights in August, departing from London.

£3,000 to spend

Easyjet Holidays are offering loads of summer deals at top beach destinations like Portugal, so why not book now? Jet off to Algarve and forget about the dreary weather back home for a bit at the gorgeous Vilanova Resort. It’s 700 metres from the Praia da Oura beach and right behind the action of Albufeira’s entertainment area with restaurants, bars, shops, and nightlife, plus the resort has a massive pool that the kids will love. This holiday includes flights, accommodation and transfers, but still comes in well under budget. Grand total: £2,696.82 (after our £40 summer holidays code)

£2,500 to spend

Think the Côte D’Azur is out of your budget? With Al Fresco Holidays, you can do it for under £2,500. Les Prairies de la Mer holiday park is perfectly situated with access to the beach, and so many activities you’d never be able to get to them all. It’s also close to Port Grimaud and a short boat ride to St. Tropez. Book a Vivaldi Riviera 3 bedroom mobile home for £1,436.80 after our exclusive £50 off August holidays code, then grab a flight from Monarch Flights for £389.92. It’s about an hour and 30 minutes from the airport, so you’ll need a transfer. Our pick: a private transfer from the airport to the holiday park from Resorthoppa. You’ll pay £477.21 after our 15% off code. Grand total: £2,303.93

£1,500 to spend

Over at lowcostholidays.com, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to a summer holiday. Our pick: Majorca! Spain is one of the top holiday destinations for a reason, and Majorca is the perfect place to get away and soak up some rays without emptying your bank account. You can book a one-bedroom apartment with a balcony terrace at beautiful Hotel Blue Sea Gran Playa, which has the added bonus of an entertainment program with activities and shows for both adults and kids. The holiday also includes flights to Majorca (baggage included), but you’ll spend well under your £1,500 budget. Grand total: £1,243.03 (after our £40 off summer holidays code)

Under £1,000 to spend

You can still enjoy the sea, but keep your holiday closer to home (and save a good bit of money as well). Coast & Country Cottages are offering early summer specials, with select cottages up to £500 off, so it’s well worth it to hire a cottage and sit back and relax. Our pick: Southview in Blackawton, Dartmouth. This property is baby-friendly, so perfect for young families, and is a short five miles from Dartmouth, and just a five-minute drive from the beach. Grand total: £802 for a week (31 July – 7 Aug)
