Skytours Late Deals & Last Minute Holidays

Tui Skytours last minute holidays are a great way to save money if you have the flexibility to be able to travel when you want. Late deals prices are like stock market shares and depending on the demand the prices will be adjusted accordingly. So following that basic economic principle try and avoid the busy school holiday dates,

Easter, half term school holidays and Christmas and New Year. Sometimes it is possible to get deals before Christmas that include Christmas day but not New Year so if you want to spend Christmas in the sun at a reasonable price you may have a chance.

Be Flexible – For Greater Savings

Basically when looking for a late deal holiday try and be as flexible as possible with your dates, departure airport and destinations as this will help keep the costs down. You may actually find that some board basis are cheaper than others. Obviously you expect all inclusive to be more expensive than self catering however sometimes you will find that half board late deals can be more expensive than all inclusive. This will all be down to what accommodation they are looking to push.

What Makes the Prices Change?

There are a lot of factors that also have an influence on the prices such as bad weather in the UK especially on the summer will drive the prices up as more people book a holiday abroad to get some sunshine. If you are just looking for a last minute holiday because you could not book early and your priority is not just down to the price you will have more options however it is always nice to get a discount off the cost of the holiday.

Skytours Holidays 2022 Brochure

There are generally two Skytours holidays brochures issued with one covering Summer holidays and the other Winter ones. The Skytours Summer brochure covers from May – October and the Skytours Winter brochure covers from November – April the following year.

Summer V Winter

In the winter the most popular destinations tend to be the ones that offer the best weather prospects. Typically the Canary Islands like Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote & Fuerteventura. Long haul destinations like the Dominican Republic are in demand. In the summer when the weather is generally good around the Mediterranean mainland Spain is in demand. Especially Benidorm on the Costa Blanca and Salou in the Costa Dorada.

Skytours Flights & Holidays from the UK

Skytours flights are generally on the Tui Airways flights as they share the same extensive network of departure points around the airports of the UK. You will generally find the widest range of Skytours destinations featured from London and Manchester however there are lots of other departure point offering flights as well.

Where Can You Fly From?

With Skytours holidays you can fly from London Gatwick, Luton, Stansted, Southend, Norwich, Southampton, Bournemouth, Exeter, Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham, East Midlands, Manchester, Liverpool, Doncaster Sheffield, Leeds Bradford, Humberside, Newcastle, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Belfast airport. If you book direct you will also be able to book your seats on the aircraft and also book a seat upgrade as well.

Getting to Your Skytours Apartment or Hotel

Airport transfers are an optional extra with Skytours as some people either get a taxi or rent a car and drive to their accommodation themselves. If you plan on exploring your holiday destination and are happy to dive then this will enable you to explore with greater freedom and possibly save money as well. If you were to do a number of excursions for a family of four you could find that is is much cheaper to hire a car.

Look Before You Book Your Skytours Holiday

As mentioned before each property is unique as Skytours offer accommodation in multiple countries with many different hotel companies. Please take a moment to check and see what your hotel or self catering apartment offers before you finally book your holiday. You can do this by checking the description in a Skytours brochure however it is always best to check online on the official Tui website Don't go to the hotel's own web page either as it could offer something different. This is not a negative point as you will have probably benefited from a better room rate by booking through Tui and Skytours using their massive buying power.
