According to the holiday price comparison site TravelSupermarket, holidays to the Costa Dorada have also fallen 27 percent, Fuerteventura by a fifth and trips to the Costa Del Sol has been slashed by 15 per cent.
Holidays to the Istrian Riviera in Croatia have also fallen by 20 per cent, while trips to the Algarve are down by 14 per cent.
On the flip side, the average package holiday price has risen to the likes of Malta (up 29 per cent) and Dubai (up 24 per cent).
Emma Coulthurst from the holiday price comparison site says the snakes and ladder price changes can be attributed to travel restrictions.
She said: “The cost and administration surrounding testing is still proving a major barrier to people travelling.
“With fewer people holidaying compared with pre-pandemic, for those who take the plunge, there are holidays available from the UK to the likes of the Spanish Costas in September and October from under £150pp for seven nights.
“However, with a restricted number of destinations to choose from – with the likes of Cancun, the Dominican Republic and Turkey on the red list and the likes of the U.S. currently out of bounds for Brits for holidays – prices have increased to Malta and to the UAE where good weather is pretty much guaranteed at this time of year”.
Travel companies are expecting a surge in interest for late summer and October, including October half term from families, if the government announces it is scrapping PCR tests for vaccinated Brits and children tomorrow.
