If you're planning on a holiday to Menorca, Majorca, Formentera or Ibiza, you can go with a lot of different tour operators. Whether you're planning on visiting all four places during one break or if you're thinking of spending a fortnight in one place, you'll want to get the very best deal on your break. You can check out comparison sites, book direct with an airline and a hotel or check out tour operators. There are advantages and disadvantages to each approach.
TUI is currently the number one tour operator in the UK. They took that spot from Thomas Cook long before they began to experience the financial difficulties that ultimately led to receivership in September 2019. You'll be able to book your trip to any of the four islands in the Mediterranean Sea off the east coast of Spain with them. Their site is clear and easy to use and you can expect to be shown the sort of discount you're saving by booking online.
You'll need to be over 40 years old to have an idea of where Teletext Holidays originated. But let's skip the nostalgia and concentrate on what they have to offer. Pick all-inclusive or cheap holidays or last-minute to get the best deals on offer or run a quick search on Menorca, Majorca, Formentera or Ibiza and you'll get a list of the best deals. One of the best things about the site is the blogs section. Check out blogs about the destination you're heading to and you'll get some handy hints before you part with your money.
We think that First Choice really is the second or third choice tour operator but they offer some great deals. As a subsidiary of TUI Group, they're never going to be allowed to trouble their parent company and their site is easy to use. It's colourful and clear and gives lots of information about the Mediterranean islands you're looking to travel to. You can even get some ideas about which beaches to visit. The "Similar Destinations" section at the foot of the search results offers clear alternatives if your first-choice destination is too expensive.
As most holidaymakers know, Saga aims at the over 50s market. Their cruises almost exclusively cater to a mature market but don't discount them when you're looking for a holiday to the Med. Their site gives users information on their holiday destination's culture, including a breakdown of the place's gastronomic delights and its citizen's attitude to important subjects like art and religion so you'll know what to expect. Currency and passport/visa information is also clearly set out on the site.
