Plenty of us love the freedom of browsing for the most convenient flights and then for the perfect little hotel. However, sometimes it’s nice to save on time, faff and money by booking a package holiday – and thanks to a new ranking, we now know exactly where to go for the cheapest package trips across Europe.

The experts at Which? Travel have analysed over 4,500 holidays that are still available to book for this summer, and compiled a list of the ten cheapest destinations offering a package deal. 

And the best value deals might not be where you’d expect. Places such as Bulgaria and Türkiye have garnered quite the budget-friendly rep, but classic holiday hot spots such as Greece, Spain and Italy actually boast some of the cheapest options for 2024. 

Claiming the top spot is Kalymnos, a lesser-known Dodecanese island in Greece characterised by secluded little coves and ridiculously blue waters. The cheapest holiday was £794 per person, but the average here is £847 (€987.50). Given it’s around a 40-minute boat ride from Kos, that’s a pretty good deal. 

In fourth place, it’s the Costa Brava in Spain – we know, we’re shocked too. The gorgeous stretch of coast just north of Barcelona has some cracking beaches, and the package holiday price here is around £952 (€1,110) per person. 

But the biggest and maybe most pleasant surprise of all is that the Amalfi Coast has made the top 10, in spot number six. At around £977 (€1,139), this typically expensive region actually boasts a couple of low-key resorts such as Minori and Maiori, which are great options for a cheaper getaway. Whats more, the region will soon be getting an airport, finally!

These are the 10 cheapest European package holiday destinations, according to Which? Travel

  1. Kalymnos, Greece (£847, €987.50)
  2. Thassos, Greece (£862, €1,005)
  3. Lefkada, Greece (£935, €1,090)
  4. Costa Brava, Spain (£952, €1,110)
  5. Venetian Riviera, Italy (£965, €1,125)
  6. Amalfi Coast, Italy (£977, €1,139)
  7. Skopelos, Greece (£985, €1,148)
  8. Costa de la Luz, Spain (£994, €1,159)
  9. Campania, Italy (£998, €1,164)
  10. Malta (£1,006, €1,173)
