• Brits search for top holiday deals this winter

• Thomas Cook offer range of savvy holiday deals the Three Wise Men would have
been proud of

Following the frantic holiday season forget the knowledge of the Three Wise
Men because shoppers across the country are becoming savvier at finding the
best holiday deals . You might be short on gold, frankincense and myrrh but
right now there are excellent holiday bargains waiting to be found.

Leading travel provider Thomas Cook has put together a list of top money
saving tips when it comes to shopping for your next break - so what wisdom do
you need to take on board?

Shop last minute or well in advance

There are two tactics to use when trying to secure the best holiday deal. The
first is to shop well in advance, which means making a booking at least 3
months before you travel.

The second is to snap up last minute deals a matter of weeks or days before
you plan to travel. The biggest perk of booking in advance is greater variety
in your travel options, but be prepared to be beaten on price by last minute
deals. Shoppers can secure extremely cheap deals with last minute packages but
you do sacrifice choice and flexibility.

Travel out of season

In the lead up to winter there is a huge push on final summer sun holidays. By
travelling out of peak season, you're likely to find outstanding savings on a
holiday inMalta , Greece, Spain and Portugal.

In the cooler months, popular Tunisia holiday spots like Dar el Said and
Souani el Adari are still warm enough to escape the chill in Britain. As well
as finding the best deals, travelling away from the peak season also helps to
escape the crowds.

Look for all-inclusive packages

When holiday shopping on a strict budget, all inclusive packages are an
excellent choice. Package holidays incorporate all of the expenses in one
single payment, meaning flights, accommodation, meals and entertainment are
all covered.

Package holidays allow parents to accurately budget for the break and not let
added expenses leave a hole in their savings. Popular package deals include
holidays to Egypt , Kos and Cyprus - so take your pick.
