For example, seven nights at the three star plus Grand Hotel in Hurghada is now from only £850 (saving £100) for two people travelling on a bed&breakfast basis. Flights depart Gatwick on 13th May and the price includes transfers, in-flight meals, 20kg luggage allowance, and free late room check-out.

Guaranteed child prices: Families looking for value for money now benefit from guaranteed child prices of only £399 (when sharing a room with two adults) plus a free all-inclusive meal upgrade at all Red Sea Hotels (up to the age of 12) regardless of hotel, board basis or departure date. Single parents save £75 when travelling with at least one child.

For example, a family of four (children two - 12 years) now only pay £2,448 for seven nights' all-inclusive at the five star Makadi Palace Family Star.
