Price of foreign holidays plummets as Omicron worries travellers – with 2-week breaks from £345

BRITS wanting to get some sun this Christmas can bag a holiday at a rock bottom price.

Travelling during the festive period usually costs a fortune, but airlines and holiday companies are selling bargain trips due to a reduced demand for travel caused by Omicron.

The new variant of coronavirus has led to travel uncertainty, meaning a lot of Brits aren't confident enough to book a trip away in the coming weeks and months.

But for those of you who are, there are bargains to be had.

The Independent has reported that TUI is selling a two-week holiday in Costa Blanca over Christmas and New Year for £345pp, including flights, luggage, transfer and accommodation.

Flights leave from Cardiff on December 18 and return on January 1, 2022.

If you just fancy one week away over Christmas, Jet2 is offering a seven-night stay in Faro for £191, including flights, luggage and accommodation.

Flights leave from Birmingham on December 19 and return on Boxing Day.

Ryanair has cancelled all flights to and from Morocco until February 1, 2022.

The boss of TUI has warned that his could be the next airline to cancel flights.
