Save HUNDREDS on a package holiday by making one simple switch

This is an easy one – if you’ll consider flying from a different airport to your usual then you could save yourself a huge amount of money – on the exact same holiday.

We’ve tracked down deals on the same day and to the same hotels – the only thing different is the departing airport.

Emma Coulthurst, resident travel expert from holiday price comparison site Travel Supermarket told Sun Online Travel: "These deals are specific to the day, but what they show is that it's worth checking other nearby airports before you book."

Read on for the biggest savings out there on holidays to Ibiza, the Costa Brava, Tenerife, Zante and more.
