Top Deals for UK Travellers including Lake Garda, Barbados, Gascony, Tanzania and Reykjavik.

Deal 1: Lazing by the lake

Inghams has sliced a tempting £306 off its Lake Garda holidays for early July and is offering seven nights surrounded by olive groves and cypress tress for £359 per person. This is the ideal location for lazing by the water, strolling along the tree-lined promenades and road-testing Italian dishes in the many restaurants. The deal for the Northern Italy lakeside break is on a half board basis at the three-star Palme Hotel and includes return flights from Gatwick to Verona and resort transfers. Departure is on 11 July. The deal is also available from Birmingham and Newcastle for an extra £29 and £49 respectively.

Deal 2: So cool and SoCo

Bag yourself a Barbados bargain at the three-star SoCo Hotel on the popular South Coast Board Walk with Tropical Sky, which is currently offering seven nights on an all-inclusive basis for £899 per person. That’s a £400 per person saving on regular prices. The Miami Beach style hotel is within a few minutes’ stroll from lots of good restaurants and bars and has a hip, young vibe to it, with each of its 24 rooms offering seaviews over the Caribbean. The deal includes flights from London Gatwick with Virgin Atlantic for departures 2-28 November.

Deal 3: Farmhouse for less

Thanks to a last-minute cancellation, The Gascony Secret is offering a carefully restored, luxury six-bedroom 18th century farmhouse close to Aignan in the Gers in Gascony, south west France, for £560 under its brochure price. Les Deux Etangs, which sleeps up to 14 people and sits within 2.5 acres of land, has an all-weather tennis court, table tennis table, swimming pool and large sunbathing terrace and dining area with amazing views over the countryside. One week’s rental costs £2,300 (or £164 per person) for departures 7 or 14 July.

Deal 4: Tanzania twin getaway

Fancy a twin-centre break under the sizzling African sun? Africa Odyssey has a two-stop Indian Ocean beach escape deal to Tanzania for £2,800 per person, saving £400 each on regular prices. You’ll get seven nights full board at the glamorous Ras Kutani lodges which feature amazing food, billowing drapes around four poster beds, and secluded white sand beaches plus lagoon and coastal rainforest walks. Then you’ll be transferred to Zanzibar’s Ras Nungwi where you will stay five nights on a B&B basis. Ras Nungwi is famous for its great dive school, laid back social life and cracking seafood. The deal includes flights from Heathrow with British Airways. Departures are valid throughout July.

Deal 5: Get hip in Reykjavik

Never been to achingly hip Reykjavik? Now could be the time as low cost carrier Iceland Express has just launched its summer sale. Fly to the Icelandic capital between now and 30 August for as little as £64 one-way (that’s out of Edinburgh). You can also hop across to check out the hip Reykjavik scene from Stansted or Gatwick for £69 one way. Pleasingly (and unusually for a budget carrier) all the prices include taxes, surcharges, seat allocation at check-in, a 20kg bag in the hold and 10kg hand luggage. There is also no extra for flights booked on a debit card.
