Caribbean holidays are now CHEAPER than European breaks – here’s why

LONG-HAUL holidays to the Caribbean are now so cheap they cost less than a seven-night break in Europe.

Destinations such as St Lucia and Barbados – which remain above 30C in the winter months – have bargain package deals that will set you back less than a trip to Greece or Spain.

British Airways’ Black Friday sale has seven nights in St Lucia at a four-star hotel, with breakfast and return flights, for just £799pp.

This is in comparison to their Corfu Black Friday deal, which is £849pp when staying at a five-star hotel with return flights.

Spend just £50 more and you could head to Barbados for seven nights, costing £899pp.

TUI has even cheaper deals – you could spend a week in Barbados this Christmas for just £549pp with return flights.

If you book before the end of the week, this goes down to just £499pp thanks to their Black Friday deal.

And Virgin Holidays has seven nights in Barbados this winter, all-inclusive and with return flights for just £582pp.

This isn’t much more than TUI’s cheapest all-inclusive deals to Greece, which start from £517pp.

TravelSupermarket’s Emma Coulthurst said that more people are looking at the hotter, long-haul holidays this winter too.

She said: “This time last year, the UK was facing limited opportunity to travel. People were finding that they had booked but were having to cancel holidays as the country went into another lockdown and only essential travel was allowed.

“Now, restrictions have relaxed for travel back to the UK with only one lateral flow test required within two days of landing.

“People are dipping their toes back in the holiday waters with a sun holiday rather than a city break as many have not taken a holiday abroad this year or last year.

“So, sun on their faces and a swim in warm seas is what people seem to be craving the most.”

She added that due to the forms and tests still needed for destinations, Brits aren’t opting for the shorter weekend breaks to Europe or the city breaks as much, and wanting to go away for longer to make the most of it.

Vaccinated Brits still need to have a negative Covid test to enter Barbados, but don’t need to quarantine, which is the same for St Lucia.

Here are some other cheap Caribbean holidays to make the most of this winter.
