Prices start from just £306*, which covers return flights, luggage allowance, hotel accommodation, and transfers. With a range of hotels from 2 to 5 stars, there’s something to suit every budget and preference.

Once you arrive, the savings continue. Bulgaria is known for its low local prices, allowing your holiday budget to stretch even further. A delicious three-course meal at a local restaurant is typically about £15, with a bottle of local wine costing under £5 and a local beer around £1.50!

There’s also plenty to do. Sunny Beach, the main resort, offers two aqua parks, numerous water sports, and even a Llama park for some family fun.

For history enthusiasts, a short boat ride across the bay brings you to Nessebar, a beautiful town that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, perfect for a day of exploration.
