And if you want to properly relax without the stresses of self-catering or footing the bill on some expensive meals out, all-inclusive is the way to go.

Worries about safety in Tunisia, Egypt and Turkey over the last four years mean that Brits opted for holidays in countries like Spain and Greece instead.

But bargain basement prices to attract holidaymakers mean that Turkey is now bouncing back – with a 100 per cent increase on bookings this summer.

Even big name brands like Thomas Cook, EasyJet and TUI are offering eye-wateringly low rates for all-inclusive holidays in a bookings battle against the Western Mediterranean countries.

For example, Brits can book a seven night stay including flights from just £180pp in Dalaman, and a week in Bodrum including flights for just £244.
