GOING on holiday is all about over-indulging in sun, snacks and sangria, which often leaves us with a gaping hole in the bank account.

But all-inclusive vacations don’t have to be expensive – there is a way to have a week’s holiday for less than £300 per person this summer.

The holiday price comparison site, TravelSupermarket.com has worked out which holiday hot spots offer the best value all-inclusive deals, despite the plunging value of the pound over the last 12 months.

Many Brits are protecting themselves against volatile exchange rates this summer by booking holidays where food and drink is paid for upfront – and in some cases, going all-inclusive is only a matter of around £4-10 extra a day.

For example, comparing prices across the market in Rhodes, Greece, you can self-cater in June or September from £205 per person for a week or go all-inclusive from £254 per person – £7 extra per day.

According to the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA), one in four families want an all-inclusive package this year compared to less than one in five last year.

With Tunisia and direct flights to Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt currently ruled out, Brits are seeking alternative good-value destinations, so where can you go to get the best bang for your buck?

Holiday prices are really low in many tourist spots this year, particularly in Eastern Med resorts like Turkey, Mainland Greece and the Greek Islands, as resorts compete to attract British tourists back.

Alanya in Turkey from £180 per person

Turkey is offering the very best prices this summer, with all-inclusive 3* or above from as little as £180 per person for a week.

Alanya is offering the best all-inclusive prices in Turkey, but there is very little between resorts like Bodrum, Marmaris and Alanya, which all have deals for under £250 per person for a week.

For example, go to the 3* Pekcan Hotel in Alanya on Saturday September 16 from Luton for £189 per person for a week all-inclusive, or the 5* rated Kusadasi Golf and Spa Resort for £251 per person on the same dates.

Mallorca from £178 per person

Mallorca is offering the best lead-in prices for all-inclusive hotel deals across the Balearics this year.

The island is in the top 3 holiday destinations for Brits this summer according to data, with a flight time of two hours and a season lasting all the way through to October.

Deals on the island include a last-minute all-inclusive break for £178 at the 3-star Hotel Blue Sea Don Jaime departing Saturday May 20 from London Luton.

Alternatively go in the last week of the school holidays and, for a family of four, departing Saturday August 26 from Gatwick, 3* all-inclusive prices start from £339 per person at the three-star HSM Calas Park.

Rhodes, the Greek Islands, from £267 per person

The Greek islands want our custom – food and drink prices have been kept low and in some cases have even dropped in the last few years.

Expect to pay from only £267 per person for a week in an all-inclusive hotel this summer in Rhodes, staying at the 3 star Kalithea Sun and Sky, and departing London Luton on June 3.

The lovely island is famous for its medieval Old Town, crystal clear waters, wooded valleys and ancient history.

Corfu, the Greek Islands, from £253 per person 

The amount of Brits looking for summer holidays to popular hotspots like Ibiza and the Costa Del Sol are down this year, with a surge in interest in places like Corfu, Crete and Zante.

It's not hard to see why – an all-inclusive 3* holiday in June to Corfu for a week is available from only £253 per person when staying at the three-star Golden Sands Hotel and departing London Stansted on Thursday June 1.

When departing on the same date to the Costa Del Sol, a couple would pay from £354 each  when staying at the three-star, Royal Costa Hotel.

Sunny Beach, Bulgaria from £245 per person

If you fancy affordable sun and sand, Sunny Beach on the Black Sea coast in Bulgaria has an average of nine hours a day of sunshine in September and regularly tops surveys for its good value resort costs.

It’s also easy to get to, with holiday packages on offer from 18 UK airports.

The Blue Flag beach stretches for five miles and the Unesco-listed town of Nessebar is only a 15-minute drive away.

Expect to pay from around £245 per person for a 3* all-inclusive holiday for a week, when staying at the 3 star MPM Boomerang Hotel.
