Strike before it gets more expensive: Inexpensive on vacation: Here you will find offers for less than 300 euros per person
Rising energy costs are also driving prices in the travel market. Despite this, there are still some amazingly cheap holiday deals – for couples, package holidaymakers and families. We’ll show you where and how you still have chances of cheap beach holidays this year.
Looking at the account is currently worrying many people. Is there enough money for a holiday that you were so looking forward to after the long Corona break? Even if the prices have been rising for a few months and the completely cancellable offers are becoming rarer, there is good news: Popular bathing destinations such as Mallorca and Hurghada in Egypt on the Red Sea are much cheaper in autumn than in summer. If you can travel outside of the school holidays, you can still find great bargains during these times.
The expert tip is: Book as soon as possible before the general price increases also affect package tours. We present seven vacations with great savings potential – some for less than 300 euros for a week.
1. Bulgaria: Hotel Baikal – beach holiday for little money on the Black Sea coast
Family vacation on the Black Sea: The Bulgarian bathing resort is not called Sunny Beach for nothing, because sun, white sand, dunes and beach fun dominate here. The 3-star Hotel Baikal is located in the second row, about 150 meters from the sandy beach.
The quieter southern part of the five-kilometre-long beach, which slopes gently into the sea, is particularly popular with families. HolidayCheck users praise the good value for money in the hotel and the newly renovated rooms on the top seven floors. From there you can enjoy the panoramic view of the bay of Nessebar from the box spring bed. Children will enjoy the pool area and the kids’ club. Animators invite you to a variety of activities – from water polo to gymnastics to stretching, darts or table tennis.
If you need even more action, you can let off steam in Luna Park Sunny Beach, not far away, with fast roller coaster rides and fun children’s rides.

2. Spain, Mallorca: Hotel HSM Calas Park – mega holiday with sea views
Family-friendly apartment hotel with a magnificent view: The 3-star hotel in the east of Mallorca is built in terraces on the cliffs near Callas de Mallorca. This dream location allows for an unobstructed view of the sea from each of the 136 apartments.
The apartments consist of two spacious rooms and are equipped with a kitchenette. Due to the hillside location, the pool is not particularly large and deep. However, it is ideal for families with smaller children, as parents can keep an eye on their offspring while they are splashing – as long as they are not distracted by the endless view of the sea.
Speaking of the sea: Calas Park does not have its own beach, but there are three small bays a few minutes’ walk away. An animation team provides entertainment. For children there is a playground, mini club and mini golf, as well as the mascot Sami who accompanies the little ones in games and activities.

It is 450 meters to the white sandy beach of Sveti Vlas. Sun loungers, parasols, water sports, lifeguards, showers, toilets and small beach cafés await sun-seekers there. At the Larisa, guests appreciate the familiar flair, cleanliness and simplicity as well as the good price-performance ratio.
