If you’re desperate to visit Cyprus but you’re on a strict budget, you’ll be forgiven for thinking that this lovely castaway island could be out of your reach. But that’s not the case. Cyprus does luxury just as easily as it does bargain low-cost holidays - and you won’t have to compromise on quality or brave the basics.
Whether you’re saving up for your annual holiday or trying to squeeze in one more getaway this year, cheap Cyprus holidays are easy to come by with a great range of experiences on offer. Will you stay in buzzing Paphos, a modern resort with all the trimmings, opt for laid-back Coral Bay with its relaxing ambience, or plump for historical Larnaca - a haven for sightseeing and archaeological wonders?
Whatever type of holiday you’re after, Cyprus can offer them all - with affordability to match. And if you’ve got the kids in tow, bargain family holidaysare one of the things that Cyprus does best, thanks to its many family-orientated resorts and quiet bays with child-safe waters.
You can further reduce the cost of your holiday by shopping around - and look into do-it-yourself holidays to see if you can beat the price of the package tour operators. Generally by the time you’ve factored in flights, accommodation, resort transfers and sourced facilities such as on-site kids’ clubs, you’re better off travelling with a package holiday operator. Unless you’re looking for something that’s off the beaten track - in which case a DIY approach is likely to work better for you in terms of pricing and flexibility.
The bonus with package holidays is that the closer you book to your departure date, the cheaper it is. Really great bargains can be had when booking a couple of weeks before you travel - but that’s only if you can bear to wait that long…
