The Canary Islands - that glorious archipelago located just off the West coast of Africa - is a popular holiday hotspot with more than enough variety to suit the tastes and preferences of pretty much anyone.
Holidays to Lanzarote can be a geological exploration or a lazy week on the beach, a fun-filled clubbing holiday or a budget family break. This diverse island was born out of ancient volcanic activity that left a fascinating legacy evident from its many deep caverns, craggy mountains and lunar-like landscape complete with ancient lava flows and craters.
Tenerife has its fair share of stunning volcanic scenery, but this island - the largest of the Canaries - is better known for its lively resorts. The likes of Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos steal the show with their all-night clubs and big name DJs who come from far and wide to play to the party-loving masses. Cheap Tenerife offers typically revolve around these resorts which keep it accessible to all ages and budgets, but there are plenty of bargains to be had in any number of other locations on the island - especially in the bigger and more developed beach-side resorts.
The same can be said for the other islands, including Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria. While Fuerteventura is generally lesser developed and best suited to those who like a quiet holiday by the beach, there are still plenty of bargains on offer - especially when booking through a recognised tour operator.
Similarly Gran Canaria has its fair share of competitive resorts and cut-price deals. And although any of these islands can be reached by scheduled flights, one of the best ways to save money is by booking a last-minute package holiday. You’ll get all the essentials included and will often save a huge chunk off the original price of the holiday - helping to make your getaway that little bit easier.
