There's no denying it's becoming more expensive to go on holiday - especially during peak periods. But the good news is there are still plenty of late deals on the market if you look around.

According to consumer advice champions Which?, flights could be up to 42% more expensive than pre-Covid levels, which makes all-inclusive flights and accommodation bundles more appealing.

Although if you can grab a decent flight, room only options also offer great flexibility. And you don't even have to go abroad. October is a wonderful time to enjoy the waterways and country trails closer to home.

Here are a few good value family breaks yet to be snapped up.

Ticking all the boxes in Turkey

Sun, sea, sand and 13 swimming pools. What more could a family want? Adults can play on a 36-hole golf course or in the spa and wellness centre at the Cullinan Belek resort in Turkey, while kids' clubs cater to tiny tots and teenagers. Take a stroll along 800metres of sandy beach gazing up at the Taurus mountains, and dine in a choice of 20 restaurants and bars.
