First Choice is giving Brits the chance to take budget holidays to Greece and Turkey as part of a new deal with hotel stays from just £5 ppp.
Yes, you read correctly ; £5 per person, one night. The best part is that there are also loads of popular holiday destinations such as Rhodes, Kos, Skiathos, Corfu and Zante to name a few.
In fact when we looked there were hundreds of holidays available for less than £10 pp, usually for holidays in May and October, with dining and bed and breakfast options.
You can check out hotel stays for £5 pp on the First Choice website here.

It should be noted that the offers are based on a one night stay, but you can of course choose to add more nights to your stay.
Of course, the offer doesn’t include your flights, but the good news is that there are plenty of great deals to be found for the summer months. For example, TUI Airways offers a number of cheap fares which include offers from £155 pp in May in Greece, while Skyscanner can be a good source to compare cheap flights to Greece.
It’s not just Greece that’s included – when we looked around we were also able to find cheap hotel deals for Turkey, including holiday favorite Dalaman, with prices from £8 per person per night.
You can view hotel stays at £8 pp on the First Choice website here. Again, Skyscanner can be a good source for comparing cheap flights to Turkey.
Don’t be discouraged if the offers or dates don’t suit you. We’ve also got summaries of other holiday deals we think you’ll like, plus a guide to the latest cheap flights we think are worth your radar.
Greece and Turkey are currently among the countries open to the British for holidays at the moment.
There’s good news for British holidaymakers also considering a Greek getaway, as the hotspot is one of 12 countries that have recently relaxed their travel rules.
Greece recently changed its rules to exempt fully vaccinated Britons from Covid testing requirements, and is also ending the need for passenger locator forms from travellers.
If you are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated you will need proof of a negative Covid test result – this can be a PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival, or an antigen test within the 48 hours.
There are already plenty of offers for summer 2022, including hotspots such as Greece, Spain, France and more. Here we’ve rounded up some of the best:
- TUI offers free places for children, including during school holidays – book here.
- Loveholidays offers all-inclusive packages from £165 pp – book here.
- First Choice offers free places for children on all-inclusive holidays – book here.
- Jet2holidays has various offers including free babies – book here.

Meanwhile, Turkey is also open to vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers, with different rules depending on your vaccination status.
Vaccinated Britons can visit without needing Covid tests, although they must complete an online pre-travel form within 72 hours of travel.
Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travelers will need to take either a PCR test within 72 hours of travel, or an antigen test within 48 hours of travel, and complete the form as well. Turkey is also accepting holidaymakers who can show evidence of a recent recovery from Covid within the last six months.
Travel restrictions can change quickly during the pandemic, so always check the latest Foreign Office travel advice for a destination before booking or going on an overseas trip.
