The Easter holidays are upon us and if you're thinking of booking a last-minute getaway, there are plenty of holiday deals to be found.
Spain holidays continue to be a top holiday choice for UK families, and despite some recent confusion over entry rules, they are open for holidays (adults will need to be vaccinated or have proof of recovery, unvaccinated teens aged 12-17 will need a negative test).
Of course prices do surge when it comes to the peak holiday season, but the silver lining is that there are still deals to be found.
We take a look at some of the best Easter deals for popular Spanish destinations like Majorca and Ibiza.

If you're looking at the Easter weekend specifically, opting for a staycation or short-haul destination will be your best bet. Opt for some early flights or late night returns - the awkward travel times could play to your advantage.
If you've got young children who aren't in school yet, then make use of the flexibility while not tied to term time - even leaving towards the end of the Easter break could mean you save some cash.
UK holidays have continued to reign supreme in the pandemic and even though holidays abroad have reopened up, there is still plenty of demand for staycations.
