Magaluf Cheap Package Holidays Majorca Mallorca Spain

Cheap holidays to Magaluf are a Majorcan staple. For many teenagers they provide the first experience of holidaying without parents; for many young adults they provide a week of pure hedonism. Less than £200 will give you seven nights self catering in the sun, surrounded by beaches, bars and Britons.

Such holidays are not difficult to arrange: there are thousands of beds in Magaluf, although during the peak season (June to September) you should try to book several months in advance.

Twenty UK airports have direct flights to Majorca, arriving at Palma, the island's only airport. And since Magaluf is 13 kilometres around the Bay of Palma from the airport, the time to reach your hotel is thankfully short.

The transfer may not be included in the price of cheap holidays to Magaluf; tour operators decided to make it an optional extra in response to the decision by many tourists to hire cars at the airport and not use the bus.

You decide the style of your accommodation at the point of booking. You can choose self catering or a hotel and if the latter, you then need to opt for a room only, bed and breakfast, half board, full board or all inclusive deal. With cheap holidays to Magaluf, the options will usually be limited to half board (breakfast and evening meal) and all inclusive (three meals plus snacks and drinks, but not necessarily in the evening). Accommodation is typically provided in a three star hotel or a two or three key rated apartment complex, and the size of Magaluf means that you should not be more than a ten minute walk from the beach and the bars.

A hotel room will probably be cleaned daily; an apartment may not be cleaned during your stay. If you want a self catering apartment with hotel facilities such as daily cleaning and reception, you can stay in one of Magaluf's aparthotels.

The initial price quoted for a package may seem cheap, but that is before the extras. Apart from the transfer, the in flight meals and the charge to sit with your companions on the plane, there may be a supplement if your apartment is not filled to capacity. And airlines have also taken to charging a separate fuel supplement of around £20 to reflect the rising cost of oil.
