Rosie Panter, travel expert at dealchecker commented: “The October half-term is often seen by many to be the last chance for sun before the winter months set in, and it’s clear from the flight search data captured that this is still the case.

Destinations such as Dubai remain popular with those looking for slightly shorter breaks of between four and five nights, while holiday hot spots in Spain, Portugal and Turkey offer great week-long all-inclusive holidays. Meanwhile New York makes for a great city to visit in the run up to Halloween and Thanksgiving, with lots of festivities for families to get involved in, along with a little pre-Christmas shopping and sightseeing.”
