British tourists waiting to see if holiday prices drop last-minute might be out of luck this summer.

Richard Singer, chief executive of TravelSupermarket, said: “It is unlikely that prices will fall substantially for this summer. Prices for next year are looking on a par with this year.”

Britons still looking to book might want to check prices for the last weeks of August, which research from Skyscanner found was generally the cheapest time to travel.

WhichTravel? suggests travellers could save money by staying longer and being flexible on dates.

The team found that staying for 11 nights rather than 10 sometimes made package holidays cheaper.

However, with many British families already under pressure from rising prices in the UK, a holiday may be out of reach for some this year.
