Because of the current global terror threat there are an abundance of cheap holidays up for grabs, if you’re brave enough.

According to The Independent some of the lowest holiday prices for over a decade are available to British travellers.

The Egyptian resort of Sharm el Sheikh is currently under a Foreign Office travel ban, causing people to think twice about visiting the country. But for those who laugh in the face of danger, Thomson is offering a week stay at the four-star Sheraton Luxor Resort in Egypt, with flights, transfers, accommodation and breakfast for only £247.

The Foreign Office ban at Sharm el Sheikh is expected to be lifted on January 7th. If so, you can get an EasyJet return flight from Gatwick for £134, or Manchester from £180 – which is way below the cost of operating the 4,500-mile round journey.

And Ryanair are also offering some bargains, with 100,000 seats currently going for a fiver or below one-way in a bid to stimulate demand. They’re offering a £9 return trip to the Spanish Mediterranean coast from Stansted, even though the passenger duty on its own costs them £13.

An early-season ski holiday to the Austrian resort of Kaprun will set you back a mere £255 with Crystal Ski Holidays. This includes flights from Manchester, as well as transfer and B&B accommodation.

The threat from ISIS members returning to Europe, especially after the Paris attacks, has led travel industry experts to believe there will be a further increase of cheap flights and hotels in Europe in the near future.
