Package holidays to Corfu

Package holidays to Corfu have been happening since the 1960s. So you can expect great service, amazing beaches and phenomenal weather here.
Corfu is unique in the sense that holiday prices, especially hotel rooms, don't tend to shoot up that much in peak season. This is down to the huge number of hotels that are available.
Choosing a package holiday to Corfu in the summer also opens up lots of routes to this Ionian island. Tour operators use many local airports in the UK, making it a convenient way to reach Corfu.

With lots of choice comes competition for your business. Compare what's out there and start saving some euros for the taverna!

You'll find individual villas and villa resorts all across the island. Want to avoid the crowds? Then you might want to head to quieter parts of the island such as Paleokastritsa or Kassiopi.
