Chelsea said: “You may well have seen Albania’s sparkling shoreline on the likes of TikTok and Instagram, thanks to many touting their seaside resort of Ksamil ‘the Maldives of Europe’. The good news is that whilst they both may have white sands, Albania is poles apart when it comes to price.
“A few months ago, I priced up a two-week road trip in May and found that I could get my flights, accommodation and car hire for easily under £600 per person. Whilst it’s not as cheap booking last minute for summer, your money will still go a lot further than many other destinations in Europe and a road trip means you simply move on to the next place on your itinerary should you find accommodation over budget for one of your nights.”
Best cheap deal for Albania holidays
If you are planning a holiday to Albania, Chelsea recommends making the most of car hire deals so you can really enjoy exploring. She shared her favourite summer deal:
Chelsea said: “There’s a reason why Egypt has been named the destination where your money will go the furthest this year. In May 2022, £1 sterling would have got you £23.40 Egyptian pounds. In May 2023, your £1 will now get you £38.56.
“This means that a hotel-only deal doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune and in fact, it’s a great time to explore the local eateries and treat yourself without having to count every penny.
“It’s going to be hot though! With temperatures in the summer months averaging around 37 degrees so make sure your accommodation has air conditioning and get that sun hat and lotion at the ready!”
