All inclusive

How much would you pay to book a 4* all inclusive holiday in the Canary Islands for Summer 2023 for two people?

I know this is one of those "how long is a piece of string" type questions but I'm curious.

    Hi

    As you said, how long is a piece of string.
    Its not for me and I would not go even if it was free.
    However, Google will give you an up to date idea.
    When looking, look like for like to compare.

    Good luck

    Love the Canaries but I would never go AI as half the fun of the place is going out exploring the local bar and restaurant scene.

    There really isn't any sort of meaningful benchmark figure for a question as vague as this*, so in your shoes I'd start by browsing on a site such as TUI, for holidays from your most convenient airport and on suitable dates and durations, and see what you find.  When you've made some progress on narrowing down islands and resorts (according to what it is you're looking for in a holiday), you can research hotels via reviews on the likes of TripAdvisor.

    High summer (during school holidays) is likely to involve peak prices, so if you have flexibility on dates you'll probably have more choice within your budget (have you identified a budget?), and there are many other options, of course, with other tour operators, or DIY bookings, or visiting a high street travel agent, or posting more specific questions on here....

    * out of curiosity, I did a quick search - you can get a week in June from London from below £1200, but three weeks in July from Aberdeen was up to £9400!

    If it was less than £100 a day each I'd be checking small print on the AI restrictions and the reviews!

    Also depends if you want a 5 star hotel with 24 hour A/I facilities or a 2 star with limits.

    To be fair, one of the criteria OP did include was that they're looking for 4 star:

    Have a look at Jet2 website - they have numerous filters which narrow down your search in respect of location etc.
    Unless you plan to be in and around the hotel all day you might want to consider Half Board as a more appealing deal.

    Summer 2023 holidays are already on sale.
    Just take a look at TUI, Easyjet, Jet2.

    As already pointed out, there can be big differences between what actually is included.
    Read the small print.

    I don't holiday in the Canaries but it may be that prices differ across the different islands.
    If you asked how much you'd pay for a holiday in Greece, the answer really would depend on whereabouts in Greece you planned to go.

    It also depends when you plan to go.
    Early season will be much cheaper than during school holidays.
    Departure airport and flight times will also make a difference.

    You don't even say if you're curious about prices for one week stay or two...

    So it really is a 'how long is a piece of string' question.

    Pre covid the Canaries were pretty well priced for eating out, haven't been since covid, but the entire holiday was a lot cheaper SC, Inc food and day trips than any of the AI holidays on offer at the time

    I would only go AI if that was the only option in somewhere like the Maldives.
