John-Lee Saez, managing director for Kayak Europe, comments: “With Easter falling later in the year, there’s still time to find a great deal to make the most of the long weekend.
"Many travellers book cheap flights but then get caught out with high-season accommodation costs, so we’ve looked into our data to share inspiration for hotels too.
“Those willing to go a bit further this Easter - for example to Agadir in Morocco - can find cheaper accommodation and get a good hit of sunshine.”
