If the end of half term has got you thinking about future breaks, then new research has put some of the cheapest options for Easter in the spotlight.

The team at luggage storage platform Bounce have revealed some of the best destinations for savings over Easter – as well as the worst.

They analysed the average nightly cost of a three-star hotel, comparing both months of the year and days of the week, and have put together a list of the best ones.

The destination with the highest possible savings by month is Jaipur, India. This seems to be the best time for hotel deals, as a stay in March costs £27 on average – compared to £249 in January. 

It’s also significantly cheaper to visit Rio de Janeiro over the Easter period, with savings of up to 483% a night. A hotel in Rio in June will cost £344 on average, compared to just £59 in April – making it the cheapest time of year to visit. 

Great savings for April can also be found in Johannesburg (186%), Beijing (124%) and Munich (113%).
