Decide on a resort
Decide where you want to go or stay in Corfu. Kavos is well known as a young person's party destination. Sidari is also a resort to visit if you're looking for an active night life. San Stefanos with its beautiful horseshoe beach and village streets suits those who want somewhere quieter, as does Nissaki which is built around three crescent bays.
Check quality of accommodation
Log on to Tripadvisor.co.uk, type in the name of the resort you want to visit and check comments from other travelers about accommodation available in the area. This will give you some idea about which hotels or apartments meet your requirements.
Obtain package holiday prices
Use the information you've obtained about resorts and accommodation to check out the price of package holidays for the dates on which you want to travel. Corfu is available as a summer destination from most UK airports. Compare prices on Thomascook.com, Thomson.co.uk, Jet2.co.uk and EasyJet.co.uk.
Jet2 and easyJet's websites both have package holiday sections.
Check independent booking cost
Compare the price of package holidays with the cost of arranging each part of the trip separately. Find a flight on Charterflightcentre.co.uk. Visit Alpharooms.com or Medhotels.com to obtain a price for accommodation.
Don't forget to include a transfer (using a website such as Suntransfers.com).
Look for a late deal
If you want to get away quickly but don't have a specific date in mind, check out prices in the "Late Deals" sections of Thomson.co.uk and Thomascook.com.
Find out if a lower price is available
You now have a good idea of the lowest price available for the holiday you want to enjoy in Corfu. One final attempt you can make to reduce the price even more is to take a printed copy of your lowest online quote to a High street travel agent and ask if they can give you an even lower quote for the same holiday, or something similar. If you do this, make sure you have printed details of all elements of your trip - flights, transfers and accommodation.
