If you are looking for cheap holidays to gran Canaria this page will try to help you in finding the best time of the year to come on holiday to Gran Canaria and when to book your holidays.
There are two holiday seasons in Gran Canaria the winter season which starts normally around the 15th of October till after the Easter Holidays, and the Summer season which is from the middle of April till the second week in October.
In the winter season to find a cheap holiday in Gran Canaria you will need to book well in advance, or trying to avoid peak tourist times such as Half Term October, Christmas, Half term February and Easter Holidays. As well in places like Las Palmas and Playa del Ingles, there are dates where the demand is even higher due to the celebration of the Carnivals.
In the winter season it is normal to find cheap flights from the UK at certain times of the year, why is that? I hear you asking. Because there are no hotels available on the island, and the airlines have trouble to fill the planes with holidaymakers. So don't be surprised if you find a flight to gran Canaria for less than 50 pounds but be careful, we run some other pages on the internet and there is not a year goes without someone contacting us asking for help as they have everything booked flights, transfers, airport parking and such but they can not find a hotel in Gran Canaria.
We always recommend booking your room asap in places like Booking.com most of the hotels you can book with no cancellation cost up to one week before you arrive. So if you are thinking of coming at Christmas, or any of the winters half terms, book your hotel now!.
The easier months to find a cheap last minute holiday in the winter it will be the end of November and the first two weeks in December, and then the first week in January and March. You can always visit your favorite tour-operator and see if they have any availability as some of them have contracts with hotels where they secure several rooms for their customers.
In the Summer season, the months of July and August are the most expensive ones and September and May are normally the months when you can get late deal offers to the island.
