Beach holiday in October, travel out of Zürich

Hi All,

im looking to get away for a week in October to a beach resort somewhere but cant really find many options flying from Zurich without paying crazy amounts.

does anyone have any recommendations which is reasonable priced for about 5000 chf for a week? i was looking at Turkey but just cannot seem to get good flights?

Did you try Pegasus ?

Definitely far less than CHF5K a week!

Re: Beach holiday in October

I would try using a travel agent as they can book seats on charter flights that you can't book online yourself, ie with Hello, etc.

Re: Beach holiday in October

Would south of Barcelona be warm enough for you ? I'm sure there are plenty of beach resorts to match all sorts of budgets.... and the flights are very cheap and frequent.

We're thinking Malta for Christmas...

The swiss seem to be pretty keen on the canary islands...

Not heard or Pegasus - certainly a lot cheaper but but i see that you need to stop but the kids are at an age now where they can probably cope with that now.

not sure barca would be warm enough in Oct.

I agree though about the swiss going to the canaries as ive been recommended Gran Canaria but its not really what i look for in a beach holiday (just look like a huge rock to me)

Egypt is lovely and you can get flights to Sharm on Swiss and EasyJet (Geneva). We've been to Dahab twice and absolutely love it

Fly to Turkey on business using Pegasus, great airline, new fleet, will have to transfer through Istanbul's second aiport SAW, but it is not a ballbreaker. May be worth looking at flights out of Stuttgart!

Re: Beach holiday in October, travel out of Zürich

EasyJet to Tenerife from Basel + look on Trip Advisor for best hotel or apartment deal.
