Bargain breaks...Easter holidays

Yep, it's nearly Easter (April 10-13) ALREADY... but the good news is there's still time to book an Easter break - and even better, there are plenty of deals and cheap holidays to be had. Here's our pick of some of the best on the web:

Expedia is offering a mixture of city and beach breaks. Choose between four nights in Amsterdam (April 9-13) from symbol(pound)213 per person, or seven nights in Las Vegas (9-16 April) from symbol(pound)556 per person. If you're looking for sun, sea, sand, etc, try seven nights in the Costa del Sol area from symbol(pound)308 per person or seven nights in Tenerife from symbol(pound)364.

Thomas Cook's last minute Easter deals include two nights in Paris from symbol(pound)182 per person, and three nights in Warsaw - to coincide with the Warsaw Beethoven Festival - from symbol(pound)268 per person. There's also three nights' B&B in Marrakech from symbol(pound)441 per person or 14 nights' B&B in Sharm el Sheikh from symbol(pound)509 per person.

If you'd rather stick to the UK there's plenty on offer here, too: In Edinburgh, the Townhouse Company is offering two nights' luxury accommodation (hotels include The Bonham, Channings, The Howard and The Edinburgh Residence), full Scottish breakfast and one three-course meal from symbol(pound)157 per person. Center Parcs also has vacancies over Easter and during the school holidays - accommodation at Sherwood Forest (Nottinghamshire), for example, starts at symbol(pound)29 per person per night over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. And finally English Country Cottages (it covers Scotland and Wales too), has lots of self-catering accommodation across the country over the Easter period, such as Warby Cottage in Upper Sheringham, Norfolk, which sleeps up to five and has been reduced to symbol(pound)504.90 for seven nights.

And finally, with apologies for sounding like your mum ... but you will need insurance, too. Our Superior Travel Insurance covers you for Scheduled Airline Failure Protection (up to symbol(pound)1,000 per person), Redundancy cover (up to symbol(pound)5,000 per person), Holiday Cancellation (up to symbol(pound)5,000 per person), Medical cover (up to symbol(pound)10 million) and Lost Luggage (up to symbol(pound)1,750).
