EASYJET has launched a month-long winter holiday to Egypt costing less than average UK household bills.
The Â£650 per person package â billed as an âEscape the UKâ break â is all-inclusive so food and drinks are covered.
It is said to be Â£227 cheaper than average winter bills for the same period.
Rent, transport, utilities and food costs over 28 days totals Â£877 per person â making the easyJet offer 26 per cent less.
Financial expert Lynn Beattie said: âFor those who could viably rent their homes and work abroad, the new package deal by easyJet holidays poses a very attractive offer.â
And in a further enticement, temperatures at the five-star Stella Gardens Resort in Hurghada are around 20C in December â compared to a chilly 6C here.
News of the deal, which goes on sale today, comes as research shows half of Brits are considering a winter holiday to avoid higher heating bills.
The National Grid has warned of the possibility of rolling blackouts and powercuts being a regular occurrence across the country during the cold nights of January and February if electricity generators run out of fuel.
And energy costs are set to go as high as Â£5,000 a year in April when the Governmentâs Energy Bill Relief Scheme comes to an end.
Matt Callaghan from easyJet yesterday said: âYes, comparably, our new 28-day winter escape is cheaper than staying at home this year.
âWith a growing number of Brits now searching online to see if they can escape abroad this winter, we knew we needed to try to provide consumers with a solution.â
