Seven nights in Salou at a 3* hotel, half board, with flights from Luton or Gatwick, costs an average of £1,230 for a family of four with children aged under 12. Pop into your local East of England Co-op travel branch to get the most up-to-date offers – including fantastic deals on late bookings.
Take advantage of all that the area has to offer with our pre-bookable excursions.
