Travelsupermaket's Emma said: "It's a fact that Brexit is causing summer package -holiday prices to Europe to drop.

"Some British -holidaymakers say that they don't want to book until they know the outcome of Brexit, while others say they want to avoid Europe altogether."

Travelsupermarket looked at more than a million package holiday prices.

Travel agents' body Abta said: "Travel pricing is very fluid.

"With the Easter break being much later this year, holidaymakers will have more options.

The return to popularity of Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia is likely to have an effect on prices in other destinations so there are some good value holidays available."

Last week easyJet blamed economic -uncertainty and Brexit for expected first-half losses of GBP275million.
