1. Re: why are prices so high in early November?


I do not know for sure but I do wonder if the conflict in Egypt has put some people off of that destination and {as with many holiday places} the popular ones {ie the Canary Islands} are "cashing in".

IMO if I found a price that I could cope with even though it is a high price I would go ahead and book the not check again to see if the price had changed :0). You could have the situation that the prices could just keep rising and end up not being able to afford it, then think how you will feel. We all work hard for our holidays and we all want the best and cheapest we can get but as the time ticks on the choices become less and less :0(

Hope this helps

November is a lot of people's last get-away before Xmas. Always a very popular month, year after year!

Its also from the beginning of November " Scandi Season " where tourists from Northern Europe travel to the Canaries to escape their winters ,so a lot of hotels go over to that market so that limits hotel rooms .This means UK prices increase

Are you going school half term week? Some of the Manchester schools half term don't go back till November and school holiday time always pushes the price up.

Apart from the fact that winter is high season in the Canaries, I agree with sparhawk1's comment. I have friends who live and work in Gran Canaria and they have said the hotels and apartments have definitely benefitted from the problems in Egypt and the rest of North Africa.
