You could try travelsupermarket website, or skyscanner. Both these search for available flights on a given date, or month in the case of skyscanner. We use Monarch, but depends where you are flying from.
Thanks I will check them out. Think that's the problem. It has to be EMA or BHX. To go to Gatwick would mean any money saved would be swallowed up travelling there.Edited: 20 August 2013, 22:15
Yup, flights are the killer pricewise, lanzarote 4u is the site we always use, reasonable villas, expensive flights, it may be worth considering travelling from another airport
Of all the london airports Luton is generally the cheapest closely followed by gatwick.
If you are prepared to fly out of Brum or EMA then Luton only another hour and you can get some bargain Ryanair flights out of there even when you addin luggage.
I paid £560 return for two of us couple of months ago with Thomas cook. Flying on 26 sept, return 3 oct. from Manchester. The cheapest flight from EMA was a lot dearer and flight time much later which meant we would only have had five days holiday. The £560 was the final price, including 20kg hold luggage each. Used skyscanner and for the times we wanted TC were the best. EMA is only 15 miles from home, but have only flown from there once. That was 7.30 am on a Sunday. Not paying for accommodation so £560 for two of us is a very cheap holiday!
Flights from Leeds-Bradford tend to be pretty cheap compared to other airports, and both Jet2 and Monarch fly to Lanzarote from there.
I recently booked with Monarch for October flying from LBA, total cost of £430 for 2 people flying out on a Thursday and flying back 12 days later on a Monday.Edited: 21 August 2013, 13:38
As said above, flight prices have gone up, it seems if you can get a decent price one way it is a lot more the other way. We have booked Monarch and the total was £700 return for three , no luggage. I have even looked at a flight to mainland Spain or Portugal and then on to Lanzarote but it is still no cheaper. What we have done to reduce the cost is to use Tesco reward vouchers in exchange for Monarch credit vouchers. For every £10 in Tesco vouchers you get £15 Monarch. We also have petrol points from Shell which give you avois credit which you can use for other flights. The only other tip is to look to book as far in advance as possible and my wife, who scrutinises the prices insists that I book on weekday as the prices go up at the weekend. Not sure if that is the case, but it would not surprise me.
Thanks for the tip about monarch vouchers! Might try that myself.
I see that nectar points allow you to exchange for easyjet flights, liverpool -lanzarote @ 500 points for £2.50 credit, doesn't sound much, but they give them to you for free on shopping etc + if you take Sainsburys credit card they quadruple the points on purchases in store.

Agreed with someone above.....flight prices across the board seem to be a lot more expensive than in recent years - even in the "quiet" months in Jan and Feb when in the past you could easily find returns below £100 with luggage am struggling to find below £150.
