The same holiday if departing on a Thursday evening in August costs £1480. A saving of £854.
A spokesman for Which? said that 'You could save an average of £39 by departing on a weekday rather than a weekend during the holidays. Seven of the eight most expensive departures we found we Saturdays.'
The study also found that holidays with flights leaving after 6pm were also generally cheaper.
