May Half Term is only a couple of weeks away, and pupils across the Portsmouth area will have a week away from the classroom.
Parents may also be looking to book some time off work and a short break away.
Some airlines are also offering deals on flights as people look to get their summer holidays sorted as soon as possible.
Term dates are available for schools in Portsmouth (dates from Portsmouth City Council) and Gosport, Fareham, Havant and Waterlooville (dates from Hampshire County Council).
Private schools will have their own term dates.
Parents are encouraged to check their individual school’s website for term dates, as inset dates may cause them to differ.
