*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.

Why go to Lagos

Holidays in Lagos deliver all the best of the Algarve: stunning wide and clean beaches, tantalising local dishes, cobbled streets full of history and intrigue, glittering marinas and a warm welcome on offer to holidaymakers.

Old and new conspire to make this proud port a memorable place to visit. It's no wonder that Lagos holidays are popular.

This ancient port city is a jewel studded on the western end of the sunny Algarve in Portugal. Visiting Brits have long held a special place in their hearts for charming Lagos.

Take strolls along the cobbled streets of the walled old town and rest in sun-dappled squares, tour the 17th-century fortress or take in the atmosphere at the old slave market. The past of this old maritime town will come alive during your holidays.

If all you want to do during your break away from home is lie back and feel the Portuguese sun on your skin, then holidays in Lagos cater for this, too. The wide expanse of sand at Meia Praia is complemented by a selection of secluded coves and secret beaches, such as the cliff-backed Praia do Pinhao.

You can get to Lagos with flights arriving into Faro Airport (FAO). Lagos attracts all kind of holidaymakers, from families, to couples and groups, though the resort maintains an upmarket air and the hotels and resorts are generally high end.

A candlelit dinner here perfectly rounds off a sun-kissed day in Lagos. There are many shops here, too, to satisfy the itch to whip out the plastic.

Lagos is also an excellent base from which to explore this stunning corner of Portugal. Hire a car to get off the beaten track and visit the tree-clad Monchique Mountains, where cycling and hiking trails await active types.

The charming town of Silves, with its fine Moorish fortress, is also worth a visit, and if you want to feel like you're sitting on the edge of the world, you can drive to Cape St Vincent, the most south-western point of Portugal. Savour the Atlantic Ocean air as you dream of the adventurers who set out from here during the Age of Discovery.
