The 28-day all-inclusive holiday covers travel, accommodation and food. For those opting for the month-long stay at Egypt’s Stella Gardens Resort & Spa, spa and gym access, wi-fi and TV streaming services are included. Some of the other destinations on offer are Turkey, Malta and Portugal.

According to the UK Office for National Statistics’ inflation calculator, the trip – costing £650 ($767) per person – is £227 ($268) cheaper per person than staying in the UK for the month.

Location-independent professionals are eager to blend business and leisure. EasyJet Holidays’ stays with wi-fi included cater for remote workers looking to affordably travel this winter while avoiding rising household bills in the UK.
