Thomas Cook advertises its "schools out" summer sale with an ad in The Times and The Sun. Korean Air highlights its "excellent service" in an ad running in The Times and the "Hols from £9.50" promotion continues in The Sun.

Halfords takes a full page in The Times and The Daily Mail pushing half price bikes and camping equipment ahead of the school holidays. Millets has the same idea, advertising a tent sale in The Independent.

McDonalds is prepared for the change in weather, putting out a full-page ad in The Sun declaring "hooray for drizzle" as part of its current weather campaign.
