Start Planning your Summer Holidays Soon

Posted on November 25, 2017 at 10:27 am

The summer seems a very long way off at the moment! This is often the perfect time to start planning your holidays for the summer, however. Whilst you are cold at home, you will be more motivated to look for warm, beautiful destinations that really appeal to you. It is the perfect time to find a holiday that will fulfil your dreams for the perfect trip.

If you are hoping to travel from June onwards, this is also the cheapest time to begin booking travel. All the flight operators will be releasing their summer flights, so they will all be battling for the lowest price. Make the most of this and book soon.

Holidays will sell quickly, especially during school holidays. Get in early to avoid being disappointed in the holidays and packages that are left. Begin looking at where you would like to go and earmarking accommodation options as soon as you can.

Getting the Most Out of the Christmas Holidays

Posted on October 30, 2017 at 11:22 pm

Christmas is now only a few weeks away – where has the year gone? If you get some time off over the Christmas period, it’s nice to be able to make the most of it and not to just sit at home eating turkey. Here are some ideas for Christmas breaks:

  • Head out for daytrips. The UK has lots of beautiful destinations and many are right on your doorstep. Make an effort to go a little further afield than you usually would over Christmas.
  • Book cheap flights to a destination for the New Year. This is a great time of year to travel as everyone is in a good mood and you’ll meet some great people.
  • Enjoy a romantic Christmas break away. Take some time out for yourself this year and rather than hosting a lavish Christmas celebration at your house, go away with your partner for a few days, in Europer or the UK.

Some Alternative Travel Options to Flying

Posted on September 1, 2017 at 3:07 pm

Flying is not right for everyone. Some people find they don’t like the sensation of being so high up and out of control. Others prefer not to have the stress of starting their holiday in an airport, surrounded by other stressed people and with the potential for huge delays. If this applies to you, we have some alternative options for you to consider:

  1. Driving. Take your car to Europe with you and give yourself the freedom of being able to drive to different destinations. Make the travelling a part of the trip and take some scenic routes.
  2. Sailing. Ferries can be very good value for money and you can take your car with you as well if you want to.
  3. Train. Use a train like the Eurostar to get to another country or take local trains. You will see some amazing sights along the way, especially if you take a mountain or coastal route.

Deciding to go on a Golfing Holiday

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 1:14 pm

If you are an avid golfer, then a golfing holiday could be the perfect break for you. It is the ideal way to practice your game and work on your skills, all whilst in a beautiful setting where you can get away from it all. Here are some points to help you plan your dream golfing vacation:

  • Select your destination carefully. Check what the weather will be like before you go, or you could end up spending very little time out on the golf course. The Algarve is known for its mild temperatures and is an excellent destination.
  • Decide what you are doing about equipment. If you take it on a plane with you, it might incur extra costs. Plan for this, or hire golf clubs when you arrive.
  • Plan to stay close to the golf course. This will give you good access, as well as potentially saving you some money when you want to go onto the course.
