It is the season of holiday envy, when everybody seems to be going away and having an amazing time. Their holiday photographs can make you feel like you are in need of a holiday of your own, so if you haven’t booked anything yet, consider taking up a last-minute deal. You could find yourself getting some excellent value for money.

Lots of people will book their holidays a long way in advance to get good deals. However, it’s also possible to get very good deals last minute. You probably won’t have as much choice however, if you are flexible about where you travel, you will be able to find yourself some cheap holidays all over the world. It also helps to be a little bit flexible with dates and to search over a slightly extended period. Don’t enter a destination – just look for holidays in general and see where you could go.

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.

Preparing to travel to India

Posted on December 11, 2014 at 4:24 pm

Travelling to India has become increasingly popular over the last 5 or 10 years. The backpackers and gap year students have been visiting in their droves since the 1960s but it is now becoming a destination for the more ordinary, more mature, yet adventurous tourist who wants more from a holiday than just lounging by the side of a pool near Alicante.

However, it is absolutely vital to make sure all routine vaccinations are up to date before departure. In addition, some vaccinations, like hepatitis A and B, require a course of 3 injections over 3 months so do allow enough time for this to happen. Other courses and boosters which are also highly advised include tetanus, diphtheria and typhoid. Depending on the area to be visited, you may also require a course of anti-malarial tablets and to be vaccinated against Japanese encephalitis, especially if you are spending prolonged time in rural areas.

If you are staying in India for a long time, it is also worth considering a rabies shot too. However, providing you allow enough time before departure, your GP or practice nurse will be able to give up-to-date relevant health advice for the area of India to which you are travelling.

Everyone needs a holiday

Posted on September 21, 2014 at 5:06 pm

Some people look at a holiday as a luxury, but I think we should all try to budget in a holiday as if it was a necessity. The reason for this is that without having a break away from it all it is quick to become run down and can make us less productive in work and home life.

Holidays do not necessarily have to be expensive; just a weekend away in Wales camping can be all we need to recuperate from the daily chores and challenges that life throws at us.

If you have children, it is great for them to experience new things. If you have always stayed away in a resort or hotel then why not try braving the great outdoors. Although these holidays may not be as relaxing it can bring you closer as a family and actually make you appreciate the things that we have at home and possibly take for granted.

An Affordable Summer Break in Majorca

Posted on June 6, 2014 at 6:59 pm

Majorca is a really popular holiday destination in Europe, it’s big among teens on clubbing holidays, couples and families, and that’s because it has an awful lot to offer. Magaluf is the home of the clubbing strips and bars, but there are a wide range of water sports on offer here too so you can head out on a banana boat with your friends and then finish up with a bite to eat and a glass of wine in a quality restaurant.

Palma Nova is another popular area and it really does offer holidays makers the chance to experience white power beaches and turquoise waters. There are also some ancient ruins to visit if you want to take advantage of the history on offer. For a little bit more excitement the water park attracts a great deal of attention, yet there are plenty of wonderfully situated hotels and complexes so finding deals has never been easier.

Majorca has different hotels for different budgets, and you don’t necessarily have to spend a great deal here to enjoy a holiday in the sun.
