Well, Christmas and New Year are over, the fairy lights have gone, kids are back at school and now we’re in the thick of winter and January is practically gone. With a few inches of snow on the ground at least we can say our climate is getting back to “normal”! Now we can start dreaming about escaping to warmer climes…
Where to go in 2015?
There’s the obvious choices such as the Canaries for some winter sunshine but what about further afield to the up and coming, Portuguese-speaking Coste Verde Islands in the Atlantic off the coast of West Africa? Or discover Dubai with some amazing offers (and shopping bargains!) to be had?
A favourite of ours is South Africa, where there are some exceptional luxury country-style guest houses and lodges to stay in, fabulous restaurants to dine at (for a fraction of the cost in UK) and spectacular scenery to drive around (and on the same side of the road as we drive). With only an hour time difference, an unbelievably favourable exchange rates and a 10-14 day self-drive tour of the country costing from only £1500pp, it’s one not to be missed.
With Valentine’s Day around the corner why not treat that special someone to a weekend break? Paris, Prague, Amsterdam, Barcelona and even New York have been amongst the destinations of choice from several of our most romantic clients. Come on guys…”You know it makes sense!”
If a summer holiday is the only time you can get away there are some beautiful contemporary hotels in Greece offering fantastic “all-inclusive” rates for families and couples alike. Or how about a Mediterranean cruise? Some cruise lines are currently offering free drinks and gratuities so you won’t need to spend a penny whilst on board (…well perhaps not literally !)
Fancy something different? What about an escorted tour? There are companies that specialise in sightseeing trips for singles, couples, families or groups…action packed or relaxing…staying in either basic, superior or luxury accommodation in most popular parts of the world.
We have recently had a spate of multi-centre trip enquiries for the USA and have managed to save clients literally £100’s on quotes received from so-called “specialist” travel agents. With the purchasing power we have with our membership of a travel agents’ national consortium , combined with the direct accounts held at some of the world’s leading hotel wholesalers, we can not only provide you with our renowned professional yet friendly service to ensure your perfect bespoke itinerary, we can also compete easily with what the web has to offer!
