Choosing a Holiday

It’s that time of year again: the rain is pouring down, it’s cold and you’re in the mood to plan your next getaway. But choosing a holiday is easier said than done. Will you opt for a late deal and a quick fix, a fun-filled adventure with the family, or put some money aside for a trip to the tropics?

Whatever you fancy, there’s a world of choice to suit every taste and budget. Take the Caribbean for instance. Holidays to Cuba are simply magical - a memorable trip to a sun-drenched corner of the world that’s all breathtaking beaches, soaring mountain peaks and a laid-back way of life that’s perfectly suited to holidays. Then there’s Jamaica with its beautiful colonial forts, the lost Mayan city at Chichen Itza in Mexico, or the vibrant reefs and powder-soft sands of the Dominican Republic.

But if that all feels a bit too exotic, there are plenty of options closer to home that fit the bill perfectly.

Package holidays to Spain might not feel comparable to the Caribbean but this magical country has more than its fair share of qualities. It’s got fabulous beaches with glittering golden sands, crystal clear shores and bubbly resorts with everything from cheesy karaoke and 80s discos to Irish pubs and chic wine bars. Spain is also home to bustling Barcelona and fabulous Valencia, two prime city break territories, and the lovely Balearics - a collection of sun-drenched islands with just about everything to see and do under the sun.

Europe really does sum up the meaning of ‘diversity’. Beaches and cities aside, you’ll also find sprawling mountain ranges such as the Alps - perfect for winter fun on the slopes or summer days spent walking amongst wildflower meadows, tackling hairpin bends or gazing across spectacular scenery.

At home or away, when it comes to holidays there really is a world of choice. It’s just a matter of finding your favorite.
