Where and when to go on holiday

The Christmas decorations have been put back in the loft for another year. And now is the perfect time to grab a big dose of sunshine. Crowds are fewer, destinations are quieter, so if you’re looking for relaxation after such a busy period, our winter sun holidays will help you recharge.

The days are short and the weather’s chilly – time for a holiday? We think it’s a great time to travel – particularly if you want to escape those cold, dark nights. We’ve selected some of our favourite places to holiday in February.

Spring is finally approaching. You can avoid the searing heat of summer in India or Egypt by travelling now or get the best chance of seeing the Northern Lights in Iceland.

Fed up with dodging April showers? Jet off to somewhere new instead. Stay close to home and enjoy the spring flowers of Madeira, see the cherry blossoms in Japan, or maybe go all-out with an epic adventure in Jordan.

May is one of our most popular holiday months... The weather in southern Europe is warming up nicely, so it’s the perfect time to explore somewhere a little closer to home. Discover the romance of Italy or culture of Spain. Further afield, the balmy temperatures make May an ideal month to travel to North America and North Africa.

It’s the start of the summer season – but where’s best to holiday in June? Warmer weather in the northern hemisphere means it’s a great time to explore, whether you’re dreaming of ancient Incan ruins in the Andes or the glistening Mediterranean. We have some great options...

Want to know where’s best to holiday in July? Explore Europe, where summer’s in full swing; journey to the rainforests of Madagascar; or relax on the paradisical beaches of Mauritius.

For some, August is all about beach holidays. But if you’re looking for a little more action than a fly-and-flop break, where’s best to visit in August? From amazing wildlife and festivals to scenic beauty, there’s plenty to inspire your next adventure.

September is one of our most popular travelling months – the summer holiday crowds have departed, and temperatures are that little bit cooler (making walking and sightseeing a lot more comfortable). But where should you choose for a holiday in September? We could pick out dozens of fantastic destinations, but here are some of our top recommendations.

Come October, autumn has well and truly arrived in the UK. If you’re looking to escape the dark mornings and moody skies, where’s best to travel? You might want to go whale watching in New Zealand or see the paddy fields of Vietnam.

Winter has arrived, and the dark, colder nights are drawing in. Instead of thinking about all the festive planning for the next month, why not seek out tropical adventures and unique festivals? When it comes to November holidays, there are plenty of exciting options.

Perhaps you fancy a different way to celebrate a traditional Christmas this year, or want to treat yourself to a pre-Christmas adventure or break? And who would blame you? It’s a busy time – so here are some of our recommendations if you decide to do something a little different.
