Holidays Please – Reasons to Travel in December

We are now into winter… If you are therefore looking for any excuse to escape the country for a long weekend, week away or even 2 weeks holiday then here are some ideas which might push you over the edge…

If you are looking to get a bargain then early December provides some fantastic deals and discounts before Christmas and New Year. New York is a favourite this time of year for a long weekend and a change. Do some Christmas shopping to get your friends and family something a bit more special.

If it is winter-sun you are looking for then why not travel to where it’s summer!? Australia will make sure you have a natural glow over the Party period and with the 2010 Ashes kicking off from November through to January you can get involved in the action!

Ski Season! I find it funny that when you go skiing you probably do more experience in that one period than you have done or will do for the rest of the year. I however always feel refreshed and glowing after a ski trip (that is apart from the few bumps and bruise I tend to accumulate on a trip)

Egypt is a great destination this time of year. You will find that it isn’t too busy and most people opt to save their money for after Christmas.  A review from one of our clients who went on holiday in December to Egypt said ‘The weather was in the middle to low 70F with a moderate breeze and no rain. It was perfect for a Christmas holiday.’ Temperatures will average around 20C, and the nights are quite cool so you will have no problems sleeping.

The Caribbean is also an ideal holiday destination this time of year, and with the risk of hurricanes and tropical storms over, temperatures will also average around 20C. The Caribbean provides some great pre Christmas events such as the Christmas Markets in Jamaica.
