Travel for Less: Holiday Deals on Last Minute Getaways
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
January to March may seem like an unusual time to choose to holiday. After the expense of Christmas and the slump following New Year, the remaining winter months are an excellent time to look online, find holiday deals and take your pick from the many cheap last minute holidays available.
Although the winter months generally rule out holidays to short haul destinations such as mainland Spain, and many of the Greek Islands, there are a number of other options to consider for a spot of out of season sun.
Goa, the Caribbean and the relaxing region of Clearwater in Florida are fabulous year round options. Although slightly more costly than many short haul holidays, all inclusive packages to these exotic escapes will you ensure you spend less while you are away, without the worry of food, drink and some entertainment costs.
Alternatively, opting for a week or two in the Canary Islands will cut the basic cost of your holiday right down. Average temperatures during January to April in the Canaries hover around 20 to 25 degrees C, ideal daytime weather for kicking back and rejuvenating with a cocktail in hand.
Regardless of the type of holiday you enjoy, last minute holidays here are varied, with something to suit every type of traveller. While Tenerife and Lanzarote are the liveliest of the four islands, Gran Canaria is an authentic Canarian retreat, while Fuerteventura is famed for its beaches.
To get the best price on your winter sun break, be sure to travel in term time, and be flexible with your flight dates and times. Start the hunt today, and look online for your ideal last minute package holiday in the sun. Discounted holiday websites are a great place to start searching.
