What type of winter holiday’s best for you?


Sun, ski or city break – which will you choose for your winter holiday?

Beat those winter blues and sub-zero UK temperatures and get away to somewhere new. Think immersing yourself in a different culture, soaking up some winter sunshine or strolling the streets of a city’s fascinating old town. You might even fancy hitting the slopes!

If you’re planning to get away but still need a bit of inspiration, then look no further! Check out our range of holidays and find one that’s perfect for you…


Winter sun

If the thought of not seeing the sun for a good few months sounds awful to you, then booking a winter sun holiday could be the perfect solution.

Getting away in the winter months means big resorts are much less crowded, so you’ll be seeing them at their most authentic. You won’t be fighting for that dream spot to lay down your beach towel. Temperatures are generally still up in the high teens, so sightseeing and exploring is made much more comfortable.


Why not try: The Canary Islands?

Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura are all great picks for a winter getaway. From spectacular natural settings to buzzing nightlife, there’s something across this archipelago to suit all.



If the sprinkling of snow in the UK doesn’t quite hit the mark for you, with our ski flights, you can take your pick from hundreds of resorts across the Alps, Catalan Pyrenees and Andorra.

Not forgetting the lively après-ski activities, you can take part in after a day on the slopes. We’re talking live DJs, alpine-themed parties and spectacular firework displays. And if you’re in the mood for a warming Swiss fondue and generous helping of fragrant mulled wine, you’ve certainly come to the right place!


Why not try: Geneva or Grenoble.

Geneva is sandwiched between majestic Mont Blanc and the Alps, and you can expect to find some of Europe’s top ski resorts here. There’s Verbier, Zermatt, Tignes and Flaine to name just a few.

Over in France, Grenoble boasts stunning scenery filled with flowing rivers and towering mountains. Iconic Chamonix is one of the top picks here, with its all-abilities slopes and vibrant town centre.


City break

From the twinkling lights of Prague to the pretty streets of Paris, stunning cities provide the ideal backdrop to a winter getaway. In winter though, you’ve got the perfect excuse to wrap up and explore the sights with a cup of something warm and tasty.

Looking to get into the festive spirit while you’re away? Choose a city that’s famed for its Christmas markets and you’ll be transported into a scene that looks like it’s been plucked straight from a fairytale.


Why not try: Budapest, Vienna or Krakow.

Hungary’s capital goes all out during the winter. A huge ice rink takes over the city park and Budapest’s thermal baths are guaranteed to keep you warm on those chilly nights.

Over in Austria, Vienna’s Christmas markets certainly give other cities a run for their money. Or why not try Krakow, with its enchanting Old Town streets filled with market stalls and festive cheer?
