Whether you want to travel to an exotic country or the (good ol') U.S. of A, flying for more than six and a half hours is bound to get you somewhere dreamy. The best way to escape the typically abysmal British weather is to sit back and relax as you're transported to a holiday destination that's far far away.
If you want to escape the cold British winter, a faraway holiday is the perfect option. Most of Europe tends to be chilly from November to February, so the blue skies and sun-warmed beaches of Mexico and Florida are pretty tempting choices around this time of year! The world is your oyster, so why not get out there and see what’s on offer?
It's nice to treat yourself once in a while and see the world from a whole perspective, so pack your bags and travel somewhere a little further afield than normal. Exotic destinations can add up quickly, but with our Deals, it might even cost you less than a European break!
When you’re looking for a holiday that’s extra special, you want to know you’re getting the best value so we pride ourselves on offering something to suit every personality and budget. Whether you’re looking for exotic beaches, luxury hotels, fascinating cultures, wonders of the world or your ultimate bucket list experience, icelolly.com are here to help with a huge range of fantastic worldwide holiday deals for you to compare.
POPULAR LONG HAUL HOLIDAY DESTINATIONS
With a huge range of all inclusive holidays, family holidays and adventure holidays, the hardest bit is not deciding whether to go, but deciding how long to stay.
The Kingdom of Far Far Away might be from Shrek Universe, but that doesn't mean you can't get your fairytale holiday in reality. You can do the hula in Hawaii, snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef, go designer shopping in Dubai, watch the ball drop in New York on New Years' Eve, meet your childhood favourites at Disneyland Florida, or if you really want to go all out, why not visit Sin City (Las Vegas)? If you can't decide, bear in mind that our most popular long haul destinations include Cancun, Dubai and Thailand.
Don't worry if you wear yourself out during your holiday as you'll be able to pop in some earplugs and catch up on your sleep on the return leg of the journey - a good 8 hours should sort you out! If you're lucky, you might even sleep off the jetlag before you get home.
HOW TO FIND CHEAP LONG HAUL HOLIDAYS
- Know the shoulder seasons: Shoulder season is the period between the high prices of peak season and the bad weather of off-peak, when you can still get pretty good weather but avoid the high price tag. It’s the best of both worlds and means you'll be able to get faraway holidays cheaper!
- Look at in-resort costs: Choose a destination with a low cost of living so you can minimise accommodation costs by booking room only and eating out for cheap. It also reduces the general pressure of saving; once you’ve paid for your flights and a hotel your required spending money will be minimal.
- Book an indirect flight: Direct flights are the fastest and most convenient option, but also the most expensive. By booking indirect flights for your faraway holidays, you can save a lot of money even if the wait between flights is only a few hours.
- Stay for longer: To make the extended flight feel worth it, long haul holidays are best enjoyed on a 2-week break; a 14-night package is usually only marginally more expensive than a 7-night one anyway.
