Sometimes the best way to deal with gloomy winter weather is just to leave it behind! Whether you want to sneak in a relaxing break before the Christmas festivities begin or banish the January blues in the new year, a winter sun holiday is just what you need to put a smile on your face. There’s nothing more satisfying than escaping the wind and rain on a plane bound for somewhere hot, so why not book your winter sun break today?

Keep an open mind: Depending on demand, some winter sun destinations may increase in price, while others stay the same. Instead of setting your heart on a particular destination, do an ‘Anywhere’ search and check out where you can get the best price. Do a quick weather check, and get it booked!

Call several travel agents: The best way to get a good deal on a package holiday is to find the deal you want, call the holiday provider to get a quote, then call several others and ask them to beat the price for the same holiday. You can then call back the original travel agent and challenge them to match your new price.

Research cost of living: When thinking about winter sun, most of the destinations you’ll be looking at are long haul. Choose somewhere with a low cost of living like Thailand, Mexico or South Africa and you’ll spend more on flights but much less while you’re away.

Canary Islands: Just a 4-hour flight from the UK, the Canaries are the best winter sun you’ll get close to home. Located not far off the coast of Africa, the Canary Islands is a year-round destination, with temperatures of up to 25°C even in the middle of winter.

Madeira: Madeira is officially part of Portugal, but is so much further south it stays warm all year round. In the winter months it’s cool enough to do more than just lie on the beach, and with Madeira Natural Park, hiking trails and watersports on offer it’s the perfect time for an active holiday.

Florida: Florida isn’t known as the Sunshine State for nothing! With temperatures of at least 20°C even in winter and consistent sunshine, the beaches and clubs of Miami and family-friendly theme parks of Orlando should be top of the list for your next winter sun holiday.

Mexico: December to April is the best time to visit Mexico, when it’s pleasantly hot without being uncomfortable and both humidity and rainfall are at a low. Cancun and Playa Del Carmen are two of the most popular resorts, where visitors can treat themselves to luxurious all inclusive resorts and white sand beaches.

Canary Islands

Cuba

Cuba

Just below the Bahamas, Cuba is synonymous with vintage rum and cigars enjoyed in the shade of a rustic taverna. Havana may be a charming blast from a 1950s past but the coast is everything you would expect from a Caribbean retreat: turquoise seas, white sands and heavenly high temperatures.
