Book now for summer 2020
For a different winter experience think about Lapland or Iceland and the chance to enjoy the Northern Lights and the full on snow wilderness experience.
For summer 2020 now is the time to book if you want a big villa in the Mediterranean for a family get-together (close to sea and restaurants) and if you want to include Elephant Hills on a summer trip to Thailand do not delay – they will sell out early.
One of the very best places to go in the summer is Bali – book early if you fancy exploring this part of Indonesia.
TOP TIP 1– FAMILIES – There is still some Easter and April availability for skiing.
TOP TIP 2 – FAMILIES – If a big USA summer road trip is your thing then start planning ahead now!
TOP TIP 3 – FAMILIES – Book now to get the best Christmas 2020 flight rates and availability.
TOP TIP 4– FAMILIES – There are good early booking offers for the activity resort operators for next summer – think Mark Warner, Neilson and Club Med.
September is a great month to be in the Mediterranean. Watch out though as places like the Amalfi Coast will book up fast. Greece is wonderful, and very popular.
If you know you still want to get some sun this winter then book now. Top of the popularity lists at the moment are Sri Lanka and Kerala however there are plenty of options in the Maldives and Mauritius. Equally in South-East Asia Thailand & Vietnam are in great demand, extra direct Heathrow flights to Vietnam (plus free visa at the moment) are helping but also adding a few days in Bangkok is very popular.
If you have only got a short time then how about somewhere closer to home such as Oman and Dubai – or for somewhere a bit different what about Abu Dhabi with plenty to do and some genuinely good value hotels. If you fancy Morocco, then Marrakech is a good bet from March onwards as is the coast at Agadir or Essaouira.
For somewhere a bit different how about Goa, where there’s a lot going on away from the beaches, or try the Gambia and Cape Verde – both relatively short flight times.
The winter months are the perfect times for touring holidays in many parts of the world. Asian countries, such as Burma, are at their best up until March or April, and the southern hemisphere summer for Australia, South Africa and Chile/Argentina (Patagonia) kicks in from November onwards – peak dates here book fast.
If seeing Sue Perkins’s or Joanna Lumley’s Japan trips or Judi Dench’s Borneo then start planning now for holidays in Japan or a wildlife holiday. The Nepal trekking season is well underway – travelling here is going to be one of the best ways to help the country regain its feet from the terrible earthquake a few years ago.
Further ahead the summer dates for Inca Trail permits are likely to sell out early so do not delay if you fancy the idea of doing this Peru trek in 2020.
TOP TIP – JAPAN – Cherry Blossom trips sell out well in advance and most 2020 dates are already full. What about going to see the Autumn colours instead after the Olympics or book now for Cherry Blossom on 2021, the tours are on sale!
