The Christmas exodus has begun!


It’s begun!  The heady rush of Brits going abroad to celebrate Christmas and the New Year!  It is expected that around 4 million people will depart through our airports, with approximately 1.7 million going through Heathrow alone!  With many travelling via the ferry across the English Channel and by the Channel Tunnel, this Friday (20th December) through to Christmas Eve will be the peak travel dates.

Some are seeking winter sun destinations, such as Tunisia, Dubai, the Cape Verde islands and Cuba, while others are taking advantage of the excellent snow levels in Europe – France, Switzerland and Austria being the favourites!  And if travellers aren’t going for Christmas, they are looking to welcome in the New Year in foreign lands with top European locations being Paris, Rome, Amsterdam and Dublin.

But our top coastal and holiday resorts in the UK don’t lose out either; many people will be enjoying Christmas and New Year breaks in popular destinations including Llandudno in Wales, Eastbourne in East Sussex and Torquay in Devon.

However, if you’re planning on going away or taking a break in early 2014, there are some great offers on the table!  Z Hotels are offering special rates this January, perfect for a bit of shopping at the sales!  Thomas Cook has announced flights to the Antigua and Barbados from Manchester, but if you’re looking to go a bit further, enjoy a ‘last minute booking’ rate and revel in The Gambia Experience – a truly amazing holiday!  There are also a range of offers on cruises in the Caribbean and Canary Islands, and European river cruises.

And if you’re looking for something a little bit different, and you don’t suffer from vertigo, then why not head to Chamonix in France.  3,842m above sea level is a five-sided cube, all glass, including the floor, which offers the most amazing, if not a little unsettling, views of the magnificent Mont Blanc Massif mountain range…
