Todayâ€™s holidaymakers have never had it so good. Yes – the cost of living has gone up, the Euro is at crisis point and many of us can barely afford the taxi to the airport, let alone a week-long trip. But somehow we always manage to cobble together just enough to see us through, and when you reach your final destination, you know itâ€™s certainly money well spent.
Thanks to the huge array of package holidays, weekend getaways, city breaks, beach weeks and low-cost scheduled flights available, there is a tantalising choice of destinations that can suit virtually every taste and budget. From Kos to Croatia, Malta to Morocco; city to coast and lake to mountain, there are thousands upon thousands of different options available to appeal to holidaymakers from all walks of life.
For those who like stress-free trips where everything is arranged, package holidays are usually the best option. Fly away safe in the knowledge that your flights, accommodation and local transfers are all taken care of, and youâ€™ll also get a locally-based representative to help you during your stay. One such package holiday operator is Thomas Cook, a UK-based holiday giant thatâ€™s been in the business for decades. You can find Thomas Cook holidays online, making it easy to whittle down the options and compare prices, or pop into a high street branch to discuss your needs face-to-face.
For those who like to go their own way, youâ€™ll find a seemingly endless choice of flights from dozens of UK airports, travelling here, there and everywhere. Take your pick. A weekend in Rome? A fortnight in the Caribbean? A cheap jaunt to the Spanish coast? The only problem youâ€™ll have is deciding where to go.
Itâ€™s all there for the taking – itâ€™s just a matter of finding your favourite.
