Ah, holidays. It’s the annual escape that we look forward to all year, when all that saving, working and scrimping finally pays off and we can reward ourselves with a week or two on a beach, relaxing by the pool, taking in magnificent scenery and eating out every night – just because we can!
If you’re hoping to jet off this summer, now is a great time to start hunting for deals on your ideal getaway. Many tour operators advertise discounted breaks in the New Year and with the summer season still a few months off, you’ve got plenty of time to save some spending money and pay off the cost of your holiday between now and your departure date.
For instance, Thomas Cook holidays 2013 are on sale now and the deals are in full swing. There are all sorts of tempting offers such as low deposits, a flat reduction on summer departures, special room upgrades, and of course the ever-popular late deals. If you thought late deals weren’t worth it, think again. You can shave hundreds of pounds off the original cost of the holiday by booking late – anything up to a week or two prior to the departure date – and by being as flexible as possible with your holiday criteria.
And it’s not just the usual suspects like Spain, Greece and Tunisia included in the sale prices. From cheap Dominican Republic holidays and low-cost getaways to Mexico’s Caribbean Coast, to family fun in Florida and last-second getaways to Goa and Thailand, there’s a whole host of magnificent destinations on offer. So it certainly pays to do your homework and spend some time scouring the tour operators’ websites for the latest deals and offers.
It all helps to make things that little bit easier, and to help ensure your 2013 getaway is an unforgettable experience for all the right reasons..
