Winter Adults Only Holidays

Winter is a popular time for the Over 50’s to travel. The weather in the UK is dull and the heating bills increase.

Excluding the Christmas fortnight and Easter, holidays in winter are also generally cheaper. With this in mind, have put together this article full of advice to help you book your winter holiday.

Where to book:

Not all destinations are open during the winter season. The Greek Islands for example are shut. The most popular destinations booked with our clients are the Canary Islands of Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura. Cancun is our most popular long haul destination followed by Jamaica.

Despite the past trouble in Cairo, the red sea resorts of Hurghada and Sharm el sheikh in Egypt are still popular and hot for the time of year. Neither of the Red sea resorts had been affected by the protests.

Algarve and Spain are ideal for anyone seeking a cooler break away.

Why these destinations?

The main reason for these destinations being popular is the weather. The Canary Islands are closer to North Africa and offer year round sunshine. Although the north of Tenerife can be a little cloudy. For those who do not want to fly far, then the Canary Islands are just over 4 hours away.

The Caribbean destinations and Cancun have always appealed and holidaymakers with no budget can bask in the tropical sun until their hearts content.

All the destinations mentioned offer a great choice of adult’s only holidays from B&B to All inclusive.

How long to go for

This can depend on budget but we do see a high percentage of over 50 clients spending up to a month away. Sometimes they will book more than one hotel but others have booked 2, 3 – 4 weeks away at the same hotel. It can often work out cheaper being away this long than staying in the UK.

When is it best to go

October, November, February and March are the cheaper months.

Suggested hotels

The most popular hotels we sell are the Costa Canaria (Gran Canaria), Arenas del mar (Tenerife), Elba Palace (Fuerteventura) to name but a few. Cancun offers over 18 excellent hotels.

If you fancy a winter holiday, then visit for peaceful holiday that is ATOL protected.

Book your holiday to depart between November and April and you could win a Kindle Paperwhite.
