With 40 years in travel and hundreds of experts ready to help you realise your dream holiday.
The Christmas holidays give everyone the chance to get together – but that doesn’t mean you have to stay at home. If you’re looking to make the festive season extra special, going abroad is the perfect way to do it. You could go ice-skating in New York, enjoy beach barbecues in Australia, or go sight-seeing in Japan. Whether you’re searching for a city break in a winter wonderland or a sun-soaked Christmas somewhere tropical, we’ll help you find the perfect getaway.
It’s easy to see why spending the Christmas holidays abroad can be more appealing than staying at home. There’s no family debate about who should host, the Christmas dinner is taken care of, and you can spend the day relaxing in a beautiful hotel. Plus, it’s nice to try something a little different. If your idea of Christmas abroad involves a beach, you’ve got a number of options. Generally, the further away you go in December, the better the weather will be. Far-flung countries like Australia and Thailand see hot, sunny days with temperatures in the thirties. If you’d prefer slightly cooler weather – but still much warmer than the UK – you could consider spending Christmas in Dubai or Florida.
Wherever you decide to go, a hot Christmas abroad gives you the chance to experience a very different day. Christmas in Australia is all about having a Boxing Day barbecue on the beach, while Christmas in Dubai revolves around decadent meals and extravagant cocktails. You can swap your turkey for tacos when you spend Christmas in Mexico, or enjoy a Christmas Day safari in South Africa.
But we understand that spending Christmas abroad doesn’t always mean lying on a beach – for some, only a cold Christmas will do. So, if you want to get away for Christmas without going somewhere hot, we’ve got you covered. If you go to New York, for instance, there’s a high chance you’ll get a white Christmas, while Japan is the perfect choice for a very different cultural experience.
