With Christmas done and dusted for another year and the talk already turning to New Year’s resolutions, now may be the perfect time to take advantage of the sales and get planning your 2019 getaway.
With so many tour operators and locations to choose from, travel sales shopping can be a tad overwhelming. Luckily I have you covered with my pick of the best travel sales of the moment. So grab a cuppa and your nearest tin of Quality Street, sit back and and bag yourself a travel bargain.
New York is always a good idea, and in selected dates in February and March 2019, Virgin Atlantic are currently offering return flights from £277.42 per person. Insane! Make like Kevin McAllister, wrap up in your biggest duvet coat and explore some of the city’s biggest and best landmarks. They are also offering significant savings on flights to places like Boston, Hong Kong and Delhi.
Flight Centre is currently offering up to 35% off airfares until the end of January. As the world’s number one Australia travel specialist, now could be the chance to finally book that trip of a lifetime to the land down under. Whether marvelling at the Sydney Harbour Bridge, finding Nemo in the Great Barrier Reef or soaking up the surfer lifestyle in Byron Bay, Australia is one big bucket list vacation. Currently, you can save over £600 when you book a 16 day trip along the Great Ocean Road – flights, hotel and experiences included all for around £2,179pp!
Having made a name for themselves for their outstanding premium economy service, Air New Zealand have earned their stripes as one of the best airlines in 2018. As if I needed another reason to book with them, they are currently offering sale prices on both their LA and New Zealand flights. A return flight from London to Auckland is now available from £781pp and a round-trip from London to Los Angeles is available from £329pp.
BA have some great deals across the board but you could save ££ by booking a city break to Europe this spring/summer. From now until 31st January, you can book a 2 night city break to places like Rome or Barcelona from £99pp.
Luxury holiday experts KUONI are boasting their biggest sale of the year with some whopping savings to match. Save £1,398 per couple when booking a luxury Antigua break or save £984 per couple on a boutique hotel break to Koh Samui, Thailand. My favourite deal of the site is an eight-night South Africa city and safari break from £1999 (saving around £780 per couple).
If package holidays are more your thing, TUI is the place to go for the very best deals on the market. There are currently some amazing savings on holidays to sun spots like Lanzarote and Gran Canaria but this 5* B&B experience in Portugal really caught my eye. You can currently save over £400.
