Thomas Cook has thousands of affordable winter holiday deals, with something for everyone. From all-inclusive family breaks to luxury getaways, you can escape the winter dreariness by treating yourself to a holiday in the sun. Here are a few ideas to get you in the mood.
Best Deals For Families
The sultry Mediterranean waters of Spain and the Balearic Islands could beckon this winter. There are lots of destinations to choose from so check out our discount deals and find a peaceful place to submerge yourself in Moorish culture, tapas and golden sands.Further afield are the family friendly destinations of Turkey and Greece and with plenty of Thomas Cook hotels organising activities for younger kids, the parents can relax and enjoy the laid back atmosphere.
If you have older children, you might fancy a cycling holiday in Portugal or Southern France, or why not try pony trekking through Bulgaria.
Best Deals for Couples
Thomas Cook has a vast range of affordable deals on romantic getaways for winter. The Latino spirit of Cuba and Mexico are ideal for couples wanting something a little different and with exotic cocktails, sexy dances and sultry Spanish guitar rhythms – what’s not to fall in love with?
Italy has it all too – romantic cities, decadent and delicious cuisine, and vast, varied landscapes to explore. Imagine floating under arched bridges on a gondola in Venice, or sipping chilled Prosecco as you watch the world go by in Naples or Florence.
Best Deals for a Winter Break
Reykjavik in Iceland is an unusual destination, but with the Northern Lights, hot geothermal spas and whale watching tours, the 3-hour flight is well worth it.
Alternatively, head for Barcelona, a vibrant city boasting a wealth of culture with its Gaudi architecture, world-class museums and eminent art galleries. The sounds of street artists echo through wide open squares and narrow cobbled alleys. It really is a city you can immerse yourself in.
Best Deals for Activity Lovers
For an all-inclusive winter activity experience, Cyprus is full of surprises – from mountain climbing to scuba diving and surfing, or maybe you prefer to explore its centuries-old castles and ruins.
Sharm El Sheikh on the Red Sea is a scuba diver’s paradise – with reefs and wrecks to explore accompanied by vibrantly coloured fish; camel races across the desert and sleeping under the stars. There are also plenty of organised activities for children.
For a whole host of adventures, try Croatia; canoeing, mountain biking, horse riding, and canyoning, followed by relaxing on the warm sandy beaches or sailing around the islands – you won’t get bored, that’s for sure.
Best deals for Christmas Markets
Home of Santa, Lapland is top of every child’s (and adult’s) list for a Christmas destination. Laying on everything from sleigh rides and watching the Northern Lights to reindeer lassoing and meeting Father Christmas himself, the action centres around Levi, and even includes a festival gala meal.
For something closer to home, a short hop to Bruges is a delightful choice for unique gifts and getting in the holiday spirit in the city’s famous Christmas markets. The marché de noël on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées in Paris is well known for its stunning illuminations and regional, handmade crafts with a Gallic flavour. And you can save some money for gift shopping when you book with Thomas Cook and take advantage of our excellent discount voucher deals.
