Romantic breaks

Looking for a romantic getaway with your loved one? There’s plenty of options to consider, and we’ll help you find one that fits your needs. From quiet getaways in southern European villas to in awe-inspiring trips to cities all around the world, we’ve got you covered. With us, that dream of sailing through the streets of Venice, cruising down the Danube in central Europe or relaxing on beaches as far as the eye can see in the Caribbean can finally become reality.

Family beach excursions

No time for a romantic break? Then look at a family holiday– we have a wide variety of options that will be sure to keep the kids entertained while the adults can relax and join in on the fun whenever they like. With us, you can expect locations filled to the brim with places to explore and enjoy with the family, like towering water parks, beaches that stretch across the horizon offering a wide variety of activities to get involved in, like paragliding, snorkelling, and sailing among many others which everyone is sure to enjoy.

One of our popular locations is the Mediterranean- this is an amazing place to visit due to the guaranteed sunshine and laidback, friendly locals. Additionally, it has tons of amusements and resorts, so you’ll be able to find a trip here that suits your family’s needs with ease. As a bonus, it’s also an easy trip for the kids due to short flight times from the UK (2-3 hours), so you needn’t worry about keeping your children occupied for too long.

For those with older children who aren’t afraid to venture a little further, a trip to Mexico, Greece, Cyprus or even the coast of Turkey to see the Aegean Sea might be the ideal option- these offer the same beautiful weather as the Mediterranean but different locales to suit your family’s tastes.

Lanzarote, Canary Islands

Another family favourite for year-long sunshine

Costa Del Sol, Spain

With a flight a little over two hours, the Costa Del Sol is a great, nearby spot for all families.


Looking to take the family a little further away? Mexico has become a popular choice with UK families- We think you'll enjoy it too!

Keeping the kids entertained is half the battle on a holiday- A resort like this will take that stress away easily.

Winter holiday

Who doesn’t want to fly off when the weather gets miserable? Avoid the dark and gloomy nights and take a break from work to live a little. Are sunny breaks not your thing? With us, you can try a different kind of break- increasingly popular these days are winter holidays; you can get the adrenaline pumping and go snowboarding or skiing to escape reality, even if its just for a little while!
So, whether you want to head for the slopes of Tremblant, Chamonix or the Austrian Alps, we can make your winter activity break a reality. Swiss, Austrian, and French chalets are popular at this time of year so we would always advise booking well in advance.

Which type of Cruise?

A cruise holiday can be the pinnacle of luxury. We have sea cruises that visit several countries and ports over the cruise itinerary, river cruises that leave you awe-struck by the surrounding locales or just on one with multiple stops along the way. Despite their differences, there are excursions on every cruise to famous tourist spots in Europe and even beyond along the way, but you can pick and choose which ones you want to venture on. The rest of the time you can sit back on deck and enjoy sipping a cocktail while knowing your day will be stress-free and relaxing or full of partying and fun, whichever one suits you.
If you’re looking for something a little different to luxurious cruise ships or river boats, you also have the option of amazing tall ships which are a fabulous way of seeing the seas and locations around the world. Because they’re smaller than a typical cruise ships, they can visit less populated spots on the itinerary to give you that feeling of relaxation.

Bulgaria’s Black Sea Coast is also proving to be an up-and-coming contender on this scene. Other favourite destinations – especially as the colder winter months approach – are the Costa del Sol in Spain and Mexico’s Cancun. Another option could be visiting a range of places aboard an Adult Only Cruise!

You’ll meet the elves and reindeers and even get the chance to go husky sledding. And, if you’re lucky enough, you might even spot the Northern Lights.
Alternatively, grown-ups can have their own themed holiday in the form of a safari in Kenya. Sleep in a luxury tent and dine under the stars while enjoying the opportunity to spot some of the world’s most beautiful wild animals throughout your stay. It’s a world away from what you may be used to and is exactly why this type of holiday is one that’s loved by everyone who embarks on it. So don’t be afraid to experiment, as these types of holidays can be very enjoyable for anyone and everyone.
