I hate to say it, but there are only 10 weeks to go until Christmas, and if you dread the idea of shopping for presents that nobody wants, cooking for family members who you haven’t seen since last Christmas, and listening to Jingle bells from now until January, now is the time to book your winter sun holiday!
There are some fantastic Christmas Holiday deals available online right now, and if you weigh-up the costs of staying at home with booking a winter break, you could find yourself better off in Mauritius, than you would be staying at home!
So leave the Turkey and Sherry Trifle to someone else this year, pack your flip-flops, and treat yourself to a Christmas present you really want, with a trip to one of our Top 10 Christmas Hot Spots…
