Lizzi’s Luxury Edit: Summer, autumn, and winter holidays

I was doing a quote this week for a client who wanted to go away in mid-July this year. She was asking if she should wait or book now. I was a little surprised, as I assumed that people knew that late deals are pretty much a thing of the past nowadays. If you are booking last minute, it’s more a question of what is still available and you’re probably going to pay through the nose for it.

So, perhaps you have made your decision to either stay home this summer and risk the UK weather, or you’ve already booked your foreign holiday? If not, always ask me and I’ll try to find you something.

So, hard as it is to look ahead to the October half term and Christmas holidays, this is what you should be focusing on now. If your holiday dates are non-flexible, even more so. Popular dates sell out really quickly and as airlines always have some seats at a lower fare, these will be the first to disappear. Nearer the time, it’s then a scramble to grab the next best fares, or in the case of the premium economy or business class seats, see if there are any seats left at all!

October half term is often perceived as a tricky one if you are looking for hot weather. People sometimes assume that the Caribbean is off-bounds due to the hurricane season, but don’t necessarily dismiss it. There are islands outside the hurricane belt. The Middle East is a great choice as fine weather is usually guaranteed, and if Dubai is not your thing or you’ve been many times before, do ask me about other Emirates and Oman, which have so much to offer and are diverse. Some Greek islands have stayed hot up to the end of October in recent years.

Popular choices for the winter are family trips to Lapland to see Father Christmas, the festive markets in European cities and of course, the Caribbean, for the good weather. Further afield, an African safari or a trip Down Under to see the relatives are also good choices.

And now, here are a selection of offers I think you’ll love!*
