Good to go: Bodrum, Montego Bay, Lanzarote

Aegean appeal

A four-hour flight from the UK transports you to Bodrum, on Turkey's Aegean coast. The resort's picturesque harbour offers rows of seafood restaurants and a hilltop castle to explore. Mark Warner has a week-long stay at the Sea Garden Beach Resort, just outside of the town, with BA flights and all-inclusive accommodation for £520 per person departing this Saturday.

Jet to Jamaica

Early November signals the return of a more stable climate to the Caribbean after the unpredictable hurricane season. Sandals is offering a 10-night luxury break in Jamaica's Montego Bay area, at Sandals Carlyle Inn, for £1,195 person on an all-inclusive basis. The deal includes Virgin Atlantic flights from Gatwick on 15 November and transfers. Book by 31 October.

Call of the Canaries

Lanzarote's striking volcanic scenery, lava fields and stylish haciendas render its unsavoury reputation a thing of the past. Add the bonus of a pleasant year-round climate and quiet beaches, such as those around Papagayo point in the south, and its appeal increases. Low Cost Holidays has a seven-night stay on the island at the self-catering Aparthotel Blue Sea Costa Teguise Gardens for £197 per person, with flights from Luton on 10 November.
