Saturday 12 October 2013
Lap up the warm waters of the Caribbean on the Mayan Riviera in Mexico, then take to them on board Norwegian Dawn for an 11-night trip with Virgin Holidays for £999pp. Departing 3 December, it includes return flights from Gatwick, four nights' all-inclusive at the Occidental Grand Xcaret resort, transfers and seven nights' full-board on the cruise ship as it visits Mexico, Florida, Honduras and Belize (virginholidayscruises.co.uk).
The sun is shining on Gran Canaria, with temperatures currently in the mid-20Cs, which is where ebookers is offering a week's holiday for £440pp next month. The deal includes flights from Glasgow on 18 November and seven nights' B&B at the four-star Barcelo Margaritas set just behind the sand of Playa del Inglés in the southern resort of Maspalomas (ebookers.com).
Dash to Disney
There's still time to book a half-term holiday. Leger Breaks is offering four nights at Disneyland Paris for £599 per adult and £199 per under-12. The price includes return coach travel from several UK departure points on 28 October, four nights' room-only accomodation at Disney's Hotel Santa Fe and two days' admission to the park (tothemagic.co.uk).
An extra lift
The temperature is falling, the ski season approaches – and early bookers are being rewarded by Crystal. Book a holiday to any resort in its portfolio by Tuesday 21 October and you'll get the opportunity to buy a lift pass with a second at half price. The offer is valid for seven-day holidays departing 4 January to 9 February (crystalski.co.uk).
