Get me out of here

Now... Yoga in Marrakech

Get fit and soak up some sun on a week's yoga break in Marrakech with Healthy Options. The trip departs on 8 November. It costs £895, including accommodation, classes and airport transfers. Flights extra; from Gatwick they are likely to be around £250 return.

Soon... A hip time in New York

January is low season for flights to New York. Virgin Holidays and Hip Hotels offer three nights in Manhattan for £852 per person, including flights from Heathrow and a room-only stay at The Surrey. The price is for a 12 January departure, based on two sharing.

Later... Caribbean sunshine

British Airways has a new non-stop service from Gatwick to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Rates for all-inclusive holidays in May or June 2015 are low – typically £771 per person for a week at the four-star Occidental Grand Punta Cana. Over Christmas, the price is twice as high.
