When Is The Best Time To Travel?

Our ‘month by month’ guide is here to help you decide on the best month and destination is for your holiday.

The time of year you want to travel on holiday will often help us decide on the best trip for you.  Many of our featured holidays can be taken year round, but some are very seasonal and vary in terms of local weather conditions depending on the type of holiday you are travelling for.  If you are tied to a particular month for your choice of holiday and need to know what the options are, have a browse through the site for some holiday inspiration or contact us to search for you. Our summer is not summer in other parts of the world, so the best time to travel to Cape Town (for example) would definitely not be in July – August when it can be cold, wet and windy! If you are travelling on any kind of safari or natural history holiday, often the months which some travel companies suggest avoiding (e.g rainy season) could actually be the best time to travel for you if you are a keen birder, love photography or want to see lots of baby animals (and luxury safari camps are often half peak season price!).

Get in touch and we will help you chose the best time of the year to travel for your perfect holiday.  Call 01728 748209, use the live chat or fill out the enquiry form now.

My recent month-long trip to Australia and New Zealand lived up to TWJ's ubiquitous high standard of organisation, value for money and excellent quality accommodation. The Indian-Pacific train from Perth to Sydney was a definite highlight! Jules and Mags are fun and enthusiastic to deal with and I would heartily recommend them for their bespoke holiday service.

Highlights included having sun-downers, wherever we were at sunset was great fun - the guides had packed our favourite drinks plus ice and lemon slices in a cool box! Seeing 100's of Hippos sitting all day in the river, playing their "trombones" then getting out at sunset for munchies.

You listened to what we wanted and then reacted accordingly, thank you. The hotels in India were excellent, the drivers were great and the overnight boat trip on the backwaters in Kerala was special. Hotel in Varanasi was excellent even though alcohol free and vegetarian! The guides were good especially in Varanasi and Fort Cochi.
