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.

The whole week worked really well and it was a fresh adventure for us skiing in Austria for the first time. Maria Alm in particular was like a lost gem. Lovely quiet slopes and described as "Austrian slopes used by Austrian people" Zell am See itself was buzzing!
