Follow the Sun this Winter!

Fed up with the miserable weather? Fancy some sun? Don’t wait until next summer - many are now opting for winter holidays in the sun, beating the crowds and soaking up those warming rays!

Consider the following for a great break...


A popular Mediterranean destination with a daily average of 7 hours winter sunshine; you can’t go wrong! Whether you are a sun seeker or an explorer, with its popular beaches, Cyprus has something for everyone.

Dominican Republic:

Often referred to as the ‘endless summer’ locale, this is a great place to visit. With low rainfall and winter temperatures reaching 28°C, it’s a great place for sun worshippers. Whether you want to party Latin style or enjoy the fantastic beaches and the laid-back Caribbean life – the Dominican Republic is the place to be!


Great weather, a feast for sightseers and great value for money, Egypt is a popular destination for those in search of some winter sun. Relax in Sharm el Sheikh or Hurghada, visit the Pyramids at Giza, or head further south to explore the tombs and temples in Luxor.


For perfect winter sun, Florida has the weather and a range of activities to keep the whole family entertained from Disneyland and water parks, to hiking and canoeing through the Everglades. Orlando, in particular, is buzzing, full of top quality hotels, shops, restaurants and scores of tourist facilities. Family fun in the sun for one and all!

Sri Lanka:

A tropical paradise destination on the Indian Ocean, this ‘Resplendent Isle’ has now become an established and popular winter sun destination. Enjoy the rich culture, fabulous beaches and breathtaking scenery on offer. Make a point to visit the elephant orphanage in Pinnawala for an unforgettable experience.

If you’re lucky enough to escape to a dream-filled white winter destination, don’t forget to book your travel insurance cover as soon as you book your trip - it may prove to be invaluable.
