While we’re all about inspiring you to go on your next holiday abroad, we also know you’re after practical advice too. And the saying “timing is everything” really comes into its own when you’re thinking of planning your next trip.
Some holidays are time sensitive, like wanting to see the epic northern lights in full effect, catching the cherry blossom season in Japan or wanting to watch a humpback whale migration. You might be looking to escape the cold weather so you’ll want to know where’s hot and when. Other places are just simply brilliant to visit at any time of year.
So with this in mind, our travel experts have handpicked some recommendations to help you be in the right place at the right time. We’ve put together guides to the best holiday destinations for every month of the year - whether you’re after a beach break or sightseeing in a city - or even a combination of both.
Due to Covid-19, not all of the travel destinations in our list can be visited without restrictions. Please check the entry requirements before travel.
