Taking a holiday later in the year can have some fantastic benefits to those lucky enough to be able to take advantage of them. Apart from the obvious, such as being able to avoid the mad crowds at airports during the summer months and the bustle that’s often experienced in the most popular resorts in high season, there is also the fact that there are numerous fantastic deals on offer.
Many of the best package holiday deals are available for destinations with a climate that ensures all-year-round sunshine. In fact, for those who don't like the temperatures getting too hot, the autumn months can provide more attractive temperatures, rather than the scorching highs that some sun worshippers enjoy.
A later break doesn't mean that there is a lack of choice either. Most of the popular destinations are either active for a full twelve months, or at the very least carry through well past the end of the traditional 'holiday season'.
The access to information that the internet has put into almost every home means that nowadays we can all be our own travel agents, searching out the very best value deals with a few clicks on some of the most popular and reliable holiday websites such as The Co-operative Travel. But what package holiday destinations should you look towards this autumn if you are looking for a late deal?
Generations of sunseekers looking for a classic autumn beach holiday have found a perfect answer in the Canary Islands. Gran Canaria, Tenerife and Lanzarote are the Spanish administered chain of islands in the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Africa. They experience a wonderful climate which almost guarantees great beach weather for the entire year.
The stunning beaches at Puerto de la Cruz and Arona are relaxed at the best of times, but with the added benefit of a holiday later in the year their charms are even more appealing.
Turkey's extensive coastline takes in the different aspects of the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. It features beaches that are widely acknowledged to be some of best anywhere in Europe. More than three hundred separate beach locations in Turkey have been awarded the iconic 'Blue Flag' assurance of cleanliness and quality; more than anywhere else in the continent.
Of course, the more traditional Mediterranean style holiday doesn't stop with the onset of autumn either. The Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera are a fantastic choice for anyone looking for beach holidays with a familiar feel.
Ibiza has the world famous reputation as the capital of dance music and night club culture, which are factors that draw many to its shores during the peak summer months. In October the major venues end their own seasons and it is then the island’s other charms become even clearer; with the beautiful white sand beaches and stunning sunsets proving once again why Ibiza has been a haven for discerning travellers for many years.
