With Christmas fast approaching, a growing number of people are saying, “stuff the turkey”, and jetting off on one of our low cost holidays instead. Cheap Christmas holidays abroad are becoming an ever more popular alternative to spending Yuletide at home. Whether you want to decamp to warmer climes for the entire Christmas and New Year period, or book a cheap weekend at the European Christmas Markets, we at Coop Travel have the perfect deal for you.
A large number of last minute holidays at Christmas are booked with the idea of having a real, traditional white Christmas. Many parts of Northern Europe are oozing with the essence of Yuletide, from the gently falling snow to the scent of baked gingerbread. One way to enjoy all this – and still be home on Christmas day – is to book one of the many European holidays centred around the Christmas Markets. Tallinn, Prague, Bruges, Copenhagen, Cologne, Vienna; the list goes on. These beautiful cities have been holding traditional Christmas markets since the Middle Ages, so they know how to get things right, carols and all.
Staying with the snow scene, one of the top family holidays for the festive season is a trip to Lapland to see Santa. This needs to be booked early, although Santa’s often included on last minute holidays to see the Northern Lights, along with other activities like dog sledding and snowshoe hiking. Other ideas for cheap Christmas holidays include ski breaks and winter cruises. The latter can mean anything from a luxury cruise round the Canary Islands, to an Icebreaker voyage into the Arctic Circle.
If you want low cost holidays in the sun this Christmas, we at Coop Travel have plenty to choose from. How about last minute holidays in the Spanish Costa Brava or Costa del Sol? Alternatively, you could book a Christmas cruise to the Caribbean or Canary Islands, or a beach holiday in Morocco or Egypt. Whether you’re booking for Christmas or 2012, holidays with us are always a bargain.
