October Half Term Holidays
If you’ve got school-age children, the chances are your family holidays have to tie in with school holidays. This can make it hard to find cheap deals in the summer months - but why worry, when there are so many cheap October half term holidays available? We at Coop Travel specialise in last minute holidays to Portugal, Greece, Spain, the Canary Islands and many other popular destinations. Whether you want a cheap break in Orlando, or a beach holiday snorkelling in Cyprus, we have the solution.
It’s official – in the holiday trade, the summer season now lasts from May to October, so if you thought it was too late to book your family holidays, think again. October is a mild month even in the UK, so imagine what it must be like on the Costa del Sol, Turkey or Greece! These are just some of the places you could book 2013 holidays during the October half term.
The October half term tends to be a quiet time for family holidays, with the winter sun holiday bookings yet to get going, and the season coming to an end on the Mediterranean beaches. But that means plenty of low cost holidays in areas like Turkey, Cyprus and Majorca – three places where it’s sunny and lively all year round.
One of the top places to book family holidays during half term is the Canary Islands. Part of Spain, but located off the Moroccan coast, last minute holidays are available at rock-bottom price in Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. With their dramatic, volcanic landscape, sweeping beaches and range of land and water activities they’re the ideal destination for active families.
Another popular destination for cheap October holidays is the Algarve, in Southern Portugal. Boasting beautiful beaches, fascinating heritage sites and a wide range of sporting activities, both villa and hotel accommodation is widely available. We at Coop Travel also recommend checking our cheap October half term Holidays in the Costa Brava, Ibiza and Majorca, and Greek islands like Crete and Corfu.
