Holidays to the Channel Islands 2017 / 2018
Located in the English Channel, the cosmopolitan Channel Islands have both British and French influence. You will also find a lot of German history throughout the islands - a remnant of the German occupation of the islands during the 2nd World War. The islands have a fascinating history and there are many places of interest to visit during a holiday to any of the Channel Islands. At Co-operative Travel, we offer a great choice of cheap holidays to Jersey and Guernsey both in and out of season.
The Bailiwick of Jersey is the largest of the Channel Isles and, like Guernsey, has been under the protection of the British Crown since 1066. With hot Mediterranean summers, mild winter temperatures and a low annual rainfall, Jersey and Guernsey package holidays are a popular option at any time of year, with a year-round calendar of events and cheap flights available - especially from the Midlands and London. During the summer months, bargain holidays to Guernsey and Jersey are a popular choice for families. Families can enjoy spacious, sandy beaches, clean safe swimming waters and the annual Festival of the Flowers. In the autumn, people book Jersey holidays for the Tennerfest – a food festival celebrating the fusion of English and French flavours which perfectly describes Jersey cuisine.
