Temperatures above 20c can still be found in Europe – it won’t be scorching hot, but it will be pleasantly warm and there should be plenty of sunshine to enjoy.

North America.

North America

Less crowds, cheaper hotels and shorter queues at the attractions! The winter season is certainly the most desirable time to visit destinations like Hawaii and Las Vegas when temperatures are cooler.

Punta Cana.

Caribbean & South America

A tropical climate and laid back lifestyle is the perfect antidote to falling temperatures elsewhere – hovering in the high 20s, the sun blazes down for eight hours a day.

Cape Town.


This is a lovely time of year to explore the souks or sites and relax by the pool. Winter temperatures rarely fall below 20c and the nights in Africa are pleasantly cool.

Middle East.

Middle East

The Middle East has a near perfect winter-sun climate – you can expect daytime temperatures in the mid to high 20s, sunny skies and the very occasional burst of rain (if you’re lucky).

Indian Ocean.

Indian Ocean

To experience the Indian Ocean at its best, you need to relax on soft white sands, snorkel in calm waters and take in the most colourful sunsets ­– the winter months are the perfect time to do just that.


Far East & Australia

It’s not just the warmth of its people that’s particularly alluring at this time of year. A European winter is their summer – the rainy season is over, the temperatures are high and the sun shines for longer.
