    We know that holidays have to work around your life. There’s not always enough time – or annual leave left – for a week away. And sometimes a longer break’s just the ticket to fill up those endless school holiday weeks. So, our holidays come in a range of shapes and sizes, from short breaks to long escapes, and everything in between, too. We’ve picked out our top destinations for our most popular durations – try these on for size…

    Then take a look at our top All Inclusive deals.


    Best for three and four nights – Majorca

    Thanks to its there-in-a-jiffy flight time, Majorca’s a winner for short breaks. Hop on a plane, and you’ll be there within two and a half hours, so you won’t be wasting any time on a drawn-out journey. Once you’re there, you’ll find that this little island’s packed with things to do. Pick a trip to Palma – Majorca’s capital – and you can spend your time wandering its shop-packed streets and snapping pictures of its 800-year-old cathedral. Then, when you’re done, you can nip over to a close-by, sand-smothered beach. Alcudia’s on the other side of the island – here you’ll find a necklace of sandy beaches, a seafront restaurant scene, and Roman ruins to discover.

    Best for seven nights – Cyprus

    Your flight to Cyprus will take around four and a half hours, so – with a seven-night stay – you’ll still have plenty of time to tick off this island’s best bits. And trust us, you’ll want to see it all. Cyprus lines up a winning combination of ancient sights, good-looking beaches, and a big-name nightlife scene. In the Larnaca Region, you’ll find Ayia Napa – the up-all-night hub of the island, which attracts visitors from around the globe. The cotton-white sands of Nissi Beach also make their home in Larnaca – this stretch waves a Blue Flag, and is ideal for families. Meanwhile, in Paphos, ancient Aphrodite’s Rock and the Tombs of the Kings are the big hitters.

    Best for 10 and 11 nights – Florida

    Florida holidays are a classic culprit for leaving you wanting more. There’s so much to do here that you’ll need a few extra days to get to the bottom of your must-see list. For starters, you’ve got the theme parks. From Disney alone, there are six parks to explore – and that’s before you add Universal’s line-up to the mix. Florida’s beaches are in a league of their own, too – some of the USA’s top-rated beaches crown the coast here. We’re talking white sand backed by stellar hotels. Speaking of stellar, wannabe-astronauts can get their fix at the Kennedy Space Center. And, shopaholics will be in their element on International Drive.

    Best for 14 nights – Mexico

    If you opt for a holiday to Mexico, you’ll be looking at a flight time that totals just over 10 hours. Combine this with the time difference, and you’ll be wanting to give yourself much time as possible to adjust, relax, and make the most of everything Mexico has to offer. Whether you pick the country’s Pacific or Caribbean Coast, you’ll find that the beaches are top-drawer – days spent on the sand are a must. Meanwhile, culture-crammed sights are on the agenda, too. We’re talking world-famous sights like Chichen Itza and Tulum.
