HOLIDAYS
List
  • We want to keep you in the know when it comes to travel trends, so here’s our top list of what’s going to big in 2020…

     

    Island hopping

    Not content with heading off to one destination, we reckon holidaymakers will be keen to tick off multiple destinations on one trip.

    Fancy it?
    Sail around the clusters of Croatia and tick off gems like Brac Island or take time out in Thailand and hop from one slice of tropical paradise to another in Phuket and Koh Phi Phi. If that sounds too much like hard work, relax in hippy hangout Ibiza and take a thirty-minute ferry over to the secluded island of Formentera for the day.

     

    Alternative destinations

    We know you probably want to visit somewhere that’s not all over your Instagram feed, especially as loads of big-hitter cities are struggling to cope with overtourism. So, why not do your bit to help reduce the impact on these cities and explore somewhere new and crowd-free instead?

    Try up and coming Montenegro, with pine clad hills, gushing canyons and vast national parks. Or, dip into honey coloured Malta and explore Valetta, 2018’s European Capital of Culture.

    Flashpacking

    While 2018 was all about glamping in yurts and praying the rain would stay away, 2019 is about backpacking in style a.k.a flashpacking. Forget cramped hostels and heavy rucksacks, though.

    Keen? Our Multi-Destination holidays offer up the chance to split your time between more than one place while staying in fancy hotels.  Think traveller vibe, luxury surroundings. So if you fancy Morocco but can’t decide where you want to go, pair up bustling bazaars in Marrakech with beach time in Agadir.

    Budget-savvy breaks

    According to ABTA, holidaymakers are savvier than ever. More and more people are booking further ahead to secure the perfect holiday, and keeping a closer eye on budgets. Wondering how else to save? Almost half of people surveyed by ABTA have taken a package holiday in the past 12 months – making it the most popular style of break. We reckon this is down to the value it provides, with most people finding it’s easier to save with a fixed budget. It’s lucky, then, that First Choice offers all types of wallet-friendly breaks, with board options from Self Catering to All Inclusive.
