Promos galore in January

blog 1

Promos, promos and more promos! We can’t get ENOUGH of promotions in January. We’re obsessed with them. I won’t bore you with the details of every single offer because we simply haven’t got all day, but just to give you a little flavour of what’s on; up to 35{8105bc8a7da0e4ee2985a05e217cd0e1bef95b551bf8bafd62a449e444182173} off adventure tours (decent!), 50{8105bc8a7da0e4ee2985a05e217cd0e1bef95b551bf8bafd62a449e444182173} off accommodation (that’s half people, HALF) and a price freeze on insurance (that price is staying ice cool). So keep your eye’s peeled for our Colour Your World sale – it’s exclusive to January, did we mention that part?

The magnificent January flight sale

Oh my is it a glorious flight sale! So as we mentioned in the paragraph above we LOVE a promotion in January. But apparently we’re not the only ones, airlines are a sucker for a promo too and LOVE giving us a good deal on flights! So if you’ve got a bit of money left over from Christmas (hopefully granny was generous this year) and are thinking about doing a trip, then take a look online in Jan. We’ve got deals as cheap as Bangkok return from £285! Don’t hang around and wait for something better to come along later in the year, because believe us it won’t. That ties in nicely with my next paragraph …smooth.

Fashionably early

Like we said hanging around and playing it cool doesn’t pay off in the glamorous world of holiday booking. Yes you may look cool & chic at a house party but when it comes to booking flights it isn’t quite the same. The truth is, the earlier you book the better. Flight prices are dictated by availability, the longer you leave it, the more people will book, so the seats are in demand, so airlines will put up their prices. The earliest you can book a flight is 11 months in advance. So if you’ve got the vague notion of doing a trip in 2017, nail those flights in January to give you the maximum amount of time. Just remember earlier = better.
