If there is one thing guaranteed to deliver affordable, low-cost travel, it is booking your trip well in advance of departure.
You may well be running out of time to book an Easter excursion for you and your family, but don’t worry we’re here to help. Read below for the destinations for you to consider as you look to plan the perfect spring getaway:
A destination that mixes business with pleasure like no other, the Seychelles is an affordable and accessible travel experience that should appeal to multiple demographics. Whether you want to relax in the beautiful Seychelles by visiting the gorgeous Anse Georgette Beach or fill your days with trips to iconic landmarks such as the Vallee de Mai on Praslin, this is an island nation that has everything you could want and more. The Easter also represents one of the best times to visit the Seychelles, as you look to access all-year-round sun and a tropic climate.
The Canary Islands remain an extremely popular choice for Easter travellers, thanks primarily to its favourable spring climate and popular cultural meld. With the winter rain likely to have passed by the spring and temperatures fixed at around 25 degrees Celsius, the Canary Islands can deliver a warm but comfortable climate that is ideal for families.
For those who are travelling to the Canary Islands for the first time, try visiting smaller and unspoiled islands such as La Gomera or El Hierro (as opposed to Lanzarote). These islands will be quieter and more idyllic for families, while they will also offer you access to a cheaper travelling experience.
A total of 7.3 million Brits cannot be wrong, and this is how many UK residents decided to holiday at home during the first quarter of last year. This included a number of Easter excursions, as the climate began to improve nationwide once spring took hold.
We should expect to see a similar trend this year, as families look to access cheaper holiday experiences without compromising on their level of enjoyment. We recommend a trip to the northern tip of the Peak District in 2017, with the so-called Dark Peak home to some fabulous hiking trails and swooping, valley slopes that the whole family can explore.
The city of Andalusia in Seville is hardly a tourist hotspot, but for a single week in April (between the 9th and 16th, to be precise) it becomes a magnet for families from across Europe. It is during this time at Seville’s Holy Week celebrations take place, turning the city into an exciting hub of activity and enthusiasm.
Whether you stay in the city or travel there from a picturesque coastal resort such as Marbella or Nerja, you will find plenty to keep you occupied while basking in a sun-kissed, 24 degree Celsius climate.
