December can be the best month to take a holiday. Who wouldn’t jump at the chance of escaping the cold, dark days of a European winter?! You deserve to recharge your batteries and refresh your mind, ready for a new year to start.
To get you through the gloomy preceding months, booking a December holiday well in advance builds excitement and gives you more time to plan excursions.
More importantly, if you plan well ahead it’s possible to grab cheap business class tickets and very favourable hotel prices. Organising your December holiday early also means you can enjoy more choice for flights times, carriers and accommodation.
Clearly, flight prices over Christmas and New Year fluctuate considerably. However, even major airlines like Emirates, Virgin, British Airways and Qantas do sometimes lower the cost of business class seats to fill aircraft on less popular December dates. Don’t rely on last minute flight tickets though, as you are likely to end up paying inflated prices.
Fortunately, the specialists at Just Fly Business know the pricing patterns, route demands and seating layouts of airline companies, to find cheap business class tickets in December.
What do you want from your end of year getaway; sun drenched, secluded beaches on an island paradise; pristine snow for hours of joyful skiing; or sightseeing and shopping in a top international city for Christmas festivities?
Elbowing your way around Christmas Market stalls is not everyone’s idea of the best December holiday. Sun and spectacular winter landscapes are often the biggest draws for authentically relaxing December getaways.
Ideas for beach holidays in winter are plentiful. There are some amazing business class deals for long haul flights to whisk you to the world’s most beguiling resorts.
Imagine escaping December’s dark days and horrible weather, to bask on a Caribbean beach!
Lush and lovely island destinations such as Barbados, St Lucia and Jamaica all have a fabulous December climate, including manageable temperature and humidity levels. The fact that the evenings are cooler adds to the appeal of Caribbean holidays in winter, as it’s more comfortable to go out and explore local restaurants and bars or take moonlight walks on the soft sand.
The coldest month of the year in Europe is still fabulously hot and soothing in the gorgeous Thai beach resorts too.
In fact, December holidays in places like Krabi , Phuket and Koh Phi Phi offer you the best climate to enjoy snorkelling, diving and swimming in crystal clear waters. Word of warning; the charms and ideal climate of Thailand’s luxury beach resorts in December are no secret! It’s peak season for top Thai hotels, so book early!
Or, choose somewhere ‘different’. There’s an abiding myth that flying off to the year-round sun and many splendours of Dubai is a major undertaking. Yet flight times from the UK to Dubai can be as little as six hours!
Then you’re ready to bask in Dubai’s guaranteed sunshine and warmth, exploring a holiday destination with stunning beaches, luxury hotels and gravity defying architecture.
Don’t forget that for long haul flights to Dubai, Thailand and the Caribbean, many leading airlines make the journey part of the holiday, pampering you in business class travel. It starts with swift passage through check in and customs, before enjoying great food, drinks and the chilled atmosphere of airport lounges. Then you sit (or lie) back in a wonderfully spacious and comfortable chair, fully entertained, well fed and exploring an amenity kit with luxury products. Bliss!
Far away from Europe’s slush, sleet and grey skies, there are winter wonderlands that make snow seem magical. For many world travellers and winter holiday fans, the ultimate mountain retreat is the truly wonderful Whistler, in Canada.
Here you can indulge in skiing and snowboarding on pristine snow cover. However, Whistler is also the ideal place for December holidays for non-skiers too.
You could whizz through the breathtaking glacial landscape on a snowmobile, take a guided hiking tour with snowshoes, ride ski lifts for mountain sunrises or sunsets, or lounge in a hot tub gazing in awe at unadulterated star patterns. Whistler also features mountain village shopping that makes Christmas retail fun!
Christmas shopping of a very different sort awaits anyone who books a December holiday in New York. Not least as the Big Apple offers the best Christmas window displays in the world!
Nowhere ‘does’ December with so much style and pizzazz as New York. As the snowflakes fall, visit the awe inspiring Christmas tree and the iconic ice rink at the Rockefeller Center. Or, take a tour around the jaw dropping decorations in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, then soak up the unparalleled winter arts scene in this diverse and fascinating city.
Start your December holiday in New York early and add watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in late November to your list of incredible life experiences.
Whatever you choose, your December holiday could be ‘uplifting’ from the minute it’s booked.
Start daydreaming about ‘living your best life’, maxing out on airport lounge treats, kicking back in the sumptuous luxury of affordable business class travel, and then chasing the winter damp away on a sun drenched beach, breathing in the pure mountain air or watching a show on Broadway.
