Top tips for booking a winter getaway

Creating your perfect holiday is all about planning, so be sure to carefully select the dates you’re travelling and book flights, accommodation and airport transfers well in advance.

Popular 2020 holiday destinations

The Travelbag team recommends the sun-drenched locations of Dubai, the Maldives, California and Florida, all of which guarantee gorgeous views, delicious food and loads of exciting things to do.

Top tips for holidaying on a budget

A quick and easy way to save money from the get-go is to be flexible with your departure dates and airports. We’d also recommend you research different resorts and consider lowering the star rating of your hotel. For example, a four-star can actually be of a similar standard to a five-star – and it’s more affordable too! Finally, if you’re travelling with a friend, why not consider sharing a room?
