A Guide to the Best Christmas Travel Destinations Around
There’s a great choice of Christmas getaways available, meaning you can choose to spend the
festive season amidst snowy mountains or on a sun-drenched beach. However, before you head off,
it’s important to ensure you’ve got the essentials covered.
The festive season is fast approaching and whilst many are looking forward to spending a comfortable
Christmas at home, there are a number of people looking to escape from the madness of it all. And,
whether you’re searching for some fun in the sun or to frolic on snowy ski slopes, there are a number
of great winter destinations to choose from.
If you’re seeking a traditional Christmas getaway, then there can be nowhere more exciting than the
Bavarian capital, Munich. Located in the south of Germany, is it a veritable festive treasure trove of
enchanting Christmas markets, snow-filled forests and deliciously warming Glühwein (mulled wine). It
is also a great starting point for discovering the stunning scenery Bavaria has to offer and with the
Austrian Alps just a stone’s throw away, it is even possible to fit in a spot of skiing.
For those that can’t make up their mind whether they want to lie in the sun or participate in the winter
sports available, Israel is an ideal location to head to. Renowned for its religious connotations, it also
boasts an incredibly varied climate, which is particularly apparent in winter.
Therefore, you can spend half of your holiday on the top of the snowy peak of Mount Hermon and
then travel to the coastal cities of Tel Aviv or Hafia to take advantage of the picturesque beaches and
Mediterranean weather on offer.
To truly put all thoughts of the cold, wet weather out of your head, then the Caribbean is the place to
go. Offering up a wealth of sun-soaked islands to discover, it is the perfect location to indulge in some
proper rest and relaxation. Anguilla is a great island and boasts over 30 beaches to choose from and
a number of exquisite eateries and superb wine cellars to experience.
There is a huge range of Christmas destinations to choose from and dependent on your holiday
requirements, there is something to suit everyone’s tastes. However, before you escape for the
winter, it’s worthwhile ensuring that you have the essentials covered.
According to the travel experts, it’s a good idea to make sure you book your holiday in advance.
Although there are many good last minute deals, it’s often more cost-effective to organise your flights
and accommodation up to a year before you want to go. Equally, it is wise to spend some time
researching your chosen destination: a quick internet search will throw up a range of websites that
can help you to gain a clear picture of what you can expect to experience whilst abroad.
Finally, the experts suggest organising an appropriate level of travel insurance coverage. This, they
say, is essential, since it will protect you against anything that may go wrong when you’re away, such
as losing your baggage or flight cancellations. Having the right travel insurance in place is also
important if you know you'll be participating in winter sporting activities.
