Holidays without the kids

You're already spending the kids' inheritance on another holiday, so why not do it in style with a luxury airport hotel and a lounge before you fly?

The kids are going back to school but it's still hot at the beach in September - so now is a great time to go away! With Brexit on the horizon to complicate holiday plans after October now's the perfect time to take a hassle-free break. Everywhere is cheaper and quieter than it was in August, so with the money you've saved you can treat yourself to some holiday extras for your trip.



Everywhere is cheaper and quieter than in August



On average the cheapest flights to the top holiday destinations are 40% cheaper in September than during the August peak.

In fact, so great is the difference in holiday prices between term-time and school holidays it has prompted petition to the government with more than 30,000 signatures, legislation to stop parents taking their kids out of school for cheaper holidays in term-time, and a flurry of articles advising parents how to get around the price difference.


Book your holiday extras early

It pays to book your airport parking, airport hotel or your lounge as soon as you book your flights. Prices usually go up nearer the date you fly, so you can usually save money by visiting us as soon as you've booked your trip.
