Half Term holidays have always been a tricky situation for families to get away. The half terms fall before and after the winter season and the UK weather never fails to spoil the week off the children have from school. The half term is relatively short with only a week space; however, it is an opportunity to get away as a family without worrying about the children missing any important school work. As there is such a short window of opportunity, a long-haul flight to the Caribbean may not be the best choice. After travelling eight hours and experiencing some terrible jet-lag you will already be half way through your week-long break. Therefore, at most, a trip to the Canaries or Balearics is what you will be after for a half term break.

Half Term Holidays

Half term holidays are usually quite affordable as schools across the country vary their half term dates as apposed to the fixed dates for Easter and summer. Therefore, the demand and supply for half term holidays will be spread over a space of a couple of weeks rather than a uniform one week. This spread makes the price of a half term holiday much cheaper as demand does not outweigh supply, and thus, a cheap half term holiday can be easily achieved.

Half term holidays offer a fantastic choice of holidays ranging from adventure holidays and beach holidays and everything in between. Cheap half term holidays make it perfect time to visit some of your favourite beach destinations. Destinations such as Portugal, Spain, Italy and Turkey all provide beautiful beach holidays with the chance to explore the local areas easily. The weather is remarkably cooler than at the height of the summer months, especially in the Turkish and Italian resorts. If you have toddlers and older relatives, the cooler temperatures make it a much more comfortable way to experience the beautiful resorts. These resorts are only a short distance to travel but if you are searching for something a little further a field then why not go to Morocco or the tip of Africa. At slightly further away, the travelling time is more, but the holiday will be much more rewarding during the half term.

If a trip to a sunny destination is too much for a week then why not travel to one of the many cities and take the chance to experience some breathtaking destinations. New York, Barcelona, Madrid, Rome, Venice, London, Edinburgh, Brussels, Belgium, Amsterdam are just the mere tip of the iceberg of city trips that would fit perfectly into a weeks half term holiday. If the budget allows you, a trip to New York is a major experience, and with a competitive exchange rate, the shopping will pay for itself.

However, if you wish to stay with the winter theme and chilly feel of the half term, there are many skiing breaks still available and snowy destinations to visit. Skiing resorts are fantastic getaways for half term holidays, but destinations such as Lapland, provide a brilliant alternative to just sliding down a mountain. The activities and sights of Lapland are fantastic for you and the kids. The littlest of children will thrive in the experience of visiting the home of Father Christmas and feeding some of his reindeers. Half term holidays have many destinations and types of holidays to choose from and will not disappoint travellers.
