• Autumnal weather prompts Brits to holiday abroad

• Attractive deals make late holidays a more viable option

Thomas Cook offer travellers plenty of options

With the recession making a dent in most family budgets and dreary autumnal weather setting in early, leading travel operator Thomas Cook is promoting its cheapest package holidays as a great way to escape the winter blues.

Thomas Cook has a huge range of last minute deals with all inclusive packages to Greece, Turkey and Egypt as well as city breaks to top destinations such as Venice. Attractive deals are expected to make late holidays a more viable option for cash-strapped Brits this year - but what are some of the top destinations to consider?


The historic and beautiful Mediterranean island of Malta is an excellent destination for sun seekers. There are numerous cheap Malta holidays available at quality resorts, from a stay at the four-star Seabank Hotel & Spa to an all-inclusive stay at the three-star Seashells Resort at Suncrest.

Travellers will find that Malta has something to offer all tastes and types of tourist. The old capital of Valetta is a UNESCO World Heritage Centre, but if sports are more to your taste, try and book a trip in time to watch the Rolex Middle Sea Race in mid October.

If your simply looking for a holiday to provide some well-deserved 'R and R' on the beach, then a break at the Ramla Bay Resort might be the answer. Situated on the coast, opposite the lush island of Gozo, the resort has its own beach and provides great entertainment for the whole family.


Just off the coast of Africa, Tenerife has long been a popular destination for sun-starved Brits. A stay at the Vulcano Hotel could provide a family with an affordable December break and the hotel is also close to the ever-popular, bustling resort of Playa de las Americas.  

For other cheap holidays to Tenerife, perhaps a self-catering holiday at the El Sombrero complex might prove to be a cost effective solution for a quick getaway. The complex is close to Los Gigantes and is perfect for those who prefer a little independence combined with top facilities and close proximity to a vibrant local town.

Tenerife has a superb nightlife but those who want to appreciate nature may want to experience the magic of swimming with the dolphins or just indulge in a spot of golf on one of the island's superb greens.
