LONDON, June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The UK should be getting a much needed boost of Vitamin D as the grey skies finally roll away to reveal a glimpse of the summer sun. And this year British holidaymakers can follow the sun into the autumn and beyond with the fantastic Winter 2012/2013 sale from Direct Holidays.
Sunbathing in Gran Canaria
Brits tend to hibernate indoors during the cold months, but the Vitamin D in sunlight is not only great for our skin, it's also essential for improving our digestive system and absorption of calcium. Cheap holidays to the Canary Islands during the autumn and winter come with guaranteed long and sunny days, which is the perfect remedy for tired bodies. Gran Canaria holidays offer a relaxed pace of life after the hectic summer holiday season, with plenty of fantastic walking trails for anyone looking to stretch their legs.
Time Travel in Turkey
Almost 1 in 5 of us will suffer from the winter blues at some point, which is officially known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Lack of exposure to sunlight and cold temperatures can sap away at our creativity and motivational levels. Holidaymakers can escape the cold this year with cheap Turkey holidays, where they'll find inspirational natural beauty and fascinating historical sites. The Aegean Coast allows visitors to take a step back in time with wonders from the ancient Lycian civilisation, including King Mausolus's Tomb and the underwater city of Mindos.
Royal treatment in Egypt
Many holidaymakers can be put off by steep prices to mid-haul destinations during the peak summer months, so the winter is a great time for them to enjoy five star treatment for less. Cheap Egypt holidays offer relaxing all-inclusive experiences in world-class resorts by the glittering Red Sea. Adrenaline-junkies can get their fix with windsurfing, scuba diving and jeep safaris to the site of Moses's Burning Bush and the spectacular Coloured Canyon. Many hotels also offer pampering spa treatments to help soothe away the aches and pains of everyday life.
New Year In Mexico
Cheaper flight prices also mean that autumn and winter are the perfect time for holidaymakers to expand their holiday destinations. Brits can indulge in a luxurious stay at one of Cuba's white sand resorts, or enjoy the freedom of a backpacking trip to see the exotic sights of Goa. The British pound is stronger than ever in Mexico, making it the perfect destination for a New Year party to remember.
