Setting off from damp and dreary Britain in search of hot and sunny weather is one of the biggest treats of winter - and getting some sunshine can bring a whole heap of benefits not just confined to a little colour on your pasty skin!
Whether you're after a cheap and cheerful getaway or something a bit more exotic, there are plenty of places to choose from away from our grey and windy shores in 2017. Check out our Real Deals for the cheapest offers on the market brought fresh to you every week - we always feature plenty of winter sun all season long.
When it comes to temperatures, you really do get what you pay for - the Algarve and the Costa del Sol are cheap-as-chips and you can expect sunshine but not that much warmth. Morocco, Cyprus and the Canary Islands are pretty cheap and a bit hotter, but the real bargains are usually to be found on the Red Sea coast. Far-flung destinations like Goa, Mexico and of course the Caribbean, are guaranteed to be sunny but your airfare costs will be higher.
If you need winter sun and you need it fast then the best way to save money is to go where the bargains are, rather than picking where you want to go and then searching for a winter sun holiday to match. After all, you're just going to be lounging in the sunshine by the sea or by the pool, so you don't need to have all those cultural attractions around. All inclusive winter sun holidays are pretty great for those type of getaways.
Winter sun deals tend to be found around a time that many hotels are looking to fill rooms, so keep your eyes open for plenty of added extras like free room upgrades, free board upgrades and reductions on spa treatments. These can make your holiday that bit more special without inflating the price tag! Cheap holidays are the ideal way to treat yourself and we're happy to help you find them.
When it comes to getting a winter sun holiday on a budget, the best way to go is all inclusive. You cut out the hassle of finding your own food, leaving you with more time to soak up the rays, and you know how much you are spending upfront. Just make sure the deal comes with luggage and transfers included to save you paying out for extras.
