Christmas Getaway Ideas 2017
I know what you’re thinking. I know what you’re gonna say. “Jazz. It’s JULY.” I know that, I’m not that much of an idiot, but hear me out. I’ve seen a lot of people doing “Christmas in July” and today when my neighbour came around for a cuppa, we were talking about Disney Christmas ornaments and it all snowballed down there (pun not intended but fully appreciated). I’m currently not very well, either, so I’ve decided to cheer myself up by having a festive planning day. I’ve already got lots of blogmas post ideas ready and then I thought about the fact that lots of people love a holiday or weekend break around Christmas but you can’t really put it in a blogmas post because it’s a tad late. So, I’ve decided to see what offers are on for Christmas 2017 and inspire you for a little holiday this festive season.
First and foremost on my list is of course Disneyland Paris. I’ve been twice in the festive period and it’s honestly the most magical experience. Some of this year’s festivities are the Christmas parade, the show stopping Disney Dreams of Christmas show, Mickey’s Magical Christmas Lights, the chance to meet Santa along with the Disney royalty offering Christmas Wishes as well as Elsa and Anna’s Frozen Sing-along. It’s the most magical place on Earth for the most magical time of year.
The Christmas period this year begins 11th November and there are so many offers and deals. Edwards Coaches have offers of 9 different departure dates with prices from £249 for 3 days, 4 nights staying in the Hotel Cheyenne. If flying is more your thing, Magic Breaks have trips going at around £616.28 based on a London Airport (all airports are around a similar price) with accommodation and park tickets. Another option to try and find a trip to suit you would be to do a DIY package. I’ve done this using Expedia and have found great deals and sales, which is worth checking out.
German Christmas Markets
A fantastic trip to consider this festive season is visiting the German Christmas Markets. The world famous Christmas markets are a must see at one point in your life and are definitely on my list to visit someday. The markets begin at the end of November and would be a perfect weekend away to experience European culture and get some shopping done for the big day. From the food and drink to the overall cosy atmosphere, this would be the perfect weekend away this Winter.
Lastminute.com has deals on at around £292 per person based three nights which includes the hotel and flights from London to Berlin, with prices for other cities and airports being fairly similar. Leger are also offering four day trips from £239pp.
If you favour warmer weather, perhaps the likes of Benidorm is the one for you. Sun it up on the beach, head to the clubs and just take some time out of everyday life. Whatever you do, you can be guaranteed to escape the cold British weather with sun, sea and sand. Thomson have a great deal for 7 days halfboard at £262pp and Trivago have some really great prices for you to compare, too.
What could be better than taking a trip to such a picturesque destination that’s full of festive vibes? The snow capped mountains and European lifestyle is something that gives you chills of excitement just thinking about it. It’s also the ideal place to go on a skiing trip.
Sno have this great trip based on two people for 7 nights and Expedia’s great offers based on two adults and two children for 7 nights are around £427. Another amazing option would be to stay in a Swiss Alps chalet. Booking.com has amazing offers with this one being for four people for £1,942 for four nights.
So, there are four different types of holidays for you to consider for a Christmassy getaway this winter. Where would you like to go for a Winter break?
