UK summers…we all know how they go. One day of sunshine - IF we’re lucky - and then it’s back to long sleeves, eating indoors and carrying umbrellas everywhere we go. If you don’t fancy chancing your luck, get yourself on a summer holiday for guaranteed sunshine. Close the weather app. Ditch the umbrella. The only waterproofs you need here are your swimwear. We’re talking beaches (not the rubbish pebbly ones), PLENTY of opportunities to show off your summer wardrobe, and BBQs that you don’t need to cook yourself. It’s not too late to do summer right.

On the Beach Perks - FREE Lounge & FREE Fast Track

Today is the day. You're up early, the other half has checked the passports a thousand times and you're on your way. The kids even had cake for breakfast… because you're on your jollies. Holiday mode is on! The only thing between you and the beach is the dreaded airport faff - the security queue, the food and drink queues and all that money you spend. But, what if we skipped that bit? Skip the security queue. Stroll into the swanky airport lounge and load up on free cake. Enjoy Free airport beers and Wi-Fi access to brag about it? Now, that's what I'm talking about. With FREE security fast track on all package holidays and FREE lounge access for 4 or 5* package holidays, that's exactly what you get. Your jollies just… jollier. Free security fast track and free lounge offers apply to outbound journeys only, and some airports may be excluded. Terms and conditions apply.

When does summer start in the UK?

British summertime usually starts in mid-June and ends in mid-September. This is when schools are closed for summer too, so it's a great time to jet off with the whole family for some sun.

Where are the best destinations for a summer holiday?

The great thing about going on holiday in summer is that you're pretty much guaranteed amazing weather, wherever you go. Spain, Greece and Turkey are the most popular choices for sunseekers, but there are plenty of other destinations that might just become your new favourite, such as Cyprus, Madeira or the trusty Canary Islands.

What are the cheapest summer holiday destinations?

The cheapest destinations vary, but Turkey is a great choice for getting the most for your money, and you'll find some affordable gems in Spain's Costa del Sol and the Greek islands. Book early to secure your break for a wallet-friendly price.
