FLIGHT comparison site Kayak is encouraging us to banish the January blues by booking a bargain New Year escape now, giving you something special to look forward to after Christmas.
To support The Sun’s Give Us A Break campaign, Kayak has exclusive prices on flights to a range of popular destinations around the globe in January 2022.
Kayak saw a huge surge in online travel searches following the Government’s overhaul of the traffic-light system and easing of testing requirements, with a 73 per cent rise in searches for holidays this autumn or winter.
Many Brits held off on booking holidays until restrictions were relaxed, so winter sun destinations such as Dubai, the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean will be very much in demand this year.
Kayak has seen searches for the UAE, Barbados, Mauritius and the Maldives up to 60 per cent higher than pre-pandemic levels.
And it predicts prices to popular hotspots will rise over the next few months.
The cost of holidays to Turkey, for example, jumped by 31 per cent the week it was removed from the UK’s red list.
The travel search engine has already seen a hike in flight costs, so travellers keen to get away this January need to snap up their next getaway quickly.
To help you on your way, Kayak is offering great prices on winter warmers such as Dubai.
The dazzling desert city has risen up the ranks fast to become a top travel destination for winter 2021/22 and Kayak currently has direct return flights to the Emirate from £250pp this January flying from Heathrow, so you can jet off to sunnier skies at a snip of the usual price.
As well as a vital dose of vitamin D, the Arabian city is packed with luxury malls and man-made marvels offering stellar shopping and sightseeing.
As the US reopens its doors to vaccinated Brits from November, trips to the beaches and theme parks of sunny Florida are also proving popular, and Kayak has found some fantastic flight deals to save you money this winter with flights to Miami from London Heathrow at just £310pp return.
And if you’ve ever dreamed of a big trip to America’s very own tropical enclave, Hawaii, this winter could be the perfect time to go, with Kayak currently offering return flights early next February from £476pp.
Meanwhile, for a touch of short-haul sun closer to home, holidaymakers can warm up on the platinum shores of the beautiful Balearics next January, with return flights to the island of Majorca available from £64pp return from Stansted.
While in the summer months the island’s beaches are the main draw, the capital Palma is perfect for an off-season city break with a handsome waterfront and atmospheric old town stuffed with world-class museums, boutique stores and tapas restaurants.
