Long-haul holidays offer a true taste of the exotic for travellers looking for a more adventurous and unfamiliar experience for their week or fortnight away. A growing market in the UK, long-haul breaks have become almost commonplace, with a wealth of options for all types of holidaymaker eager to jet off all over the world. With exceptional package bargains and a host of tailor-made trips on offer, incorporating a choice of both scheduled and relatively new charter flights, there's now a huge selection of long distance packages available to everyone.
Far-flung and exotic destinations, now readily accessible
From romantic honeymoon destinations such as the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean, to more unusual resorts in South East Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe, long-haul holidays offer a chance to really see the world, and a departure from the many familiar and much-visited European resorts. Long-haul can be enjoyed throughout the year; however most holidaymakers tend to make the most of the wonderful tropical weather to be found in other continents, and travel during the winter months, therefore escaping the typically cold, grey British days. These far flung destinations offer visitors not only relaxation on idyllic beaches, but the chance to travel off the beaten track and explore new cultures and customs, and really experience a very different way of life. Many travellers are now taking advantage of the many charter flights that are incorporated into long-haul holidays, and taking exotic trips around the world, at extremely reasonable prices.
Relax on tropical beaches; experience a world of new cultures
Generally classified as being more than 5 hours from the UK, long-haul really does cater for everyone. For beach-lovers, long-haul destinations to consider include Hawaii, Fiji, the Maldives, the Seychelles and Kenya, and for diving enthusiasts, there are the famous crystal-clear waters of Mauritius, the Caribbean and Eilat. Destinations giving visitors the experience of a new and exciting culture could include Thailand, Bali, Goa and Mexico, and for those looking to make the most of their money, packages to the United States, such as New York, California and Las Vegas, offer excellent value, in terms of sightseeing, shopping and dining.
