In-the-know deal seekers head into sale periods with an action plan in place. When it comes to holiday hunting, it's worth thinking ahead about where you’d like to go, how long for and roughly how much you’d be willing to pay. Our advice? Make a list of your most-wanted destinations, and do your best to stick to it. As a result, you’ll be more equipped to make a choice when you’ve spotted the perfect bargain – how does two weeks on Mexico’s Caribbean Coast sound?
On the other side of the coin, holidays go like hotcakes once they’re on sale. Securing a great holiday at a snip can come down to making a spur-of-the-moment choice on a destination you might not have thought of. As you’re scrolling through, keep your eyes peeled for those left-field options – you could end up jetting off on a trip you never knew you wanted. So even if a sun, sand and sea break was at the top of your wish list, don’t ignore the opportunity to go somewhere totally different if the right deal pops up – like an adventure-packed few days exploring Iceland's rugged countryside, for example.
When it comes to the January sales, it’s the early bird who catches the rock-bottom prices. When it all kicks off on Boxing Day, you’ll set yourself up for a win just by hopping out of bed a couple of hours before you usually would – not an easy task when you’re suffering from a pigs-in-blankets hangover, we know. Nevertheless, by setting your alarm to go off bright and early, you’ll be at the front of the queue for browsing our best holiday steals. Trust us, it’ll all be worth it when you’re unfurling your towel onto that picture-perfect white-sand beach.
Give us the nod to send our best holiday inspiration straight to your inbox, and you’ll be the first to know when our January sale deals drop. We’ll show you handpicked selections of destinations to help you decide which part of the world to see next. Whether you’re after a romantic break for two at one of our TUI SENSIMAR hotels, or an action-packed few days at a TUI MAGIC LIFE is on the agenda. Plus, we’ll give you a heads up on the handy discount codes you'll need to make the best savings, too.
Another way you can get first pick of the January sales is by keeping a close eye on your social media channels. We’ll be releasing our top holiday picks and discount codes on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, so make sure you’ve given us a like or follow. Plus, this is a great way for you to share the best deals with your friends and family – teamwork makes the dream work, after all.
