As the summer draws to a close, and the nights become longer and colder, our Summer holiday start to become a distant memory. Brighten up your autumn with a chic city escape and make the most of the fabulous sale fares available when you book by 24th September. We’ve put together some of our favourite ideas for getaways around the world to tempt you...
For a fabulous alternative to New York, head to Washington, DC. The power house of the USA is bursting with museums, art galleries, world class restaurants not to mention the city's iconic sights. Takle in the city's historic sites, take a trip to the Spy Museum. Plus with Christmas on the horizon, there’s plenty of shopping to be done so be sure to bring a large suitcase. Take advantage of some great sale flights to Washington DC and see for yourself.
You may be too late to grab a ticket to the Abu Dhabi grand prix in November, but why not go one better and actually drive the Yas Marina circuit! Take a city break to Abu Dhabi and follow in the footsteps (or tyre treads) of Vettel, Alonso and Hamilton as you speed around the track. The rest of your time you can just relax and enjoy the luxury that Abu Dhabi has to offer.
Are you more of a Spring than an Autumn person? As September draws to a close and autumn arrives, South Africa is enjoying the start of their spring, making Cape Town the perfect destination for an extended city break. A little sunshine, a spot of wine tasting, maybe even a trip up Table Mountain! Cape Town offers world class hotels, sensational food and wine as well as the perfect base for some wildlife spotting. Flights to Cape Town are currently on sale with British Airways, plus with a favourable exchange rate, you can indulge in delicious food and wine for a fraction of the cost at home.
The sun may have left us here in Britain, but it’s still shining in LA. You could live like a celebrity for a few days with a short break to Los Angeles. More than enough time to visit a few of the attractions such as LA Live, Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Dodger stadium plus you can get your vitamin D fix on the beach. There's currently some great prices on flights to Los Angeles, so there's no better time to book it up.
Back to Autumn, but this time with a twist... Tokyo has much more to offer than just neon lights and technology (although they are worth the visit too!). The city has many parks such as the famous Shinjuku Gyoen, a delightful haven nestled quietly in between high rise buildings and sky scrapers. It is home to over 1500 cherry trees and full of amazing, vibrant colour at any time of the year so well worth a visit. With such amazing deals in the British Airways sale, there's never been a better time to book your flights to Tokyo.
