Fear not, it's not too late to get up and go!
With the Easter holidays fast approaching, many of us are franticly reaching for our buckets and spades in the hope of getting away in April.
Why panic though? After all, hold out ‘til May and you won’t just avoid all of the traffic, but you could bag yourself a bargain too.
So take a deep breath, prepare yourself for another month at work and be the envy of all your friends come May with one of these great getaways.
Greece will undoubtedly be a literal hotspot for parents, ravers and explorers alike come April, yet everything you could want (especially the weather) will still be there the following month. In fact, you can save 30% at the 5 star Melia in Athens simply by going in May. The hotel is complete with luxury spa and sits a mere discus throw away from all the local ancient and modern wonders, including the masterful Acropolis which is not to be missed!
For those of you feeling more adventurous, combine Greece with a tour of Turkey too and save 15% on this 8 day trip. You’ll explore the delights of Istanbul, cruise around the Aegen Islands, discover the ancient city of Ephesus and visit the remarkable Grand Bazaar.
If that’s not your thing, how about a riding your luck in fabulous Las Vegas? Live the high life for less in May with your stay at the Aria Resort and Casino with a 10% saving and a deluxe king room. You’ll be in the heart of the famous Vegas Strip in a sleek and stylish hotel offering oodles of entertainment just for you. The Aria alone is home to an abundance of bars, lounges and nightclubs as well as it’s own theatre and, of course, casino. Sin City also still has plenty of shows and events to keep you entertained in May and don't forget you can still pay a visit to the Grand Canyon!
Alternatively, you can focus on the glitz and glam offered by Vegas' showmanship at the Hard Rock Hotel, home to two of the best live music venues in the area including the 4,000 capacity venue: The Joint. Take in music and comedy delights whilst you live life like a true rock star, all whilst making a 10% saving.
On the other end of the spectrum, you could be doing next-to-nothing in the harmonious utopia that is Barbados. Cheap flights, lower humidity than previous months and being well before hurricane season all make May the ideal time to visit Barbados (or anywhere else in the Caribbean for that matter).
The island plays host to a number of tranquil locations ideal for your next relaxing recess. The Sugar Cane Club and Ocean Two Resort both offer excellent stress-busting opportunities, being nestled closely to the white, sandy beaches and cool, clear waters that we so often crave. If there is one thing that we love more than a sandy beach though, it’s a bargain, and with 25% savings on either hotel, you can bag yourself both for your May getaway.
