Hot winter sun deals

OFF the back of one of the wettest summers on record, the momentum for those booking a short break in the sun this winter is as strong as ever.

Falcon Holidays expect interest in a new winter sun programme to be bigger than most normal years.

The weather at home has certainly prompted more people to seek breaks abroad and Falcon is tempting clients with some early offers starting from €239 per person.

The new brochure features a wide choice such as the Canary Islands, Majorca, the Algarve, Lapland, Egypt’s Red Sea Riviera and Mediterranean and Red Sea cruise options, in conjunction with Thomson Cruises. The Red Sea Magic cruise departs from Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt and takes in Jordan, Cairo and Luxor, while the Colourful Coasts cruise, available from Tenerife and Gran Canaria, includes the Canary Islands, Madeira and Morocco.
