20th October 2015
Autumn has officially arrived, bringing along a dramatic drop in temperature that has been felt across the whole of the UK. With the realisation that summer is well and truly over, we can imagine that a lot of people have been left with a serious case of summertime blues.
This is when we spend all our time looking fondly at holiday snaps and stalking the internet for next year’s summer holiday – everyone wants something to look forward to!
Why wait for next summer? Why not book an early 2016 holiday? Destinations like Crete are the perfect place to visit in the early months of the year. Not sold? Let us convince you.
A Holiday Will Refresh You After The Christmas Period
Everyone is so happy around December, due to the feeling of Christmas being in the air constantly. However, once Christmas and New Year are out of the way, a lot of people start to feel a little lost without anything to look forward to.
Don’t sit at home dreaming of being somewhere else, book an early getaway. This will give you something to look forward to when everyone else is feeling bleak after New Year. Book a holiday for early March – this will give you something to put on your calender to count down to!
Crete is the perfect destination for couples, families or solo travellers. There is so much to do and see, as well as eat and drink. It’s home to a lot of fascinating culture and history – something that you can explore in detail. The best part of coming in the earlier months is that you will have a lot of tourist destinations to yourself – no fighting for room with a thousand other tourists.
The Weather Is Better Than At Home
There is no wrong time to book a holiday to Crete; it all depends on what you are looking for. Whilst the earlier months of the year are obviously colder than they are in the summer, the temperatures never reach anywhere near what they do back here in winter. During January, you’re likely to see temperatures of around 12oC but some days could be as high as 16oC – something you would never seen in January in the UK.
March is usually when tourists start descending on the island again, with the highest temperatures reaching around 17oC and there being around 6 hours of sunshine a day. We think March is the perfect time for a pre-summer getaway.
