Guest Post: Summer Holiday Sizzlers

It’s that time of year again. The birds are tweeting, green shoots are appearing and there’s a general feeling that Spring is on its way. Which can only mean one thing – it’s time to book your summer holiday!

So where will 2013 take you?

One destination that’s growing in popularity is Turkey. Traditionally an affordable location with a relatively low cost of living, holidays in Turkey are ideal if you’re hoping to holiday on a shoestring. But it’s not all about deals and discounts. Home to scores of cheerful and family-friendly resorts, from bubbly Bodrum to beautiful Antalya, Turkey has got all the classic summer staples of sun, sea and sand, and a lot more besides. You’ll find a great selection of Turkey holidays with Thomas Cook, or you can get here under your own steam by booking your own flights and hotel.

Elsewhere, as summer sizzlers go, you can’t beat the Greek islands. Scorchers like Rhodes, which has one of the best sunshine records in the Med, make a truly fabulous getaway that’s hot, hot, hot. Other mainstream islands like Corfu and Crete are eternally popular with sun-seekers, beach-lovers and families alike, while the likes of Kefalonia and Santorini are famed for their striking good looks and laid-back lifestyles.

The Canary Islands, located close to Africa’s west coast, is another summer hotspot, and it’s got everything you could ever need for a holiday to remember. You can visit the Canaries in winter too, for a mild yet still pleasant experience, where t-shirt weather is the norm and you can even enjoy a spot of sunbathing on Christmas Day!

One of the most hassle-free ways to enjoy your summer jolly (and some great discounts too) is to book with a trusted tour operator. For instance, you can book Thomas Cook holidays quickly and easily online, and snap up some great online deals while you’re at it. Perfect!

Right, where’s my credit card?
