Direct Holidays: Tropical escapes in 2012/13

Although the British pound is currently strong against the Euro, holidaymakers can now get much more for their money by looking to long-haul destinations. Around 80% of world currencies are weaker against the pound compared to this time last year, making 2012/13 the perfect season for Brits to book cheap holiday deals to new exotic destinations.

Direct Holidays have launched their new Tropical Escapes brochure, which is packed with an exciting range of resorts and activities to suit holidaymakers of all tastes and budgets. There’s also a host of great extras to be enjoyed on long-haul destinations this year, including 20kg luggage allowance as standard, in-flight meals and a resort transfers. Early birds can book a tropical escape today with a low deposit to enjoy a dedicated rep service while they are away.

British tourists looking for cheap all inclusive holidays should look beyond the usual suspects this year to the idyllic Goa in West India. Lively holiday districts stand side by side with peaceful villages in this sun-soaked paradise where a warm and charming atmosphere awaits. Travelers who have enjoyed watersport holidays to Rhodes will be dazzled by the exhilarating activities on offer along Mexico’s Caribbean coast. Meanwhile culture vultures, used to wandering through ancient Greek ruins on cheap Cyprus holidays, can jump forward in time and explore the faded elegance of Cuba’s warn torn cities.

Holidaymakers can now also get more dollars for their pound on trips to the United States, where the motto is: bigger is better. Las Vegas is the casino capital of the world and the party just never stops. Luxury hotel suites offer truly magical views across the glittering landscape of sky-scraping towers and pyramids, while the spectacular Gran Canyon makes for a challenging hike when it’s time for a break from the hectic nightlife.

Florida holiday packages are a great choice for families with children of all ages. A fly and drive option provides the freedom to explore the area’s huge range of theme parks and attractions, including the Disneyland Parks, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. Golf-lovers should head to the quiet Tampa Bay area, while a city break to Miami offers the chance to explore the world’s richest concentration of art-deco architecture.
