What are the official dates for the Christmas Holidays 2018?
Christmas day officially takes place on the 25th of December 2018. This year Christmas will take place on a Tuesday. For many of us, the 24th and 26th of December are either half days or public holidays.
For many kids in Ireland, the school holidays begin on the 24th of December and run right up until the 4th of January 2019.
As a result of its proximity to the weekend, there is plenty of opportunities to take some time off with these holidays.
In terms of working, if you are quick off the mark you can grab the Friday off and have a very nice weekend break for yourself.
What are your options for a Christmas Holiday?
The great thing about booking a holiday around this time of year is that there is plenty of options for cut-price sun holidays. If you think a little outside the box you can save yourself a good chunk of cash when it comes to booking a holiday around this time of year.
In terms of city breaks, it gets a bit trickier. There are certain cities that can get quite busy over the season and spaces in hotels can be at a premium. Still, if you find a good deal for a snowy city it can be a seriously romantic experience. Plus, those cosy Christmas markets are an indelible way to spend an evening!
Getting a Flight at Christmas Time
In terms of flights, you can actually grab yourself a bargain when it comes to flying on Christmas day! You can expect the airports too much less crowded but be warned that there may not be any shops or restaurants open for buying food.
The same goes for New Years Day as well, the flights can be cheap but be wary of what you might not be able to get to the airport.
The airports don’t formally close on Christmas day but you should expect the services available to you to be severely reduced.
Winter Sun Holidays
From time to time everyone wants to try something different. When it comes to sunny Christmas holidays, they are no different! The great thing about planning a Christmas sun holiday is that it can be pretty easy to find some cheap deals.
There are a few destinations in Europe that are soaked in sunshine year round. The Canary Islands are a good example of a destination that can be great to visit year round. Other sunny highlights include Lanzarote, Tenerife, Fuerteventura and Malta.
Of course, if you have the money and stay tuned to our cheap flight updates you can grab yourself a break in the southern hemisphere. Places like South Africa, Australia and South America can be great places to ring in the New Year in style!
Christmas City Breaks
Probably one of the best ways to shake things up is by experience Christmas in a totally different culture. The great thing about living in Europe is that you can find plenty of great cheap city breaks for a winter holiday.
Finding a cheap hotel around this time can be a pretty tricky process as there is much greater demand for space around this time of year.
For some people, it doesn’t feel like Christmas unless there’s snow! With this in mind, you have plenty of options to get a proper snowy Christmas holiday. Whether you are looking for a Ski Holiday or just want to go where there’s some snow, there are plenty of great options open to you.
When you have kids one of the obvious choices would be to get a break to the fabulously famous Lapland. Lapland can be an expensive destination if you don’t book in plenty of time. There is a lot of demand on the hotels in the area but if you book with plenty of time to spare you can get some decently priced breaks
