Holidays in April
April is the month of April Fools’ Day and it's also a great time for an Easter holiday. Why not open and enjoy your Easter eggs on the shores of Malta, pack them for a family holiday in Marrakesh or enjoy some Italian chocolate on the streets of Rome with a short haul city break? Whether you holiday at Easter or otherwise, we have the trip for you as we move into spring.
Different types of April holidays
Think of beach holidays and that old classic Benidorm emerges in our minds. Year after year, this beach favourite delights the more homely traveller. The Portuguese Algarve is another hotspot if you prefer beach holidays that stop you from straying too far from British shores. If you’re prepared to put the air miles in for your beach break, you can dream about long haul destinations such as the Seychelles, the Maldives or even Goa.
Families who love to discover new cultures can turn to Hong Kong, Bangkok or other long haul holiday destinations for their collective travel kicks. If faraway destinations aren’t part of the plans for your family, you can try places like the cheerful Netherlands or stay within the UK and visit the West Midlands on one of our short haul holidays.
City explorers can lace up their walking shoes and see the sights of Berlin in Germany or Marrakesh in Morocco. Venture across the Atlantic and you can visit some of the most iconic destinations in the US, like Miami, New York or Las Vegas. Or you can swipe right and head for a Bangkok city break in Thailand instead.

Best April holiday destinations for you
With its warm temperatures and vibrant atmosphere the Portuguese Algarve lets you get down to some serious beach business on your short haul holiday. Bag your sun lounger and relax at a comfortable 16 to 20°C. Go for the long haul option of the Seychelles and the miles you've covered will be rewarded with beautiful coral reefs and nature reserves. Beach holidays to the Maldives also boast blue lagoons and white sandy beaches.
The Canary Island of Tenerife is still a firm favourite for short haul family holidays, thanks to feats of nature like the Teide National Park and attractions such as Siam Park water park. If you’re holidaying with the children, you can call upon the flair of Mickey Mouse and his buddies at Disneyland® Paris for a short haul family holiday that’s guaranteed to hit the mark.
For the hustle and bustle of a big city look no further than New York or Bangkok, destinations that will make you feel a world away from home. The Big Apple's famed attractions have something for all ages, from the bright lights of Broadway to Central Park and the shops of Madison Avenue.
The gardens and souks of Marrakesh allow city break lovers to see beautiful sights and to bag some bargains while exploring the city. There are also historical attractions such as the Baadi Palace, which was once a building of grandeur in the 16th and 17th centuries. Take your long haul holiday west to Las Vegas instead and, as well as experiencing the hedonism of Vegas life, you have the chance to visit one of the most awesome sights in America: the Grand Canyon.
