Christmas has been and gone but perhaps you want to continue the celebrations in January. With our ‘Where to Go’ tool you can find some of the best holiday destinations for January, based on your preferences. Whether you wish to catch some winter sun on the shores of a far-flung destination, go on a fun family holiday in the UK, or discover a brand new city, we have a range of January holidays to tempt you.
Different types of January holidays
We do both short and long haul beach holidays so that you can beat the winter blues close to home, or feel really far away from your daily routine. Fly just a few hours to destinations like the Canary Islands, where golden and black sands await, or board a plane out to the UAE or Southeast Asia and get your sun fix on one of our long haul holidays. Take advantage of our family holidays to discover some of the UK and Europe's finest cities with the kids. There are interactive museums, galleries and outdoor activities to keep all ages happy across a long weekend. Couples, friends and singles can make the most of a longer break to our closest European neighbours at this quiet time of year. Feeling a little more adventurous? Then our big city holiday destinations like New York in the US, Bangkok in Thailand and Cape Town in South Africa await.
