Holidays in November

November might be the season of Thanksgiving, but we rarely feel thankful for the UK weather at this time of year. Winter sun holidays, action-packed city breaks and long spa weekends are the things that many of us secretly have on our minds. If you are planning holidays in November (or even just daydreaming about them) our Where to Go destination planner is the key to Expedia’s most popular locations, month by month. Whatever your taste or budget, we guarantee you’ll find a holiday in November to get excited about.
We know from our research that there are certain destinations that people love in November. But, location aside, your perfect holiday also depends on what type of things you like to do when you go abroad or book a staycation. Do you love to laze on a beautiful golden beach, watching the world go by? Or maybe you get a buzz from exploring a fast paced city? Is taking your family with you the most important ingredient to a successful holiday? We process thousands of holidays every day – and this means we have a pretty good idea of what people want out of a November trip.

Different types of holidays in November

As the school term is in full swing in November, long family holidays can be tricky to pull off. However, many families are able to squeeze in a long weekend at this time of year. Popular short haul destinations for UK families include Edinburgh, London and Manchester. These classic British cities each have their own distinctive personality and even the shortest of breaks can be very special. Many families book theatre tickets, which is a great way to brighten up a wintry November weekend, whether you head to London's West End or Edinburgh's Playhouse.
Maybe you’re a professional with lots of holidays still to take before the end of the working year. Make the most of your remaining holiday time with a trip to the beach – what a great way to dispel the winter blues! You don’t have to travel too far to find good weather either; flights and hotels in the Canary Islands can be organised in minutes when you book with Expedia. For the trip of a lifetime why not take a long haul flight to Barbados and spend a fortnight in the Caribbean sun?
City breaks are an excellent way to relax in style during November. You might want to explore a top city while it’s a bit quieter after the summer months, or maybe you have an early Christmas shopping trip planned. Of course it could just be the prospect of few nights in a luxury hotel that grabs you. Fly short haul or long haul to a wonderful selection of world cities with Expedia.

Where to go on holiday in November

If you are planning to get your Christmas shopping done early (and planning a thrilling holiday at the same time) it is difficult to ignore New York City. Winter in the Big Apple is magical, from the ice skating rink to the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, and there is no gift you won’t be able to find in the city's shops. For a shopping trip with a difference, head to Tokyo, the capital of Japan. This fascinating city is at the forefront of technology and you’ll find many unusual stores for those unique present ideas.

If you just can’t get past the lure of the beach in November, consider flying to Durban in South Africa. The climate in South Africa is incredible during November, and along with beach days you could travel inland and go on safari. Thailand and Dubai are also spectacular at this time of year if you love the sunshine.
