After Christmas, January can often seem rather cold, dark and depressing! For many people, there is no better time to get away to the winter sun. Our top picks include the perennially sunny Canary Islands (try Tenerife, Lanzarote or Gran Canaria) for those on a budget or glitzy Dubai and up and coming Abu Dhabi for fun in the middle-Eastern sun.
If you prefer your winters to be wintry, why not check out picturesque Salzburg or even Munich for easy access to the Austrian alps. It is also worth remembering that some of the most popular city breaks are much cheaper at this time of year – you can get great deals on breaks to cities such as Prague, Berlin or Barcelona!
