Imagine you're somewhere else
Like a warm tropical beach with a cold mango drink and nothing much to do for the rest of the afternoon. Or maybe a weekend trip to Amsterdam or New York. Anywhere a long way from work.
We've set this site up to make it easy for you to find your next holiday and we're improving it as time goes by. You're welcome to just browse, dream, and make a list of places you'd like to go. We're adding more locations and things to do every day.
We've brought together lots of sources of information for your travel so you can easily flip back and forth checking out prices or even just look at the pictures and dream of this years holiday while you should be working (yes we know most people check this site during work hours, it's OK we won't tell)
Below is a listing of the main categories we cover and as you explore the site you'll see the menus at the top of the page show the same categories. On the left are the territories you can explore. As we add more information we'll cover more places.

I’ve put these items together as they’re the most searched for topics.
Budget Airlines We’re collecting information on airlines from around the world so you can easily find which airlines from from where to where and link to their websites. It’s not fully ready yet so come back in a few weeks when it is.
Other flights Airlines that aren’t what you’d call budget airlines. National carriers and other like British Airways and KLM. Surprisingly you can often get a better price on some routes than with the cheap airlines.
Airport Information Mostly links to UK airports. Slowly being expanded to be able to get arrivals and departures for almost all airports around the world.
Package Holidays are always popular an easy way to get a good holiday at a bargain price. We’re listing all the main players and some not so well known groups as well. Also check out the Holiday Wall for a list of major companies.
Weekend Breaks Why not treat yourself, the Euro may be up against the pound but hotel chains are offering some very keen prices to attract customers. Or go wild and take a weekend break in New York. Maybe a weekend in a country house in the New Forest would suit you.
Holiday Special Offers Something to keep an eye on. There are always good deals for the taking, but not always where you want to go. If you keep up to date as the deals change you could get yourself a nice break at a nice price.
Caravans & Campsites One of our most popular search terms. So we’re expanding our listings in this area.
Travel Auction Ebay! Oh and others. Yes you can sell your holiday online, or buy a holiday from some of the major chains when they put unsold stock up for auction. Something to keep an eye on.
