Cyber Monday may have departed but if, after dithering all weekend, you’ve decided you would quite like a holiday actually, there are still some late deals idling on the travel runway for the stragglers.
While this year had us suspended in an endless holding pattern, circling around holiday plans without really knowing if they’d take off, 2021 should bring more certainty and with it, the prospect of overseas travel.
For those torn between whether to stay or go, there’s reassurance that most deals now come with Covid cover as well as flexible dates and name changes so if things go awry, you’re protected.
So, what are you waiting for? From sun-drenched resorts to pretty B&Bs on the Cornish coast, there are plenty of offers whizzing around: these are our favourites. Catch ‘em while you can.
Fifty per cent off selected Six Senses hotels with BA
BA’s fly and flop deals offer major discounts on stays at boutique hotel group Six Senses. Our top pick is £312 for two nights in Istanbul in deepest, darkest February but there are longer stays to the Seychelles, Maldives and Phuket up for grabs too.
Three nights for two at Artist Residence, Penzance
Cornwall off-season is a breath of sea salty fresh air; crowd-free and with charm by the boat-load. Book three nights for two at Artist Residence Penzance and enjoy bracing coastal walks before hot toddies by a crackling log fire. Offer runs until March 18, some date exclusions apply. From £150pn.
Four-night Christmas break in the Highlands
