Thinking of engagement a getaway for a sip of comfortable winter sunshine, though don’t wish a responsibility and con of drifting too far?

Options are now some-more singular – British Airways and easyJet have dangling flights to a Egyptian review of Sharm-el-Sheik due to confidence concerns, and other airlines might follow. 

Meanwhile, Tunisia is now off-limits too, as a outcome of a horrific militant conflict in Sousse in June.

So I’ve picked some choice places to go where we can design comfortable weather, though won’t have to fly for longer than 7 hours.

A word on prices: If we can get divided before Christmas, there are some good deals to be had. 

The initial half of Dec is always a comparatively still time for winter-sun breaks, and this year bookings are down due to many people’s concerns about travelling and terrorism.

For example, we have found that a week during a three-star hotel in Tenerife on a half-board basement in early Dec with Thomson now costs only £250 a head, including flights and transfers.

However, bear in mind that winter-sun getaways over a Christmas/New Year duration are looking only as costly as usual.

Hurghada

Flights continue to work routinely to other tools of Egypt, including to a Red Sea review of Hurghada. 

It has many of a same enticements as Sharm, including good beaches and diving, and packages to good-quality hotels during mostly discount prices.

I’ve found a week before Christmas comprehensive during a 4 star property, with flights, for underneath £400 per person.
