When you think of family holidays, Egypt will probably not be the first place that comes to mind but I urge you not to dismiss it until you have done your research. Egypt unfortunately has had a few issues recently with crime and in the past terrorism that has made many people stay well away, but under all of this is a country that has a wealth of history and places waiting to be discovered. Recently the Uk has started to fly to move and more destinations within Egypt. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to the Governorate of North Sinai and against all but essential travel to the Governorate of South Sinai, except the area within the Sharm el Sheikh perimeter barrier and the area west of the Nile Valley and Nile Delta regions, excluding the coastal areas between the Nile Delta and Marsa Matruh. Egypt can offer the best of both worlds, trips to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Pyramids, a tour of the Valley of the Kings or a beautiful 5 star resort where you can enjoy the finest in food and accommodation.
If you are looking for a cheap getaway for 2019 or even 2020 then now is the time to start looking. Many travel agents are already starting to promote summer holidays for next year, allowing you to place a small deposit and spread the cost of the holiday out over the next 8-9 months. If you are still looking to get away this year, then there is still a great opportunity to pick up an amazing deal. Booking in advance can have many advantages such as securing a good price, allowing you to pay for the holiday monthly and being able to have a wide selection of resorts to choose from but as things can often change in a year, it is important to ensure that you have some sort of cancelation cover that will allow you to recoup some if not all of the costs should you need to cancel.
You can also get great deals by booking last minute but you do need to consider if you have a valid passport if you have travel insurance in place or can get it and if you have got time to save money or already have money for spending. When booking last minute don’t be pressured into booking something without giving yourself time to really read through the small print and to find out if the holiday is right for you.
If you are going on holiday this summer and are going to be staying in a tent or a caravan, then you may need to start packing a little bit earlier than if you were going to be staying in a hotel or on a bed and breakfast. This is because often you need to take a lot more with you such as bedding and towels. If you are going to be towing your own caravan, then try and get it packed up as much as you can in the week or so before you go. This will allow you to enjoy more of your time when on holiday rather than having to unpack and find a place for everything.
When going on a self-catering holiday, you will often find that food is your biggest expense. Buying food from onsite shops is often not the cheapest way to fill your fridge, instead look for a local large supermarket where you can get the majority of your supplies from. You may have many items already in your cupboard at home that you can take with you to cook, rather than having to do whole shop when you are away.
The more money you can save on food the more you can spend on fun activities or treats or even put it towards saving for your nest holiday. Even taking items from home such as sauces, squash and washing up liquid will save you having to buy them again.
Fuerteventura is the second largest of Spain’s Canary Islands and is situated in the Atlantic Ocean 100km off the north coast of Africa. It is a very popular holiday destination for tourists from all over the world and especially those from Britton.
There are a number of resorts which you can chose from when staying in Fuerteventura. Corralejo is a resort at the north of Fuerteventura. It has a wealth of things to do from basking on the white golden sandy beaches, walking through the miles of sand dunes and shopping in the near by town. It is filled with designer shops, market stores and plenty of eateries and bars.
The weather in Fuerteventura is quite consistent all year round with temperatures ranging between 18 to 26 degrees all year round. The hottest temperatures are usually from June through to September making it a perfect all year round destination.

Accommodation can make or break a holiday. If you chose the wrong accommodation you may find that it has a knock on effect on the whole of your holiday and that you simply do not enjoy it. You need to think carefully about what it is you want from your accommodation before booking and ensure you read plenty of reviews. If you are just wanting a place to get your head down after a night out with friends or family then the cost of the room and location (how close it is to where you are going out) will probably be of high priority. If on the other hand you are wanting to go somewhere that you can relax in the bar, enjoy the surroundings or spend time in a spa then the facilities will probably be one of the main things to look out for.
Choosing whether to stay in a hotel or B and B is also another option you may need to consider. Many B and B’s have a policy where you have to be in by a certain time before the doors are locked, this is especially true if the B and B is also someone’s home. If you are not planning on returning until late at night or early hours of the morning, a hotel with a 24 hour reception may be better.
