Forget Saving Money With New Year's Resolutions, Book Now For 2013

LONDON, December 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

January is a hugely popular time of year for holiday bookings as the nation fends off post-Christmas blues. After a festive month of celebrating, the feelings quickly fade as the bills mount up, leaving Brits desperate for a quick get-away.

Last year, figures showed that a massive 8.7 million UK adults booked their main holiday for 2012 by 1 February. A further 8.9 million people were already looking for deals at this time.*

The rush for a holiday bargain starts early so it could be worth booking in advance to avoid disappointment. Here are a few cheap holidays from Direct Holidays that will allow you to beat the blues without blowing your budget.

Ibiza

Ibiza's capital city, Ibiza Town is one of the dance Mecca's of the world, guaranteed to lift your January blues and send spirits soaring. Famous for its house and pop and dance music, Ibiza attracts some of the world's biggest and best DJs as well as millions of holidaymakers.

There are typically two sides to the island; one where the partygoers descend and the other for idyllic serenity. Ibiza holidays are what you make of them and the Balearic Island offers a great holiday experience for families, individuals, or large groups.  

Rhodes

Rhodes boasts the best sunshine record of all the Greek islands; making it a big hit with sun seekers looking to top up their tan.

Not only does it offer a lively nightlife, there are a number of stunning historical sites to visit as well as plenty of sun, sea and sand. Cheap holidays to Rhodes are widely available but it could be worth booking in advance to secure the best prices and avoid disappointment.

Cyprus

Stunning coastal beaches set against the backdrop of a mountainous terrain- it's clear to see why Cyprus is a firm favourite amongst British holidaymakers. Home to over 50 boutique wineries scattered across the idyllic island as well as a number of natural sites, Cyprus is a popular holiday destination.

Napa is the clubbing destination, with strips of bars and restaurants open until the early hours. Whether it's a dance or a detox you're after, Cyprus is certainly the place to go.

As with all these destinations, choosing to book cheap holidays to Cyprus now could mean avoiding the New Year rush - so what are you waiting for?
