May is an ideal time to go away, maybe for a short break or second holiday, or if you're eager for sunshine but want to avoid the summer crowds. You can also pick up bargain May Holidays if you depart early in the month and steer clear of the Half Term school holidays later on in May.
May is a great time to escape for some guaranteed sun and come back with a tan that'll make your colleagues green with envy. We have a huge range of holidays to choose from, and some of the many advantages of taking a May holiday include reduced prices, quieter resorts and beaches, and cooler weather - as opposed to travelling in peak summer time when it can be almost too hot.
May short breaks are popular with people who want to make the most of May's two bank holidays, although prices do tend to be slightly higher at these times. Some of our most popular May holiday destinations are Turkey, the Canaries, Portugal and mainland Spain thanks to the rising temperatures and the sandy beaches and resorts that are open all year. Holidays in May are also popular with retired customers, who favour places like the Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol, and Malta.
If you're after hot sun, why not go one step further and try Africa, Egypt or even the Caribbean, where temperatures can reach above 30ºC in May.
If you fancy something further afield, long haul holidays in May can be absolutely fantastic. Mexico and the Caribbean Islands are very popular with romantic couples, while places like Sharm El Sheikh and Taba are hotspots for all age groups, and particularly for scuba divers. For the more adventurous, Thailand and Goa provide excellent value for money.
