Three of the Best Short Haul Holiday Hot Spots


Are you hoping to travel abroad in 2012? The current economic climate has meant that fewer holidaymakers are venturing abroad for stints in the sun. With cheap Tenerife holidays and bargain holidays in Cyprus on offer online, why settle for a staycation this summer?

1.       Cyprus
Holidays in Cyprus offer the most varied resorts and most sensational climate in the Mediterranean. Whatever your travel tastes, the birth place of Aphrodite caters for love birds, families and party rockers alike.
Limassol’s shallow waters are superb for young families, while Paphos is a great all round resort for couples, culture lovers and families with plenty of sightseeing opportunities as well as a local waterpark. Ayia Napa is the place to be if you are looking to hit the clubs on the island.

2.       Rhodes
Rhodes is officially the driest island in the Mediterranean with over 300 days of sunshine every year. Whenever you choose to stay from mid-May to October, you are guaranteed to experience gorgeous weather.
The striking resort of Lindos is home to the Acropolis of Lindos, one of the most visited landmarks on the island. A favourite spot for couples tying the knot, Lindos boasts some of the more elite hotels in Rhodes.
The tip of the island is reserved for those who want to experience the best of both worlds – Rhodes Town is an eclectic mix of old and new, with the ancient walled town standing adjacent to the cosmopolitan centre.

3.       Tenerife
Cheap Tenerife holidays are excellent for those travelling on a budget. As part of the Canary Islands, just off the coast of Africa, Tenerife benefits from sensational summers with highs reaching 30 degrees C. 
Once of the livelier Canarian destinations, Tenerife resorts are active with plenty of watersports lining their 16 blue flag beaches.

Wherever you choose to stay, search online to discover some of the best prices on holidays in Cyprus, Rhodes and Tenerife.

Overbooked Flights Being Banned

Sometime ago, I read through a bloggers’ horrific experience with one of the budget airlines in the country. She may have had fun with her Boracay vacation with her friends, even raved about their Boracay hotel but her experience with the budget airlines was the extreme opposite of her pleasant experience at the island-paradise.

They were bumped off the overbooked flights and worried that they might not make it on time to report for work on the next day, they begged to be accommodated. However, they were not the only ones begging to get accommodated. What also exacerbated their situation was that the ground crew were aloof, arrogant and unresponsive to their plight. At the end of her post, she promised that she and her friends might pursue a legal case against the budget airline.

This nightmarish experience is not uncommon among budget airlines. Trying to recover the revenues lost from their promos, overbooking the flight somehow helps but the travelers unwittingly suffer because of this. Fortunately, the country’s aviation regulator is banning the overbooking of flights effective June 15. I hope this will prosper, for the sake of the travelers.
