Cheap trips from London - mid december

We are coming to the UK for Christmas. We thought we would come a few days early and look into cheap trips to a hot location. Any suggestions on where to go in Mid December and cheap flights?

Canary Islands or Madiera always seem to be the 'likely' places for some sun at that time of year.

Although I hate to admit it, package holidays can offer great value, so you could look online at such sites as Teletext holidays, First Choice, Thompsons. Failing that, find a high-street travel agent when you arrive, and see what last minute deals they have available.

You can usually get a week in Luxor, Egypt (flight plusdecent hotel and breakfast) for around £300 in mid December. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. The weather is perfect for sightseeing then and it is very quiet as all potential tourists are preparing for Christmas.

If you come back to the UK before Xmas Day then its the cheapest time of the year to get a package holiday to the sun and its best to leave it until late for booking.

After Xmas Day on your return and its just about the most expensive time of the year.

If you return on Xmas Day be aware there is no public transport and it might be very expensive to get to your hotel from the airports.

Have a look at skyscanner.net. You can enter your departure city, your preferred travel dates, and leave the destination as either blank or "everywhere." You'll get back results priced from cheapest to most expensive. It's a great way to look at a lot of options side by side.
