Cheap New Year Holidays

Return refreshed and ready for the start of the new year

If you're determined to escape the turkey leftovers, another repeat of The Sound of Music, and the sales rush, book a New Year holiday in 2011 with The Co-operative Travel.

New Year holidays abroad are becoming ever more popular, with growing numbers of people looking especially to escape the cold and darkness of our European weather and find some unseasonal sunshine.

It especially makes sense to find a New Year holiday deal if the time you can take away from work is limited to when the children are off school. And a New Year holiday abroad will ensure that you'll return refreshed and ready for the start of the new term.

Because holidays which take in both the Christmas and New Year periods tend to be the most popular, it can be difficult to find a holiday which takes in just the New Year.

But with the increasing popularity of New Year celebrations in major cities such as New York, Paris, Sydney and Berlin, you have a truly global choice of locations for your New Year holiday.

Times Square is New York's equivalent to London's Trafalgar Square, with the 60-second countdown to the end of the old year marked by the dropping of the giant crystal ball, at the end of which the skyline erupts into a multicoloured blaze of fireworks.

Paris, of course, has a natural centrepiece for its New Year celebrations in the shape of the Eiffel Tower. Each year it is brilliantly lit, and makes an amazing sight when fireworks soar into the surrounding sky. And a Disneyland Paris New Year break will give the kids plenty to tell their friends about when they return to school.

If you fancy the idea of clubbing your way into the New Year, then a New Year break in the Canary Islands or Cuba is made for you. Visitors to the likes of Fuerteventura and Havana don't really need an excuse to party, so you know that a New Year holiday at one of these established hotspots will be loud, lively...and unforgettable.

The hospitality on a Sharm-el-Sheikh holiday is beyond compare. Hotels really push the boat out, often laying on a gala dinner or buffet. Dressing to impress is definitely the order of the day, and a sparkling night is rounded off in many establishments by top-quality entertainment.

However you like to ring out the old and ring in the new, The Co-operative Travel has a fabulous range of New Year holidays abroad for you. Check out the holiday deals available today, and start 2011 on a real high!
