With direct flights to Thessaloniki from Dublin Airport during the summer, why not visit the popular Greek resort of Halkidiki. I found a great deal in the 4-star Halkidiki Palace Hotel.

Best family deal:

This super deal includes flights, transfers, checked baggage, all meals and drinks! Use code SAVE125 to save €125 off the listed price.
Always wanted to cruise Alaska but thought it was too expensive? This great cruise deal from Princess Cruises makes it very affordable. Fly direct with Aer Lingus to Seattle on the 12th of September and enjoy a seven-night Alaska cruise, plus an overnight stay in Seattle – all for just €1499!
Best long haul offer:
South Africa is one of my favourite countries so when I see cheap flights to Cape Town, I am always interested. Ethiopian Airlines is offering return flights to Cape Town from just €399 in September / October. There are two short stops involved of 1 hour each, but for €399 including taxes, I think its worth it. I flew with Ethiopian Airlines on my last trip to South Africa and found them great to fly with. If you prefer to fly a more direct route, flights with KLM via Amsterdam are €500 return on the same dates.

Best city break:
It’s never too early to talk about Christmas shopping, right? If you are thinking of a Christmas shopping break in New York, now is the time to book it. Airfares are at their lowest, and hotels are offering some great early booking discounts. I’ve got four-night breaks from €596 in this post.
Select Hotels of Ireland is offering 2 nights for the price of 1 on a wide selection of hotels. Prices are available from €129 for a two-night stay for two people, with breakfast included, in the Falls Hotel & Spa, Co. Clare and the Clifden Station House Hotel, Co, Galway. Many more hotels are available.
Prices are correct at the time of issue but are subject to change. Please note some of my best travel deals include affiliate links where I receive a small commission if a booking is made.
