Taking the family away for the October holidays needn’t break the bank with fantastic deals available on flights and accommodation. It’s a great chance to discover a new area or country, enjoy the outdoors and get together for a relaxing time with the family. Many of our sites have indoor pools and with temperatures averaging in the early twenties in some areas, it’s definitely going to be warmer than in the UK. Plus the added bonus of being away from the ‘to-do’ list and housework means you can focus on chilling out and enjoying time together.
Top Tips for Canvas Holidays in October
Pack some layers – though it can be nice and warm during the day, it can get chilly overnight – think shorts and t-shirts and sweatshirts and a light jacket for the kids.
Get active – it’s not warm enough for sun bathing, but you can get outdoors and soak up some vitamin D while having fun with the kids, try crazy golf, hire bikes, go for a beach walk, take a picnic.
Enjoy some culture – it’s a great time of year for exploring towns and cities without the intense summer heat and queues. (Even just admiring the architecture can work up an appetite for lunch!)
We’ve listed some of the best offers below to give you a taster, but there’s much more to discover on the October offers page of the website and if you’d like to chat through your holiday and get some tips from one of the call centre team (who are all Canvas experts) give them a call on 0345 268 0827.
