With winter fast approaching, many of us are probably plotting a getaway or two. Whether a sun holiday is your thing, or you're all for the cold, as long as it's not in Ireland, we have everything you need to know with our weekly #TravelTips. 

1. Visit Andorra for an unforgettable ski getaway

There's something about braving the cold, wind and snow in another country that makes ski holidays even more appealing. Maybe it's the excuse to buy a whole new winter wardrobe. 

Either way, Andorra is a stunning destination for a snowy getaway. For those who like some activity with their relaxation, skiing is the best of both worlds. We wouldn't say no to a day in the great outdoors followed by an evening of hot chocolate by the fire. 

2. Plan your dream Honeymoon with Gohop

One of the most exciting parts of getting married is planning the honeymoon - the idea that the stress is passed, the cake cut and you can kick back with your partner far, far away. So don't let this part become just as stressful as the rest! 

Take the time to plan your dream honeymoon, with spots in some of the most jaw-dropping locations on offer like Thailand, Hawaii or New York City. 

3. Let’s talk winter wonders with Hayes & Jarvis Ireland

Budget airlines and cheaper accommodation has made it easier to nab a sneaky winter holiday or two, and there's definitely nothing better than staving off that Christmas dread. By being clever with your annual leave, you can even get 11 days off to go galivanting around the world. 

So what to do with so many days off? Choose from 12 days in Thailand, 10 nights in India's Golden Triangle, or even 14 nights in South Africa, if you've a little more AL to spare. Ensure you face the Christmas season glowing from within and without.
