Escaping from the winter in February can be tricky, so here we round up some great ideas to help you get the holiday you need and deserve...
With the Med still in the grip of the winter months, you need to be flying for at least four hours to get some sunshine.
The best value options are the Canary Islands, with temperatures in the mid-20s and a full day of sunshine. Heading further afield to destinations such as the Red Sea, Florida, the Caribbean, Maldives, Goa and Dubai will also give you plenty of sun to top up your vitamin D levels and give you a healthy looking tan.
Cities also make a great option for this time of year. However, for the more northern cities you will definitely need to wrap up to fight off the chilly temperatures. But with lots to see and do they make fantastic locations for family holidays. From Athens and Rome through to Berlin and Stockholm, and of course the classics such as Paris, Amsterdam and Barcelona, there are plenty to choose from. And at this time of year you'll also get great holiday prices with cheap flights and hotels on offer.
If you don't want to travel overseas or are looking for a shorter break, there's also plenty to do on our doorsteps, whether you want to introduce the kids to a city within the UK or enjoy some quality time as a family on a UK cottage or holiday park break.
