The Best Destinations for a Last-Minute Holiday in 2017

Whoever said failure to prepare is preparation for failure clearly never experienced the thrill of being spontaneous. While it's all very commendable to plan things months and years in advance, sometimes it's just wonderfully liberating to make a snap decision. Never more so than with planning holidays. Forget the Year of the Rooster, 2017 is turning out to be the Year of the Last Minute Merchant. Lucky for you, we know all the best spots to head to in the next couple of months…

Spotlight on Latin America

Latin America has it all, whether you're meandering through the bustling, colourful markets of the world's highest capital city, La Paz, reclining with a robust malbec in Mendoza, or soaking up the sun on the picture perfect beaches of Brazil. It's a region that has enthralled Original Travel clients for years with its heady mix of colourful culture, fascinating history, dramatic landscapes, delectable cuisine and some of the best boutique hotels in the world. And never has this region been more accessible, with more and more direct flight routes having been added by major airlines in recent years, including Bogota, Santiago (starting January 2017), Lima and San Jose (goodbye to the horror that is a stopover in Miami airport). So with 2017 on the horizon, here are six of our favourite Latin American experiences…

Christmas Getaways: Time To Start Planning

Talk of Christmas already?!? Before you think we've gone all Argos on you, the majority of great festive season holiday spots do get booked up well in advance and as travel guardian angels we naturally only want the best for you.

Whether you want to embrace yuletide traditions or get away from them, here's a little selection for you.

Holidays To Belize and Guatemala

One of our favourite pairings for a truly original holiday, Guatemala and Belize are still relatively unhindered by heavy tourist trade. Latin America expert Sas divulges her favourite - and most poignant - moments of a recent trip...

I wanted to write about my pleasurable experience in dealing with Original Travel UK. They selected hotels for us in London, Oxford, Bath, Liverpool, and Cardiff that are absolutely amazing. We can't thank her enough. I'll be certain to direct anyone your way. Thanks for a job well done.
