August holidays are traditionally the main holiday season for many people, - and not just those with children. They’re also popular with couples and groups because they offer the hottest temperatures. Most people look forward to their August holiday as the highlight of the year, when work can be put on the back burner and family or friends can jet off on Airtours flights or Package Deals for a well-deserved break.
Top destinations for holidays in August include the Greek islands, the Algarve in Portugal, the Costa Dorado, Costa Brava and Costa del Sol on Spain's Mediterranean coast, and the islands of Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza that make up the Balearics. These are all relatively short haul flights, leaving more time on the beach or around the pool for rest and relaxation.
If you want to venture further afield you could head for the United States and take a flight to Orlando where you could choose Room Only, Bed and Breakfast or Self Catering. You'll also be close to the many magnificent theme parks that draw millions of visitors every year, which are great for the kids or a group of friends.
For an All Inclusive holiday, where your food, drinks and accommodation are all part of the price, take a look at what the island of Cyprus can offer; you could even choose Half Board or Self Catering so you can explore the local culinary delights yourself.
