October is the start of autumn for us here in the UK; the weather is getting colder, the leaves are turning red and gold, and many British students head back to the books to get cracking on another year of learning. While the northern hemisphere follows a similar pattern worldwide, climate elsewhere is starting to get nice and toasty, perfect for your October luxury holiday! Here are three top destinations for October holidays across the world.

The Seychelles


October is really a fantastic time to visit all of the Indian Ocean islands, so you’ll find this advice applies to Mauritius and the Maldives as well. The weather is starting to warm up, but without any rain, so you’ll be experiencing the best of both worlds. When it comes to these popular islands, it can be a challenge to choose just which island you want to stay on or where you should ‘hop’ to and from. Remember that the most expensive isn’t always the best, nor is the cheapest really going to get you a decent bargain holiday. Keep an eye out for offers in this fantastic season and if you need advice, many of our staff have travelled extensively to the Seychelles and are happy to help with advice and quotes.

This popular Asian destination is right in its ‘shoulder season’ between the rainy season and the hotter dry season. This means that October is just about ideal for travel; you’ll get cheaper prices but will likely have weather that is just as nice as the next month’s, without the risk of monsoons! Malaysia has fantastic beaches and some very exciting cities, so it is well worth a visit.

Tanzania and Zanzibar are your twin centre holiday destinations for October. Tanzania is fantastic for safaris and a bit of African culture, while you’ll experience your beach holiday on the lovely island of Zanzibar. Honeymooners in particular love this combination of amazing, new sights followed up with some well-deserved relaxation, but it’s certainly suitable for everyone! October is towards the end of the dry season for Tanzania; it won’t be as hot as it gets, but will still be very pleasant, clear, and perfect weather for sunbathing.

Heading out on a luxury holiday in October means you’ll have plenty of choices and a huge variety of great experiences. If you’re free this October, give us a call and let us take care of your holiday.
