How to Escape Bad Weather

Travelling abroad often has its pitfalls whether itís forgetting your tooth brush or not enough underwear, but one we rarely expect is bad weather. Clear blue skies and soaring temperatures is always a given in the holidaymakers mind, however Iím sure more than a few of us have experienced grey days which have done their best to ruin our summer retreats.
To be fair most occurrences of bad weather are rare and when they do happen, itís rarely for a sustained amount of time. However, this applies mainly to the typical summer months which run from June to September in Europe. There are plenty still travelling to various destinations within the Canary Islands as the tropical climate means that there is good weather all year long, but not without its wet seasons.

It would serve anybody well to check the predicted weather of a destination for the time period youíre thinking of travelling. The likes of Tenerife, which is the most popular of the Canary Islands, welcomes many holidaymakers over the typical winter period who are looking to enjoy some warmer weather compared to back home. Tenerife weather is more or less consistent and tends to remain above 20°C during most days. Perhaps what is just as attractive to tourists is the price of a trip to the Canary Islands during a time which is considered out of season for most people. If youíre good at bartering a holiday package then you can see hundreds of pounds in difference to the prices quoted for the same holiday during summer months.

The likes of Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura are other options aside from Tenerife when it comes to winter tourism. No matter where you choose from those options Iíve just mentioned, one thing is for sure and that is that whatever the weather, good or bad, you can be assured it will be better than back home!
