You can fly direct to many destinations from your local airport. We spoke with Tony Mann of Idle Travel, local independent travel specialist to find out which holiday destinations are going to be popular this year and are accessible direct from Leeds/Bradford.

Palma – The capital of the island of Majorca, located in the bay of the same name, enjoys an excellent climate all year round. Known for its sun and beach tourism, it also has an attractive historic quarter. The Cathedral, the Almudaina Palace, the Lonja fish market and Plaza Mayor are some of the sites that are well worth visiting.

Faro – Portugal offers something for everyone. Faro as a holiday destination is often overlooked which has allowed Faro to retain its peaceful ambience and traditional charm that is centred around the pretty walled Old Town. Situated on the edge of the Ria Formosa national park, you will find a series of saltwater lagoons and mudflats that are a haven for migratory birds and wildlife. Faro’s beaches and are some of the least developed in the Algarve and there is a wide range of cafes, restaurants and bars, and many of these are aimed for Portuguese customers, offering traditional food and exceptional value.


Italy – Relax on the shores of Lake Garda which sits in the foothills of the majestic Dolomites and offers breath taking views, charming restaurants and gorgeous trails for walking and mountain-biking. Admire the beauty of ancient Rome, from the dramatic Colosseum to the peaceful Palatine. Glide by gondola down the Grand Canal in the iconic city of Venice. Visit Florence, the driving force of the Renaissance, which created a heartbreakingly beautiful city boasting an abundance of cultural treasures.

Explore the picturesque town of Alberobello in Puglia which appears to have sprung out of the pages of a fairytale book and is famous for the distinctive conical roofs of the white-washed Trulli houses that pepper the pretty landscape. Italy truly has something for everyone.


The Canary Islands – Looming volcanoes, prehistoric sites, lush pine forests, lunar landscapes, sandy coves and miles of Sahara-style dunes. Yes, there is another world beyond the Canaries’ seafront resorts. The Canary Islands boast near-perfect year-round temperatures, which means whether it’s summer or winter you can enjoy the dramatic and varied landscape here that you usually have to cross continents to experience. Hike the signposted footpaths that criss-cross the islands, ranging from meandering trails to mountains treks; scuba dive in enticing warm waters, marvelling at more than 350 species of fish (and the odd shipwreck); or pump up the adrenalin by riding the wind and the waves – kitesurfing, windsurfing and surfing are all big here.
