The temperature is dropping, and Maire’s thinking about cosying up in the Cotswolds with a glass of wine (mulled, naturally) next to a 1000-year-old fireplace. And if it gets too cold, there’s always this treat-filled trip to Sharm or a scorching-hot deal for a luxury cruise...£85 -- Historic Cotswolds Country Retreat inc Dinner & Wine
£499 -- 7-Nt Transatlantic Cruise to NYC on Cunard's 'QM2'
Cunard’s famous 5-star ship, the Queen Mary 2, is a luxury that rarely comes cheap. That’s why we were impressed with this deal. If you can get away on 12 December, this 7-night transatlantic cruise from Southampton to New York, with flights back home, is down to £499 per person. It’s a £200 saving on the already-discounted previous price and includes all your meals, snacks and entertainment onboard. Plus, 12 December is peak Christmas-shopping time in the Big Apple!
£449 -- 5-Star Premier All-Inc Sharm Beach Break, £200 Off
At £449 each, this isn’t your average Egyptian week on the beach. Fly to Sharm from London or Manchester and stay in an upgraded room at a 5-star hotel. Plus, Travelzoo subscribers will be on Premier All-Inclusive board, which includes a whole stack of free extras. As well as all meals, snacks and drinks at the hotel, you’ll get a free massage, à la carte dining and a free shuttle bus to Na'ama Bay.
