The month of December has been highlighted as a great time to get away by one website.

The month of December has been highlighted as a great time to get away by one website.

RTE Money said that if you feel like doing something different to the usual festive routine of visiting relatives and eating too much, now and the coming weeks are ideal to take off to see what the world has to offer.

It especially recommends holidays in South Africa for people keen on seeking some sunshine instead of the cold weather that Britain is currently experiencing.

“South Africa is buzzing in December, with the whole country on summer holidays,” RTE Money commented.

The country currently offers great value for holidaymakers thanks to the strength of the rand against the pound.

It also will not give visitors jet lag since it is within the same time zone as the UK.

Anyone interested in taking holidays to South Africa may be pleased to know that Virgin Atlantic offers direct flights there.
