Top travel destinations for summer 2018

The choice of destinations for summer 2018 can make deciding where to go rather difficult. So, why not make the most of these cheap summer holiday deals with a trip (or two) to an exciting new destination? The following five destinations offer great value for money, and something a little different when compared to your more traditional European and Mediterranean resorts.

1. Sicily, Italy

Oozing history and intrigue at every turn, Sicily is the must-visit island in the Med for 2018, and thanks to the new route direct from Birmingham to Comiso with Thomas Cook Airlines, you could find yourself there for less than you might expect next summer. Everything from volcanoes and ancient ruins to beaches, water sports and pretty hilltop villages await in Sicily - not to mention the incredible, unrivalled, pizza!

As for the weather, while Sicily is enjoyable all year round, with daily highs of 28°C in July and August, not to mention up to a whopping 11 hours of sunshine, there's plenty of opportunity to bask in warming rays and just let life pass you by while taking in the beauty of this historic Italian island.

2. Bali, Indonesia

An oldie but a goodie, Bali remains an undoubted hit with holidaymakers and travellers alike. Combine its beautiful beaches and luscious landscape with its wonderful weather, not to mention the fact that it's a great value destination, and it's easy to see why people continue to flock to Bali's shores. People flock to this Indonesian island for a taste of paradise be it by the pool, exploring rice paddies, on the water or in the spa.

4. Porto, Portugal

Forget Lisbon - for 2018 it's all about Portugal's second city, Porto. Whether you're tempted by the promise of the best port you'll ever taste, keen to go bridge spotting on a Douro River cruise, an avid fan of historic architecture and picture-perfect terracotta roofs, or simply fancy an easy weekend escape from the UK, the Porto is the place for you.

Summertime offers long, hot days with lots of sunshine and virtually no chance of any rain, ensuring that the weather in Porto is at its best in July and August. On top the existing routes, British Airways has added two new routes to the Portuguese river city, direct from Manchester and London Luton.

5. Cuba

We've said it before and we'll say it again: Cuba is a truly authentic destination, and although the Caribbean is often thought of as winter sun region, the weather in Cuba in summer is simply delightful, albeit for a few passing tropical rain showers. Cuba is also easier to reach than ever before with more and more holiday companies and airlines offering deals on flights and breaks to this charming island that's simply bursting with character and charisma.
