Where to go on holiday in October

Looking for a holiday in October? – In some places it’s not autumn yet!
Recharge with a holiday in October before the cold sets in.

October is a great month for a holiday. You can catch the last of the summer warmth in the Mediterranean with average temperatures still around a comfortable 25 or 26 degrees Celsius, and the sea has warmed up during the summer. The crowds will be gone, and if you’re lucky, you’ll even have a beach to yourself.

Saying that, the UK often has some lovely autumn weather with wonderful autumn coloured foliage. So if you want to stay closer to home, check out our short UK breaks and getaways. Here you can always soak in an outdoor hot tub, or enjoy an evening with a good book in front of a roaring fire!

To check local temperatures about two weeks in advance, we recommend the BBC weather website. Once you are away the Met office site provides also useful local details.

For pretty much guaranteed warmth in October, head to the Canary Islands in Spain, Asia, or Northern Africa for your holiday, see latest choice on our destinations page. And see following our pick of where to go on holiday in October.
