Winter sun

Find your winter sun getaway...

Ah, winter. Cold, rainy winter. While snuggling up by the fire on a cold, winter’s day is good, jumping on a plane and escaping to somewhere warm is much, much better.

If like us you’re dreading the chilly months ahead and are in desperate need of some R&R, you’re in luck. We’ve got winter sun deals down to a T at Virgin Atlantic Holidays, as well as lots of amazing hotels to choose from.

Our top winter picks

Escape that chill in the air and book a holiday to somewhere fabulous. When works for you? We've got fantastic holidays on offer all winter long.

Get set, go: to the Indian Ocean

For tropical beach perfection, look no further than the Indian Ocean. The archipelagos of the Maldives alone contain more palmfringed sweeps of sugar sand than is strictly fair, while reefringed Mauritius ups the ante with beautiful nature reserves through which you can trek and zipline.
