Escape the Christmas Stress with a Holiday


Many people love nothing better than holing up at home over Christmas and carrying out all the usual traditions. However, all the shopping, wrapping, cooking and cleaning can be hard work, especially when you throw in a full diary and endless visiting obligations. If you’re not in love with the festive period it can quickly turn from a pleasure to a chore, leaving you wishing that you could just escape until New Year!

If this sounds like you, why not be selfish and get away from it all this Christmas? After all, it’s your Christmas too, and you should be able to celebrate it where and how you like. Tell family and friends firmly that you won’t be around to host guests/visit/tick off every item on your never-ending Christmas ‘to do’ list, then get online to find your perfect way to celebrate the holiday season.

Whether you choose skiing in Switzerland or lazing on a beach somewhere hot and exotic you can get your holiday off to a stress-free and relaxing start by booking to spend the night before you fly in an airport hotel.

Travelodge has five Heathrow hotels to choose from, with low prices – find out more at the Travelodge website.

Why not start as you mean to go on with a few drinks in the Heathrow Central Travelodge bar before retiring to your comfortable room for a worry-free night’s sleep?

We all know that the traffic can be hectic over the festive period. Staying over at the airport the night before you fly means that you don’t have to worry about traffic conditions causing you to miss your flight on the very day you should be leaving all your troubles and stress behind. Enjoy a night’s extension to your holiday at a Heathrow Travelodge and you can even check in from your hotel giving you time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the morning instead of rushing to make check-in before the desk closes.

Perhaps you’ll travel with a loved one, your family or friends – or maybe you’ll choose to leave it all behind and head off on a solo trip? Whatever you decide to do with your precious holiday time, remember, Christmas is a time to relax, indulge and enjoy.

There’s no reason why you should miss out on the festive atmosphere if that’s what you want. Choose Lapland for a magical trip, a winter sports resort or a city centre break for guaranteed festive cheer. If, however, Christmas really isn’t your thing, there’s nothing to stop you from forgetting all about it and instead enjoying a sunlounger and cocktails by the pool!

If it’s more a case of festive fear than festive cheer in your household, ring the changes this year and get away from it all on a well deserved December holiday. Leave stuffing the turkey, wrapping endless gifts and entertaining great aunt Mary to some other sucker and celebrate Christmas your way this year!
