With the focus during the Christmas season on buying for others, many welcome the January sales as a perfect way to tilt the balance back and indulge in all sorts of bargains – especially the clothing kind.
However January sales don’t necessarily have to be about shopping and carrying big plastic bags around busy streets. What if instead of treating your wardrobe to a makeover you treated yourself to some well-earned rest, good food, maybe a massage and the odd spot of sightseeing?
We’re thinking a different kind of January sales this year – luxury hotel January sales.
We have selected affordable offers at 4 and 5 star hotels in some of our most popular European destinations for you to choose from. Many of the hotels are offering great, discounted rates for the new year as well as packages and deals that include luxury extras.
