Tenerife

Rainfall: Only 2 days of rain on average in October

Nothing could be further than a miserable rainy October day in the UK to one spent immersing yourself in the volcanic majesty of the Canary Islands. Tenerife is the best known of the islands, famous for fashionable cities, picturesque coastline and breathtaking natural surroundings. The island has an array of incredible activities for families, including Siam Park, a world-class waterpark with exhilarating rides.

Greece

Average temperatures: Highs of 24°C
Time difference: 2 hours ahead of the UK (GMT +2 hours)
Flight duration: Between Greece is about 3-4 hours long
Rainfall: 7 days of rain on average in October

The landscape of Greece is so varied and dramatic that you’re certain to find something to suit your October half term holiday needs. Mainland cities are packed with culture, fine dining and history, the countryside is as idyllic as they come, and, for those of you who feel the call of the ocean, an island-hopping adventure is the stuff that dreams are made of.

Morocco

Average temperatures: Highs of 28°C
Time difference: 1 hour ahead of the UK (GMT +1 hours)
Flight duration: Between 3-4 hours 
Rainfall: 3 days of rain on average in October

The bustling souks, unique architecture, culture, and history, landscapes that seem to be taken straight out of a fairy-tale, and sumptuous luxury that rivals anywhere else in the world. This is what you can expect to find if you jet off to the romantic shores of Morocco for an exotic October escape filled with sights and sounds that are irreplicable elsewhere.

Mauritius

Average temperatures: Highs of 28°C
Time difference: 4 hours ahead of the UK (GMT +4 hours).
Flight duration: Approx. 12 hours long direct
Rainfall: 10 days of rain on average in October

Mauritius is the proud home of 177km of glistening, unspoiled coastline, boasting a magnificent ecosystem of bright fish and coral reefs. This makes Mauritius an ideal destination for beach and watersport lovers. Further inland you’ll find tropical beauty equal to that of the sun-kissed coast, with dramatic mountainscapes and cascading waterfalls. Wherever you roam, you’ll find vibrant Mauritian culture and a warm welcome.

Dubai

Average temperatures: Highs of 35°C
Time difference: 4 hours ahead of the UK (GMT +4 hours)
