Create your own festive break

The festive period is always a magical time to take a short break abroad. Many European towns and cities host charming Christmas markets, so you can soak up the sights, sounds and festive atmosphere while you’re away.

It’s easy to create your own festive break; simply book your crossing on one of our 5 routes to Europe and book your own accommodation with our partner Booking.com.
