Top travel tips for 2015

It’s ski season, but prices will be at the top of the slope for thrill-seekers looking to get their snow-fix in the February half-term, with flights to Geneva costing as much as a trip to Australia.

With the fall in oil prices, holiday-makers might have thought that air fares would fall, but unfortunately for Brits, the weak performance of the Pound against the Dollar has put pay to such hopes.

The biggest announcement of the year in the travel world will be Sir Howard Davis’s recommendation on how to solve London’s air congestion problems, as he advises the winner of May’s general election on where to add to the capital’s current resources.

Regardless of the runways, British Airways will be cutting their business flights during summer 2015 to provide more sunny options for holiday-makers, while Virgin have added some interesting new destinations in North America.

Finally, for those with a fear of flying, Eurostar will be giving you a direct route to the Mediterranean, with a service from London St Pancras all the way to Marseille, starting in May.
