January is a hugely popular time of year for holiday bookings as the nation
fends off post-Christmas blues. After a festive month of celebrating, the
feelings quickly fade as the bills mount up, leaving Brits desperate for a
quick get-away.

Last year, figures showed that a massive 8.7 million UK adults booked their
main holiday for 2012 by 1 February. A further 8.9 million people were already
looking for deals at this time.*

The rush for a holiday bargain starts early so it could be worth booking in
advance to avoid disappointment. Here are a few cheap holidays from Direct
Holidays that will allow you to beat the blues without blowing your budget.


Ibiza's capital city, Ibiza Town is one of the dance Mecca's of the world,
guaranteed to lift your January blues and send spirits soaring. Famous for its
house and pop and dance music, Ibiza attracts some of the world's biggest and
best DJs as well as millions of holidaymakers.

There are typically two sides to the island; one where the partygoers descend
and the other for idyllic serenity. Ibiza holidays are what you make of them
and the Balearic Island offers a great holiday experience for families,
individuals, or large groups.

certainly the place to go.
