The Algarve, Portugal
For a budget friendly holiday in the sunshine, the Algarve is an easy choice, lots of different types of accommodation, a short flight and great for families, couples and groups of friends. Stay around Vilamoura if you want to be close to the airport, or perhaps a quick city break in the sun in Faro might be up your street.
Another classic holiday destination Benidorm on the Costa Blanca is almost a home away from home...almost. Great beaches, bars, restaurants and loads to do make this an easy choice if you're looking for a cheap holiday in the sun. There are plenty of self catering options to keep the cost down too.
Head to any of the Greek islands and you'll certainly enjoy the sunshine, culture and hospitality that Greece has to offer. Crete has a great range of options from budget friendly accommodation to luxury resorts, to suit all travellers.
Fancy filling your boots? For an all inclusive holiday from Newcastle, head to Antalya and choose from the incredible all inclusive resorts on offer. Many offer huge swimming pool complexes, beachfront locations and even some of the best swim up rooms in Turkey. Bodrum and the Dalaman region in Turkey are also on offer.
For some tropical sunshine, you can either fly direct to Barbados with TUI at certain times of the year, or you can get a connecting flight through Heathrow with British Airways. Barbados offers some truly unforgettable beaches, and some of the best in the Caribbean, and flying direct from Newcastle makes it even easier to enjoy a little bit of paradise.
For year-round sunshine, Dubai is that ever popular holiday location. While the summer months of July and August can get sweltering, the balmy winter months between November and February can be a great option if you want to escape for a bit of winter sun. Why not enjoy a stopover in Dubai for 3 or 4 nights on the way to somewhere far flung, like Thailand or even Australia?
New York, USA
Although there aren't any direct flights from Newcastle to New York, you can get a connecting flight through London, Paris or Amsterdam, making a holiday in Manhattan a great option, even if just for a few nights to watch a Broadway show, munch on a hotdog and capture a glimpse of the State of Liberty.
