Winter sun doesn’t have to mean long-haul flights and jet-lag. For gentle sun, look no further afield than family-friendly Tenerife and the other Canary Islands, Malta, Cyprus, the Algarve, Madeira and the Azores.

There are also a number of medium-haul winter sun options, including Cape Verde, Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia and Jordan. Meanwhile, the likes of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Oman are only just in the long-haul category (flights take about seven hours). The Middle East as a whole starts to cool down from October but is best saved for February half-term.

For warmth without jet-lag, South Africa is a great choice – its summer lasts from November to February but isn't excessively hot, while its winter months are pleasant. Other winter sun favourites are Florida, the Caribbean, Thailand, Zambia, and Mauritius, Sri Lanka and other Indian Ocean destinations.
