The new year is fast approaching and many of you will be thinking about a holiday to get away from it all. After all, a trip gives you something to look forward to in the dull first few months of the year.

Thinking about January and February probably sends a shiver down your spine. The months after Christmas are always chilly and wet, so looking into that holiday now will hopefully help to ease some of that dread. Holiday bookings made in the winter season give you the chance to grab excellent early travel deals with great savings.

In this article, we’ll look at the top vacation destinations for 2020, and hopefully help to inspire you with your choices.

Japan is definitely one that should appear high on your list of potential travel destinations in 2020.

2: Georgia

Not the state in the USA, but the country tucked away in the Caucasus Mountains. Georgia is appearing on many top 2020 destination lists, from Elle to Good Housekeeping, thanks to its quiet and laidback atmosphere, wonderful scenery and unspoiled green countryside.

Georgia is now easily accessible from most countries. ABTA have even put Georgia in its top 12 list, placing it at number 3. If you’re not one for big crowds or places with lots of tourists, then Georgia could be the destination for you.

3: Netherlands

NetherlandsWhether you want to witness the blooming of the tulip fields, see the famous windmills or experience the Eurovision Song Contest (yes, that’s right,the global singing even will be hosted in Rotterdam, the Netherlands in 2020) then this little European country could be the one for you.

4: Can’t decide on a destination? No worries! Try a cruise…

You’d be surprised at the destinations on offer from a cruise company. Looking at P&O cruises, you can see how many destinations are on offer with them alone, from Caribbean getaways to visiting the magnificent fjords in Norway,not to mention a trip around the Mediterranean. Gone are the days when cruises offered limited travel destinations.

And the great thing about a cruise is you often visit multiple locations, meaning you’re not confined to one area. Imagine telling all your friends you visited several exotic places all in one holiday. It would be a great conversation starter!
