Here at Coast we have recently launched our new travel insurance scheme and holidays have become a hot topic of discussion. The Coast team have come up with a top 5 types of holiday that they enjoy with family and friends.

Beach Holiday
If you spend your days longing for sun, sea and sand then a beach holiday is ideal for you. There are so many choices for beach holidays all over the world and these can include a range of accommodation options to suit your preferences and of course your budget. You could opt for an all-inclusive 5 star hotel in Mauritius or a self-catering adventure to Australia to soak up the sun on some of the world’s most beautiful beaches.

Suggestions from the Coast team: Greece, Mexico, Florida, Australia, Thailand, France and the Maldives.

City Break
Whether you enjoy the hustle and bustle of markets or like to relax on a romantic getaway, city breaks can offer something for everyone. You can explore different cultures, visit world famous attractions, admire beautiful architecture and treat your taste buds to new culinary experiences. One of the best parts of a city break is you can fit it in over a long weekend or tag it on to the beginning or end of a longer holiday.

Suggestions from the Coast team: Vienna, Prague, Berlin, Barcelona, Rome, Amsterdam

Winter Sports Holiday
If you are looking for a holiday with plenty to do then why not hit the slopes on a winter sports holiday. There is so much fun to be had on a winter sports holiday, you can ski, snowboard, toboggan, ice-skate and really spend some quality time with the family. Not only is there lots of activities you also get to take in some breath taking scenery. Some ski holiday locations that are considered the most draw dropping are the Matterhorn mountain in Switzerland, the Dolomite mountains in Italy, Mont Blanc in France and the village of Alpbach in Austria.
