					THE YEAR OF THE DOG.
A TAIL-WAGGING, STICK-CHASING,
TONGUE-PANTING YEAR FOR FAMILY TRAVEL
And what a start to the year it's been - a whale in the Thames, Chantelle
winning Big Brother and even the Lib Dem leadership election has proved
interesting. Let's face it, the Year of the Dog is wagging its tail in
excitement.


And it's not even half term yet.


Even our 'holiday truant' poll made the national newspapers. With 78%
of you saying the Government was wrong to impose fines on
parents wishing to take kids out of school for term time holidays.


Please take a leisurely stroll through our exclusive news and offers whether you're looking to Take the Family on a
half term break or a full on getaway.
