Your Next Holiday Could Be Sooner Than You Think!
Your Next Holiday Could Be Sooner Than You Think!
Sponsored post in association with the British Airways American Express® Credit Card
As you must have guessed by now here at The Style Traveller HQ we’re a little bit obsessed with travel. Be it to bask in the sunshine, have some much-needed down time, discover new places or do something more active we are not alone.
The lovely guys at The Culture Trip have been doing their research and they’ve discovered there are four main reasons that people chose their escape: Climate, Relaxation, Adventure and Culture.
With those four incentives in mind, I’ve teamed up with the British Airways American Express Credit Card to give you some serious destination wanderlust.
Destination 1 – Mykonos, Greece
Reason for travel: Climate
Get there with: 20,000 Avios (return from London)*
Best time to go: While the summer season in Mykonos runs from May till September, you can enjoy the warmth on the whitewashed terraces of this spectacular Greek Island all year round. Spend the day at one of its many stylish beach bars such as Scorpios next to Paraga beach, then watch the sun go down from the Old Town. Enjoy a chilled aperitif down at the waterside cafes with the famous Mykonos windmills providing a majestic backdrop
Destination 2 – Budapest, Hungary
Reason for travel: Relaxation
Get there with: 15,000 Avios (return from London)*
Best time to go: Budapest is a great summer escape, a beautiful city set around the river and grand palatial architecture. It’s equally beautiful in winter, when it’s romantic and filled with festive spirit. My favourite place to visit in the city, any time of year, is the Szechenyi Baths. Built in 1913, with a famous yellow façade, the spa uses natural, medicinal, hot spring water to re-energise, cleanse and recuperate tired city dwellers and tourists alike.
Destination 3 – Zermatt, Switzerland
Reason for travel: Adventure
Get there with: 9,000 Avios to get you to Geneva (return from London)*, then it’s a scenic drive to Zermatt
Best time to go: Winter season in Zermatt runs from December through to March. Where better to find your inner action hero than on the slopes of this Alpine resort. Whether you’re a skier, boarder or adrenaline seeker who likes parasailing down the side of a mountain, Zermatt has all your adventurous desires covered.
If after all that excitement, you’re in need of a little off-piste time, enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride around the quaint resort, then indulge in a mug of hot chocolate and a fondue in front of a roaring fire.
Destination 4 – Seville, Spain
Reason for travel: Culture
Get there with: 15,000 Avios (return from London)*
Best time to go: Seville is the cultural heart of Spain. The compact Spanish city of Seville is filled with decorative art and beautiful architecture. During the summer enjoy the views from the chic roof terraces and great al fresco restaurants, which line the pretty streets. Visitors to the city’s most popular attraction, The Alcazar Royal Palace and Gardens, will recognise it as the location of Dorne from the hit TV Series Game Of Thrones.

Those 4 reasons are very true and I need a relaxation holiday on a beach somewhere stat! lol. I travel for culture as well as I love to experience something new whenever I’m away from home.
I totally agree x
Such gorgeous pictures! You really do make the traveling lifestyle look glamorous!
These pictures are gorgeous and all of these destinations are already on our list! I’m excited to use your guide as a reference when we’re visiting the beautiful destinations!
Oh thanks so much x
definitely a style traveller! i think greece would be the place i would pick first among your destinations and then seville (we have been to seville, once years ago, but we need more seville)
oh yes do x
I love that you listed Mykonos as a destination! I am Greek and I love our islands! I wouldn’t say no to some skiing though!
pictures are gorgeous and place looks good too. this beautiful place is always good to rove with the family.
OMGosh your photos make me want to escape and get a vacation in asap! I love that we an easily afford to travel and have a holiday whenever with these great rates.
These reasons are very true. Among the destinations included here, I’d like to go to Mykonos and Budapest.
You should they are great
Incredible photos and great tip on the British Airways American Express Credit Card!
All of those look amazing truly. I would love to visit any of them. But Spain and Greece would be the highest of my priorities on this list. I love the look, the scenery and the culture of those marvelous places.
OMG the holiday isn’t over! Reading you blog makes me dream of my next destination and I can’t wait to book my flights. BTW, your dresses are inspiration as well!
Greece would be such a neat place to visit!!
Looks like you had an amazing time! You make me wanna travel more❤
I’ve been saving up avois points for a while, I really need to see how much I have saved. Hopefully it will be enough for a holiday this summer x
I really need a holiday, we have not been able to get away for a few years now anywhere would be lovely right now x
Greece and Spain is my favorite. This year in 2019 I will be visiting there as my sister in law is from there. Greece as per is a beautiful place with lovely and great people.
Wow these trips look amazing!!
Ooh that would be amazing! We have a holiday booked for may but I really want to get something booked before and also for the Summer. I want to take the kids skiing too!
You are well travelled. I am loving your holiday photos here. Need to plan my next trip.
Looks like you have been to many of the worlds most beautiful places! Great photos and blog!
Thanks so much
Mykonos is on my destination list! I love Greece and go almost every year but that is one island I have no hit up yet! Santorini is another beautiful Greek island well worth a visit!
Both are great
All these bright, warm ad cheery pictures are making me so gloomy!! It’s 15F here and we all need some sun! Also BA need to chill with their prices as they are not cheap…not from the U.S. that is.
Oh i hoped they offer wanderlust not gloom x
These are all amazing destinations, and it would be tough to decide which one to visit first! I have to say I would probably go with Mkyonos based solely on it being warm and sunny compared to our winter weather here.
I love it there
I definitely need to add Hungary to my “Places to visit ” list! It looks gorgeous and you look so relaxed. I am bookmarking this page as I type so that I can start planning for next year!
It great there
All great choices of destinations from London and a good variety as well when it comes to the 4 reasons why most of us choose to travel. Nice offering from American Express also, as there are a few options that exist on the market for reward programs like these. It all helps to stretch our money further and see more interesting places in the process.
It really does x
Ah! I really need to get a better credit card so that I can save up for more travels. Great idea!
Seville, Spain is such a great place to visit. O always dreaming of going to there. Truly a bucket list material.
It’s so gorgeous there
We love Spain and try to go there each year, my inlaws have villas out there. We are going to Italy in the spring, I cant wait!
I were at Santorini last year, it’s really magic! The next travel I think could be mykonos or some other greece islands…. yes…. I’m in love :D
i love it there
These are great places to visit, especially the ones by the beach.
Such beautiful pictures! I think Greece might be first on our travel list.
I am not at all a traveler, but Switzerland might be a fun place to go.
I desperately need a holiday, it has been a few years since we last went, but my Daughter is ill which means we just grab a night or two away when we can x
Wow, I love to travel! All those places worth a visit definitely! Thank you for sharing!
