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.Amex gstaad avios points winter sun

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.

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.
