Travelzoo Launches Hot Travel Picks in 2014

- Travelzoo’s new site section will make it easier to browse hot destination deals -

Travelzoo, the UK’s top travel and entertainment deals provider, has unveiled its Hot Travel Picks section which is set to make traveller’s lives a lot easier when looking for an excellent value getaway.

The new section will feature deals from ‘hot’ destinations in 2014 including Riga, Miami, the Greek Islands, Caribbean cruising and Sri Lanka which are all tipped to be the ‘must-visit’ holidays next year.

Caribbean Cruising

With a variety of new ships taking to the water in 2014, it is estimated that the Caribbean cruise market will have an influx of 8,500 additional cabins. Along with continued discounts across the industry, Travelzoo is offering a seven-night cruise to Florida and the Bahamas including flights to New York and transfers starting from only £979 per person.

Greek Islands

Greece’s government is investing heavily in tourism infrastructure including airports, roads and ports making it easier for travellers to enjoy the beautiful mainland and its surrounding islands. TUI is predicting a 10% rise in package holidays to the destination and accordingly, is adjusting the company’s growth plans to accommodate this rise. Travelzoo is offering savings of £340 per person on week-long trips to Mykonos; staying in a luxury hotel on a half board basis with a seaview suite and flights from just £599.


The tourist board is encouraging football fans travelling to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup to enjoy a stop-over in Miami and with a host of new hotels opening in 2014, Travelzoo predicts Miami will be the place to holiday in 2014. A five-night break staying at a deluxe South Beach hotel with flights start from £795 which includes a saving of £300 per person.


An increase of flights to Riga over the last few years has brought more competitive fares for travellers looking to explore the capital city of Latvia. Coupled with a short haul flying time of two and a half hours and that the city will be the European Capital of Culture in 2014, Travelzoo has tipped Riga as ‘hot’ for next year. A four-night break including flights, a city tour and a bottle of Latvian liqueur called Riga Balsam starts from £180 per person which includes a saving of 35 per cent.

Sri Lanka

Visitor figures have been on the up since the end of the civil war in 2009 and in January 2013 alone a staggering 97,411 international visitors visited the country, which was a 13 per cent increase on 2012. British Airways now flies from London to Colombo three times a week and accordingly, the number of operators offering holidays to the destination has increased. Travelzoo has deals which save £300 per person on a 12-night tour of the country which includes several attractions such as Dambulla Rock Temple and Peradeniya’s botanical gardens and a four-night stay at an all-inclusive beach resort. Packages start from £1,279 per person and include flights.

There will be new destination deals added to the site every day so those travellers looking to get ahead of the crowds can start booking 2014 adventures from today at
