Discover the hottest destinations for your last-minute summer holiday (Picture: Getty Images/EyeEm) Been meaning to book your summer getaway since… last summer? Well, it’s never too late to book your next hot holiday. Set off for summer in the city with a short stay in New York, or hotfoot it to the beaches of The Algarve at a moment’s notice for an extended break a bit closer to home. Even a trip a tad further afield to Dubai is at your fingertips if you’re keen to snap up a good deal! Because a last-minute holiday needn’t feel like last resort with thousands of great value packages to be found with British Airways Holidays. With everything from city breaks to relaxing beach escapes, British Airways Holidays can build your ideal getaway, combining the best prices on top quality hotels and fuss-free car hire with their trustworthy flights. All you have to do is choose which of these hot destinations to travel to this summer… The Algarve The Algarve is getting hotter, and we’re not talking about the temperature. It’s because more people are travelling to Portugal than ever before, with tourism in the country increasing year-on-year. And it’s not hard to see why. Award-winning beaches, luscious landscapes and fabulous food are all just a three-hour flight away with British Airways Holidays. Simply pick a sun-soaked spot somewhere along the 150km of coastline and get stuck into a slower, more laid-back way of life in the southernmost region of this beautiful country. Book a 7-night stay in Algarve in July, staying at the Pinhal do Sol hotel from £429pp with breakfast and flights included with British Airways Holidays.

That’s because, with so many incredible hotels in New York – from boutiques to glamorous high rises – there’s always a new way to see the city, no matter how many times you’ve been. Feel the summer heat alongside the city slickers by toasting your trip while checking out the vista from a rooftop bar (Mr Purple at Hotel Indigo boasts a swimming pool and amazing Moscow Mules) or how about getting on your bike and taking in New York’s own oasis, Central Park? If you want to be by the water, shop up a storm at the stylish South Street Seaport, which is the perfect place to make a splash during hot summer days. There’s the Five-Star InterContinental Barclay overlooking Manhattan’s Midtown, or the Grand Hyatt just off Grand Central Station and the gorgeous 1920s-style Roosevelt on Madison Avenue. All of these hotels are available to book with British Airways Holidays which includes a comfortable return flight to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) or Newark (EWR) out of the UK.

And with a large selection of hotels, from family friendly to adults only, savvy holidaymakers are starting to discover the hidden side to Tenerife. There’s no better way to start seeking out the hidden gems of this sun-drenched travel treasure trove than by hiring a car as part of your BA Holidays package. That way you can experience a different vibe; explore La Laguna, a charming and colourful colonial town which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Or, rather than an afternoon led on the famous volcanic black sand of Tenerife’s beaches, why not see one up close? In Teide National Park, you’ll be left awestruck by its namesake volcano, which at 3,000m above sea level also claims the title of being Spain’s highest mountain. Book a 7-night stay in Tenerife at the Santa Barbara Golf and Ocean Golf Club Diamond Resorts from £399 for travel in July with British Airways Holidays.
