It’s official! The vaccine requirement to enter the USA is over. After three years of travel restrictions, transatlantic holidays can be as simple as book, pack, go, again.

And when it’s your turn to uncover America, here are 5 ways to ensure your holiday was worth the wait…

Group Villa Holidays

Now that the whole family can be invited, what better way to make the most of it than by booking a group villa holiday? Better yet, the right villa can deliver the added privacy you need to fully indulge yourself in family time. Somewhere close to the action, yet still far enough away to make room for holiday memories together. And remember, the self-catering aspect of most villas is more important than ever. This way, you can cook up a storm for an affordable price and when you feel like it, splash out at a restaurant.

In Florida alone, we have over 2,000+ villas for you to choose from with expert guidance. This collection includes large group favourites like Reunion Resort Villas. For example, at 683 Reunion Resort, up to 18 guests can sleep across six spacious bedrooms, with private balconies overlooking the pristine pool, and even a home cinema. Plus, Star Wars and fashion-themed bedrooms ensure there really is something for everyone.

And if you end up inviting everyone you know, there’s always 672 at Solterra Resort. Sleeping up to 28 guests in a gated community, you’ll be beside beautiful lakes and luscious greenery located just a 20 minute drive from Walt Disney World.

Explore Natural Wonders

Life may be returning to normal, yet we understand that not everyone is ready to walk amongst the crowds again. If you find yourself still adjusting – or you’ve simply always loved solitude - then we can help you find the natural wonder for you. 

Luckily, you won’t have to look far in the USA. First, there are iconic wonders like the Grand Canyon that is within easy reach from nearby Las Vegas. If you are California dreamin’ consider the lush landscape of the Yosemite National Park, where majestic sequoia trees line your trails.

Or, if you’re looking for complete serenity, Hawaii’s Volcanoes National Park is sure to do the trick. Home to two active volcanoes, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is more like walking on the surface of a moon than being in a national park. 

And, if you fancy combining stunning scenery with a bit of wildlife spotting, Florida’s Everglades National Park is worth exploring. This fascinating network of wetlands, forests and waterways is home to the State’s most famous resident, the alligator, as well as another notable native, the Florida Panther.

Moreover, Florida is filled with natural wonders, ranging from the vibrant Florida Reef spanning 350 miles to the mystical caves of Cavens State Park, located in the Florida Panhandle.

Multi-Centre Holidays

What better way to make up for lost trips than by seeing more for less?

Multi-centre holidays are tailormade for more memories. From shopping ‘til you drop on New York to laying on white-sand beaches in Miami. Or from stargazing in the Caribbean to walking in the footsteps of celebrities in California – multi-centre holidays let you dream bigger. 

And why stop at two destinations? With the help of our Travel Specialists with first-hand experience of the States, we can you plan a personalised package that rewrites your travel wish list. 

What’s more, remember that you don’t have to jump from East Coast to West to book a multi-centre holiday. You could fall in love with Florida a place at a time, hopping from beach to beach or finding the right balance between thrills and chills without having to travel far.

Road Trips 

Car hire companies had a tough time during the pandemic. But now that demand is back, stocks have been replenished and reasonable rental prices have returned. That means it’s time to get behind the wheel again. After all, hitting the open road is almost a rite of passage in the USA. The hardest choice is deciding which route to take. 

The most popular option is the iconic Route 66 that takes you across eight states, from Chicago to Los Angeles, covering 2448 miles.

Yet there are also much shorter road trips that as equally rewarding, like the Big Sur. Despite being only 90 miles long, the Big Sur is one of the best-in-the-west road trips that is renowned for its natural beauty. Spectacular coastal cliffs climb between Carmel and the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains taking you to Hearst Castle, 80-foot waterfalls, a National Marine Sanctuary, Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, Keyhole Rock, Bixby Bridge and more.

Whichever road trip you choose, our Fly Drive packages can ensure you are fully prepared. We offer 24-hour roadside assistance, state-of-the-art sat navs from just £6 a day, online check-in, and comprehensive insurance. What’s more, our Florida-based team will be on hand 24/7 to provide any extra support needed during your holiday.

Visit Florida

When the pandemic hit and people wanted to escape the crowded cities, many headed to Florida – and we certainly don’t blame them!

Now, the Sunshine State is still booming, and tourists are joining the party. All the biggest attractions, such as Walt Disney World are well and truly up and running without restrictions and with plenty of new attractions to boot. 

Plus, there’s nothing like the Floridian culture to help you get back to sunshine and good times. Whether exploring the art deco dreamscape of Miami, brushing up on your history in the oldest city in the USA – St. Augustine, or relaxing in the southernmost subtropical paradise of Key West, Florida still has much to be uncovered.
