Spring is in the air and March is a lovely time to soak up the year's early heat and sunshine or enjoy milder temperatures if you've set your sights on a hot holiday destination.
March is the perfect month for a long-haul city break as it low season and means you can save on flights to destinations like Los Angeles, which celebrates the lively St Patrick's Day party and hosts the first LA Performs event in 2016.

Mid-haul, the Middle East is ideal in early spring when the temperatures are bearable. Jordan is one of our all-time favourite destinations, where you experience adventure in Wadi Rum, relax in the Dead Sea and marvel at magnificent Petra.
Closer to home, the Northern Lights are calling and Norway is an excellent place to witness the natural wonder in March when sufficiently dark skies combined with milder temperatures make for more comfortable viewing.
City breakers will love the offerings from Spain, Greece and Italy, too. Ski conditions are also good in Europe throughout March, while tour operators often have problems filling beds, so you can take your pick of the resorts.
