Happy New Year everyone!

January always brings mixed emotions. There are resolutions and great plans flying around, but there’s also a hint of doom and gloom as people battle their way through the cold and get back into the routine of being at work. Sound familiar?

Here at Holiday Discount Centre, January always means planning where to travel this year – which countries to visit, which cities to explore and most of all, how to do this on a budget!


We decided to put together a calendar of great festivals and events that are happening around the world in 2016 to help kick start your travel plans and give you some destination inspiration. Scroll through the months and click on each event to see more details.

Make sure to check back throughout the year as we’ll be adding to this as and when we hear about exciting events that are taking place!

Have any events caught your attention? Top tip: copy them over to your own calendar and make a trip to that country your goal for 2016!

Other than travel, what are your New Year’s resolutions? Let us know over on Facebook and Twitter!
