Escape to Croatia from £ 76 per person
Still known as one of the less developed European destinations, Croatia is worth exploring now before July when it joins the EU and will no doubt see an influx of tourists. Visitors to Croatia can experience the country's diverse scenery, take in the capital city Zagreb's café culture, island hop around the Adriatic Sea or visit the UNESCO World Heritage City, Dubrovnik.

Relax in the Maldives from £ 528 per person
With 80% of its 1,200 sun-kissed, paradise islands no more than 1 metre above sea level, it's predicted that within 100 years the Maldives could be underwater.

Head to Cuba from £ 513 per person
Cuba is often considered to be trapped in time, giving the country a unique appeal popular with tourists who enjoy holidays off the beaten track.
