Northern Ireland’s favourite annual celebration of travel and tourism will be packing the punters into the Titanic Exhibition Centre over January 17-19, but why do so many people choose to kick-start their annual travel plans with a trip to Belfast Telegraph Holiday World?

1. Bargains

Who doesn’t want more miles for their money? At Belfast Telegraph Holiday World canny travellers will discover special show-only deals and book-on-the-day discounts, with a host of added value extras and upgrades to stretch your travel budget.

2. Winning ways

A great value holiday is wonderful, but wouldn’t it be even better to win that trip? Look out for on-stand competitions and lucky draws which could send you travelling without dipping into your bank balance.

3. Expert insight


Travel agencies, airlines, hotel chains, destinations… they're all here, ready, willing and able to give you the benefit of their experience. Their input could take your holiday from one-size-fits-all to truly bespoke. January is also the time when holiday companies traditionally reveal their latest collections, so prepare for hot-off-the-presses holiday choices.

4. Going solo?

More people than ever before are holidaying alone and the prospect of solo travel has never been so varied or exciting. Explore your options at the show and learn how to minimise that scourge of the solo traveller: the dreaded single supplement!

5. Ready to dream big?

If you’re planning a special holiday to mark one of life’s highlights - a special birthday, perhaps, an anniversary or even retirement - then Belfast Telegraph Holiday World will help your imagination to soar. Go beyond the brochures to reveal unique and amazing travel experiences and memories that will linger long after the tan has faded.

6. Cruise news

The show is packed with all that’s fresh and exciting in the world of cruising. Whether you’re a cruise newbie or a dedicated fan; whether you want a cheeky escape or a languid ocean odyssey; whether you are looking for family value or indulgent luxury, there’s a cruise to float your boat! Check out the Oasis Travel Cruise Pavilion for offers and inspiration on voyages on the great oceans and rivers of the world.

7. The 50+ Village

Maturity brings its own rewards so prepare to take advantage of discounts and offers specifically targeting travellers in their fifties and over. You have the time, the disposable income (now that the kids have flown the nest), and the enthusiasm for new horizons so the world is your oyster!

8. Nice ‘n’ easy does it, ev’ry time

Elegant, wonderfully equipped park homes and contemporary caravans repay one-off investment with many years of holidays, with the opportunity to extend hospitality to friends and family. The Caravan & Motorhome Show has it all, including the latest models to roll off the 2020 production lines. If you plan to go further this year, you’ll also find great family-friendly holidays in campsites and park homes right across Europe.

9. Romance in the air?


Hosted by Clubworld Travel, the Honeymoons & Weddings Destinations Pavilion will help you to turn dreams to reality. From that first romantic weekend to destinations for a proposal that will captivate your Instagram audience, from shopping for the wedding wardrobe to fun hen and stag weekends, from tying the knot to celebrating anniversaries -all the world loves a lover!

10. A world of choice!


Close to home or across the globe, the show is packed with possibilities. Let yourself go!
