So far so mild, but you just know that a good (c)old British winter is coming down the line, and when it does, you want to make sure you're as far from it as possible. Oh, and ideally staying somewhere with a juicy special offer. As luck would have it, here are a few of our latest, exclusive autumn/winter sun offers.

Monastero Santa Rosa, Italy

First, something for lovers of the last minute (or last minute lovers, for that matter) at one of our favourite hotels in all of Italy, the glorious Monastero Santa Rosa. We have an exclusive 25% off four night stays plus a €50 food/drink credit per couple at the hotel until they close on the 4th November.

Little Good Harbour, Barbados

On the other side of the pond, the Caribbean is technically in hurricane season until the end of November but seasoned insiders (that's us) know that some islands - due to the quirks of their meteorology and geography - virtually never get hit. Take a bow Barbados, with an average of one hurricane every 20 years.

Those are our kind of odds, and even better Little Good Harbour has a cracking 50% off for stays of longer than 5 nights.

The Kamalaya Koh Samui, Thailand

Next stop Thailand, and Koh Samui's delicious Kamalaya, who are now offering (on top of their existing specials) complimentary room upgrades for guests who book one of their spa packages. Spa bunnies please note - you will receive a complimentary lotus scrub and wrap per guest.

Gold, Zanzibar

Then we're off to East Africa and Gold on the idyllic island of Zanzibar on Tanzania's beautiful coastline. Stay a week here before 23rd December this year and pay for only five nights with a complimentary massage thrown in for good measure.

The Oberoi in Hurghada, Egypt

Finally, we're keen to help out our friends in Egypt who are, as you can imagine, having a torrid time of it at the moment. At time of going to press there were no travel restrictions on flying into Hurghada (or Sharm el Sheikh) so for luxurious accommodation on the Red Sea, it doesn't get much better than the Oberoi Hurghada where you can stay for seven nights for the price of six until Boxing Day.
