But as the nights draw-in and the temperature begins to dip, it's only natural to look for ways to escape the arrival of autumn.
As travel restrictions continue to ease and simplify, more and more airlines are starting, resuming or increasing services from Manchester Airport, the UK’s global gateway for the North.
Whether you fancy a quick hop to the Balearics, Greece or the Canaries, or something further afield like Barbados or the Middle East, Manchester Airport has it covered this October Half Term.
Here is a selection of flights, package deals and offers from a range of airlines flying out of the Northern hub.
All prices quoted are correct at time of print and are subject to availability. For more information see the airlines’ websites, or for more on Manchester Airport see www.manchesterairport.co.uk.
