Our best sale: on show now

You might feel like the holiday season is coming to an end – you’re back at work, the skies are grey and the snow (which were it to dust our rooftops before Christmas would be lovely and festive) is delaying journeys and making walking down the street precarious. In fact, this coming Monday, 21 January, has been scientifically proven* to be the most depressing day of the year.

Scientists* developed a formula to pinpoint which day of the year our mood is lowest:

Where W = weather, D = debt, T = time since Christmas, Q = time since failing New Year’s resolutions, M= low emotional levels, and Na is the feeling of a need to take action.

According to this equation, 21 January is officially Blue Monday. But we think the scientists who developed this formula left out an important element – that is, the incredible January flight and holiday sale!


There’s no better time of year to take advantage of the cheap flights on offer at Flight Centre. This January, you score flights to warm up in Dubai from £319pp, hit the sales in New York from £379pp, forget that winter even exists in the Caribbean from £492pp, or escape it entirely Down Under with Australia flights from £666pp.
