Welcome to India

Holidays in India – they mean something different to everyone. Chaotic streets, fragrant bazaars, awesome sights and sun-soaked beaches, this is one seriously incredible melting pot that'll wow you like nowhere else on earth. One of the most diverse countries you could ever visit, in India no two days are ever the same. Or even similar for that matter.

In the north you've got the magnificent snow-dusted Himalayas. Below, lies the capital Delhi, an ancient city and modern metropolis rolled into one. Here, in a place where time-ravaged ruins neighbour chi-chi bars, and bullock carts race the latest luxury cars, you'll be hard pushed to keep your chin off the floor. The country's chaotic capital aside, you simply can't travel to India without taking in the Taj Mahal in Agra. Arguably the world's greatest love token, it took 22 years to build and when you see it you'll understand why. It's mind-boggingly beautiful, to put it mildly.

When you're not posing for pictures on that famous Lotus Pool bench, there's tiger-spotting in the jungle. Camel safaris across the breathtaking Rajasthan desert. And when you're ready for a rest, there's sun-blushed Goa, where porcelain-white sands melt into a bright blue sea.

So, whether it's last minute holidays to India you're looking for or luxury breaks in the sun – we've got the full spectrum of deals to choose from.

All you have to do is decide what travel to India means to you…

 

Temperature

India can basically be split up into 7 different climatic regions which play host to 4 different climates. As you move around India you will find a variety of weather conditions ranging from tropical wet to tropical dry and subtropical humid to montane.

Extending from 8 degrees north to 33 degrees north and with a wide variety of terrain it is understandable why such a variety of weather conditions prevail. India is home to the highest mountain range in the world- the Himalayas, so here you will find permanent snow fields that are frozen year in year out. As you move south and head toward the tropical coastlands you will find conditions that are fairly typical of a tropical climate. In the vast plains of the Ganges valley, summers can get unbearably hot and even in the winter months the conditions stay fairly warm.

As a whole, India’s climate is driven by the Asiatic Monsoon system which differs from any other weather system in the world in that the winds which determine the climate are ever changing from year to year, and there is no predictable weather pattern from year to year as the prevailing winds can change direction at any point in time.
