Also look at All Inclusive deals in Cuba, Mexico and the Dominican Republic as well as the Maldives and Goa (India).

Winter Ski wise you could look to Poland, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania

For next years summer sun  the Black Sea Bulgaria (Fly to Bourgas or Varna), Romanian Black Sea coast  (Fly to Constanza) .  Turkey is on it's way back and will be fantastic value as well as Greece, although a Euro destination, because of the economic hardships has had deflation and is still cheap.  Also look at Montenegro as well as Croatia.

Getting there, you have the normal Low Cost airlines,,, currently flys to Constanza as well as Bulgaria and other eastern european destinations, is planning to operate a Southampton programme to Bulgaria, Greece, Romania, Croatia, Bari southern Italy and Spain.. The best search engine for fares is
