destination choices including flights to Lanzarote (, Rome, and other European
spots, the site can help customers narrow down the options for their next

"Having polled different star signs internally to uncover their travel
personality, we found that while individual tastes may vary in general, the
ideal destination choices that were made shared many of the same
characteristics as their horoscope personas," says Nadine Hallak, Travel
Expert for (

"Personally, while I'm not typical of my own sign, I found that the
starry description fit my travel personality incredibly accurately," adds

So whether you're a fiery Aries, earthy Taurean, aquatic Scorpio, or airy
Aquarius, put a little 'horo' in your travel scope for the upcoming long
weekend and be inspired by destinations to match your personality.

Here we explore 5 of the 12 star signs and what their ideal destinations
would be for a short break as well as what their dream destinations are for a
more extended holiday.

TAURUS: Taureans love their comforts. An earth sign, they don't like to
stray too far into the unknown. Routine and familiarity is prized highly by
Taurean travellers. You got a beach? They'll laze there, all day long.
Taureans are also drawn to the natural world. Getting back to basics, where
true values hold sway, is important.

Destinations ideal for short breaks: Paris, Rome, Tallinn

Dream destinations: Auckland, Hawaii

SCORPIO: Dynamic, passionate and independent, Scorpios make great solo
travellers. They're drawn to exotic destinations, diverse landscapes and
plenty of colour. There should also be lots going on so that Scorpio
travellers can expend all that energy they have. They like structured
holidays, but not so much that every moment is accounted for. A holiday that
combines some type of personal growth (a yoga course, for example) in a
beautiful setting is heaven.

Destinations ideal for short breaks: Barcelona, Crete (, Sardinia

Dream destinations: Argentina, Maldives

CANCER: Another home-loving sign. Not surprising when you consider that
its symbol is a crab. Wherever they go, their house - and all who live there
- come too. Holidays with loved ones in destinations that deliver on comfort
and the good things in life are high on their list.

Destinations for short breaks: Budapest, Bodrum, the Greek Isles

Dream destinations: Amman, St. Petersburg, Lebanon

LEO: Leos know their place. It's in the sun. The destination they choose
to holiday in should be just as stunning as they are, but not more so. Leos
love to be admired and you'll find the skimpiest of beach wear in their
suitcases as they climb aboard flights to Miami ( and similar, sun kissed
destinations glamorous enough to show off their toned physiques and all-round

Destinations for short breaks: South of France, Capri, Monaco

Dream destinations: Miami, Seychelles

GEMINI: Gemini sets the pace on holiday and it's a fast one. Energetic,
adventurous and brimming over with childlike curiosity, they need constant
stimulation, lots to see and do, and other travellers. Gemini travellers need
more than just a beautiful beach. Ideally they'd have a beach, with a small
village close by, preferably with mountains, ruins and museums and a
metropolis for urban adventures.

Destinations for short breaks: Tuscany, Provence, Valencia

Dream destinations: Egypt, South America
