If you’ve been shivering in the British snow, take a trip to Tenerife to warm up! According to the Met Office, the next few days will see temperatures of 18-20C (65-68F) – not surprising when you consider that the Canary Islands are south-west of Spain, and are actually as close to the equator as African countries like Morocco and Egypt! However, by going to Tenerife you can avoid political instability and take advantage of low-cost European travel insurance with EHICPlus. You’ll also find that Tenerife is not as humid at this time of year as it is in the summer months. For maximum warmth, head to the south of the island. There are still things to do in Tenerife at this time of year, with colourful parades and carnivals in February and March. If that’s not quite your thing, feel free to stay on the beach!
