Q. I am an individual traveler and would like to visit a Greek island for a cheap beach holiday in October at a family hotel. Can you help?
Kristin, via e-mail
The Holiday Guru recommends visiting one of the southern islands of Greece in October, such as Crete (above)
A. The temperatures in Greece are falling in October, so a southern island would be the best. Average daily highs are quite a 23c in Crete. A week stay at the friendly, comfortable Lavris Hotels and Spa in Gouves, 600 meters from a beach on the north coast of Crete, costs £ 489 for a single traveler departing from Gatwick on October 6 (0871 4743000). onthebeach.co.uk). You can also try Sunvil (020 8568 4499, sunvil.co.uk).
Q. We are planning a villa holiday in Croatia for ten adults and a child. It would be great to have a swimming pool and also to be near a beach. Can you recommend a safe website for booking a holiday?

A. HomeAway has many suitable options with properties from around £ 110 per night with a minimum booking of four nights (homeaway.co.uk). Or view Oliver & # 39; s Travels (oliverstravels.com) and James Villas (jamesvillas.co.uk).oliverstravels.com) and James Villas (jamesvillas.co.uk).
Q. What is the best way to get from Toronto Airport to Niagara Falls?
Carol Logan, via e-mail
Niagara Airbus arranges direct transfers of around 80-90 minutes from Toronto Airport
A. This is difficult. Public transportation between the two is not the largest, requires niggly changes and takes three to four hours. Niagara Airbus, however, arranges direct transfers of around 80-90 minutes from around £ 80pp return. See niagaraairbus.com.
