Is the offer improper for you?
If yes, is it inadequate to your age? to your gender? to the location you're in? to your personal preferences about travelling and transportation? to your profession? to your family status?
Do they display information in the wrong way? For example prices in wrong currency? times for wrong location?

Is your opinion about spamming in general relevant?
If you found their offer in the internet while looking for holiday offer, would you still say that they know nothing about you?
Are details of the offer relevant, besides the fact that they offer flights?

So the holiday destination itself is irrelevant, but there's a relevant aspect of it, correct? (according to answers on Jan 29, at 3:36 and 4:05).

Anything related to passport/border control/police relevant?
Are you formally/legally forbidden to go to the destination?

RECAP:
Some travel group sent me an email advertising their flights to warmer places than where I am currently; this is the only thing relevant about their offers... I really wouldn't mind one of their holidays; I'd probably enjoy one - so why do I feel like they don't know me well at all?

Apologies if I repeat anything, I'm just working off the recap...

Is there some reason why you cannot go on the holiday? Why you can't go right now? Why you would rather go somewhere else? Go at another time? Book with a different travel company? Have you had a relevant holiday in the past? Do you have one planned for the future?

Are you currently in a cold place? If so, do you live there? Have you always lived there?

If you lived in a tropical island, would you get to the same conclusion: that they don't know you?

They don't know your opinions, right? So...
About warm places/destinations? About companies like them? About politics? Economy? Health issues? Weather? Environment? Legal matters? Safety? How other people see you?
Do many people have the same opinion as you or it is quite uniquely yours?

So you received this email because:
You live in London?
You live in the UK?
You live in a place which is cold now?
Would you have received this email in a warm month (such as July)?

I'm a little confused by your answer to Redwine above - you said it was relevant, but didn't say which one was true?

Was the thing that showed you they didn't know your opinions connected to:

The fact a travel company would send you an email?
That fact they offered you a holiday?
The fact that the holiday was in a warm place?
The fact that you live in a cold place?
The fact they emailed you at all?
The address they sent it to?
Something else relevant about the company?
Something else in the email?
When they sent it?
What you would have had to do to take advantage of the holiday offer?

If you lived in another cold place, but not London, would you still have received the e-mail? Would your statement still be true in that case?
Is your opinion about cold places? Winter in cold places? Is your opinion about warm places? Winter in warm places?
Is an activity relevant, which requires cold places?
Do you prefer taking holidays in other times of the year?

Do we need to discover why you spend winter in cold place? Is your profession relevant? Your hobbies?
If you wanted to go for one of the offered holidays tomorrow, would it be possible for you?

Recap:
I received an email offering me holidays to warm destinations I would be happy to visit.
I currently am in a cold place.
There is no reason I need stay in the cold place and no reason why I may particularly want to stay. Nevertheless, something about the email I received made me feel like the group sending it "don't know me at all!"

do they refer to you getting away from things you don't actually feel a need to get away from?

to experience new things you have in fact already experienced?

to beat the winter blues when in fact you don't get blue in winter?

Does it mention a type of clothing you won't have to wear on holiday (coat, hat, gloves etc)? Have you just bought a new item of winter clothing and want to wear it? Do you like winter clothing?

Does it mention a hot-weather type of clothing that you could wear on the holiday? If so, one that you wouldn't want to wear?

Did the email include a relevant picture? Is it only text that is relevant?

Did it say something like 'throw away your hat and scarf'? 'leave your hat and scarf at home'?

Is the reason they don't know you because you like wearing hats and scarves (or have a particular set that you like?) and so what they said wouldn't appeal to you?

do you design hat and scarves?

do you never wear hats and scarves? maybe for religious reasons?

do you always keep your head covered, whatever the temperature?

****** Spoiler ******

The subject line of the email read, "[name], Fed up of wearing hats and scarves?"; a failed attempt at targeted advertising because, as Enjay deduced, I really like hats and scarves! I don't mind cold weather when it comes around as I look forward to having an excuse to wear them :D
