This week’s Best Travel Deals include Croatia, Sri Lanka, the Algarve, Nashville, a cruise sale, skiing holidays, an early booking family offer for July and some great staycations.
Best last minute:
Enjoy a week in the 5-star Hotel Croatia in the beautiful resort of Cavtat. I stayed here a few years ago and loved it. Price for flights and a seven-night stay on a B&B basis, is only €498 on the 18th of October.
Best winter break:
Skiing is best when you have a group of friends with you, and with prices from €399 to France in January, now is the time to book that ski holiday you always talked about. Direct Ski have some great value ski holidays, with flights, accommodation and transfers included from €399.
Best family deal:
Thinking about next summer already? If you want to travel in July or August, it is best to book now to secure a FREE CHILD PLACE. Enjoy a week in the highly rated all-inclusive Cortijo Blanco Hotel in the Costa del Sol from only €2418, based on 2 adults and 2 children sharing, departing the 19th of July. This price includes flights, hotel with all meals and drinks included, transfers and checked baggage – this is superb value for July!
Best long haul:
I loved Sri Lanka, it really is Asia’s best kept secret. As well as 8 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, stunning beaches, amazing wildlife and mouthwatering food – it is also great value for money! Where else would you find a 4-star all-inclusive resort including flights and transfers for €1239?
With many cruise sales ending, MSC Cruises’ flash sale is just beginning. Enjoy winter cruises in the Caribbean from €279, Mediterranean from €399 (on the brand new ship MSC Grandiosa) and the Emirates from €419. Prices are cruise-only for seven nights and include all meals and entertainment. Flight cost is extra – see your local travel agent and they will organise a package deal for you.
Best city break:
Release your inner Shania Twain and enjoy a city break to Nashville. Price for flights and a four-night stay at the popular Nashville Millennium Nashville Hotel, is only €539 per person!
I’m a bit of a foodie, so I’m loving the Taste the Island promotion that is taking place across Ireland from now until the end of November. Ireland’s Blue Book has some great special offers in many of their hotels, including two of my favourites, Marlfield House and Dunbrody House in Wexford. Prices from €129 in Marlfield House and €135pp in Dunbrody House, includes overnight accommodation with breakfast and evening meal included.
Best early booking offer:
Ryanair released their summer 2020 schedule this week and there are some great early booking bargains. I found a great deal to the Algarve, departing on the 1st of June, so you can take full advantage of the June bank holiday weekend. Price for flights and a seven-night stay at the 4-star Luna da Oura apartments is only €350 per person, based on 2 sharing. Grab a few friends and the price is even less!
Prices are correct at the time of issue but are subject to change. Please note some of my best travel deals include affiliate links where I receive a small commission if a booking is made.
