Best long haul:

Bali is one of the most popular long haul destinations at the moment. It seems we can’t get enough of its tropical beaches, vibrant nightlife and spiritual centre. I found a great deal staying in the the Mandira Beach Resort & Spa. Price for flights and a seven-night stay with breakfast and return airport transfers, is only €1219 per person. Ranked as ‘excellent’ on TripAdvisor this is superb value for a holiday in this paradise island.

Best staycation:

This super deal is valid until the 30th of April, so there is plenty of time to treat the kids to a night away.
