best travel deals

In my best travel deals this week I have last minute holidays to Gran Canaria, winter breaks in Cyprus, Sri Lanka and New York, all inclusive cruise deals and super early booking offers to Mexico and Orlando for next Summer.

 

Best last minute:

It is impossible to beat the value to Gran Canaria at the moment.  You can enjoy a week in sunny Puerto Rico for only €292 on the 19th of October, with flights, transfers and checked baggage included – this is actually less than half price! #StealOfTheWeek

Best winter deal:

Enjoy a week in the beautiful island of Cyprus this winter.  Fly direct from Dublin on the 24th of November and enjoy a seven-night stay at one of the best hotels in Paphos, the Constantinou Bros Athena Royal Beach Hotel, for only €298 with breakfast included!  This hotel receives outstanding reviews on tripadvisor, a 4.7 out of 5 rating and is exceptional value for a nice winter break.

Best family deal:

Bring the kids on a trip of a lifetime to Orlando next Summer! Stay at the newly refurbished 4* Sonesta Suites on a bed & breakfast basis for only €599 per person in May or June. The Sonesta Suites won the travellers choice award this year from tripadvisor. Ideally located within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants on International Drive and with a free shuttle bus to Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World Resort, this is the perfect choice to enjoy all that Orlando has to offer.

Best cruise:

Shore excursions on cruise holidays can be pricey, but if you book a Norwegian cruise before the 31st of October with Travelnet they will give you $50 shore excursion credit for EVERY port you stop in! I like that all Norwegian cruises are premium all-inclusive, even tips are included so you can order as many margaritas as you like 🍸. Check out the three-night Mediterranean taster cruise for €799 and the seven-night Western Mediterranean cruise or €1809 on Norwegian Epic. Prices include flights, all meals, drinks, gratuities and shore excursion credit.

Best long haul deal:

Luxury long haul operator Hayes & Jarvis have some super offers to chase away the winter blues!  My personal favourite is their nine-night trip to Sri Lanka for only €1599. Discover the diversity of this stunning island by spending six-nights in the highly rated Avani Kalutara Resort followed by three-nights on the Cultural Kandy and Tea Tour. All flights, hotels and transfers are included.

Best city break:

New York, New York – is there a better city break in the world?  Give your loved one a Christmas present to remember with a three night break in New York from only €495 in January.  Price includes return flights and a three-night stay in Wyndham New Yorker, based on two sharing. Want to do it in style? Upgrade to Fitzpatricks Grand Central for only €579.
