My DH has a significant birthday coming up. I'd really love to take us all away as a family. 2 adults, 2 kids.
I'd really like to do something special but only have about £2,500 in total to spend. It would be great to do something with a bit of luxury rather than a standard packag holiday. Ideally half board or fully inclusive.
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on where to go or which travel agents to use? Or the best time to buy etc etc....
You may get a cruise for that amount of money dependent on the children's age - which would be full board and would also give you some ME time given the children's clubs....worth consideration...book direct !
We've been to Sardinia twice at May half term week. If you get cheap flights, a week half board might come within budget at somewhere like Chia Laguna Resort. It won't be affordable in peak week summer.
We booked with Just Sardinia and had 2 interconnecting rooms on HB basis. This was a few years ago and the exchange rate is obviously less favourable now so you basically need to get mega cheap flights.
Another place we've stayed at and would recommend is 2 interconnecting rooms on HB basis at Conil del la frontera. We stayed one Easter and is another hotel which is unaffordable in peak week summer.
Our general rule of thumb is to avoid the summer. May Half Term is usually the best for the weather and you can get pretty good prices for fairly expensive places plus no crowds in Southern Europe.
