If you’re looking to book a luxury holiday on a budget in 2013, you’re in luck. Now you can pick up cheaper holidays to glamorous locations that promise sunshine, culture and adventure without breaking the bank.
The British have always had a soft spot for holidays in Spain, and when prices are lower than staying at home for the summer, it’s not hard to see why. According to the Post Office’s annual Holiday Money Report, Spanish resorts are up to 40% cheaper than they were five years ago. More than enough reason to start scanning resorts for the best bargains.
It’s all about where to go in Spain. Should you take your holidays to Benidorm on the Costa Blanca, indulge in a week on Majorca or swap your sun cream for sound systems in Ibiza? Wherever you choose, Spain’s rich mix of culture and home comforts will inspire an amazing getaway.
If the idea of Spain seems a tad familiar than you’d like, then let loose with a trip to Egypt. A true gem of North Africa, holidays to Egypt are all about certainties: blazing heat, crystal-clear water, pristine beaches and incredible food.
With the sheer number of great package deals available at the moment, you shouldn’t be afraid to step into the lesser-known. A country synonymous with history, the country of Egypt offers much more than sun, sea and sand.
A short-haul flight takes you to the Red Sea resorts of Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada. Spectacular coastline, coral reef snorkeling and stunning facilities await you there, and for all those in search of a boogie, the buzzing nightlife is likely to keep you entertained until the early hours.
Experience the hustle and bustle of the souks or stroll along the bank of the River Nile in Luxor, where trips and temple visits are the norm. Or go all out with a stay in Giza, just a short drive from some of man’s most spectacular architectural accomplishments, the Pyramids. Wherever you decide to visit, you can be sure you’ll create memories that will last a lifetime. Whether those memories are of face-to-face encounters with tropical fish or grumpy camels on a desert excursion, that’s up to you!
The saying goes that you get what you pay for. However, nowadays there are holiday destinations where you get much more than that. Whether you’re looking for the familiar or the exotic, the inherent charm of Spain and Egypt as holiday destinations make them places not to be overlooked.
