Apologies for the cockney reference (‘Monkey’ = £500) but we’re excited. None of these deals are literally under a real monkey. That would be ridiculous.
As summer approaches (perhaps in name only), the time has come to plan an excursion to a country that perhaps knows a little more about what summer entails (hot weather, no low cloud, fewer sheets of unforgiving cold rain, etc.). Luckily, the thoughtful souls at a certain leading international shipping company for those moving things around the world have found a number of deals priced under £500 for those looking for an affordable trip this summer.
Airholidays are offering a sensational deal to Crete for 7 nights at the Aquis Silva Beach Resort including flights and free transfers from £325 pp. Not to be sniffed at. This offer is valid in June, September and October.
For a more relaxed city break, we recommend Travelwasp’s offer to stay 3 nights in Amsterdam at a 4 star hotel between June and September. Expect to fork out a mere £159 pp for the privilege.
Southall Travel are currently providing flights to Dubai for £353 return including taxes, allowing you soak up the sun, do a little shopping and revel in the uneasy affluence of this billionaires’ playground.
Fancy an all-inclusive trip to Turkey this summer, staying in the Halici Semera Holiday Village in Marmaris? Broadway Travel will charge you an unbeatable £249 pp.
Another matchless city break offer comes from Packageholidays4less who are offering 3 nights in Barcelona at the 4 star Salles Pere IV Hotel for only £189 pp. This offer includes flights plus a free Montjuic cable car ride! Plus if you eat out in the city, you may also find your table being waited on by a man who looks like Peter Sellers. That’s what happened to me. If you see him, say hi.
If you need a little help with excess baggage for your summer holiday, don't forget to get a free online shipping quote from us. We're shameless, but we're also great at what we do.
