Travel Challenge: Family California at Easter
Friday 24 February 2012
Each week we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a twin-centre, 10-night family holiday in the Golden State, split between Anaheim – the gateway to Disneyland – and a coastal city. Prices are for two adults and two children. Each includes room-only accommodation, car hire for the duration and flights from Heathrow to Los Angeles in the first week of April.
