For As Little As...
Sunday 29 March 1998
(roughly) anyone over 12 years of age will be able to enter the Orlando, Florida, park Gatorland, which from June will contain one of the largest collections of crocodiles in the world. In spectacular jungle feeding displays you can view the crunching jaws of giant crocodiles instantly consume up to 20lb of red meat. Accompanied children get in for very little or nothing. Call TicketShop on 0181-600 7000 to pre-book.
you can fly to Vitoria in northern Spain, close to the Rioja area, over Easter, departing 8 April and and returning Easter Monday. The flying times are awkward but at that price what would you expect? Call Skybargains on 07000 759227.
you can take a two-night break in Paris, travelling by Eurostar from London and staying B&B in an "unpretentious" one-star hotel near the Bastille. This price is based on two sharing and does not apply during the football World Cup - and if you travel in either direction between Friday and Sunday you'll pay an extra pounds 18 per person. Call Room Service on 0171-636 6888.
per person, you spend 7 nights in the Thai resort of Phuket, if you are able to travel out between April 15 and June 30 1998. This price, based on two sharing, includes flights and accommodation on a room-only basis. Call the Far East Travel Centre on 0171 414 8844 or 0161 839 4100.
per person, you can sneak in a last-minute ski holiday over Easter with the Swiss Travel Service. This price is for the resort of Arosa, which is ideal for beginners or intermediate skiers. Price is half-board and includes all transport to and from the resort. Call 01992 456145 for more information.
you can take a week off at the relatively quiet Wekender Resort on the Thai holiday island of Koh Samui after Easter. This price includes B&B accommodation, flights and transfers. Food and drinks are exceptionally cheap in Thailand for tourists at the moment. Call Asean Explorer on 01481 823417.
horseriders can grab a last-minute break, departing on 5 April, to ride accompanied through the Mediterranean hills and valleys of the Corbieres, journeying from one farm-house to the next. You will need horseriding experience: the trip is not for beginners. The price is per person in a party of two and includes flights and full board. Call Inntravel on 01653 628862.
you can take a classy 11-night tour of the islands of southern Italy in July. This would include stays on no fewer than four different islands: Sicily, the two relatively remote Aeolian islands of Lipari and Stromboli, as well as the fabulous Isle of Capri. The price includes B&B accommodation plus flights, and you should allow another pounds 150 per person to cover the cost of all internal sea-crossings and taxis. Call Italian Expressions on 0171-435 2525.
you can take an "alternative" adventure holiday with Encounter through northern Pakistan into China. The highlight of the trip is likely to be your arrival at the fabled city of Kashgar. Various departure dates after June are available. The price includes all accommodation, food guides and entrance fees, but you will need to buy your own round ticket to Islamabad, Pakistan. Call Encounter on 0171-370 6845.
