Click, pack and go: our pick of the week’s travel deals

Will they stay or will they go? The England team will undoubtedly be hoping to extend their sojourn in South Africa today. Granted, their motive will be to secure a place in the next round, rather than to enjoy a prolonged holiday - as Capello has been at pains to tell us. Nevertheless, if the England team does progress, our footballers will be getting the chance to see more of the nation’s alluring provinces, from Cape Town to Johannesburg via Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein.You don't need a sporting motive to want to spend more time away from home, however.

Luxury tour operator Carrier ( www.carrier.co.uk) is offering a free two-night extension on a six-night holiday in Cape Town. The price of £5,790 per family of four includes Virgin Atlantic flights from Heathrow (valid 1 September-19 December), transfers, eight nights’ B&B in a two-bedroom suite at the Cape Grace on the V&A Waterfront, plus in-room dining and babysitting vouchers.

Across the Atlantic, BA Holidays ( www.ba.com/caribbean) is offering a free night on a week’s holiday in Barbados. The price of £1,225 per person includes seven nights’ B&B accommodation for the price of six at the four and-a-half-star Treasure Beach resort, plus BA flights from Gatwick and transfers. Valid for travel in July.

Similarly, Travelmood ( www.travelmood.com) is offering two bonus nights on a two-centre holiday in Dubai and Thailand. The deal is £949 per person for three nights’ B&B at the Arabian Courtyard in Dubai, four nights’ room only at the Bangkok Marriott Resort & Spa and eight nights’ room only at the Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa, plus return flights from Heathrow to Dubai and Bangkok departing 2 September and transfers.

Scott Dunn ( www.scottdunn.com) is offering seven nights for the price of five at the luxurious Six Senses Hideaway at Zighy Bay on Oman’s Musandam Peninsula. The price is £2,170 per person for seven nights’ B&B in a pool villa and includes flights from London, transfers and all in-resort experiences, such as a spa treatment or dhow cruise; valid until 15 September.

Closer to home, Kirker Holidays ( www.kirkerholidays.com) has a deal for a (longer) short break in Milan. For £673 per person you get four nights for the price of three at the four-star Hotel de la Ville, breakfasts, transfers and flights from London City, plus guide notes to restaurants and sightseeing. Valid all year for Thursday and Friday arrivals.

Finally, perhaps the ultimate incentive for England to stay is Keycamp’s ( www.keycamp.co.uk) offers in Spain, which are only valid while the team is still competing in the tournament. The price of £549 per family of four includes seven nights’ accommodation only in a mobile home in either Vilanova on the Costa Dorada, or Platja on the Costa Brava; valid for travel until 23 July. You might only have hours to book!
