Florida fly-drive: Travel challenge

Where to go and what to do

Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific break. This week: a fly-drive holiday in Florida. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together. Each package includes flights in September, car hire and 14 nights' accommodation.

£899 - Virgin Holidays

Includes Virgin flights from Heathrow to Miami on 24 September and room-only at the Days Inn Thunderbird Resort in Miami. "With car hire included, travellers can explore the Everglades, Fort Lauderdale and the Keys," says Scott Edwards (0844 557 3859; virginholidays.co.uk).

£1,069 - BA Holidays

Includes BA flights from Gatwick to Tampa on 16 September and room-only at the Postcard Inn on the Beach. "Using St Petersburg as your base, this fly-drive package offers a great way to see all that Florida has to offer," says John Price (0844 493 0758; ba.com).
