Good to go: London, Mexico, Portugal
Wednesday 20 April 2011
By Royal appointment
Still waiting for your Royal Wedding invitation? There's still time to be part of the action. Book a four-night stay at a Park Plaza Hotel in London from 25–28 April and you'll get a fifth night free on the ceremony day. The nightly rate is £156 per double, room only, and is valid at Park Plaza County Hall hotel (above); the Plaza on the River on the Albert Embankment; and the Westminster Bridge hotel. All are near to the parade route and Trafalgar Square, where the nuptials can be seen on a big screen. Quote "Royal" when booking.
If your holiday budget extends to £900, then you'll still have (£1) change from an all-inclusive break to Antigua or Mexico with Hayes & Jarvis. The tour operator's Easter sale has just launched and includes a seven-night stay at the Jolly Beach Resort in Antigua. The price includes return flights with British Airways departing from Gatwick in June. The same rate applies for a week's stay at Mexico's five-star El Dorado Royale hotel (above) on the Mayan Riviera during September, with BA flights from Gatwick and transfers included. Book by 3 May.
Portugal without the crowds
Sunvil Discovery is offering a deal to explore the Portuguese region of Alentejo for £420 per person. The price includes a week's B&B at the Casa da Eira hotel in Vila Nova de Milfontes. The tour operator's new charter flights from Heathrow to Beja are also included, departing on the first three Sundays of June (5, 12, 19). The region is known for its rugged countryside, wine and cuisine, making it a great choice for foodies and ramblers alike.
