Seduced by Sri Lanka
Outside peak season, there are plenty of deals for holidays on this idyllic island. Choose to travel to the south-west coast with The Holiday Place on 12 June and take advantage of a 14-night break at the Emerald Bay Hotel for £699 per person. Accommodation is all-inclusive and Qatar Airways flights from Heathrow via Doha are included. The capital, Colombo, is an hour's drive north. www.theholidayplace.co.uk
If you've been sleeping in a soggy festival field, a long journey home isn't always an appealing prospect. Happily, Holiday Inn Express hotels is offering 50 per cent off rooms every Sunday during the peak summer festival season (5 June-25 September). With doubles available from £26, weary revellers can yank off their wellies, have a shower and enjoy breakfast the next morning before heading home refreshed. www.hiexpress.com/recoveryrate
If a summer city break soaking up Prague's wealth of history and riverside restaurants sounds appealing, then Flight Centre has a tempting offer. Four nights' basic but central accommodation is being offered for £275 per person at the Ibis Wenceslas Square. Breakfast and flights from Heathrow are also included, for departures between 9 June and 28 July. Book by 15 June. www.flightcentre.co.uk
