Good to go...flights, Mexico, Baltic break
Wednesday 23 February 2011
Flights of fancy
Etihad, the airline of the UAE's capital, Abu Dhabi, is offering air fares from Heathrow to a range of alluring destinations for under £500 this spring: Kuala Lumpur (pictured above) for £499, Jakarta for £479, Bangkok for £485 and Delhi for £429. Fares from Manchester to Beijing start at £469; all flights are via Abu Dhabi, but if you choose to end your journey here, the fare is £389. The offer is valid for travel until 30 June for bookings made by next Monday.
Bales Worldwide's sale comes to an end next Monday, with discounts of up to 15 per cent off a range of its group and tailor-made trips still available. The "Treasures of Mexico" small group itinerary has been reduced to £1,791 per person and includes flights, transfers, 13 nights' accommodation with breakfast, sightseeing with an English-speaking guide and excursions to cultural hotspots including Mexico City, Oaxaca, San Cristóbal de las Casas, Palenque, Campeche, Mérida and Chichen Itza. There are seven departures this year.
Break for the Baltic
As Scandinavia and the Baltic nations emerge from a long, dark winter, what better time to take in the water-laced region? Hurtigruten is offering savings on its "Pearls of the Baltic Sea" voyage. Departing Oslo on 25 April, the trip calls at Copenhagen (pictured above), Helsinki, St Petersburg, Tallinn and Gudhjem (Denmark) before returning to Oslo. The price of £1,261 includes 10 nights' full board onboard the ship and transfers. Flights are not included.
