Great getaways: Twin-centre Australia, Cape Town, Greece and Austrian ascent
Sunday 26 August 2012
It's bank holiday – and if you're not out buying a sofa, there are some deals to be had on holidays. One example is Austravel's sale, which lasts until Friday. The price of £1,395pp gets you a twin-centre break with three nights in Sydney at the Cambridge Hotel (room only) and four at the Reef View Hotel on Hamilton Island (half-board). The deal includes Cathay Pacific flights from Heathrow via Hong Kong on 5, 7 and 8 November (austravel.com).
Fleewinter has a break in the trendy Camps Bay suburb of Cape Town. A week's stay at the Casa apartment (ref CCB171) is £1,150pp, based on two people sharing, for stays in September and October. The deal includes South African Airways flights from Heathrow to Cape Town via Johannesburg, with car hire and a whale-spotting excursion (fleewinter.co.uk).
Greece is the word
Grab some late summer sun in Greece. Destinology has a week's half-board at the five-star Daios Cove near Aghios Nikolaos in Crete for £645pp, with flights from Luton to Heraklion travelling between 30 September and 13 October. Book by 31 August (destinology.co.uk).
The Austrian mountain village of Lech is a good base for a late-summer walking holiday. Inghams is offering a week's stay at the Chalet Hotel Alexandra for £449pp, with Thomson Airways flights from Gatwick to Innsbruck on 8 Sept. With that, you get breakfast, packed lunches to take out on hikes, afternoon tea when you return, and a five-course meal with wine each night (inghams.co.uk).
