Something To Declare: Cyprus; two wheels, three countries
Saturday 06 January 2007
Bargain of the week: Cyprus
The divided island in the eastern Mediterranean is to get its first flights from a low-cost airline from 26 March. Monarch (right) (08700 40 50 40; www.flymonarch.com) will fly four times a week in summer from Luton to Larnaca - Cyprus's main airport, located on the south coast. One-way fares start at £70, with an extra £20 for an extra-legroom seat.
"Cyprus Airways and British Airways have operated a high-fares cartel to Cyprus for decades which we'll break," says Tim Jeans, managing director of Monarch Scheduled. The airline will provide free inflight entertainment and newspapers during the four-and-a-half-hour flight.
Destination of the week: two wheels, three countries
"Tatras to Tokaj" is the name of a new bike tour organised by Explore (0870 333 4001; www.explore.co.uk) for the coming summer. The 10-day trip begins in Poland's finest city, Krakow, crosses the Tatra Mountains and slices through Slovakia to the Hungarian wine-producing city of Tokaj. The trip, rated as "moderate", costs around £875 - including bike hire, hotel with breakfast, and support staff.
