Travel challenge: A family holiday in the Austrian Tirol
Saturday 31 July 2010
Every week we invite competing companies to give us their best deal for a specific holiday. Today: a week in the Austrian Tirol. Prices are for a family of four travelling in the second half of August and include flights departing from Gatwick.
£1,706: Hotel Strasshofer, Kitzbühel
Includes flights departing 21 August, transfers and a week's half board at the three-star Hotel Strasshofer. "Kitzbühel really does have everything: a lovely old town centre, stunning mountain scenery, activities for all the family from gentle rafting to hot air ballooning, stylish shops and a bathing lake for those hot summer days," says Gemma Brown at Crystal (0871 230 8180; crystallakes.co.uk ).
£2,228: Bon Alpina Hotel, Igls
Includes flights departing 18 August, transfers, a week's half board at the four-star Bon Alpina Hotel, daily lunch packs and afternoon tea. "The alpine village of Igls, just 5km from Innsbruck, has a whole range of mountain activities to keep the family entertained including hiking, mountain biking, horse riding and swimming in the local lakes," says Lisa Tyrrell at Inghams (020-8780 4454; inghams.co.uk ).
£2,792: Alpenpark Resort & Spa, Seefeld
Includes flights departing 18 August, transfers and a week's half board at the four-star Alpenpark Resort & Spa. "Neilson Lakes & Mountains provides both excellent value and impressive standards of tailor-made holidays. The Alpenpark Resort and Spa is an outstanding hotel for families thanks to its range of leisure facilities, inclusive children's clubs and a nice short transfer from Innsbruck. For that added touch of luxury there's a free wellness area. Another bonus is the private taxi transfer, meaning families have complete independence of travel and won't need to wait around at the airport. This is a big saving on a half- board holiday," says Pete Tyler of Neilson (0845 070 3466; neilson.co.uk/lakes ).
