Travel Challenge: A half-term family holiday in the sun
Saturday 16 January 2010
Every week we invite competing companies to give us their best deal for a specified holiday. Today: a holiday in the sun for February half- term. Prices are for a family of four (with two children under 12) and require no time out of school.
£2,826: Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt
Includes flights departing Gatwick on 14 February, transfers and seven nights' all-inclusive accommodation in a family room at the four-star Rehana Sharm Resort. "The Red Sea delivers guaranteed sun – a huge relief after all this snow. Families want to work to a fixed budget and we've seen demand for this sort of holiday increase by up to 30 per cent," says Olympic Holidays' Photis Lambrianides.
