Travel Challenge: A Mediterranean sailing holiday
Friday 18 May 2012
Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific holiday.
Today: a summer sailing holiday in the Mediterranean. Prices are per person, based on two people travelling together. Each package includes a week's accommodation on board the respective boats as well as flights from the UK in June.
