Travel challenge: Crete
Saturday 14 June 2014
Each week, we invite three companies to offer us their best deal for a specific date. This week: a week on the Greek Island of Crete. Prices are per person, based on two people sharing. Each package includes seven nights' accommodation, transfers and Germania flights from Gatwick to Chania on 1 July.
£349 - Islands of Greece
Includes self-catering at the Camari Gardens near Rethymnon. "Just 6km west of Rethymnon – with its Renaissance architecture, Venetian fortress and beaches – this is ideal for couples," says Zoe Cornwall (01444 225641; islands-of-greece.co.uk).
£469 - Sunvil Holidays
