Saturday 12 December 2009
Every week we invite competing companies to give us their best deal for a specified holiday. Today: a February half-term holiday in Florida. Prices are for a family of two adults and two children under 12 travelling together and include flights to Orlando and seven nights' accommodation and a week's car hire.
£1,896: Tropical Palms Resort, Kissimmee
Includes flights departing Heathrow on 13 February via Washington DC or Chicago, car hire with insurance, theme-park transfers, two "Kids Eat Free" passes covering 250 restaurants and room-only accommodation. "As well as guaranteed sunshine in Florida, there is guaranteed great value for families in the school holidays – we don't charge supplements for peak-time travel. We also encourage holidaymakers to take advantage of the car hire to explore some of the lesser known, and lower price, options," says Harry Hastings of Ocean Florida.
