Travel challenge: The best price for an island holiday?
Saturday 21 February 2009
Every week, we invite competing companies to give us their best deal for a particular journey. Today: an all- inclusive family holiday over the Easter holidays on an Atlantic or Caribbean island, departing from Gatwick on 4 April.
From our search, it is clear that demand is very strong and availability is limited. Prices given here are for the grand total, based on two adults and two children sharing.
Bermuda: £5,916, including flights from Gatwick, transfers and 14 nights in an ocean-view room at the three-star Grotto Bay resort. “There is the protective beach, children’s playground and great bus connections every 15 minutes to anywhere on the island,” says Jemma Purvis of Kuoni.

Bahamas: £8,499, including flights from Gatwick, transfers and 14 nights at the three-star Paradise Island Harbour Hotel. Thomson Worldwide’s Katie Parsons says: “From snorkelling, dolphin spotting, a kids’ club, not to mention the clear waters and a white sandy beach, the resort offers something for everyone.” (0871 664 0273; thomsonworldwide.com).
Barbados: £6,554, including flights from Gatwick, transfers and 10 nights in a junior suite pool garden room at Turtle Beach hotel. “It combines the typical Barbados beach holiday with extensive facilities, an excellent choice of restaurants and a lively atmosphere,” says Camilla Barrett of Caribtours.
