£289 -- All-Inc 5-Star Turkey Holiday w/Upgrade, Save £169
The early bird gets the worm, they say. The worm, in this case, must be some kind of great big, juicy steak-sized specimen served with a portion of thrice-cooked chips, béarnaise sauce and a glass of red on the side. For anyone planning a holiday in spring, 2013, this Turkey deal is hard to beat -- £289 for a package including flights from London Gatwick or London Stansted on 10-29 April, accommodation at the 5-star Blue Bay Classic Hotel in Marmaris with a free upgrade to a sea-view room and a complimentary city tour. Bon appétit, feathered friends.
£99 -- Costa Brava: 3-Night Autumn Break w/Flights
Thanks to a well-earned reputation as one of the Costa Brava’s party capitals, it’s easy to forget that Lloret de Mar was once little more than a sleepy Spanish fishing port. At one end of the beach, however, there’s a little reminder; a bronze sculpture, the Monument to the Fishermen’s Wife, sits above a rocky outcrop, gazing out to sea in anticipation of her husband’s safe return. Legend has it that whoever touches her foot while looking out at the horizon will have all their dreams come true. You might think that sounds as likely as the average fisherman’s tale, but then you might think the same of this deal that includes flights from a range of UK airports, accommodation in a studio apartment (for up to four adults), a bottle of wine and a basket of fruit on arrival -- all for £99. Believe, people. Believe.
£99 -- Cornwall: 2-Nt Castle Break for 2, over 50% Off
It’s not exactly rare to find a Cornwall escape on Travelzoo -- it is, however, pretty unusual to come across one with such resoundingly, thunderously, top-drawer credentials as this one. If that sounds like overkill, consider the facts: for the equivalent of £45 each, you get two nights in a seaside castle in St Ives with daily breakfast, free accommodation for children and a 20% discount on spa treatments, dinner and golf. But that only tells half the story -- the view from the Tregenna Castle (of what Time Out rates as one of the UK’s 10 best beaches) is so good that it recently topped the Best View category at LateRooms.com's Best Kept Secret Awards.
