This week, three deals stand out for me: a bargain package to Paris, an unusual cruise from the Med to Dubai and an Indian Ocean escape – when we saw the images of this Maldives resort on a private island next to this price the entire London team reacted with an, "Oh, wow!" And we’re not easily impressed.
£229 -- Paris Stay inc Eurostar, Cabaret & Louvre Tickets
Zoom out of St Pancras on Eurostar, check into a 4-star hotel in the Latin Quarter and enjoy the free extras: a Seine River cruise, entrance to the Louvre and tickets to a cabaret show including a glass of champagne. Choose from 1-, 2- or 3-night packages. Oh, and they throw in a free metro card covering the duration of your stay and daily breakfast. .
£999 -- 18-Night Med, Suez Canal & Dubai Cruise w/Free Stay
This cruise and stay trip – including flights – packs a punch for less than a grand: The ship departs Barcelona and stops off in Alexandria before sailing through the historic Suez Canal. Then the cruise visits Sharm el Sheik before landing in Dubai, where you choose between a 3-night stay in the city centre or at a nearby beach resort.
£1399 -- Save £350 on an All-Inc Maldives Week w/Upgrade
Here’s a deal where you can practise the art of doing nothing from the infinity pool, loll on a sun lounger staring at the sea and cool off in your outdoor rain shower. This package saves you £350 and features a free upgrade to a Beach Villa, all meals and drinks, and transfers – on a speedboat, of course.
