Panorama Holidays claims that staying two weeks instead of one could save money. “Clearly, people are looking to cut back on everything in these times, and that includes travel,” said Sharon Harney of Panorama Holidays. “However, there is no need to skimp on the summer hols with these offers. We’ve pared back the price of the second week to the extent that you probably save money by staying in the sun!
“For cost-conscious holidaymakers, it’s tempting to cut back to a week’s holiday rather than a fortnight. At the same time, it’s only into the second week that they really settle into holiday mode. Panorama’s special offers for August on two-week breaks work out at little more than that of a single week. Add in the low cost of living in many destinations and there’s a net saving by staying away for that second week.
“14 nights in Tenerife, for example, starts at just €2,025 for a family of four in the 3-star Tamaimo Tropical in PuertoSantiago. A couple staying in a studio at the same property is just €1,069. Turkey is well renowned for its value, and a fortnight for two adults and two children in the Altinbas Apartments is available for €2,124. Both offers are on a self-catering basis, with departures from Dublin on 6th August.
“In the Algarve, the price is just €585 per person based on two sharing for 14 nights at the 3-star Residence Vila Bela in Albuferia, which includes breakfast. Departure is from Dublin on 11th August.”
