Ever wondered what it must be like to holiday like a movie icon, a TV adventurer or the rich and famous? Well there are plenty of ways to follow in the footsteps of personal idols without needing to splash out. Tour operator DialAFlight can organise extravagant city breaks James Bond-style, adventure tours to rival Bear Grylls’ expeditions and luxurious family holidays that will make ‘Posh n Becks’ envious, from just £899 per person:
Holiday Like Bond – From £899 Per Person
With a brand new 007 novel due to be published in 2013 – the 60th year since the spy books launched, there’s no better time to enjoy a Bond-inspired holiday. The backdrop of many memorable scenes in the James Bond archive, Venice is a beautiful city with plenty to explore; from The Grand Canal where 007’s gondola transformed into a hovercraft in Moonraker to the charming Venetian buildings much like the one that sunk in Casino Royale. For a real taste of ‘00heaven’, indulge in a city break at the ex-14th century palace, Hotel Danieli. The location of Dr Goodhead’s suite in Moonraker (costing €10,000 a night), this lavish hotel features gold leaves, chandeliers and antiques with impressive deluxe rooms available without the Bond price tag.
DialAFlight (www.dialaflight.com / 0844 556 6060) offers a three-night stay at the five-star Hotel Danieli from £899 per person (saving £65). Valid for selected dates in September, the price includes accommodation in a premium deluxe double room with breakfast and flights from London with BA.
Holiday Like Bear Grylls – From £1,269 Per Person
Head down under to New Zealand and face the types of challenges likely to appear in the new Bear Grylls: Ultimate Survivors TV show. Home of the adventure junkie, it’s no wonder New Zealand gets a lot of love from the nation’s Chief Scout Bear Grylls. To experience all this country has to offer, hire a home on wheels and stop off along the way to try optional activities such as jet boating in the glorious Bay of Islands, following Bear’s footprints along volcanic peaks on the Tongariro crossing, feeling the rush of free-fall with a skydive over lake Taupo or hiking through lands of bubbling geysers in Roturua. Make it as far as the South Island and strap on crampons for a glacier walk, kayak the turquoise lakes of the Okarito lagoon and even brave the bungee in Queenstown.
DialAFlight (www.dialaflight.com / 0844 556 6060) offers a seven-night motorhome adventure from £1,269 per person. Valid for departures between April - October, the price includes hire of a two-berth motorhome and flights from London to Auckland via Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific. Adventure activities excluded.
Holiday Like The Beckhams – Save £1,245 Per Family
The Beckhams are well known for splashing out on holidays to remember for their ever-expanding family, ensuring there’s something for everyone wherever they go. Luxury fun in the sun is the key ingredient to a Posh ‘n’ Becks vacation and that’s exactly what a stay at the five-star at the Banyan Tree Phuket guarantees. Make the most of all this family-friendly resort has to offer; from watersports lessons off the white-sandy beach and a private pool surrounded by spacious, tropical gardens to local elephant treks through the jungle.
DialAFlight (www.dialaflight.com / 0844 556 6060) offers seven nights for the price of five at the Banyan Tree Phuket from £1,599 per person (saving £1,245 per family) based on a family of four sharing. Valid for departures from 1 April - 15 July, the price includes accommodation in a two-bedroom pool villa with a free upgrade to half board, transfers and flights from London with Singapore Airlines.
