We’ve taken a look at where you, our members, went to last year and the locations and types of holidays you continue to take.
Most of our families chose to “KeyCamp”. We previously referred to camping as “…the great family holiday”. And it sure seems that you agree with us. Some of the great attractions of camping are that it caters for all generations – with crèches, younger kids club, teens and even ‘grandparents stay free’. It really is the whole package that ensures that all the family – even Mam and Dad – get to relax!
For those families who chose not to camp, the main destinations continue to be where the sun always shines, and where there are so many activities the kids will never get bored. Both Port Aventura in Salou and Portugal’s Algarve were our most favoured destinations.
When not chasing the sunshine, Disneyland Paris continues to draw children of all ages!
Portugal, along with Spain’s Costa Del Sol was a hit with our golfing fraternity, with the variety of courses around Villamoura being regarded as well above par.
Going westwards, the Big Apple scored highly with groups. The vibrant lights of Time Square, the bright smile of Broadway, iconic buildings like the Empire State Building and Rockafella Centre all make for a great city break.
So where does that leave our couples? Well it appears that a combination of being waited on hand and foot as you change destination on a daily basis was a winner – with both long haul and Mediterranean cruise being a top choice. A number of our members also availed of luxurious river cruising through Europe and Russia. Indulging in comfort, luxury and service, while experiencing the magnificence of castles and vineyards through along the mighty rivers of Europe is highly recommended.
For many couples the romance of Italy remains in the heart – good food, wine, ice cream and being a relatively short flight to what remains one of the world’s top destinations, all proved to be a winner with Garda Travel Club members.
For others, the luxurious sunshine of Dubai proved too much to resist. With guaranteed sun, plenty of top class hotels with private beaches and a range of activities that allow you to be as active or laid back as you chose.
So there you have it – your holiday hotspots. And most of you didn’t go with a standard charter package! Instead, you chose when, where and for how long you wanted to go and then let us revert to you with a choice of airlines, accommodation, transfers, duration and of course cost.
Garda Travel Club continues to work for our members to get you the best holidays at best available value. along with comprehensive travel insurance.
