If you like the idea of package holidays (I think it’s the best holiday with kids), but are a bit hesitant to travel far with your family in one shot, or want a trip that’s longer than the usual packaged week, then you might be interested to know that Club Med has a new stopover package.
The stopover package (available from November) includes a minimum of two nights and can be taken as part of the Club Med holiday package either before or after travel to the Club Med resort. The stopover package will offer 3, 4, and 5-star accommodation options, flights, airport transfers and breakfast.
So basically you can stay in a city close to the resort before or after your package holiday, either to break up the travel, or shop, sightsee and have a longer time away.
And if you’re thinking “in my dreams”, a lot of these packages are more affordable than others, and if you consider the cost of going to Cape Town for a week (see a broad cost comparison I did here). Also, if you book way in advance, you can save a few thousand rand on the trip too.
