May 23, 2012, 10:48 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Voyager Travel Direct has revealed reduced prices on luxury holidays to Madeira departing in July and August 2012. The online travel agency is offering school holiday departure dates with added extras and special offers for families.
Five star deals in July and August are rarely discounted, yet Voyager Travel Direct offers families an affordable holiday to Pestana Grand in Funchal with an abundance of free extras, such as an upgrade to half board, a room upgrade and a live show at the nearby casino.
The Pestana Grand occupies an ocean-front location and is set within 5,000 acres of gardens. The hotel's very large, 1,000 square metre swimming pool is an ideal place to relax with a drink from the poolside bar. The hotel also features a gymnasium, sauna, Jacuzzi, treatment rooms and a free daily shuttle bus to the city of Funchal.
It can be difficult for parents to find good value family holidays during school breaks, when prices always rocket due to increased demand. With this in mind, Voyager Travel Direct has decided to offer discounts for children, discounts on family rooms and will guarantee interconnecting rooms for families where required on selected holidays to Madeira.
Madeira Island offers plenty for families to do in terms of culture and exploring. Families can take a catamaran trip and look for dolphins, take a jeep expedition and explore areas such as Câmara de Lobos, Boca da Corrida, Jardim da Serra and Quinta da Grande, or take a tour to the Gardens of Madeira. There is also Madeira adventure Kingdom which offers a range of excursions, including Canyoning and an aqua park at Santa Cruz which boasts five toboggan rides, four fast slides and a lazy river.
Verity Eyre, the general manager of Voyager Travel Direct, said: "Madeira is a great island which may have been overlooked by families in the past. However, the temperature in summer averages around 24 degrees and there is good quality accommodation available for a reasonable price this summer compared to other destinations.
"This, combined with discounts for children, has led to a surge in Madeira bookings and we would recommend that families consider Madeira for their holiday this summer, as the same deals may not be around next year."
