London, UK (PRWEB) March 6, 2009
With Easter, Whitsun and the long summer break approaching, parents considering a good value holiday should consider long haul destinations, according to Hayes & Jarvis (0871 664 0246). The worldwide specialist has a range of credit-crunching family holidays to far-flung destinations - such as Kenya and Thailand, offering great value during the school holidays. This is supported by the Post Office® Worldwide Holiday Costs Barometer survey, which shows the cost of eight tourist items in Thailand and Kenya to be cheaper than eurozone countries and holiday favourites such as Egypt and the US. The packages are based on a family of four (two adults and two children aged 2-11 years) travelling during school holidays and start from £2,196:
