HJ, we think the question ought to be why shouldn’t you? Picture perfect sunsets, Pina Coladas on tap, crystal clear ocean floors, starfish and dolphins fluttering by, while you soak up the sun in your very own villa. It’s a no-brainer and fortunately Club Med is offering an all inclusive trip for South Africans.
Here are the Club Med details:
Club Med Kani Maldives Special: (one of the only places we can visit outside of South Africa)
The Maldives is quarantine free and they are about to launch a program that offers all visitors a COVID-19 vaccination on arrival.
Packages starting from R25 972pp* excluding flights and departures till August 2021. The best part is that kids under 6 stay free!!
Oh and if you’re concerned about affording this luxury, here are a few top tips:
Living under lockdown for a year without our comforts being easily accessible has shown us we can still live a rich meaningful life with less. Less is more so use this opportunity to continue to streamline your expenses and put savings away for this holiday.
2. Travel Smart
Travel when there are no crowds! Consider taking your holiday during off-peak seasons. Side note: When it is accessible to South Africans, Club Med Mauritius, all kids under 12 stay free and kids under 6 stay free at their other sun resorts!
3. Rope in your Stokvel
4. Book in Advance
A number of travel companies and airlines offer great deals when you book holidays and flights in advance. Companies like Club Med reward early bookings with flexible payment options where you pay a low deposit of 10% on accommodation, with the balance payable over the remaining period before you travel.
We recommend you fly with Qatar, KLM or Air France from Johannesburg to the Maldives.
