No more lockdown, you HAVE to let your hair down!

After being under strict Covid restrictions and lockdown for so long, we feel that the month of MAY totally lives up to its name with regard to TRAVELLING and other stuff we can do! It is now the perfect time to not only think about it but to book to see the things and places you’ve always wanted to do. It is safer NOW to travel after all. Book straightaway and have yourself and your family an unforgettable experience in one or more awesome places around the country.

There are plenty of ways to cure your cabin fever. Get out on them streets, have tons of road trips, and breathe in that sweet fresh air!

Not having the freedom to explore for so long should have made you want to do it even more. You can instantly plan adventures, take a cruise, and go on hiking trails you always said you’d go on but never got around to. Now is your chance!  

Getting out of your comfort zone is so amazing after spending all that time indoors. Honestly, to a certain extent, it was great, but we are no longer bound, and traveling means trying new things, seeing the beauty of life, and exploring this incredible planet we live on!

Check off your bucket list. Do not let your doubts about today prevent you from having the adventures of tomorrow! Take chances and enjoy the journey to see the world on the budget you have right now.

Reunite with friends and family safely. Covid reminded us that we need to take the time to appreciate those we love the most. Now is the best time to reconnect. Getaway vacays at some of our self-catering resorts will allow you to revive relationships with your favourite people.
