Your Holiday, Your Choice: Guests only pay for the ‘extras’ they want at 18 resorts in Spain & the Canary Islands
Customise your Saga holiday with a choice of three different price packages
It’s pointless to pay for full board if a passenger wants to be out and about exploring every day.
Likewise, if a guest does not want make use of a free bar an all-inclusive package might not make sense.
A chauffeur-driven car to the airport may not be needed if a guest lives nearby.
Saga Holidays has taken into consideration its discerning guests’ requirements and now offers a choice of three price packages at a collection of resorts across Spain, the Balearics, the Canary Islands ad some individual hotels in Portugal, Croatia, Malta, Greece and Cyprus.
Guests now have the flexibility to decide what they want from their holiday and what they want to pay for:
The Essential package offers breakfast and dinner, a welcome drink, fruit and water in the room on arrival, porterage, return flights, return shared transfers from airport to hotel and a Saga representative.
In addition to the Essential package, from £70 extra per week, the Signature deal gives guests the option to go all-inclusive which includes all meals, a free bar up to 13 hours a day, travel insurance and some excursions on selected hotels.
From £200 more than the Signature price, guests receive everything in the Signature package plus UK travel service to and from the airport, an airport lounge pass, selected local flights and taxi transfer from the arrival airport to the resort.
As an example, Saga’s new holiday to the Olé Olivina Signature Hotel, in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote, starts from £429 for seven nights with the Essential package; from £499 with the Signature package and from £699 for Signature+.
The 290-bedroom hotel enjoys a peaceful location in attractive gardens and is 250 metres from the golden sands of Playa de los Pocillos. There is a buffet restaurant, bar, entertainment area and a freshwater pool which is heated in winter. All Saga rooms have a balcony or terrace.
Entertainment includes live music and shows every night, a guided walk of the capital Arrecife and a talk on the island's history. The hotel staff may also arrange aqua-aerobics and water-volleyball sessions
There will be excursions to Teguise, the former capital, and Haría, where Cesar Manrique (Lanzarote's famous artist and environmentalist) chose to retire to a few years before his death. There will also be a tour to La Corona volcano, the Jameos del Agua caves and the Jardin de Cactus, the last work of Cesar Manrique, which houses a cactus plantation in a disused quarry.
Keen walkers can experience the lunar-like terrain of the island at Timanfaya National Park. In a group of up to 16 guests an expert guide will host a six-kilometre walk to the top of the volcano.
