Eat, drink and be merry in Slovenia

20th October 2009 Print

It’s not all gloom and doom on the money front when travelling to eurozone destinations is the message from Slovenia specialist, Holiday Options. Despite the country’s currency being the euro, local costs are considerably cheaper than in the UK and eating out doesn’t cost ‘an arm and a leg’.

On the beverage front, for example, a large draft beer costs the equivalent of £1.60, a glass of wine approximately £1.40 and tea and coffee cost around £1 per cup.

Food wise, a large pizza is priced around £5.50, a two course snack lunch at £7.00 and a three-course dinner averages £13. Children can enjoy an ice cream for just 80p.

For those who fancy checking out this ‘value for money’ destination – home to lakes, mountains and a wealth of outdoor pursuits – Holiday Options is highlighting special family deals at Spring Bank Holiday 2010.

For Gatwick departures on 31 May, up to two children (2-11 years and accompanied by two adults) stay free-of-charge at the superb four-star Hotel Savica at Lake Bled and pay just £275 for their flight.

This means a family of four will pay a total of £1880 for a seven-night holiday – equating to £470 each – inclusive of return flights, transfers and half-board in a family room.

This special deal also applies to Manchester departures on 29 May, flight supplements may apply.
