As David Cameron heads off to Brussels in an attempt to find a way out of the Eurozone financial crisis, one British holiday firm has found a way to dramatically reduce prices to certain countries around the world, where prices are coming down as the value of sterling is heading upwards.

This is great news for families, where the savings can multiply, often saving hundreds of pounds on the annual holiday.

Comments Mark Wright, Managing Director of Families Worldwide and the man who created the concept of Family Adventure Holidays: “The news is wall-to-wall doom and gloom at the moment but there are areas around the world where the strength of sterling has enabled us to lower prices.

“These include Jordan, India and Namibia, whilst some of our more popular destinations have been extremely good value for money for a long time including Morocco and Egypt. With price reductions of up to £200 pp, that means a price drop of £800 for a family of four; welcome news indeed!”

Cheetahs & Dunes in Namibia – from £1349 pp (save £200 pp)
Namibia is one of the world's best wildlife destinations and combined with varied landscapes and hospitable people make it an enthralling holiday destination. Highlights include the Skeleton Coast, sand boarding Namibia’s famous dunes in the Namib Desert, dolphin-watching boat trips and quad biking. The holiday now costs from £1349 per child (age guide 5-16), £1549 per adult which includes all transportation, most meals and the services of a tour leader. Flights inclusive prices on request.

Crusaders & Camels in Jordan – 8 days from £1079 pp (save £70 pp)
Highlights of Families Worldwide’s 8-day Crusaders & Camels trip include Jerash, Amman, a camel trek, tour of Petra, a drive to the Dead Sea (the lowest point on earth) and a visit to a Crusader castle at Kerak. Best of all is a 4WD in the desert at Wadi Rum – in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia – to sleep under the stars in a Bedouin-style camp. The holiday now costs from £1079 per child (age guide 5-16), £1129 per adult which includes flights all transportation, 7 nights’ accommodation, some meals and the services of a group leader.
