Double Your Fun With A Double Dip Holiday

11 August 2014

Everybody loves a 2-for-1, and we here at Flight Centre are no different. That’s why we’re bringing you our almost-too-good-to-be-true Double Dip Holiday deal: two destinations in the one holiday without doubling the cost! With our Double Dip Holidays, accommodation is included in the price of the trip - that’s double the value with half the effort! It’s not greedy; it just makes sense to Double Dip, doesn’t it?

Downunder in Oz we’re famously isolated from much of the rest of the world, so why not take advantage of the air miles and the mandatory stopovers by turning an otherwise arduous leg of your journey into a full-blown holiday? You might even get to experience a destination you may have never had the opportunity to visit before. Here are some ways you can double your fun with a Double Dip Holiday.

.........................................................................................................................................................

London + Paris

.........................................................................................................................................................

Example:  Sydney to London + Paris – from $2,149* return (including 8 nights’ accommodation)

 Feel the magic of the Champs-Élysées

Do you love big cities? The thrill of wandering through bustling streets, exploring new neighbourhoods, posing in front of giant monuments, and discovering the new and unknown? Well, why stop at seeing just London when Paris is just a short flight away?

Live out a real-life Monopoly fantasy knocking Pall Mall, The Strand, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly off the board. Visit the Queen at Buckingham Palace, down a pint in a 17th Century pub, stroll along the banks of the Thames, visit Big Ben, and shop up a storm on Oxford Street. You’ll stay four nights in the heart of London before being whisked away to the chic streets of Paris.

When in Paris, don your finest beret and get ready to eat and drink your body weight in French breads, cheeses and wines. You’ve got four nights to soak up the sights and sample the delights here in the City of Romance.

Your centrally located hotel means you’re on the doorstep to Paris’ world-class galleries – a trip to The Lourve to spy the famous Mona Lisa is a must and, if you’ve got time, the grand Musée d'Orsay is well worth a gander too.

.........................................................................................................................................................

Honolulu + New York

.........................................................................................................................................................

Example:  Sydney to Honolulu + New York – from $2,665* return (including 8 nights’ accommodation)

 Lap up the chilled out vibes on Waikiki

Experience the best of both worlds and both of the United States’ coasts by taking a trip to New York via Honolulu. Sun and sand meets concrete jungle on this unique Double Dip holiday combo.

Spending a minimum of four nights in each destination, first up you’re taxing it easy on island time sipping coconuts on the beach in Waikiki, storing up on chilled-out vibes in preparation for living large in New York - the city that never sleeps.

Spend your days in Hawaii enjoying fresh local food, relaxing on the beach or seek out adventure exploring the island’s various volcanic mountain hikes and world-class surf breaks.

On the east coast in New York, get ready to pound the pavement as you shop Fifth Avenue, attempt to circumnavigate Central Park, explore endless museums and galleries, take in a Broadway show, and stay up late enjoying cocktails Sex and The City-style in hip East Village bars.

.........................................................................................................................................................

Dubai + Amsterdam

.........................................................................................................................................................

Example:  Sydney to Dubai + Amsterdam – from $2,445* return (including 8 nights’ accommodation)

 Old meets new in Dubai

Looking for a getaway with a difference? Amsterdam via Dubai is the Double Dip for you! Imagine yourself taking in the exotic Souks, world-class shopping, golden sand beaches, mind-blowing buildings and stunning ports of Dubai, and then the next cycling along Amsterdam’s iconic canals en route to picnic on the lush grass of Vondelpark.

Worlds apart from the United Arab Emirates to Europe, these two destinations in succession make for a truly memorable holiday.

Visit the top of the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, and look out over Dubai’s incredible modern infrastructure. On ground level, shop ‘til you drop in Dubai Mall, then gear up for a thrill-seeking Jeep ride through the desert!

In Amsterdam, step back in time as you wander cobblestoned streets that date back to the 13th Century. Visit Anne Frank House and share in a piece of history. Enjoy sitting in candlelit bars enjoying a local brew and sampling Dutch delicacies.

Other Double Dip Holidays on offer include:
