Etihad Airways recently released its 2017-2018 Winter Warmers holiday programme. The schedule shows a range of discounted holiday packages to locations ranging from Abu Dhabi to southern Thailand and the Maldives.
The deals are available from the UK and can be booked on the airlines UK website or by calling the UK holiday hotline. In its brochure, Etihad says holidaymakers who book packages quickly can save more than 30 per cent on the standard retail price.
A look at the brochure shows the current top deal is a five-night break at a five-star resort in Abu Dhabi. This comes fully inclusive of Etihad economy class air fares from the UK and carries a price tag of just 650 for each traveller. Accommodation is at the beachside Al Raha Hotel and the price is based on two people sharing one room.
Other Abu Dhabi holidays kick in with similar price tags or only a little higher. At the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr, the same 650 buys the same five nights but comes inclusive of half board. Four nights at the prestigious Abu Dhabi Four Seasons Hotel is 682.
Those who have never experienced the other-worldly delights of Thailand could do so at a price not that much higher than the cost of a round trip air ticket. Five nights at the Hilton Resort and Spa in Hua Hin is available for 699 per person. The magical Maldives and a break at the Holiday Island Resort is yours for 899.
