The big trip

When planning your vacation, have you ever checked where your pound goes a little further? Here we give you our top picks for the best exchange rates and ideas for that next big trip…

Southern Africa

In South Africa the rand is offering one of the most favourable exchange rates at the moment with the pound doubling in value over the last few years. Similarly in neighboring Namibia, your money goes a long way. With your savings why not combine the two countries for a memorable honeymoon? Start in Namibia with a visit to the wild Damaraland region followed by four nights in cosmopolitan Cape Town and a trip to Table Mountain.


Canada offers a great value in comparison to the US, with exchange rates to the pound seeing record highs in recent times. This gives travelers the perfect excuse to indulge. Head to Nimmo Bay and opt for the ultimate heli- venture, taking in the vast 30,000 square miles of the beautiful wilderness of the Great Bear Rainforest.

Now is certainly the time to visit vibrant Brazil not only as we eagerly await the Rio Olympics, but for the fall in prices. With the pound looking strong against the Real, balance the buzz of city life in Rio with a romantic getaway. Heading south to Brazil’s iconic Emerald coast, guests can soak up the sun at Ponta dos Ganchos, voted best South American Resort in 2015 by Condé Nast Traveler’s readers.

If you are looking to cross India off your bucket list, the forecast for this ever-emerging market means it looks set for success in 2016. Currently the pound stands at around 97 Indian Rupees, great news for travelers. Why not use the money you save on a visit to the Taj Mahal? Or alternatively, escape the masses on a hot air balloon ride over Amber Fort. Experience the wonders of this diverse country on our Highlights of Rajasthan itinerary.
