Parents Half Price on PGL Family Adventures

PGL Family Adventures has a new offer on six- and seven-night activity holidays in the UK and France this May half term and in the Summer holidays: one parent is now half price per each full-paying child, if booked by 3 May.

In Britain, the deal is on a range of dates at PGL’s adventure centres in Devon, Lincolnshire, Wiltshire, Suffolk, Perthshire and on the Isle of Wight.

For example, on a week-long multi-activity holiday at Barton Hall in Devon starting Saturday 25 May, each parent would have paid £469 if sharing a family room, or £499 if occupying a separate room from the children.

Now, for each full-paying child aged five to 18 years (at a cost of £379 or £409 depending on the room), one parent is half price, paying £234.50 or £249.50 respectively.

This means a family of four could save up to £499 at Barton Hall this half term for a truly inclusive holiday – accommodation, food, activities, tuition, equipment and evening fun! The same principle applies to selected July and August dates, so a family of four could save up to £539 for the same package.

The offer is also valid on selected summer holidays in France, at PGL’s château-style centre near Disneyland Paris (for seven-night stays), and on canoeing holidays in the Ardèche gorge (a six-night holiday).

For example, the Disneyland Adventure holiday, which includes two full days in the theme park and two days of multi-activities at the Château de Grande Romaine, would have cost £609 per parent when sharing a family room, or £699 each if occupying a separate room from the children, but now is just £304.50 or £349.50 respectively. Children aged five to 18 years inclusive pay either £549 or £625 depending on whether they share with parents.

In this case, a family of four could save up to £699 for a holiday that includes everything except travel to France.

Best-ever offer on PGL Summer Camps for Kids

PGL has an amazing new offer on residential summer camps. It’s called 1, 2 FREE and represents the best-ever deal from Britain’s most trusted children’s holiday organisation.

With the deal, one child pays full price, a second child is half price, and a third child is free!

“This is our best and most flexible offer ever!”, says the company’s Steve Hougham. “You just need to book three children and do so by 22 March.

“The children don’t have to be related to each other. They don’t have to be on the same holiday. They don’t even have to holiday on the same date.”

The offer applies to residential camps of seven nights or longer, to holidays at adventure centres in the UK and in France, and to both multi-activity and specially-themed holidays.

In each case, the most expensive of the holidays is charged at full price, the next most expensive is half price and the cheapest holiday is free.

For example, one child could opt for a Horse Riding Pro week at Tregoyd House, paying full brochure price of £819. The second child might choose Learner Driver at Boreatton Park, paying 50% of the brochure price of £745, which is £372.50. The third child could book a ‘First Timer’ Multi-activity week at Marchants Hill, which normally costs £625 but with this offer is free.

The total saving across the three children is a massive £997 (and 50 pence)!

To take advantage of the 1, 2 FREE offer, PGL’s special activity holiday insurance must be taken: £37 for seven nights in UK, £44 for holidays in France. Quote HOLS000TZ19 when booking.

UK holidays are offered for seven- to ten-year olds, 10-13s and 13-16 years. Holidays in the south of France are for teenagers 13-17; nine to 13-year olds welcome at Château de Grande Romaine near Disneyland® Paris. French holidays include escorted coach travel.
