With everyone watching their wallets a little more it makes sense to squeeze
as much out of your holiday as possible. So why not go for a twin-centre
holiday? Twice as much fun for virtually the same price. Here are a few
of our favourites…
Looking for: The ultimate American experience...
York and Las Vegas
Blend big city sophistication with over-the-top decadence for a trip that's big on fun and stunning sights. Take your pick from a selection of luxurious hotels and discover the delights on offer in the City That Never Sleeps and then prepare to play hard in the Entertainment Capital of the World!
Don't miss: The Stratosphere Tower in Vegas for its aptly named 'Insanity' ride. Century 21 on Cortlandt Street in New York, the biggest and best designer discount store in the world.
Looking for: Sun, sand and beautiful beaches
Re-set to 'Island time' and enjoy idyllic white sand beaches and turquoise seas. Go all-inclusive for financial peace of mind and enjoy beach front luxury at the Sea Breeze in Barbados then compare the rum punch at the Beach Club in Antigua!
Don't miss: The Malibu Beach Club near Bridgetown; a rum distillery built on a beautiful beach where $9 buys you a tour, drink and use of a deck chair! Nelson's Dockyard in Antigua, a fascinating naval museum and National Park.
Looking for: Family Fun
Designed with the family in mind these two Florida cities have everything you need for a perfect holiday. Enjoy Orlando's many theme parks and Miami's stunning beaches to create a break that'll keep everyone happy.
Don't miss: A day with the Miami Dolphins, the football team
that is! Join 75,000 fans who pack out the stadium on match day for a slice
of all-American football action. A swim with the dolphins, the real ones this
time! Have a once in a lifetime experience at SeaWorld®
Looking For: A Winter Sport Wonderland
The two cities are joint hosts of the 2010 winter Olympics, visit and you'll see why! Whistler offers some of the best all-season skiing in the world with over 8,000 powdery acres to enjoy, team that with a stay in Vancouver, a sophisticated city with great shopping, dining, culture and stunning mountains.
Don't miss: In Whistler, the chance to ski down the only glacier in North America. Vancouver's Grouse Mountain Skyride, a breathtaking climb to 1100m by aerial tram.
Looking For: The best of both worlds
Francisco and Oahu
San Francisco is the perfect west coast vacation spot, offering amazing shops, museums and tourist attractions. After pounding its characteristically steep streets you'll be ready to relax on Hawaii's island paradise of Oahu and explore its dense jungle and world-famous beaches.
Don't miss: Ride the Tornado at Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park, a crazy 130 foot tunnel that shoots down from 50 foot in the air! Indulge in a San Fran tradition with an 'Earthquake' cocktail at the Top of the Mark.
