Western & Oriental announces the launch of ‘Light by Western & Oriental’

Luxury travel specialist Western & Oriental has announced the latest addition to its extensive portfolio with the launch of ‘Light by Western & Oriental’, a collection of superior 4* and good value 5* hotels around the world that offer luxury holidays without the correspondingly high price tags.

The new collection is ideal for those who are conscious of tightening purse strings, but who do not want to compromise on quality or luxury.  Prices start from as little as £299 per person for a seven night stay at the Aphrodite Hills resort in Cyprus*.

Reflecting the change in spending habits of consumers, the new programme features an extensive range of holidays to luxury hotels in popular holiday destinations including short haul favourites such as Cyprus, Spain, Greece, Tenerife and Egypt alongside luxurious hotels and resorts further afield – Thailand, Cuba, Mexico, the Maldives, Mauritius and the Caribbean. Clients will also receive the same trademark high quality customer service, expert advice from travel specialists and opportunities to create tailor-made experiences.  Full details are available at .

Accompanying the dedicated section on the Western & Oriental website is a host of budgeting tips for cost conscious holidaymakers, covering everything from holiday packing essentials and insurance to making the most of the hotel breakfast buffet.

“The launch of ‘Light’ has come about in response to feedback from agents about the need for provision of ‘luxury for less’ options across our key markets - honeymoons, beaches and retreats and family holidays. We realise that in the current climate clients are anxious to shave money off the cost of their holiday, but prefer to do so without compromising on quality or elements of luxury.” commented Steve O’Loughlin, Head of Trade Sales for Western & Oriental.
