As the dust settles in Rio and Germany heads home with their heads held high, there’s no better time to pick up a luxury holiday bargain for travel this summer.

Traditionally this post-World Cup period is seen as a great time to head off on your hols; with plenty of last minute deals, the kids off school for the summer and, of course, the famed tournament over for another four years.

There’s still great value to be had for ‘low season’ travel to the Caribbean if a long-haul destination takes your fancy, with up to 50% off in places such as Fairmont Royal Pavilion in Barbados – yet still lovely weather to take advantage of.

However, if a last minute escape to a location closer to home suits, then I’d suggest one of these five sensational savings:

Family bargain at Anassa, Cyprus

This relaxing destination will afford superb weather and plenty to keep younger ones happy with watersports, a kid’s club and a crèche. Our deal will see you saving a huge £1,730 per family (valid for travel until the end of the month) with a complimentary second room for up to three children under 12.

Second room for kids at Kempinski Hotel Soma Bay, Egypt

Children of all ages will be well taken care of here, where amenities for smaller ones such as bottle warmers and baby bathtubs feature alongside special menus and outdoor play areas for older ones. The Kimo Kids Club will have plenty to keep them happy too, offering cooking and dance lessons, shell collecting and pool games. You’ll save up to £469 per family for our offer for travel completed before they go back to school on 7th September 2014.

Culture and cut-price travel at Hotel Savoy Florence

Florence is one of Italy’s most acclaimed cities, a place where history, architecture, gastronomy and romance combine to create an exceptional destination for luxury travellers. Our saving of up to £180 per person could see you enjoy the delights of the Hotel Savoy during your stay here, set by the iconic Duomo making it perfectly placed for exploring the major attractions on foot.

Reduced rates this summer to Belmond Reid’s Palace, Madeira

A favourite haunt of the rich and famous for more than 100 years, Belmond’s Reid’s Palace is a short-haul luxury escape perfect for some summer sunshine. With our deal here you’ll save up to a massive £269 per person where you can enjoy this elegant resort with its views over the bay. Madeira is a wonderful island for couples and families alike, with this particular resort also being very well suited to solo travellers.

Summer savings in Spain at the Jumeirah Port Soller, Mallorca

Whether you’re a couple or a family, the picture-postcard resort in Mallorca from the Jumeirah group will offer a great last minute summer escape. Our saving up to £405 per person in a Superior Mountain View Room will make your holiday all the more pleasurable; a fantastic place to relax this July.
