If watching the Olympics and the fabulous Team GB did not motivate you to eat less and train more, it might just have inspired you to travel to the beautiful host city of Rio de Janeiro, and now that the games have finally come to an end, there are some amazing travel deals available for international travellers!
The perfect designation for those who dream of topping up their tan on Ipanema Beach, sipping Caipirinha’s at the famous Belmond Copacabana Palace Hotel, and dancing the night away in the Sambadrome, Rio de Janeiro really does have it all, and the good news is, it’s never been cheaper to visit!
Much like London, Athens and Sydney, Rio is expecting a drop in tourism once the Paralympics come to an end on 18th September, and so in order to fill their beds, hotels that are currently charging hundreds of dollars per night have dropped their rates, in many instances to well under $100 per room per night, to attract those travellers who simply couldn’t afford to visit during the games.
Air fares between London and Rio rarely fell below the £800 mark in the run up to the Olympics, but if you are able to travel between October and November, you could bag yourself a bargain. KLM are currently offering return tickets from London to Rio (via Amsterdam) in November from just £475.00 per person.
Surprisingly, flights over the festive period are incredibly cheap too, with return flights from London City to Rio from just £513.00 per person with Royal Air Maroc, so you can spend Christmas in Brazil for less than you would pay for a couple of weeks in the Canaries!
Finally, if your idea of the perfect Brazilian holiday includes pulling on your samba shoes, smothering yourself in feathers and rhinestones, and dancing like nobody’s watching, now is the time to book your cheap flight and accommodation deal for the end of February, when Rio’s Carnival 2017 gets underway. Swiss Air are currently offering return flights from London Heathrow to Rio for just £473.00 per person during carnival season… and rates like these are simply unheard of at that time of the year!
Let’s go to Rio!
