The Rand has been on a rollercoaster of note over the past few years, and things have declined in the last few months. These ups and downs affect everything from the price of petrol to groceries, clothes, and everything in between. All of this is enough to stress you out and leave you in dire need of a holiday.
And then you realise that the fluctuations will also negatively affect the price of that dream holiday you had hoped for.
If you were planning on booking a trip with a travel operator besides Club Med, we’re sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but yes, the price of your holiday will likely be affected. You see, with most travel operators, their price is dependant on the Rand. When the Rand is on a good streak, so is the price of your holiday; but when the Rand takes a dive, your pocket is going to take a big knock.
Holidays are meant for recharging, relaxing, and escaping life’s daily stresses and pressures; so, why should these pressures be placed upon you in the initial stage of planning your holiday?
The simple answer is: they shouldn’t.
That’s why Club Med has ensured that when you choose a holiday with us, it’s exchange-rate-proof.
Exchange-rate-proof your holiday
“At Club Med, we understand that time with family and loved ones is precious, and it is for this reason that we have not increased our rates despite the recent exchange rate fluctuations against the Euro. Club Med wants to give people a reason to be happy and an opportunity to make good memories. Customers can still save up to 15% off their November 2018 – April 2019 departures. These benefits are available to both our direct and indirect customers”, says Olivier Hannaert,
This means that when you book your holiday with us, not only do you get the very best of all-inclusive holidays, but you also get to exchange-rate-proof your holiday. What this means is that once you have paid the deposit on your holiday package, the rest of the package’s rate is fixed. So, no matter what happens to the Rand, your holiday package balance will not be affected.
It doesn’t get better than that, does it? Yes, it does.
Pay in Rands, play in Euros or Dollars
When you book your Club Med holiday, you pay in Rands and can play in Euros or Dollars – without actually having to worry about what things are going to cost you!
“How?” you ask.
Because our holidays are all-inclusive; everything from breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to snacks, drinks*, and entertainment is included in the price you pay upfront. At some resorts, we even throw in flying trapeze and other adventure sports into the mix!
Because you paid for this all upfront (in Rands), you won’t get any nasty surprises notifying you of your purchases in Euros. No more having to convert from Euros to Rands!
With this peace of mind, you’re free to enjoy your well-deserved holiday to the max.
So, don’t stress about how the Rand value will impact your holiday; book your Club Med holiday with a sun or snow specialist, leave your wallet at home, and bring your Club Med happy.
