Turn Back the Euro Clock for Summer Savings with P&V

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 11, 2009) -

Editors Note: A photo and video are included with this press release.

Turn back the clock with PV-Holidays.com, which is returning travellers to the dizzy days of 2008 Euro exchange rates, saving them up to 45 per cent on the cost of summer family holidays to France or Spain. The offer is available on all P&V properties(i) on all dates - including the school summer holidays.

The online European accommodation specialist has launched a 'Euro-busting' campaign on their website for the whole of this summer basing its prices on the Euro to Sterling exchange rate of summer 2008 (Pounds Sterling 1 to EUR 1.28), when holidays were around 22 per cent cheaper than earlier this month (Pounds Sterling 1 to EUR 1.05).

Full details are available at: http://www.pv-holidays.com/beatstheeuro_ms using the promotional code 8258.

These latest deals can also be combined with any other P&V offer currently available, including the 15 per cent early booking discount or the 20 per cent discount on stays over two weeks. Again, more details can be found by visiting: http://www.pv-holidays.com/beatstheeuro_ms

The offer gives a minimum 22 per cent reduction on all properties in the P&V portfolio, including family-friendly holiday villages on France's Atlantic coast, beach apartments in Spain and hotels in the Alps. The offer is valid on all holidays until November 7th.

But in some cases, the savings can be even bigger. For example, one week in July in a three-bedroom house, sleeping up to six people, at the Pierre & Vacances Port Bourgenay Holiday Village would normally cost EUR 2,040 (approximately Pounds Sterling 1,943), but with a Beat the Euro discount, the price goes down to just EUR 1591.20 (approximately Pounds Sterling 1404.91).

The Beat the Euro deal can also be used in conjunction with other offers, including the long-stay discount of 20 percent for holidays of two weeks or more. Two weeks at the same house in Port Bourgenay with a 20 percent long stay discount and a Beat the Euro discount, therefore costs just EUR 2633.28 (approximately Pounds Sterling 2057.88) - a saving of EUR 1586.72 (approximately Pounds Sterling 1,511.16).

This holiday village is in a superb location for a family holiday in the Vendee region of France. Located 9km south of Les Sables-d'Olonne, the 90-hectare car-free village offers numerous activities for all ages, ranging from a nine-hole golf course, an aquatic centre with three swimming pools, six tennis courts, a central lake and a beach accessible on foot. Free children's clubs are included in the price and preferential rates at the Bourgenay golf course are also available to all guests.

All prices quoted are for accommodation-only basis. For more information and to access the offers, please visit: http://www.pv-holidays.com/beatstheeuro_ms or call 0870 026 7144.

(i) Offer excludes Adagio City Aparthotels.
