Last minute Easter deals

By Staff Writer
Easter is just around the corner, and if you want to travel somewhere you need to make plans soon. It seems like the Mother City is the place to be this Easter, with most of the deals there.

However, if you are looking for general Easter Deals, then both Checkersand Pick n Paywill be having Easter deals on.

To save money it’s best to stay at home and have some chocolate, a nice braai, and enjoy the long weekend.

If you still want to get away, though, then we have looked at specials in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, and to Mauritius.

Cape Town

Garden route: 

If you feel like putting everyone in a car, and hitting the road there is a special on to explore South Africa’s gorgeous Garden Route.

The hunt will start at 10h00 to 13h00 on Easter Sunday.

Easter Weekend is a lovely time to spend with your family. Make sure that before you book your mini holiday away, that you have budgeted your money for the rest of the month, and even the year.

As much as it is great to get away, you do not want to be struggling the rest of the year to make ends meet. Staying at home can be just as relaxing as going away – it is all what you make it.
