Twin Centres

The twin centre holiday is a type of holiday that is relatively new to the tourism trade. It is where travellers book a holiday that takes them to two countries. It is essentially two package holidays rolled into one. Mauritius is a favourite for these holidays because of its own attractions and the countries around it within short travelling distance. Read on to find out more about why having Mauritius as a twin centre destination can make all the difference.

What is in a Twin Centre Holiday

To put it simply, it works like this:

1. Book the twin centre holiday of choice to the desired destination at a favoured time of year. Try booking far in advance to get the best deals.

2. Fly to the first destination as standard and arrive at the relevant hotel or villa.

3. Enjoy the country in whatever way seems best. There is total freedom in everything travellers get to do.

4. Arrive at the airport and board the plane. But instead of going home, visitors fly to a nearby destination.

5. Enjoy this second country in much the same way as the first. The nature of the holiday gives complete freedom.

6. Fly home after an unforgettable outing to two separate countries.
