Dreaming of South Africa? Here’s your chance to score BIG with Business Class seats and a hotel stay for as low as $2,000 per person through Expedia, depending on your appetite for accommodation quality.
To be clear, your air travel will be on Delta/KLM and will be in Business class…meaning lie-flat seats. Depending on the flights you select, you will travel on the Airbus A330 (Delta), A350 (Delta), or Boeing 777 (KLM). You’ll fly USA-Europe-South Africa.
The hotels/bnbs I found range in quality, but for example, I found a deal for 7 days in Cape Town from Detroit with Business Class airfare and accommodations at the Hilton Cape Town City Centre for $2,614 per person. To give you an idea of how good this is, flights alone in Business from Detroit are usually in the neighborhood of $5,000-6,000.
Unfortunately, given Expedia’s lack of a search calendar, you’ll have to plug and play with dates, but Spring-Summer 2019 seem to be the hot times. The first example I pulled up is for May 13-20, 2019 and anything a lot sooner than that (think Jan-Mar) seem to be super duper high.
How to Book
As I mentioned, Expedia isn’t the most user-friendly website, but all you need to do is search for a Bundle & Save Flight + Hotel package (be sure to select Business) and plug in your dates and cities. Again, for every 10 or so searches I maybe came up with 2 that were useful and in the <$3,000 range, so it’s really going to take a lot of legwork. To save you some time, here are some deals I found:
As an added bonus, for all of the bookings at the Hilton Cape Town City Centre, the executive floor can be added for $22.
