Which have you been dreaming about longer: trekking the Inca Trail or flipping through the features of the new iPhone 8? Walking among the stars in L.A. or testing out the iPhone X’s new camera phone?

I think we both know the answer – you’d rather tick a holiday off the bucket list than spend over $1,079 on a new mobile (especially when yours is still in perfect working condition).

And good on you! While the money spent on a new phone (which granted, have been described as “the biggest leap forward since the original”) may offer you momentary excitement, a holiday will fullfil you with memories, adventure and new perspective.

So get that mobile off your mind, head to your preferred Travel Agent and book yourself one of these great deals instead:


Fly to L.A. or San Fran from $999 RETURN

Los Angeles

Who wants a new phone when you can fly to La La Land and the Golden City for less than a grand!

Fill up your current phone (which we assume works perfect fine) with pics of yourself strolling down the Walk of Fame, crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and posing next to celebrities in West Hollywood as well as the iconic sites.
