Travel deals: Save nearly $1000 on a holiday on the Danube


Active European holiday specialist UTracks is offering a 'buy one, get one half price' special on its eight-day Danube Explorer to Budapest bike and barge trip.

The self-guided barge-based cycle trip normally starts from $1970 a person, which includes seven nights' accommodation in a two-bed standard cabin, all meals and bike hire, but the deal is for $2955 for two people -- or $1478 each ? a $985 saving.

The tour explores the sights of Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary, and begins and ends in Germany's Passau, while the new barge has a spa, sundeck and massage room.
