You live in Sandton with your better half living temporarily in Durban and what could be better than a Valentine’s Day surprise for her, besides you need a break from the rat race in Jo’burg and can also do a bit of business on Friday in Durban. You can get a cheap air flight with ‘Mango’ for R1652 departing at 06h30 and arriving at 07h40. On second thoughts you’ll book a cheap ‘Mango’ flight with a cheap car hire vehicle for a total of R2683 with the hired car for three days and 200 free kms including Standard Collision Damage and Theft Loss Waiver.

You’ll be waiting for her when she gets home after work on Friday and you’ve liaised with her closest friend who will ensure she doesn’t make any plans as you’re planning a quiet evening alone together for Friday night!

For Valentine’s Day on Saturday you’ve booked a cruise on the luxurious ‘Allen Gardiner’ where you’ll cool off with the ocean breeze for three hours while you enjoy a scrumptious five course menu and bubbly for only R450 per person. For dinner you’re taking her to the ‘Fire & Ice Dinner and Dance’ in Umhlanga at ‘The Square Boutique Hotel and Spa’ where you’ll dance the night away as you indulge your taste buds in a delectable three course menu. It may be a good idea to pack your bag before you leave for dinner so you don’t miss your early Sunday morning flight back to the rat race.

Special on Valentine’s day:

You live in Cape Town and your husband is busy studying in Durban. Every year since you’ve been together you’ve always done something special on Valentine’s Day and this year will be no exception. You’ve booked a cheap air flight with ‘Kulula’ for R1668 arriving in Durban around 11h00 and one of your friends is picking you up at the airport and taking you to the ‘Driftwood Cottage’ at Ansteys on the Bluff that has stunning sea views and a cozy open loft style bedroom for R500.00 per night. Your husband is under the impression he’s collecting a package for you from a friend staying at Ansteys and you can’t wait to see the surprise look on his face when he sees you! You’ve booked for a ‘Red Hot Valentine’s Day Party’ at ‘Billy the B.U.M’s’ situated in Morningside, offering special Valentine’s cocktails, various menu options and DJ Tim D’Lux. You’re sure it’s going to be a weekend filled with romance and lots of fun.
