Top holidays for two for less than R10 000

22 AUGUST 2023

What would you do with a little more? Would you go on that well deserved break? Believe it or not, it’s possible to enjoy a memorable getaway with your loved ones for under R10 000. Here’s where:Waterfall


With over 300 days of sunshine a year, and vast, beautiful beaches, Durban makes a wonderful holiday destination. A flight from Joburg will only cost about R650 per seat, plus taxes, on Mango. But getting to Durban isn’t the point; it’s what you do when you get there that really matters. Spend time at uShaka Marine World, or – better yet – do the Big Rush Big Swing off the iconic arcs at Moses Mabhida Stadium. Day passes to the aquarium will cost about R200 per adult per day, while the Big Swing will cost R695 per person… and it’ll be a story you’ll tell for years to come!Beach and ocean with a city landscape backgroundMore interested in Cape Town? Great! Then pick a cheap flight on Kulula, and plan a fun trip out to the winelands, a hike up Table Mountain or a relaxing beach day. Why not enjoy an event while you’re in the Mother City? Whether it’s a concert booked via Computicket or a big sports match at Newlands, make sure it’s something that you’ll look forward to – and that you’ll talk about for years to come.

Of course, it doesn’t have to be Durban or Cape Town. The Drakensberg, Garden Route, Mpumalanga, Limpopo… South Africa is packed with amazing places to explore – and local travel agents like Thompsons Holidays will make sure you get your money’s worth on that RCS Loan.Victoria falls waterfall


A trip to Victoria Falls will also live long in the memory – and it’ll make for some spectacular photos on your wall! The flight’s not too long, and the incredible falls are truly one of Africa’s greatest natural marvels. Use the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the amazing wildlife in the area for a truly unforgettable experience. Travel agents like Flight Centre regularly offer budget packages to Vic Falls, so watch their website and plan your trip well in advance.Table mountain and Cape Town city


International travel can be prohibitively expensive, especially when you count in the hidden costs, like border transfers, visas, airport taxes, meals and tour activities. That’s why we’d recommend taking a cruise. Harvey World Travel has a regular list of cruises on vessels like the luxurious MSC Sinfonia – and the good news there is that pretty much everything is usually included! Meals, activities and entertainment tend to all be part of the package – the only extras you’ll pay for are insurance, drinks, personal spending, room service charges and optional excursions. You’ll get to see the world (or at least the big blue part of it), and you’ll have a memorable, recharging vacation to show for it.


Whatever you would do with your little more, you can trust RCS to make it possible with a quick, easy loan of up R125 000. You can pay us back on flexible terms, and you’ll get a decision from us in seconds and the cash in your account within 24 hours. What are you waiting for?
