CapeInfo's Cost of Holidays Info

We've chosen middle-of-the-road costs within the different parameters – you will find cheaper but, if cost isn't a factor, the sky can be the limit.

Bear in mind these are average prices throughout the year.  Peak season (Christmas/New Year) in coastal cities can be much higher, but Johannesburg doesn't have a peak season at all.  And suburbs can be cheaper while rural areas are frequently much cheaper.
