Looks good for Xmas. We got a bargain last Xmas Virgin Holidays direct flights 580pp for flight & hotel(Fairfield Inn) but they were a lot more expensive this Xmas.
Just checked car, can't get 243 for your dates:confused3
looked at 21st Dec~7th Jan smallest car, is that not what your quote is for? coming up at 293 Alamo or 294 Dollar for me.

Looks like it will be booked either today or tomorrow...........will keep you posted......
Am a bit undecided whether to book the hotel through alpharooms or roomsnet - both prices are very similar but havent used either of them before.....what do you suggest?:confused3

i have used alpha rooms many times with no problem, i expect the same with other company as well, whatever is cheapest is the best idea.
