Don't know why but coming up at Total for passengers GBP 1,344.00 for me.
Only a little saving for Miles and Money fare if you have 6,000 miles to use Total for passengers GBP 1,204.00 +6,000 miles
Villas usually work out very expensive when only 3 of you. Expecially in Dec when you 100% need expensive pool heating ontop.
VH have flights and Fairfield Inn, Idrive TOTAL: £1786.05 (Hotel works out around £31/night ontop of flight only price) Only need to pay deposit now balance few weeks before travel.
Also 3%(£53) cashback thru Quidco, brings flight/hotel down to £1,733
Not looked at Charter packages could be something there but probably have to travel Fri/Sat rather than Wednesday.
No bargains I can see unfortunately, although not OTT.

I seem to be having similar problems with prices...Last year we went for 2weeks, stayed at Quality Inn International Drive and flew from Gatwick to Orlando and it cost us around £650 per person! This year the flights alone are more than that. I know the price i got was really good, i did shop around and used a guy i have used before who is really good and i managed to lower his original price but there is a huge difference this year. I guess the cost of fuel has gone up quite alot which much make a huge difference to airlines...also we had lower VAT last year!
Will need to keep shopping around. Want to go at Easter but due to prices i may end up going for Free Dining as onsite doesn't seem to be coming up as much cheaper at the moment.
