View Full Version : Holiday Deals -If you're trying to go on a budget

Thought i would start a thread for anyone who really makes every penny count and (like us) can only really go if there's a good price to be found.

Feel free to add anything you find. Here's a few i've found...



Beware of the packages that include car hire, the extra insurances usually come out more than hiring seperately!

If you are flexible on dates and don't mind going in May or late August, check out Monarch last minute deals.

Last year it was relatively easy to get a family of 4 flights, villa and car for around 1200 all in.

They rarely have October deals though as they are winding up for the season unfortunately.

It seems to be the flights that are causing prices to be more than last year for me...Does anyone know of any methods of cutting costs?...I've looked at BA and Virgin.!?....

Have you checked ba's flight price flying into tampa instead of mco?
It will be an extra drive when you land but ive seen prices around 200 cheaper than going direct.
Other than that indirect or maybe some one like thomson maybe cheaper.

Great! I'll have a look.

For now here's another one to share...329 for a week and only an extra 70 for 2weeks!...


If you see anything please share!..

Also, has anyone seen the Orlando Freedom Ticket deal that Attraction Tickets Direct do?...Great option if you're looking at doing Disney, Seaworld, Universal etc...

The quotes for accommodation and tickets only (no flights) are coming in only nominally more expensive than this year. Must be the flights.

Indirect is often a good bet for cutting costs but you do need to shop around carefully as occasionally you get a good package deal/fly drive.

599 for return flights from Gatwick and 14night accomodation, looks like a good buy for anyone wanting to go in Sept?....
