Quite proud of myself there I googled the chrome and downloaded it, unfortunately the prices are the same! Thank you anyway!

Thanks for the tip, I tried tonight but can't get onto their site so wondered if they might be updating, I will hang on for a bit!

I have found that, with any holiday I look at, the more you look at it the higher the price will be.

For example;

- If a package is £1000 pp and 10 people look at it online, it is likely to drop.
- so If said package drops to £900 pp and 1000 people look at it (both without anyone booking) it is likely to go up to £950 pp

Its all about supply and demand.

On our previous trips we've always flown with Virgin however this time I thought that the prices were ridiculously high, so we're going indirect with BA. When I booked a few days ago the price difference between the flights that I'd booked and Virgin's was a £1000, just had another look on Virgin's website and it's now £1600!! IMHO it's not worth paying all that extra money to fly direct!

sounds great, only thing that puts me off is we are only going for 1 week and didnt want to spend too much time travelling, just out of interest though what would happen if your first flight was delayed, would you lose the next flight or do they just put you on the following one?

When we flew to Vegas via Philly with US Airways our flight from Man was late in so we missed the connecting flight, so they just put us on the next flight. It wasn't a problem.

That's a relief, we also have a friend joining us next month who will be travelling on his own indirect and wasn't sure how it worked with delays and luggage etc, so hopefully should be ok!
