Virgin prices!

Found a good price with virgin m&m just a couple of days ago but couldn't book until my dh got confirmation from work, just had a look and it's gone up again, only £40 each but the whole holiday is already pricey, I know you can't predict if prices will come down or go up again but it's just always the way when it's time to book! I want to fly to Orlando so we can get the magical express, just have to shop around again!

Im in the same position and posted on another thread. Mine went up from £547 to £663 in 24 hours but 3 hrs later dropped to £624.
Im not booking yet as the time im going I know from what others hv said that the planes were not full not saying they wnt be but consud i only paid £580 for august booking 6 months before i think over £650 is steep. My last time with VA im afraid after the hassel iv had.got vouchers so hv no choice but pay their fares.
Good luck with ur search.

I hope you get sorted too, so annoying you feel like you are paying extra for basically nothing!

Thank you, with miles and money it's coming up at £563.25 which is not a bad price but £46 more than a couple of days ago, don't know if to wait or just grit my teeth and book it!

That's what I'm worried about, I've tried using different devices and clearing cookies etc but makes no difference!

Not sure what to do about the google chrome and firefox, not very computer literate, I'll ask my DH when he gets in!
